Oh modern technology! You gotta love it. This beautiful young lady decided to video her father who is a Family Law judge beating her with a belt and posted it on Youtube. When I watched it, I was stunned to say the least. It was hard to believe that anyone in this day and age would be using corporeal punishment on their child, especially a family law judge. What made it worst was the fact that her mother was in on it.
This young lady has cerebral palsy, which just makes me cringe. She was caught downloading music to her computer. Hello, that's what teens do. I disciplined my daughter a hundred times when she was a teen for downloading music and virusus on the computer. Did I resort to beating her, no.
During the beating with a leather belt, the judge said that he was going to beat her into submission. Her mother told her to lay on her stomach and take it like a woman. How sick is this? The young lady was 16 years old. Not only that, we as woman are suppose to allow some man to beat our ass. I don't think so. This is what you want to teach your daughter?
This brilliant young lady understood abuse, and knew that her father needed help. She also understood that abuse gets worst not better. She hold on to the video for 7 years, and finally decided to post it last week so the public could get a glimpse of who he really was. Why, because she said her father was now harassing her. The judge when questioned about beating his daughter, stated that it wasn't as bad as it looked. He also said that he had apologized. The mother apologized to her daughter years ago, and left the marriage. I wonder whay?
I'm happy to say that Judge William Adams is being investigated. I can't image this man making a decision about anyone's life after seeing the video. As of yet he hasn't been removed from the bench, but it has been decided that a visiting judge should hear his cases until the investigation has been completed.
I applaud this young lady for having the courage to expose her abusive father. She now regrets posting the video, but believes that he needs help and exposing him was the best way of pushing him into some kind of therapy. Applause! Applause!
