Thank you for putting this in words better then I could. I really agree with the whole guilty before being innocent. Just look at the Duke lacross team. Also I will give an example. I dated a girl not long mind you but when she would drink she would turn nasty about cocktail number three. She punched me in the jaw in one room. I went to go pack my stuff up and leave as I will never be with anyone that lays a hand on me. She came charging at me and I grabbed her by the throat (natraul instinct to stop her from attacking/hitting me) as she was going to hit me until she stopped and put her fist down and then I left leaving my stuff behind and never seeing her again. If camera's would have been in one room they would have seen her charge me and grab her. That video would have told a much diff story then what really happened. Do you think the media would project me protecting myself?
I also agree about Peterson. I have a son. I have no problem tanning his butt. Though I believe I have raised him right and normally giving my soon the look of death and saying his middle name stops any bad behavior. What AD did was not disapline it was abuse. One swat on the but and sending the child to timeout is disapline.
