This just astonishes me. Adrian Petersons son was beaten by the mothers bf, he's on life support and isn't expected to make it, but Peterson is still playing?? I understand people cope differently but, this is just off to me. Plus he didn't seem too concerned in the press conference he just gave. He's either got his priorities out of order or he's REALLY good at hiding his feelings about things. He was at the hospital for a few hours in SD but then left back to Minnesota for practice....

I just can't stop thinking about that poor baby. It absolutely stumps me how people can be so cruel especially to kids and babies. I hope the bf gets the book thrown at him. Smh. So sad.


Just read that his son has passed away due to his injuries. So sad. Prayers for the family. Poor baby :( but now this man is going away for murdering a child. He won't have much fun in prison.

Maybe he's in shock?  I saw a report that the man BIT the baby severely.  It is beyond horrible.

That is disgusting. Talk about priorities being out of whack. He should be ashamed. I guess money is more important than a childs life.

I try not to judge grieving people, I don't know what they're going through.

Wow.  Everyone is different but I couldn't leave my child's side, I don't think anyone I know would be able to... much less go to work... a plane ride away.

Me too, I'm chalking it up to shock. because he was REALLY calm and smiley and chatty for a father who's toddler was viciously beaten and could be dying.

I heard a report that he was very close with his son.

Everyone copes differently and we don't all have to cope in the spotlight.
This is a horrible story.

Things like that should qualify as tourture. That poor baby was in so much pain I'm sure. Disgusting.
