Newly released video shows the vicious punch that got Ray Rice a puny two-game suspension

This is the video the NFL did not want anyone to see. The upsetting security camera footage, obtained by TMZ, shows Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice striking his then-fiancee (and now wife), Janay Rice, who then crumples unconscious to the floor of an elevator. (Warning: The video is extremely disturbing.)

The league saw video of the punch — not just the previously released footage of the aftermath — before handing down a widely criticized two-game suspension for Rice. The new tape has quickly sparked further condemnation of commissioner Roger Goodell for not taking a harsher stance against domestic violence.
