Jesus H Christ. Hit a kid with a switch and have the cops called on you??

What in the actual hell?

 

I'd bet money that was how AP was reprimanded when he was a kid.  When I first read what he supposedly did I just remembered the community episode where Troy brings his grandmother who makes Britta go get her a switch so she can hit her with it.

They're right there in the Deadspin link

 

 

 

The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child's back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child's hands. Peterson then texted the boy's mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her "mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch."

Peterson also allegedly said via text message to the child's mother that he "felt bad after the fact when I notice the switch was wrapping around hitting I (sic) thigh" and also acknowledged the injury to the child's scrotum in a text message, saying, "Got him in nuts once I noticed. But I felt so bad, n I'm all tearing that butt up when needed! I start putting them in timeout. N save the whooping for needed memories!"

What a bunch of pussies. TMZPN is going to push this story to the limit even though the courts didn't see reason to allow charges.

 

I think I'm a bit younger than most regs and this was the norm for my generation as well. I wouldn't do it myself, but it's a way of discipline.

 

What?  Belt is one thing.  Kid had scabs from open wounds.  Also, it is very illegal.

I'm younger than a lot of guys here.  My mom used a wooden spoon on me, but it was never used on bare skin and never left a mark, much less a welt or bleeding.  And I was always spanked on my butt.  

 

The kid was 4.  You don't do this to a child of any age, but you certainly don't do it to a 4 year old.  Stick the kid in the corner and give him a time out.

This is going to be interesting to watch.  Culturally, many in the south would probably think nothing of this type of punishment.  Others would think it cruel and unusual.  My own father was a southerner who used cruel and unusual physical punishments, but I would never condone using them on my own children.

Yep, the kid wasn't old enough to know right from wrong..
