Freak: what_now: Multiple sources tell TMZ ... Peterson's son is currently on life support and hasn't had brain activity since 5:30 PM last night.

We're told the family is monitoring the situation closely, and if there is no improvement in 24 hours, the mother wants to remove life support and donate the boy's organs to people in need.

Jesus Christ. I don't know anything about this guy, or well, football, but what the fark? Who beats a toddler to death?

Exact same thought I had reading it. I can see hitting a child, lots of abusers out there. But to beat a toddler to death? To keep hitting a defenseless child till you beat their brain in? Not even human.


To be fair, it may have just been one strike. When you have 150 lbs on the victim it doesn't take much.

Good point. If this wasn't already established I think it can be universally agreed that it's super easy to kill babies.

No.. you don't make AP angry, I would hate to be the Panthers D this week.


yup, he's going to pull a Favre on a day with personal tragedy.  250 yards 3 td's. Book it. Done.

Let's all take a moment to think about the children that this kid will help, since they're donating his organs. It's an awful situation, but someone else is getting their life saved today.

I couldn't concentrate. But knowing myself I'm pretty freakin' sure I'd come to work and be useless anyway. I think there's plenty of people who prefer to fall back on routine and familiar surroundings to deal with tragedy.

Adrian "All Day" Peterson
 
2013-10-11 06:01:03 PM  
Regardless of what Peterson did (or didn't) do for that boy, there's no excuse for what happened.

Strap this child murderer to a chair the middle of the Astrodome with Peterson and anyone who wants a shot, let them have an hour or two to do whatever the hell they want, then empty the Astrodome except for the murderer, strap a bunch of C-4 to the murderer and the dome, and blow that thing to the ground.  Maybe the body gets recovered in the rubble, maybe it doesn't.

Come to think of it, maybe not.  It would be too much of an insult to the Astrodome.  Maybe just strap some C-4 to him and blow him up in the middle of Minneapolis.

I'm not even an Internet GED lawyer, but going by what I read on the South Dakota Legislature's website and Wikipedia, this qualifies as Murder in the Second Degree, not First*. The latter is pre-meditated or includes arson, rape, robbery, burglary, kidnapping, or unlawful throwing, placing, or discharging of a destructive device or explosive. This doesn't.

If he has the best lawyer ever, he may get it talked down to Manslaughter. I'd say it's unlikely, unless the case looks weak for some reason.

If he gets second degree, his penalty is mandatory life without parole.

*Will I be filter-powned?

bborchar: I'm just sickened.  My son is 2 and this is every parent's worst nightmare.

My condolences.


Amen to this. I have a four-year-old and a six-month-old. I can only image the rage and sadness I'd have. I get teary-eyed thinking of it.
 
2013-10-11 06:20:31 PM  
If I were Peterson, I'd steal a car in Sioux City so I could go to the same prison. Then meet somewhere during exercise and take care of business. Then find Jesus and get let out for good behavior.

Seriously though, how is this going to affect my fantasy team?

I'm pretty deep at RB, but I didn't spend a #1 overall on AP to not start him. Is there any chance we get a Forrest Whitaker in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" type of situation here?

ongbok: IAmRight: Mind of the North Star: The mom should be punished too.

I'd say losing your child is a pretty big punishment.

/gosh, guys, won't people think about poor AP and how upset he must be about losing the kid he abandoned?

How did he abandon the kid? If the mother doesn't want to be with him and leaves what is he supposed to do, tie her up and force her to stay?


My guess? Dumb fark Packer fan looking for any opportunity he can to take shots at Peterson and Minnesota in general. Because that's appropriate at a time like this.
 
2013-10-11 06:38:56 PM  

skrame: This is why I have you favorited with the disclaimer "says lots of stupid stuff".


It was one of the least stupid things said in this thread. I mean, really, you want to arrest the mom who came home to find her child dead?

I mean, this thread is full of people who are upset irrationally at the mother while offering condolences to a guy that barely even knew the child existed. I can definitely empathize with it being horrible if he actually had a relationship with this child, but I hardly feel like he's the person most in need of support right now related to this situation. And we have people in here demanding that the person who probably DOES need the most support get punished, with the insinuation that they deserve jail time.

/the mom should get to be the one to take it out on the person who killed her kid with no legal repercussions

On another site, I read that Peterson and the mother split custody of the child. He took care of him during the off-season, and she had custody during the season.

Well, if this is the case, then I retract the comment about him not having anything to do with the child and offer the same condolences to him. I still don't think it's appropriate to call for more punishment of the mother.

To be fair, among species that exhibit sexual dimorphism, infanticide is a viable method of ensuring the passage of your genetic material.  A woman that is nursing with the child of another man will fail to ovulate because of inhibitory hormones produced by lactation.  Only by killing the nursing children will the mother cease to feed and again become sexually active, allowing the new male to reproduce.

That being said we're not mountain gorillas and I hope something gets stuck in that man's urethra.

My understanding was the mother was out and she left him with her boyfriend.  Someone she thought she could trust.  What exactly would she be punished for?
