Child Abuse. It's a pretty simple term that can mean a million different things; neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, psychological abuse, emotional abuse, spiritual abuse(No, I'm not making that up). So lets look at the legal definition:
At a minimum, any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent orNow lets checkout Mr. Paterson's actions,
caretaker, which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation, or an act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm.
THROW THAT MOTHER FUCKER UNDER THE JAIL! These marks were left after nearly two weeks had passed. I understand due process and know that a warrant was put out for Peterson and he had to pay bail, but let some other single black guy in Texas beat the shit out of his kid with a stick and I bet he doesn't get to roam free for four days, let alone four months. You can't just go around assaulting children.
Do I think Adrian Peterson is a bad guy? Yes. I honestly do. The more that comes out about this guy the worse that he looks. He has at least 7 kids by 5 different women, he's been accused of child abuse before(with photographic evidence) and he's a huge fucking moron. You don't beat on 4 year olds and call yourself a loving dad, let alone a decent human being.
And all I can think about is can you imagine if there was video of this? Looking at all the marks on that kid, I would say he got hit at least 25 times. Imagine a video where Adrian Peterson is seen snatching his son up, pulling his sons' pants down, snapping off a tree branch and taking up to 30 swipes at his sons bare ass. Not only would his career be over, he would spend years in jail. I'm glad that at least the pictures have surfaced so everybody can see the damage that he inflicted, but a video would completely bury him. Even some pictures of the wounds shortly after the incident might be enough. But I'm not sure that's how it will play out now, no matter what the Vikings do over the next couple weeks.
Even worse, Peterson doesn't think he did anything wrong. He is downright prideful that he beat his kid so bad that it left lacerations on a 4 year olds ass, sack, and legs, not to mention the defensive wounds on the arms and hands. Here is what his kid had to say about the incident;
According to police reports, the child, however, had a slightly different story, telling authorities that “Daddy Peterson hit me on my face.” The child also expressed worry that Peterson would punch him in the face if the child reported the incident to authorities. He also said that he had been hit by a belt and that “there are a lot of belts in Daddy’s closet.” He added that Peterson put leaves in his mouth when he was being hit with the switch while his pants were down. The child told his mother that Peterson “likes belts and switches” and “has a whooping room."
That's his own fucking son! He probably sees his kid for two or three weeks out of the year and the image that kid has of him is some terrifying man who beats him and shoves dirt in his mouth but buys him nice things. What a piece of shit.
I can count on one hand the number of times I received any sort of physical punishment as a kid, but there is one time that will be etched in my mind forever. Ol' Mr. Ace slapped me right across the face. I was in 3rd grade and he slapped me over a pop can. He told me to take it downstairs. I said no, because it wasn't mine. He slapped me. It was that simple. I wasn't hurt and it didn't leave a mark, but it shocked me to my core...and my dad knew it the moment after he did it. There isn't an action that he regrets more than what he did that day. He didn't defend what he did by saying that's how he was raised. He didn't talk about setting a tone of not talking back or acting right. He was embarrassed and wasn't sure whether or not I would be afraid of him for the rest of my life and that terrified him.
I work with abused kids for a living. I am often put in positions where I have to put my hands on kids to insure their safety and the safety of others around them. I fucking hate doing it. Having an adult put their hands on them takes them right back to the abusive events they experience at home. I see that confusion, fear and pain play out on a daily basis and that's with 4th graders, not 4 year olds. I can't imagine being the cause of that type of anguish to my own son or daughter...of any child for that matter. If you can't raise your kid without putting your hands on them then that means you are too stupid to explain right from wrong to a toddler. Just think about that. You are so incapable of using words and logic that you feel it necessary to physically bully a child into accepting whatever it is you are saying is right or wrong. If that's too difficult for you to understand please cut off your penis or rip out your uterus now.
What Adrian Peterson did has nothing to do with corporal punishment or parenting style. It has everything to do with him being criminally abusive towards his son without an ounce of remorse as he smiles in our face.
Thanks. This has been another PSAce.
