      So, bones must be broken to constitute abuse...?

      If I see someone beating a kid with a tree branch, or a slipper, or a bag of marshmallows... I'm calling it abuse. It's the intent that counts more than the injuries, in my opinion.

          It's a problem that I view a grown man setting out to injure/violently assert himself over a small child as abuse?

              He repeatedly hit a child with a tree branch with enough force to cause injury. What do you think his intent was?

                  Don't want to discuss anything with someone that has different views than you? Well, that's sad. Not quite as sad as defending child abuse, but still sad.

                Disclaimer, beating a child is a bad idea.

                Which is more abusive? Spanking a child as punishment for playing with matches, or, spanking a child because he told the neighbors, truthfully, that you are a drunk?

                We have turned into a society in which right and wrong are mitigated based on notions other than right and wrong. We have turned into a society were there are no expected norms and any concept of morality is either attacked, dismissed or elevated to equality to all others and thereby further diluting the idea of right and wrong.

                In society now, it is a higher moral good to slaughter a child through abortion than it is to raise a child with solid values, a strong moral faith and the idea that there is a real, identifiable and immutable difference between men and women, both being necessary for marriage and child rearing.

                The world is no less deadly and vile today than in the days when switching an unruly child was a common practice.

                  ... other than your disclaimer, we may be on the same page ... as to the disclaimer we would have to have an understanding of "beating" ... does this mean a slap, a licking, a striping, a spanking, a whooping, etc. ... as you have noted the American culture is in a serious morality crunch ... this was brought on by those same folks with socialistic attitudes and ideology who think that corporal punishment at any level is wrong and uncalled for ... just sit down and smile and talk with them ... share doobie ... and teach them that there are no repercussions for doing wrong as long as they memorized those perfect words of contrition ... i'm sorry ... there now everything is better and the other little boy or girl they threw the rock at will be happy to hear that ...

                    " teach them that there are no repercussions for doing wrong as long as they memorized those perfect words of contrition" Because physical punishment must be the only way of teaching people smaller than us. Lets beat them all into submission, because we're too stupid to figure out how to teach without hitting! Makes perfect sense! Lets all pick the laziest way of parenting and do that one! After all if we have to THINK about how to effectively punish someone without hitting we couldn't be control freaks! Kids, dogs, women, men, lets just hit everyone till they do what we told them to! We don't have to hit them hard, just hard enough for them to obey. We can rename it popping so that it doesn't sound as bad as hitting.

      If your point is that the media has ADD then you are correct. The news audience is fickle and has the attention span of a gnat. The media is all about fresh blood, not a clear and through story.

      If your point is that the media has a political agenda then you are saying absolutely nothing new. Though it has shed any pretense at objectivity, the media has always had a political agenda. There were, in the distant past, Republican and Democrat media powerhouses. Now all the Big Media is not only Democrat, but America dismantling Obama Palace Guards Leftists.

      If your point is that children are abused, nothing new there.

      How about something different - Women are also abusive.

        ... yes ... and ... yes ... and ... government interference has no bounds, no stop guards and is fueled by the parrots "know all, see all" comments ... which brings about the liberal hysteria ... which brings about more government interference ... which brings about more digging for nothing stories to make a new headline ... which brings about ... well, we are back to the beginning of the mobius strip ... wait a minute ... the strip has no beginning ... it just goes on and on ...

    Oh, those crazy liberals, thinking it's unacceptable for a 200+ lb football player to beat up on his 4-year-old son.  Hmmm, what does it say about a person who thinks healthy school lunches are a greater abuse of children than this?  (Photos of alleged abuse included in article)

      Read the article and saw the photos.  This is ABUSE!  Any type of physical force used to discipline a child is ABUSE!

          The real problem is you don't consider this abuse! Or maybe just as bad of a problem is that you are using this incident to push your agenda against the Obamas!

            ... one has to believe this "whooping" started with the intent of doing "great bodily harm" ... but then we weren't there were we ... and we don't read minds ... lets hope the 12 in the box get all the facts and make a proper decision, not based on the drivel of the parrots ...

            ... but then too lets not hold our breath thinking petersens stature will not have some effect ... there is a world wide affluenza epidemic happening ... the point is this is everyday an occurrence in America ... and though this might go a bit past acceptance, it would not have made the news except for the present flap with the nfl and petersens notoriety ... so the parrots jump on the bandwagon ... make some headlines which generates bucks ... and when its over move on to the next social issue of interest at the time ... nothing will have changed ... and the real abuse (that is kids really busted up and dead) will continue ... but that's what we get in the throw away society we have become ...

            ... as to the obamas they don't need any help destroying themselves and their credibility ... they have done fine on their own ... and only morons can see a positive side to this 8 years of socialist assaults on American freedoms ... starting with "joe the plumber" ...

    The school lunches aren't bad for the kids, because much or most of the food is dumped in the trash.  The food MIGHT be more nutritious now, but only the trash benefits from the new nutrition standards.  The kids don't like the new foods, and quite frankly, I don't blame them.  Further, the new menu is, at best, debatably more nutritious; it's definitely less tasty.

    "Upon returning to Minnesota, the Mother of the child took him to the doctor to treat the injuries. The child suffered cuts and bruises to his ankles, buttocks, legs, scrotum, and hands. The injuries to his hands are the result of defensive wounds."
    If this isn't abuse to someone, I hope that someone doesn't have children of their own!

    There are actually several studies to suggest a positive correlation between spanking/physical punishment and higher crime rates. Most research on physical punishment used for children is pretty clear on the fact that it increases the likelihood of aggression in the child. Which, to me, seems like common sense. Your parents use aggression to solve problems, you're more likely to do the same.
