Sioux Falls Police: Adrian Peterson’s Son Has Died
October 11, 2013 12:37 PM

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –Adrian Peterson’s 2-year-old son, who had been in critical condition after being beaten, has died from his injuries, according to Sioux Falls police.

Peterson was in Sioux Falls on Thursday, visiting the boy who police said had been allegedly beaten severely by the man who the mother of the boy is dating.

The child that Peterson was seen with this fall at training camp is not the 2-year-old who has died.

Joseph Robert Patterson, 27, was arrested in the case and is expected to be charged in the coming days with aggravated assault and aggravated battery of an infant, in addition to murder.

Police said Patterson hit the boy in the head with a steel rod. Paramedics found the child in grave condition.

“(Adrian Peterson) has our prayers and support from this football team,” coach Leslie Frazier said.

During an impromptu press conference at Winter Park, Peterson said he will be playing on Sunday, and asked for privacy over the situation.

“This is a private matter, and I ask y’all to please respect my privacy and not ask at all about the situation at hand,” Peterson said.

Peterson added, “The good Lord never gives you more than you can bear, can handle — so I’m built tough.”

Fellow running back Toby Gerhart said the team is fully behind Peterson.

“We’re his brothers,” he said. “It’s a chance for him to come here where we rally behind him, support him, whatever he needs.”

Blacks as a rule don't marry, even at higher socio-economic levels.
(doctors, lawyers, graduate degrees, rich athletes, etc.)

The man and woman turn out children with worse prospects, than two parent kids.

So this football players is just doing what his people do; create unsuccessful "families."

No death penalty in Minnesota, so hopefully someone will dish out some prison justice.

Calling sinkspur.  Isn't there some way you can make this tragedy seem like Ted Cruz's fault?  Wait, never mind.  I'll do it for you.  If it weren't for Ted Cruz and his completely irresponsible pocket-lining politics, which is destroying the Republican brand, this guy would not have lost his temper.  Clearly, Ted Cruz is responsible for the death of this innocent child.

If that is true, I hope the prison justice includes some torture first.

My reply to a FaceBook post - - -

I can't read the story. Just the thought of it breaks my heart. Proper punishment for this person is to give a bat to (1) parents that have dealt with rambunctious children and have lived through it; (2) parents that have lost a child due to dirt bags like this guy; and (3) just plain ole angry people that need to relieve their anger.

Man who raised Peterson’s son tired of ‘poor Adrian’ talk
By John DeMarzo/NY Post
October 16, 2013 | 10:09am



The “father” of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson’s son is trying to set the record straight — even though his relation is not biological.

Bobby Ruffin, the man who raised Peterson’s son, Tyrese Robert Ruffin, took to Facebook, saying he was angry at people expressing sympathy for Peterson, because he had never met his son before his death.

Joseph Robert Patterson, 27, the boyfriend of Tyrese’s mother, was charged last week with aggravated assault and aggravated battery and is being held on $750,000 cash bond. Prosecutors expect to ask a grand jury to consider more serious charges against Patterson in the death of the 2-year-old son of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

“So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson s–t,” Ruffin wrote. “Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son.”

Ruffin’s diatribe continued, as he went on to say: “Yes A.P. he was the biological father, but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don’t blame AP for not really caring cuz [sic] him and I both found out recently who the biological father was.

“AP met my son for the first time [yesterday] when my son was already in [a] coma. I was here today when we pulled the plug, not him. He was happily practicing and has no problem playing on Sunday. So yea this isn’t all out yet but I’m sick of the poor AP s–t. He didn’t know or even meet my son. Sorry for the outburst but [put] yourself in my place.”

Tom Wollman, Lincoln County state’s attorney, said Tuesday he will review the recently completed autopsy findings and other reports before looking at any new charges.

“We’ll seek a grand jury review in the near future,” Wollman said.

A message left for Patterson’s attorney Tuesday was not returned, and Patterson’s mother said she didn’t want to comment.

That explains why Peterson decided to play last Sunday.....he had never met the baby/child.

And it appears Mr. Ruffin may have been looking down the road for some financial consideration....which now is gone.
