http://libbitcoin.org/Judge_William_Adams_beats_daughter_for_using_the_internet.mp4

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.

Very hard to watch (I only made it half way through). The initiation of violence is never right. It's particularly bad against a child.

The video was removed, but reading the description made it look VERY biased against the guy.

Also, he beat his daughter for doing illegal stuff. I think he is in his right as parent to do so. (I am not saying that I would do the same in this case... but I would not bash him either).

i don't think parents have the right to beat their kids, no matter how illegal the kids' actions.

Hooray internet for giving kids more rights, or at least more chance at defending themselves!

There's seriously no way to describe it other than as a seven minute assault for which he would have gone to jail had he done it to an adult.  The description is actually pretty benign compared to the video itself.  It's been mirrored all over the place - I can hunt up a link to one of the mirrors if you like.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

I'm not usually one to question parents' discipline, but this is abuse, plain and simple.

You should watch it before passing judgement and backing him up.

If it was against the law to beat the shit out of your kids with a belt, EVERYONE in the bible belt would be in jail.

totally illegal in australia... basically anything other than a light smack with *hand only* (absolutely no weapon of any kind like a belt) would definitely get you charged with assault, no matter the kid's age.

...so i'm surprised to find this is 'legal' somewhere like the u.s.

Ok, I saw the video now.

Yeah, the guy sounds quite... dumb. Wacking someone like that would not do the desired effect.


But I still think that measured violence is a good tool to have around (to be used SPARINGLY it is NOT ok to break your kid teeth with a kick...)

If beating children worked, I'd beat them all the time. But all it does is hurt them and diminish their lives.  Undecided

So when the father is old and frail, do you think it will be OK for the daughter to use the same violence against him if he loses his false teeth or is incontinent on the carpet?

Please watch the video from the alternate link and tell me you still support that as "his right as a parent".

7 minute phyiscal assault on a child =/= parent's "right".

What about a person (any person including a child) to not be physically assaulted?

The elderly ... already know what's right and wrong
There's no evidence that violence towards children teaches them right and wrong. It does teach them to avoid the behavior that triggers the violence, but that's not the same thing.

Sometimes that is just what is needed.

For example, my cousin kept throwing stones at a neighbor window... We tried to explain the brat why it was bad idea, but it do not worked at all...

So his dad hit him a bit in the butt, and told him that if he throw another stone on the neighbor window, he will get hit again.

Yay, no more stones on the neighbor window!



Years later, he got old and smart enough to understand why throwing shit at someone else house is bad idea. But the neighbor guy will not withstand years of stones thrown at him, do not you think?

He also learned that if you want to get your way use physical violence.  Also a pop on the butt is hardly comparable to the 7 minute physical assault in the video.
