It used to be called the “Rule of Thumb” where you couldn’t discipline with a switch larger than your thumb. Outdated and cruel it was outlawed long ago.
As with anything, there are those that abuse the privileges afforded them.
Today’s children have never been hit, in fact THEY call the police on their parents. The system has been disturbingly twisted in favor of growing up a criminal.
No longer are we allowed to teach God, truth, justice or the American way. Their is no American way anymore.
The United States of America has long ago banned disciplining your Children.
Is it any wonder our children respect nothing and are jailed at all time high rates.
The prison system is big business in America -we lead the world in this category.
They’ve banned School prayer, a moment of silence and the pledge of allegiance to America and to the Flag.
Adrian Peterson disciplined his child and therefore we must be outraged and hand him a stiff prison sentence.
Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, released this statement:
“Adrian Peterson has been informed that he was indicted by a grand jury in Montgomery County, Texas for Injury to a Child. The charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son. This indictment follows Adrian’s full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened. He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.”
Peterson’s stance is that he’s merely giving his children the same punishment that he received when he was their age, and which he thinks helped teach him responsibility and manners.
Nonsense, America wants more criminals to jail. More robberies, more home invasions, more kids who have no respect for authority and do what they please.
America has a prison system to feed.
Take president Obama’s lead here and do nothing. It will all fix itself. No need for worry, they kids will be just fine.
Just one man’s opinion so you probably shouldn’t listen.
You should listen to the media and follow like sheep for that is the New American way.
