On a night the nation watches Ferguson, Missouri with shock and concern, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson took to twitter to compare his child abuse case to that of the ongoing saga in Ferguson.

We saw his lack of understanding during his child abuse case and it seems to fall in line with this latest tweet.  I wish I could be a fly on the wall when Adrian's publicist or agents has a conversation with him on this latest issue.
