Vikings RB and former NFL MVP Adrian Peterson, who is currently serving a season-long suspension for conduct policy violations for child abuse, decided to insert himself into the Ferguson grand jury discussion by making the odd comparison between his legal case and the shooting of Mike Brown by Officer Darren Wilson.
The GRAND JURY DECIDED NOT TO INDICT ME TOO! But that changed a week LATER! MAYBE,BUT NOT LIKELY N THIS CASE #PUTyourTrustNGODnotINtheWORLD!

Peterson was arrested back in September on child abuse charges stemming from an incident where he beat his 4-year-old son with a switch until he bled from his backside. Peterson was suspended from the Vikings and later plead no-contest to the lesser charges, earning probation. The former NFL MVP has since showed little remorse for his actions but has applied for reinstatement, which the NFL has declined to grant him and instead suspended him for the season without pay.
Peterson and the NFL Player’s Association have filed an appeal on the suspension, but even if Peterson does win, it is unlikely he would be allowed to return to the Minnesota Vikings.
