Didn't something happen to one of his kids a few months ago?

Not good for the Vikings. Bad week for sports.

One died, but it was a kid he didn't know about until that happened.

"After returning home to Minnesota, the child's mother noticed injuries and took the child to a doctor. The doctor then reported the injuries to authorities in Texas."

 

AP will have his day in court, but if the doctor deemed the injuries sufficient to pass on to authorities... that's not discipline.

Need to know more.

In this pathetic society where you aren't allowed to discipline your children anymore, how someone deems an injury to be bad, in a situation like this, has a lot of gray area.

If it was an instance of him going way overboard, that's obviously something he has to get in trouble for.

I'll say I'll agree if it comes out that the 11 year old was swatted a couple of times with the switch and the mark is a scratch.

What you said here is the key though, need to know more. Really is the key with anything.

 

 

EDIT: First story I saw said an 11 year old, link from Chris B above says 4 year old.

If this account is correct, and in fact backed up by recordings of the police interview, he should be banned for life http://t.co/aPW18kiiZr

 

Wow. He busted the kid up way beyond 'discipline'. Who needs a drink?

Yep... so confirmed here, 4 year old... not the 11 year old I had seen in another report.... much more detail here. Not good at all.... and I'll take that drink.

If he's getting indicted for this in the South, one of the few places in America where the kind of barbarism is still socially acceptable, he really messed that kid up. It's just as wrong, but someone's mom thwacking them with a stick does not compare to one of the most physically fit men on the planet doing it.

Yeah... I deleted this quoted comment... as McNulty posted a larger account a minute later.  There is the larger account, and additional info.

In that incident, his child was beaten to death by another man. Makes it even more inexplicable.

Yea, this is awful...way worse than Rice.

People should be allowed to spank their kids and discipline them in this country without fear if social services knocking on their door(If that is the form of punishment you feel works)...however, this isn't discipline what he did if that article is right.

That goes way beyond and the fact that he is 4 makes this even worse.

Serious talk. WTF could a 4 year old have possibly done, that someone considers it intentional and malicious enough to beat them with a stick????

That "my mama used to hit me with a switch" shit is BS. They used to use leaches to cure sinus infections too.

I HATE bad parents. HAAAAAATE.
