I can't even describe how awful this is. Incredibly sad.

TMZ said:
Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son is currently in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital ... after he was allegedly severely beaten by the man dating the mother of his child, TMZ has learned.

The Minnesota Vikings running back immediately left his team to be with his son.

Officials tell us they've arrested the suspect, 27-year-old Joseph Patterson ... who's been charged with aggravated felony assault and battery of an infant.

According to law enforcement, emergency responders arrived to the apartment where Peterson's son was living at 5:46 PM on Wednesday ... and found the child unresponsive.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital and medical experts determined the injuries were consistent with abuse.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the child suffered severe head injuries.



Update: "In a brief phone interview with the Pioneer Press, Nelson Peterson said the injured boy is not Adrian Jr., but is a grandson."

Update2: Police were called to the home after reports said the child suffered choking injuries, the paper reported. However, TMZ reported that the child suffered head injuries.

I wish we could beat the assholes who do this until they die.

My wife's vote is to cut him with a sharp knife. 100,000 tiny cuts everywhere. Then let him slowly bleed to death.

The fact that "normal" (whatever that is) people take any measure of mental joy (whether direct or through feeling like they would be "doling out justice") in the concept of torturing someone until they die regardless of who that person is or what they've done, says a lot about why the more fucked-up ones among us can do such disgusting and atrocious things when they snap, such as beat a small child to death.

I was waiting for this. Obviously we don't really feel that way. We are totally disgusted that someone can harm someone who is so innocent. Facts will show that it wasn't just one hit or one shaking of the child. He repeatedly hit the little boy. Totally and completely uncalled for. If ever there was a need for justice it is in cases like this.

I'll take your word for it - Obviously there's a lot of emotion involved for any human being, as a non-parent I don't pretend to know the horror something like that would bring to anyone with children.

I do hear a lot of people (in general, not here) calling for over the top, violent measures to deal with everything from murderers to child molesters, I'm sure a lot of that is emotion getting the best of people but I do worry that the general concept of "hurting/killing people because they deserve it" is way too prevalent of an attitude in our society for our own good.

"Adrian Peterson also confirmed that he found out two months ago that he was the father of the 2-year-old boy, who died last Friday from injuries sustained in an alleged aggravated assault."
