UPDATE (November 3rd, 2011 – 11:44am: Hallie and Hillary Adams went on the Today show this morning to clear the air about the video and abuse that took place in their household.
WARNING: The video that you are about to watch is graphic. Judge Williams uses prolific language (as do I, so that’s not what the warning is about) while beating his daughter with a belt multiple times.
I am absolutely disgusted after watching this horrendous beating. The young girl, aged 16 at the time of this incident has ataxic cerebral palsy that provided her with an intense fascination with technology. After illegally downloading games and music that her father wouldn’t let her enjoy because of his ass backwards beliefs, she had to be subjected to beatings much like slaves endured.
A disabled woman has taken revenge on her father – a family law judge – by posting on YouTube a secretly filmed video of him beating her with a leather belt.
Taken in 2004 when the girl was 16, the footage has swept the Internet after she decided last week to make it public by uploading it on YouTube and it was then posted on Reddit.
This afternoon Judge Adams responded to the video, saying: ‘It happened years ago.. I apologized. It’s not as bad as it looks on tape.’
As a result of the furore, the video was being examined by the District Attorney and previous controversial judgements Judge Adams made in cases involving children have come to light.
The young girl, Hillary Adams, now 23-years-old, has received many tweets and apologies since the release of this video. It has now gone viral and gained much attention, including a FaceBook page urging people to not re-elect the Judge. She has also been very outspoken about the incident on her Twitter page urging people to offer the Judge help instead of reacting with hatred.
She said: ‘My father’s harassment was getting really bad, so I decided to finally publish the video that I had been sitting on for seven years.
‘It had happened before, and had been escalating,’ Adams said. ‘I set up a camera, and I caught it.’
From her Twitter account, she tweeted: ‘Please spread the word that my father needs professional help and not hatred. We can offer him the tools to be a better person.
‘It is my wish that people stop threatening my father and start offering professional help. That is what he really needs.’
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.
