The Domestic Violence Task Force also asks that citizens follow them on twitter @DallasDVTF and re-tweet and share domestic violence statistics and facts with the #BigDEndsDV. Dallas skyscrapers such as The Omni, Reunion Tower, and the Bank of America building have also contributed to the event by turning their building lights to the awareness color, bathing the city in a beautiful purple.

Minnesota Vikings’ player suspended without pay for beating son

Vikings’ football star Adrian Peterson was suspended for the whole season without pay for beating his 4-year-old son, the L.A. Times reported on November 18.

The tough suspension against the 29-year-old running back came after his recent “no contest” plea to a domestic violence charge filed against him in Texas. Commissioner Roger Goodell decided to ban the player for the rest of the season, partly because he did not believe Peterson seemed remorseful for treating his son so severely. Peterson was put under probation and had to pay fine worth $4,000 for assaulting his son using a tree switch. He will face a decision over whether or not to be reinstated after April 15.
