Re: Adrien Peterson indicted on child abuse charges

I'm hearing there are photos floating around that show this was way way more than just swatting a child with a switch.

Supposedly there are severe lacerations and multiple bruises to the lower back of a 4 year old child.

Sounds like there's a lot more to it than taking a switch to a kid.

I don't doubt it; I wouldn't want to take a whipping from that man!

it was bad enough getting one from Mom!

If you were 4 years old, I doubt you'd remember it.

This appears to be much more than just a whooping. I'm sure every child abuser would love to say it was just a little spanking.

Severe lacerations and multiple bruises on the back of a 4 year old child goes way beyond Grandma taking a switch to your backside.

Re: Adrien Peterson indicted on child abuse charges





There's a difference in whooping your child and beating your child. There is no justification in doing this to a 4 year old. A FOUR YEAR OLD. I could never imagine myself doing this to my child. I lost a lot of respect for Adrian Peterson today. Just because some of us got beat when we were younger, doesn't make it okay.

And I'm reading these photos are over a week after the incident.

That mother F'er needs to go to jail, and I hope he does.

The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child’s back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child’s hands. Peterson then texted the boy’s mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her “mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.”

Peterson also allegedly said via text message to the child’s mother that he “felt bad after the fact when I notice the switch was wrapping around hitting I (sic) thigh” and also acknowledged the injury to the child’s scrotum in a text message, saying, “Got him in nuts once I noticed. But I felt so bad, n I’m all tearing that butt up when needed! I start putting them in timeout. N save the whooping for needed memories!”

Yeah. This isn't good parenting. I'm sorry.



Sorry. Looks like many of us found the pics about the same time. I agree with you Danno. 1000%. Put him in jail. Few (if any) things I can think of worse than something like this. Wanna ban somebody from the NFL? Hey Roger, here's your man.
