We’re just going to keep rolling the unfunny news and totally bum out your Wednesday cause we’re doing a totally awesome job at that today.

This video is from 2004. It was recently uploaded to YouTube by, we’re assuming, the abused daughter in the video. We’re also assuming that she’s in a safe place now, far far away from her f*cked up father. You’re going to hear about this story and the developments a lot this week.

The f*cked up part is this that type of mental and physical abuse is still far more common than we think, and it happens more frequently than we know. I’m just glad that this girl was smart enough to roll the webcam through this sick hypocrisy and use the power of the internet that she has a passion for to exploit this assh*le for the piece of sh*t he is.

It’s raw, graphic, and very disturbing. You may end up punching your screen. So, yah.

Viewer discretion is advised.

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.

If any “win” were to come of this video release – because in this story, everyone loses – I really hope that this will give courage to others to capture mental and/or physical violence with technology and use it in a safe and productive manner.
