WARNING: THE VIDEO MIGHT BE UPSETTING TO SOME
I’m not sure when Judge Adams is up for re-election, but I’m doubtful if he will be re-elected after this video went viral last night . Coincidentally this guy is a family law judge. There again we’re talking Texas, the same state that executes the mentally ill, so he just might be re-elected with a pat on the back.
His daughter Hillary Adams who was born with ataxic cerebral palsy, recently uploaded this video of him whooping the hell out of her when she was sixteen yrs old, in 2004, for downloading games and music. Her mother joins in.
And it’s not just his daughter Hillary, a lot of others think Judge Adams is corrupt, not pleased with his judgements and want to see the guy gone. While main stream media haven’t caught up, it’s all over the net in forums, blogs and social net works. I can only assume someone is going to have a full inbox this morning.
So far his home address, phone number and other personal info has been posted on forums all over the internet. Not sure posting his home address is a good idea…A lawyer told me once that it wasn’t drug dealers and your run of the mill criminal he feared, it was plaintiffs and defendants in family and divorce courts.
The video is accompanied by a detailed summary:
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.
It’s not clear why she waited so long or who placed the recording device in her room, but Hillary is out to get him and wants the world to know the type of human he is.
You go girl!
THIS VIDEO SHOWS HILARY AS A CHILD PLAYING PIANO AT HER FIRST RECITAL
Edit: I’ve been able to read some of the posts on Reddit where Hillary originally posted a link and it appears that the
good judge has made several controversial rulings. It appears he and other lawyers took it on to an internet forum, it may not be him, but the people concerned knew an awful lot.
“Once he went off on me because I said he was a Dorian Gray to my friends. Any tiny little slander he would blow out of proportion. Welp…” she posted on Twitter
“I was holding onto the video until the right time,” says Hillary, “and after a barrage of harassment from my father over the phone, I snapped and finally uploaded it. Now I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner.”
However she appears to be taken back by the support she has received world wide; “I am still shocked that so many people are this enraged. But please, don’t threaten my father. I only want him to finally repent.”
After posting the video to youtube, Hillary Adams posted a link on reddit last night. That’s when it kicked off.
