    if it was someone else's kid then i have issues with that.

    if it is your kid and you are not leaving marks and just swatting them on the butt then no there is no child abuse.

    This is another Ray Rice screw up in the making. Just as any sane person could have deduced from the first video of Rice dragging his fiance out of the elevator that he beat her in the elevator it is clear from the wounds on this child that Adrian Peterson brutalized him. You don't need to see a video to guess at what it looked like. He beat this child with a stick hard enough to break skin.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    If so, and it was my kid, I'd have driven down to TX, drugged the player, tied him to the back bumper of my pickup, and drove him around town....for hours or until stopped by the police. He wouldnt have any skin left either way.

Or even create a disincentive to much greater problems.

    What if the boy punched a girl and knocked her down? What if he was caught stealing pills?

    I agree the punishment was severe and I do not condone using a switch, however this is not an injury, it is a painful and unfortunate form of discipline.
    So you believe that there is some possible legitimate reason to do that to a child?

    Jesus Christ! WTF?

    Those marks were made in anger, repeatedly, by someone unable to control himself and who is teaching the same violence to that kid.

    Doesnt matter how 'often.'

    It is a crime even once to leave that kind of physical damage on a child and to terrorize them that way.

    Pretty much the same here...my mother swung a mean wooden spoon too. But no marks. And I dont believe that all 'spanking' is wrong.

    But beating....that is abuse. And that kid has the marks to prove it.

    I am not going to judge someone through the media.

    I don't care what Peterson admitted to or what the boy's parents say...no one here knows ALL the facts.

    I will leave that up to the police/legal system.

    And I consider him innocent until proven guilty IN A COURT OF LAW.

    This habit of people deciding on a person's guilt through media reports is ridiculous to me.

    I highly doubt they would want people deciding on their guilt were they in that situation.

    Peterson already admitted he did it.

    Unless his lawyer arranges a pre-trial deal with prosecutors, Peterson may very well plead no contest to the original charge. I wonder how much leeway a Texas judge has in cases of child abuse.
