Curtis Shaw Flagg joins the AMp to talk about trends on social media and inadvertently began a huge conversation about Adrian Peterson and corporal punishment.

Peterson has been indicted in Texas for the physical abuse of his 4 year-old child with a ‘switch’. News outlets have reported that Peterson has admitted he was excessive, but was disciplining his child the same way he was disciplined. Photos of the child’s purported injuries were released over the weekend showing welts and broken skin on the child’s legs.
