Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is publicly urging the Minnesota Vikings to suspend embattled running back Adrian Peterson until his ongoing child abuse allegations have been settled. Peterson was reinstated Monday just hours before allegations of a second incident with another one of his four-year-old sons came to light. “It is an awful situation,” Dayton said in a written statement issued from his office in St. Paul.
“Yes, Mr. Peterson is entitled to due process and should be ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ However, he is a public figure; and his actions, as described, are a public embarrassment to the Vikings organization and the State of Minnesota. Whipping a child to the extent of visible wounds, as has been alleged, should not be tolerated in our state. Therefore, I believe the team should suspend Mr. Peterson, until the accusations of child abuse have been resolved by the criminal justice system.”
What a flaming hypocrite, sure Adrian Peterson’s right to due process must be suspended to ensure that the Vikings Organization and the State of Minnesota be saved embarrassment. Never mind that Peterson has not yet gotten his day in court.
Where does Politicians get off telling private companies how to run their businesses anyway? Here’s a word of advise to the goodly Governor, take your scripted statement back . Re-word it then re-write it . Here’s what you should say “”Yes, Mr. Peterson is entitled to due process and should be ‘innocent until proven guilty.’Signed: Mark Dayton.
You see Governor, after that line everything you said revealed you to be a meddling hypocrite.
Governor here is what you should hang your damn head about .This is what’s shameful , please remove the hood from your face for a minute and look at what your KKK members dressed as cops are doing while you meddle in what does not concern you .
Oh by the way this happened on your watch. So there are no excuses. You see Governor Dayton the higher you climb is the more you expose yourself. Look at the abusive KKK members you have on your payroll and leave the courts to do it’s job. You are not a King….
By the way there are a lot more of these official abuse by your Thugs. Do your job and leave others to do theirs.
You hypocrite …..
Since we went to publication the Minnesota Vikings have bowed to the pressure and once again benched Adrian Peterson for a second straight Game even though , like we said before, he has not had due process.
The take-away from this, is just how powerful the Governor’s pressure is. Yet these bastards never have a kind word for victims of police abuse. Neither do they ever want to stand up and demand that the thugs on the State’s payroll respect the rights of everyone young or old , black or white.
I most definitely discipline my daughter. I have a 1-year-old daughter and I discipline her,” Bush said on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show, via CBS New York. “Obviously every person is different. And I definitely will use my best judgment to discipline her, depending on the situation on what happens. I definitely will try to … obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on, again what the situation is.”
In a conversation with Jim Rome for CBS sports.
“I’m from the South. Whipping is … we do that all the time,” the former basketball star, who was born and raised in Leeds, Alabama, said. “Every black parent in the South is gonna be in jail under those circumstances. I think we have to be careful letting people dictate how they treat their children.” When Rome contended that it doesn’t matter where someone is from because “right is right and wrong is wrong,” Barkley disagreed. “I don’t believe that because, listen, we spank kids in the South,” he said. “I think the question about did Adrian Peterson go overboard. … But, listen, Jim, we all grow up in different environments. Every black parent in my neighborhood in the South would be in trouble or in jail under those circumstances. … As far as being from the South, we all spanked our kids. I got spanked, me and my two brothers.”
“This goes across all racial lines, ethnicities, religious backgrounds. People in disciplining their children. People with any sort of Christian background, they really believe in disciplining their children,” Carter began. “My mom did the best job she could do raising seven kids by herself. But there are thousands of things that I have learned since then that my mom was wrong. This is the 21st century. My mom was wrong. She did the best she could, but she was wrong about some of that stuff she taught me. And I promised my kids that I won’t teach that mess to them. You can’t beat a kid to make him do what you want to do.”
Hmmmm. Eagles coach Buddy Ryan in 1989 cut Cris Carter following the pre-season. Carter later admitted that Ryan released him because of alcohol and drug abuse, including large amounts of ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana, and credits his former coach with helping him turn his life around as a result.
This Pharisee was allowed back into the NFL to play and is now in the Hall of Fame now here he is standing in Judgement of others. Let those without sin cast the first stone.
