Per reports, Adrian Peterson, admitted child beater, will visit the New England Patriots today.
Also today, the prosecution rested in the double murder trial of former Patriot Aaron Hernandez.
W T F!
I thought the latter taught the Patriots their lesson, so the former would not occur. Peterson is a future Hall-of-Fame running back. In 2015 he rushed for 1,485 yards and last season was hurt. At the age of 32, he’s probably done. But, even if he isn’t, I don’t want him playing for the Patriots. I don’t want the guy in the state.
During his trial for physically abusing his four year – FOUR YEAR OLD – son he tried to sell us the excuse that his parents beat him so he did the same to his son because it was part of his culture. I realize psychology tells us this is typical behavior, but I never understood why. If a person suffered the pain and humiliation of being smacked around by Mom and Dad, wouldn’t they want to protect their own child from such deviancy?
What I found even more disturbing are those who want to give Peterson a pass. Huh? Then a co-worker lays on me if Peterson was 22, I would want him on the Patriots. NO! Damn it people, there comes a time when in Bill We Trust does not out weight common decency.
Adrian Peterson should never step on Gillette Stadium soil.
An arrest has been made in the Super Bowl week burglary at Rob Gronkowski's house.
Foxboro police announced Friday they have arrested 31-year-old Anthony Almeida, who has been charged with breaking and entering, receiving stolen property and malicious destruction of property.
The police also said they are searching for two other suspects, 26-year-old Shayne Denn and 28-year-old Eric Tyrrell.
Items taken from Gronkowski's house in the burglary included an Apple Watch, Rolex, and rare coins from the 1800s. Fortunately, those items have been recovered and Gronk will be getting them back. Police are still searching for the guns that were stolen from the house.
Prosecutors in Houston say a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett for injuring a paraplegic woman as he tried get onto the field at last year's Super Bowl to celebrate with his brother.
The Harris County district attorney's office says a grand jury indicted Bennett on Friday on a felony count of injury to the elderly.
Authorities say Bennett was a spectator at the game in Houston when he tried to get onto the field immediately after the game to see his brother, Martellus Bennett, a tight end for the Patriots at the time. Prosecutors say he pushed through security personnel, including a 66-year-old disabled woman who had told him to use a different entrance to access the field.
The Philadelphia Eagles earlier this month acquired Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks.
