Police launched an investigation Wednesday into a Texas family law judge whose daughter posted a YouTube video of him savagely beating her with a belt during a tirade several years ago when she was a teenager.

The video, viewed more than 950,000 times as of late Wednesday, shows Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams lashing his then-16-year-old daughter in the legs more than a dozen times and growing increasingly irate while she screams and refuses to turn over on a bed to be beaten. The video was uploaded last week.

"Lay down or I'll spank you in your (expletive) face," Adams screams. His daughter, Hillary, wails and pleads for him to stop.

Tim Jayroe, the police chief in William Adams' hometown of Rockport, a Gulf Coast community about 200 miles south of Houston, said Wednesday that he's asked the Texas Rangers to assist in investigating whether the video shows anything criminal happened. He said his department began investigating after receiving phone calls from several concerned people who watched the secretly recorded 2004 video.

I want to thank Liberal_in_LA for posting the story about this in General Discussion.

This video is porn for wingnuts. I'll bet this judge (WTF???) goes to church every Sunday. :puke:

6. The mother speaks quietly to her starting around 5:10 and says
"I told you ... don't put KAZAA on your computer"

If you remember, Kazaa was a peer-to-peer software for sharing files and music.
Apparently the parents called it a game, though maybe they were tryng to not be involved with this program. because of the lawsuits, maybe he was afraid he'd lose his job etc. Don't you just love how the mother says "Take it like a woman" to her daughter though obviously attempting to stem her husband's abuse.
LIKE A WOMAN???? What kool-aid is she drinking?

No difference, though... THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO BEAT THEIR DAUGHTER.
The woman should have left this man at the first hint of abuse to protect her child.
This video horrifies and sickens me.

8. I'm with you.
Anyone who watches this and asks IF this is wrong - needs to at least attend sessions with a shrink. The judge and his spouse? They HAVE TO do time for this. NO amount of "counseling" is gonna attone for their viciousness. :grr:

9. Remember........
the esteemed governor of this state has a getaway named Ni**erhead. The tone starts Right at the top. There are some DAMNED FINE folks in Texas, but they're in the minority.

10. I'm sure there are. I would never label an entire state by the
actions of one citizen. And as far as governors go- I'm in exile in the banana republic of Florida, where we have governor Voldemort (Rick Scott), so we have a similar problem. :hi:

5. A warning about the violence would have been good
While it's true that people need to know the truth, the scenes in the video could be triggering for those with trauma related mental illness.

Avoidance is one of the important coping mechanisms taught to people who suffer flashbacks from such abuse. Posters can help fellow DUers help themselves with a warning.

11. So glad that young woman had set up a camera...
...to film the outrageous abuse so she could share it with the world.

I hope the son of a bitch gets everything coming to him, especially after hearing his latest comments about all the trouble that this child has caused him, and how "it's not as bad as it looks".

Oh yes it is, you sick fuck. And your troubles are only beginning.
