All over the internet defense of him. I just...what? I guess I really am crazy because I don't care how you grew up, this is just not acceptable but wow, the defense that this is 'normal' all over the place just shows that abuse is completely systemic and it's a no wonder we are a sinking ship.
I am not a fan and have taken heat for him. Actually, I'm glad this came to light.
It's not easy being a princess, but hey, if the crown fits.
I think he went too far, but I also think we've swung too far to the opposite extreme: parents allowing any and everything, with no consequences. I believe we've created a generation of self-important, chronically misbehaved brats.

I can't argue with your logic. I think all of this self-entitlement needs to end. I was just commenting to my kid today how respect has been lost. I think respect goes a long way. Parents want to be their kid's friend. That is not going to work well in the long run. I tell my kid all the time, I'm your mother, not your friend.

idk the extent of the beating. The kid is 4yo. IMO a swat to the bottom is nbd. But maybe it was more than that.
No MAS.

The uproar about this, I think, is that he newly found out that this is his kid. The other piece to this puzzle is that many people are extremely upset that his other child was beat to death, yet he does this. I mean, who knows, really what happened?

It's like when I take my kid to school and parents want to drive their 2-seater, yet a small child should not be in the front seat until they are 12 years old, but I digress.

Someone has to speak for the child, since they can't speak on their own. Yet many people don't want to get involved.

I didn't feel so passionate about this, until I came a parent myself.

There are actual delineated lines where a doctor would never HAVE to call police. But you leave marks all over a child that are clearly visible a week later and you need therapy.

But what most infuriated me was all the defenders who never took one look at the photos on twitter the other night. You could hardly NOT see them they were so widespread. The descriptions as well if anyone bothered to read.

I also have no doubt he grew up with it. That doesn't mean it's right. Or effective. And at four years old I just can't even imagine what a 4 year old could possibly do that warrants 14-15 lashes with a switch. And in this case it was apparently some video game infraction. 4. Years. Old.

I see your point, Chupie.

I do think he went too far.

I also think that football itself is a problem. Men are paid a King's Ransom to be violent and aggressive, yet expected to dampen those urges in real life. Given the number of players currently charged with violent behavior outside the stadium, those expectations don't seem to be realistic. Or perhaps violent and aggressive men are drawn to football, and that same quality simply spills over to real life as well. I don't know. I'm not a fan.

If this proved anything it's that football fame only brought to light how systemic this problem is. Probably the same with Ray Rice. These are wide wide problems and there is a LOT of it out there.

Let's not give boxing, wrestling or MMA a pass. Floyd Mayweather is a known abuser, wrestling has documented cases of domestic violence (murder, suicide as well), there are two cases right now of MMA fighters who beat their girlfriends going through the courts now. One almost beat his girlfriend to death.

Congress is getting involved, but only focusing on the NFL. Wrong move. They should focus on sports overall.

Or let me rephrase that. Republican congress. Look at the list of times the republicans in congress and the conservative wing of SCOTUS have tried desperately to limit the Violence against Women Act.
________
VAWA was drafted by the office of Senator Joe Biden (D-DE), with support from a broad coalition of advocacy groups. The Act passed through Congress with bipartisan support in 1994, clearing the United States House of Representatives by a vote of 235195 and the Senate by a vote of 6138, although the following year House Republicans attempted to cut the Act's funding.[1] In the 2000 Supreme Court case United States v. Morrison, a sharply divided Court struck down the VAWA provision allowing women the right to sue their attackers in federal court. By a 54 majority, the Court's conservative wing overturned the provision as exceeding the federal government's powers under the Commerce Clause.[2][3]

VAWA was reauthorized by bipartisan majorities in Congress in 2000, and again in December 2005, and signed by President George W. Bush.[4] The Act's 2012 renewal was opposed by conservative Republicans, who objected to extending the Act's protections to same-sex couples and to provisions allowing battered illegal immigrants to claim temporary visas.[5] Ultimately, VAWA was again reauthorized in 2013, after a long legislative battle throughout 20122013.[6]

I saw a joke after the whole Ray Rice thing broke (again) saying "Can the NFL be given a "Women are people" training course. But frankly, it seems it needs to be a course for most American males as far as I can see. And probably needs the additional "Fetuses become Babies and Children: Why you should give them the same attention you do before they are born." course.
