Adrian Peterson Says Media Can’t Label Him A Child Abuser Because There’s No Video
Adrian Peterson is a world class RB in the NFL, the alpha male of the RB position as of right now. Peterson can beat a bunch of people on the field, it’s his off the field beating back in 2014 that rubs people the wrong way. Graphic photos revealing severe scars on Peterson’s 4-year-old son got him suspended for the remainder of the 2014 season.
Peterson insists his case is different than Ray Rice, because his wasn’t caught on video:
“I find satisfaction in knowing the people that actually know me as a person and know my heart and that see me around my kid, they know that to be totally false (him being an abuser). And I understand that the world that we live in, people are so quick to make a judge, to be judgmental based off what they see or what they hear. I’m totally different than that. For example, with the Ray Rice situation, before the video came out, I was like, I don’t know what happened. I’m not going to just sit here and say this is what happened, this is what he did to her. Now when the video came out that was just kind of obvious. Because there was video, there was footage.”
I think his lawyers need to inform to stop talking about this.
