My 2 Cents: Adrian Peterson Child Injury Allegations

Posted: Updated:

Adrian Peterson's response to being indicted for whipping his little boy with a tree branch would have been laughable if the offense wasn't so sickening.

The All star running back said he is not a child abuser, but he clearly went too far in disciplining his 4-year-old son, and maybe another 4-year-old son, too.

And that brings me to the absurdity of his statement…after defending his style of disciplining his son, he has the audacity to say, "I am not a perfect parent."

Not a perfect parent?

That's insulting to all of us who really are parents.

Peterson has been called by one publication football's MVP, Most Virile Player.

It's reported that Peterson has five to seven children out of wedlock by different women.

When ESPN tried to nail him down on how many children he'd fathered he answered, "I know the truth and I'm comfortable with that knowledge."

Garbage, he had a son who was beaten to death at age two by another man, and Peterson had never even met his little boy.

Comfortable with that knowledge?

Parent?

Parent's protect their children.

Peterson's All Star, All American image has been rightly shattered. Now he needs to stand up like a man, like a dad, and try to put it back together starting with his own, many children.

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's My 2 Cents.
