Child abuser, Judge William Adams, has an "addiction" which is a "family secret" that the ex-wife
will not elaborate on. Wonder when that shoe's going to drop? And this man is a Judge that handles child abuse cases? :wtf:
<snip>
"Im experiencing some regret because I just pulled the covers off my own fathers misbehavior after so many people thought he was such a good person. ... But so many people are also telling me I did the right thing," she told The Associated Press outside her mothers home in the Gulf Coast town of Portland, near Corpus Christi.

"Hes supposed to be a judge who exercises fit judgment," she said.

And she said the videotaped attack was not a one-off. "It did happen regularly for a period of time," she told NBCs "Today" show on Thursday.

In the same interview, Hallie Adams blamed her ex-husbands bouts of violence on his "addiction," calling it a "family secret." She did not elaborate. Their 22-year marriage ended in 2007.<snip>

4. When I was a child, such beatings with a belt or other kind
kind of strap like maybe a rubber hose were considered okay. My best friend in grade school and her sister were often "spanked" with daddy's belt. (This was in the forties.) Most parents didn't beat their children (mine didn't) but never stepped in when another parent was "disciplining" their children physically. It was considered not minding your own business. I'm happy that people have evolved since then to recognize this as child abuse.
