    The Vikings have re-activated Peterson (they got hammered yesterday). Roger Goodell (NFL Czar) has now hired three females to formulate a league ethics policy.

    Apparently the Vikings owner hasn't been watching the blowback from the Rice debacle.

    Those marks were made in anger, repeatedly, by someone unable to control himself and who is teaching the same violence to that kid.
    This spanking was done with a thin switch (A thin branch from a tree), I've been walking through the woods and have been whipped accidentally with a branch let go from the person walking in front of me.

    Yes even a light swat caused by walking into a switch can cause bleeding and whelps.

    I don't know how hard he swat the kid, and it was a bit much, but abuse akin to locking a kid in a closet for a week or something like that, no. I just don't know if criminal abuse fits, I do think bad parenting and severe punishment applies. Too severe even, yes.

    In addition to some males, or will they do this on their own?

    I think indicting Peterson is ridiculous...I have no problem with a parent spanking his child on the butt with a switch or belt....It was done to me and all my friends growing up and we turned out pretty well.

    Not only that, but almost all media outlets I've seen & heard use the term "tree branch", which insinuates something much worse than a 'switch'.

    I don't approve of using switches, but I also don't approve of misleading information in a thinly veiled effort to form public opinion.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    To the point of causing scratches/cuts and drawing blood? That is abuse.

    NP, look at the pictures in post #83 (quoted from an earlier post). That is much more than simply getting the switch. The boy in those pictures is 4-years-old. There is no reason to strike a child so hard as to leave marks like that. And so many of them. He must have been out of control. I read those pictures were taken 4 days after the incident, so initially, they must have been much worse.

    Based on the evidence, and reports that the child said "Daddy Peterson hit me on my face", if those truly are pictures of the child in question and the the boy made that statement, he absolutely should have been indicted.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Whatever was used was of sufficient substance to leave consistent long bruising that wrapped around the body. This wasn't a whispy little willow tip.

    Those aren't the marks of a single whip of a tree whip. Those are repeated lashings by someone out of control with their anger.

    What the hell did the kid do? Take the family car without permission? Hell, he is only 4 yrs old.
