1029_ap_joseph-patterson_gettyThe man who allegedly beat Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son to death has just been released from jail.

27-year-old Joseph Patterson was released from Minnehaha County Jail in South Dakota this morning after posting $750,000 bond.

The bond was lowered from $1 million yesterday after Patterson pled not guilty in court. He has been charged with second degree murder and 2 counts of first degree manslaughter, as well as aggravated battery of an infant.  He has also been charged with felony child abuse.

Patterson, who was dating Adrian's baby mama at the time of the alleged attack on October 9th, was supposed to be caring for the child while she was away.

Where in the hell did this guy get the money for bail? Hopefully he'll be taken out before he makes it to his next court date. He is a POS and doesn't deserve to live on this earth. Babykiller!

You keep attaching AP's picture to it as if he cares about this. The killer isn't a celeb and the baby isn't a celeb and the celeb doesn't give a damn so why are we suppose to care..
So over this stupid story

I feel so bad for the childs mother. I hope she doesn't feel any guilt. It could have happened to anyone. A lot of my friends aren't with their baby's fathers anymore and we all have different boyfriends. It's a freak accident and can happen to anyone.
