For many people in KELOLAND, talk of Adrian Peterson didn't have anything to do with football, and some people used radio to voice their opinion.
Usually when people call into a sports radio station to talk about Adrian Peterson it is about his action on the field, but today was much different.
"I'll open up the phone lines now becaues I would like to get some reaction from the folks in the Sioux Empire," radio host Jeff Thurn said.
During his sports show "Overtime," today radio host Jeff Thurn opened up his phone lines for people to speak their minds about the Adrian Peterson's child story, and his listeners had a lot to say.
"I think he should get twenty minutes with Adrian Peterson," one caller said.
"It's a two year old child. It's wrong in every aspect of what happened," another caller said.
"I don't understand how anyone can ever do this to a child. What could a child possibly do to deserve that, because they can't fight back."
It wasn't just the listeners, as the radio personality weighed in on the topic as well.
"The situation with Adrian Peterson's son is one of those no-nos, no-nos, no-nos that there is no way for me to even wrap my head around how you can even do this to a young man," Thurn said.
"Domestic Violence, wife, kid, whoever you're beating, or DUIs, both of those for me are typically things that come across our wire. Those are unforgivable in my book," Thurn said.
One thing that was evident by what both Thurn and his listeners said, is that what happened to Peterson's infant son is something that families everywhere have to deal with.
"This is very very unfortunately something that thousands if not millions are going through this exact thing."
"This happens everyday, every hour across the country and every different kind of community," Thurn said.
Another caller said he hopes that what happened to a child of a famous athlete can help illustrate the problems of domestic violence.
