Prayers to AP and his family. And swift justice to the miserable SOB that hurt that child! No pit in hell is deep enough.

There is a special circle in Hell reserved for those clueless, beyond-hope dimwits who choose to beat children...

Sad how Peterson's ex felt she needed a "man" when she should have placed her son's welfare ahead of her own selfish wants.

What a coward , they need to let Adrian spend some quality time alone with the guy for about 5 minutes, so he can feel the rath of a father who's child was beaten by the black thug .A two year old the worst kind of ass wipe alive who would beat a baby.

People abusing children should get life in prison, period. How damaged one must be to damage an innocent soul. Women should choose better when exposing their offspring to others. Praying for the little one to recover fully from this abhorrent crime.

@Openminded1 Violence only begets more violence.

I hope that this young boy will fully recover, but the fact that he was unresponsive when he was found doesn't bode well.  

Perhaps, in the long run, this will inspire Mr Peterson to avail himself op the NFL's media savvy to campaign for serious and long-term penalties for anyone who dares to raise a fist against all vulnerable persons, including, of course, children.  Face it - it's high time that such punishments were on the books everywhere, and that requires a NAME heading the movement.

@AdrianSloan maybe life without parole is the best way to handle it, but if enough child abusers got a noose, maybe it wouldn't happen so much.

@rpearlston @Openminded1 most of what you posted is true and your sentiment is nice, but in the real world of cowards like this jerk who beat up a 2 year old the only true justice sometimes is street justice. ass wipes like this punk only understand violence. guys like this beat women, children and kill cats and dogs. This is the type of punk who needs to get is ass kicked into a coma.
