Video purports to show Texas judge using a belt to whip his 16-year-old daughter for downloading music and games off the internetA Texas judge faces a police investigation and judicial probe after a video apparently showing him beating his then-16-year-old disabled daughter was posted on the Internet.A person identifying herself as Hillary Adams said in posting the video to the sharing site Reddit she had held on to it "until the right time" but decided to post it after receiving a "barrage of harassment" over the phone from her father.
The video, apparently shot on a webcam, was also posted to YouTube. In that posting, the person identifying herself as Hillary Adams said the beating occurred in 2004, when her father was punishing her for using the Internet "to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time."But William Adams told Texas television station KRIS, "It happened years ago ... I apologized."
He said the conduct is "not as bad as it looks on tape," KRIS said.A person identifying herself as Hillary Adams, on a Twitter account using the same username as the posting on Reddit, tweeted to CNN, "I'm not sure how much I should say, except that above all we need to help my father instead of condemning him."
In another tweet, the person said, "I'm feeling some regret for publishing the video because to ruin my own father is heavy indeed. But I really want him to seek help."
The daughter "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," according to the posting. "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."

I'm not against spanking on general principle. But there's something off-putting about that guy. I've been spanked out of love, and that wasn't it. What these parents were doing just seemed malicious.
Besides, at 16 a child's personality is already defined and spanking isn't going to do any good. Spanking is a corrective action for behavior at a young age. When they're teens, you have to resort to more adult ways of punishment- such as chores or taking away property or privileges."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen.

She also apparently has ataxic cerebal palsy, and wasn't really able to leave the house much, according to a CNN article. What they did to her is really messed up, IMHO.

That doesn't look like punishment. It looks like a dad almost out of control and taking out frustration and anger on his daughter.
I very much believe in corporal punishment, but don't do it if you can't control your temper.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

A Texas family law judge seen beating his older daughter in a video she posted on YouTube has been placed under a temporary restraining order that his former wife’s lawyer says effectively prevents him from visiting his younger daughter.Under a court order issued Thursday, the judge, William Adams, is forbidden from visiting his 10-year-old daughter without getting permission from her mother. The order also says Judge Adams cannot drink alcohol within 24 hours of seeing his daughter or disparage his former wife.
Brett Pritchard, the lawyer for Hallie Adams, the judge’s former wife, said in a prepared statement that the ruling “temporarily terminates the visitation between Judge Adams and his younger child.”
