    Appears you are right about a single grand jury. I am just going off memory. Which if serves the story I remember that little factoid from is from ESPN. Oh well.

    There was an article, at profootballtalk.com, that cited an incorrect headline from local news.

    I have 3 kids. I can't say that any of them have ever looked like I horsewhipped them after I spanked them. If your 4 year old looks like you horsewhipped him after you spanked him, then you have done something wrong.

    He literally beat a child bloody, leaving scars.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Lets face reality - and it is not a politically correct topic - the NFL has a brand problem as far too many of its players are simply low life thugs who most corporations appealing to a wide mass appeal audience would not want as the face of their image. Once you accept that reality - decisions like the one here become very understandable.

    I didn't see scars. What I saw were injuries consistent with a switch that wasn't properly prepped. Its one of the reasons I don't use them. Its my opinion on the matter, your not going to sway me otherwise. I don't think Mr. Peterson should have been charged in the first place. The child is his to discipline as he sees fit. The fact he actually disciplines his children is a rarity in society anymore I applaud anyone who would. It shows he actually cares for his children's well being and success as an adult. So I am more than willing to give Mr. Peterson the benefit of the doubt in his actions regarding his children.
