Aransas County Court-At-Law Judge William Adams

11.2.11

This is a horrendous video, it’s one of the worst things I’ve seen online.

I think it’s also important that we see it. The description reads:

2004: Aransas County Court-At-Law Judge William Adams took a belt to his own teenage daughter as punishment for using the internet to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time. She has had ataxic cerebral palsy from birth that led her to a passion for technology, which was strictly forbidden by her father’s backwards views. The judge’s wife was emotionally abused herself and was severely manipulated into assisting the beating and should not be blamed for any content in this video. The judge’s wife has since left the marriage due to the abuse, which continues to this day, and has sincerely apologized and repented for her part and for allowing such a thing, long before this video was even revealed to exist. Judge William Adams is not fit to be anywhere near the law system if he can’t even exercise fit judgement as a parent himself. Do not allow this man to ever be re-elected again. His “judgement” is a giant farce. Signed, Hillary Adams, his daughter.

I’m putting it behind the fold. If you know someone who is being abused don’t stay silent.

In the US and Canada you can call 1-800-4-A-CHILD if you are being abused or know a child who is. You don’t have to be an adult to make the call. Someone will listen.

To reiterate, this is a shocking and disturbing video, but some of us need to be shocked and disturbed to be willing to take action.

Act.
