Is Spanking Okay?

Do you think corporal punishment is acceptable?

After a grand jury indicted NFL player Adrian Peterson on a felony charge of child abuse, his lawyer spoke out saying that Peterson used "a switch to spank his son" in doling out discipline much like "he experienced as a child growing up in East Texas."

Basketball player Charles Barkley has defended this same cultural argument, saying "I'm from the south. Whipping, we do that all the time. Every black parent in the south is going to be in jail under those circumstances."

On "New Day" Monday, Marc Lamont Hill argued that spanking 'can be done effectively.'

But CNN commentator Mel Robbins said spanking is part of  'lazy and dangerous parenting.'

Heavy rain and damaging wind impacted the city and much of the southern Baja Peninsula.

The landfall wind speed ties Hurricane Olivia in 1967 for the strongest hurricane to make landfall on Baja California.

Odile is expected to track north along the peninsula, weakening in the next few days but delivering heavy rain.
