To Beat or Not to Beat…that is the question…

Cowboys – Josh Brent – KILLED someone – drinking an driving and only got suspended 10 games
Wes Welker – suspended 2 games for using Adderall – Ray Rice was suspended indefinitely for knocking the his then fiancé the bleep out..and most recently..
Adrian Peterson beat his kid with a switch and will most likely only be suspended for 6 games (but I think that has yet to be determined as the charges are so new)
By the way he was quoted as saying: “never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.”

Isn’t that what a huge percentage of abusers say? Oh, I’m sorry, please forgive me I didn’t mean to hurt you…at least that’s what I’ve come to conclusion based on my experience in Lifetime movie watching.

I have a friend that actually posted a complaint on FB:
“My view of the nation of nosy liberal pussy children raising parents!!! Mom arrested for letting kid walk to park. So me mom was a criminal!!! Adrian Peterson indited for spanking with a switch so also me grandmother was a criminal wake up people u turned out fine and mind ur own fucking business!! ur creating a nation of pussies!!!”

This person was upset because a woman was arrested for allowing her seven year old (alone mind you) to walk to a park about a mile away from the house. Now I don’t think she should have been arrested BUT it did need to be brought to her attention (shockingly..I mean really??? who doesn’t know that you do NOT let your little walk the street by.themselves….There are way to many freakoids out there that WILL take and do bad things and kill your child…don’t you people listen to HLN??) anyway..I could rant on this topic all day long but moving on to my friends other complaint..

Adrian Peterson..indicted (friend totally spelled indicted wrong) for child abuse. He slashed his sons leg with a switch (because that’s how he as know..) Adrian Peterson..come on man…your 2 year old DIED at the hands of your baby mama boyfriend (due to chile abuse) and your going to scar your other son by damaging him yourself?? Disgusting.. I am not saying I am pro or anti corporal punishment of our children but even the line has a line and this…obviously is crossing it. And by the way…just because you are a spewing out God this and God that does not make your actions OK. Does not mean that you are a good hearted person. Actions buddy….actions…

OK so I think I have pin pointed both of the FB topics on friends post..A couple more..its says “wake up people u turned out fine” Really? Did we? I did..I was not beaten nor was I out roaming on my own..I had a group of friends and we roamed the neighborhood..travelled in packs or at least pairs! I also lived in military housing where the neighbors all looked out for us kids..If “Johnny” was out roaming the neighborhood believe me all the lookey loos (mom included) knew what he was up to or at least they were going to find out…. “U turned out fine” Notice friend did not say “I” turned out fine…exactly..your grandma beat you with a switch! of course you did not turn out fine…you drink a little, I am sure if you looked inward there are more issues that stem (pun not intended..happy accident) from being beat with a switch. I say this with peace and love of course..just pointing it out.. If I was in the south I would have to say “Bless friends heart”.

“and mind ur own fucking business” This one is the best…These children..that are being abused. They are our business. As a community it is our duty (remember the old saying “it takes a village’) to make sure these kids are safe. The kids are going to go to school with your kids. They are going to share their darkness – with the other kids on the playground. Those kids are going to bring it home and share their new found darkness with an animal in your house or with the other kids in the house or with the neighbor kids. It is a sickness that keeps on giving..

Thank you for letting me rant and my apologies if you do not share my views but that is totally OK.. I don’t judge your thoughts so don’t judge mine…

Now I say…Wake up people..
