Mark Berman of Channel 26 broke the story - although it included zero details about the charge.

As for if this was child abuse, Texas defines it separately in a family law chapter. So abuse is not a charge, but it is very broadly defined to include pretty much all violence against a child. You can see the very lengthy definition here: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/FA/htm/FA...

Correct, injuries are the key. Texas is not anti-corporal punishment.

I sure hope the NFL doesn't rush to judgment on this in hopes of making up for Rice.

Per 610, Peterson said that if the child were not so tough and would have cried, he would have re-evaluated going on. He considered what he was doing was a "normal" child whipping. The switch caused extensive wounds, severe scrotal trauma, leg cuts to mention just a few. "Daddy had a whipping room with lots of belts and whips."

This was all caused by the child shoving his brother off of a video arcade motorcycle.

"Ray Rice" who ?
That's the mentality of the media, because this sounds like it will be a bigger story because of the subject matter and the fact that it involves a bigger NFL name, so the media will drop Rice like a "hot potato" and focus laser like on the story involving AD.

Just saw the pictures. Blake and I are arguing about it. I definitely feel it crosses the line into abuse. Blake does not.

Usually by the time they get back from being told to go cut a switch, you don't have to use it.

Doesn't sound good...

Quote:
The “whooping” – as Peterson put it when interviewed by police – occurred in Spring, Texas, in May. Peterson’s son had pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch – which he consistently referred to as a “switch” – removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly.

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!”

In further text messages, Peterson allegedly said, “Never do I go overboard! But all my kids will know, hey daddy has the biggie heart but don’t play no games when it comes to acting right.”

According to police reports, the child, however, had a slightly different story, telling authorities that “Daddy Peterson hit me on my face.” The child also expressed worry that Peterson would punch him in the face if the child reported the incident to authorities. He also said that he had been hit by a belt and that “there are a lot of belts in Daddy’s closet.” He added that Peterson put leaves in his mouth when he was being hit with the switch while his pants were down. The child told his mother that Peterson “likes belts and switches” and “has a whooping room.”
