Vikings running back Adrian Peterson’s indictment on reckless or negligent injury to a child stems from a case of old-school corporal punishment.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the incident in question stems from “disciplining of a son with a switch.”

How you view that — as an act of parental discipline or as child abuse — depends largely on your age and geographic location.
