Yesterday, this brutal video made the rounds. In it, a then-16-year-old girl was brutally attacked by her father for downloading music illegally on the internet back in 2004. (Warning: it’s a tough watch.) The girl, Hillary Adams, now 23, released the video as her parents were in the midst of a custody battle. She secretly taped the incident and only told him about the video recently. ”I told him I had the video,” she said. “He didn’t seem to think anything of it, and basically dared me to post it.” On its own, it seems like a harsh overreaction, but it’s made all the worse when you consider that the father in the video is a county judge who specializes in child abuse cases. You’d imagine that this would be the kind of case he’d have to deal with at his job. Based on comments the Texas judge has made, he may not be very remorseful over the incident. Here are some reactions:

  • father Aransas County, Texas Court-at-Law Judge William Adams defended the 2004 incident like so: ”In my mind, I haven’t done anything wrong other than discipline my child after she was caught stealing. And I did lose my temper, but I’ve since apologized.”
  • daughter Here’s how his daughter, Hillary, reacted to that statement: “It’s a shining perfect example of his personality and he believes he can do no wrong. … He will cover up rather than admit to what he did and try to come clean, which is what I really want him to do.” source

Three Tuscaloosa Police officers, whose names I will post later,  decided to use excessive force against a 100 lb. 21 year old female since I ran five feet from them because I felt threatened, basically picked me up, threw me on the ground, my face hit the concrete, the three cops got  on top of me- one was holding my head to the pavement with his mag light, who had previously hit me in the leg with it three times, all the time this cop, this PIG, had me on the ground, he was calling me a ‘Fucking whore’ which he said at least three times. I was not able to resist at this point, even if I had wanted to. I was yelling to Lance to pay attention to what was happening to me and they didnt like that very much so then he sprayed a constant spray of pepper spray all over my entire face, including my mouth..I could still talk to Lance so then he sprayed a long spray a second time.. picked me up off the ground and put cuffs on me as tight as they would go, threw me in the car and buckled the seat belt so i couldn’t move and then shut all the doors and left me there, alone, in excruciating pain. It took everything for me to be able to breath, I was basically almost suffocating and honestly, that was the only time in my life where I thought I might die. when I got to jail I asked twice for first aid because I have a gash in my head that was still bleeding and open wounds on my face..but they never even got a nurse to look at it, clean it or put something on it. When I went to the Doctor, they told me the gash was bad enough to get stitches, but I should have gotten them within an hour of it happening.  these are the people who “protect and serve” you.

15-year-old boy beaten viciously because he’s gay (Video)

I received this in my inbox today and didn’t hesitate to sign the petition. This bigotry inspired hatred needs to stop now and it’s about time the nations schools stop toleration bulling in general for whatever reason.

The cell phone video is grainy, but what it shows is simple enough: A 15-year-old boy being viciously beaten because he’s gay. 

The incident took place last week at Unioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio. In the video, there’s a skinny 15-year-old boy in a classroom full of students. A much bigger boy says something to him. The smaller boy tries to walk away, but the bigger boy punches him. First once. Then again. Then over and over while the smaller boy curls on the ground, writhing in pain. 

“I covered myself, I shielded my body, and he just kept hitting me,” the victim said later. “Nobody did anything [to help me].”

Despite the brutal beating being caught on video, the bully received only three days’ suspension, which means he could be back to school as soon as this week.The Union-Scioto school district has an anti-bullying policy that protects for gender, race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, and disability — but not sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Bret Thompson is from Ohio, too, and he was appalled when he read about the school district’s lax handling of such a serious incident. Bret started a petition on Change.org demanding that the Union-Scioto school district enact an anti-bullying policy that will protect LGBT students to prevent future beatings like this one. Click here to watch the cell phone video of the incident and sign Bret’s petition right now.

The victim’s mom, Rebecca Collins, says this wasn’t the first time her son was bullied for being gay. In fact, just two days before the beating, Rebecca’s son posted a picture of himself on Facebook, and the boy who later beat him up commented that the picture was “the definition of a fag.”

Perhaps most upsetting of all, the beating took place in a classroom during the few minutes between classes, when teachers are required to roam the halls to make sure kids aren’t getting into trouble.Clearly, the current anti-bullying policy in the Union-Scioto School District isn’t working.

Union-Scioto district officials want this incident handled quickly and quietly, but they need to know that Ohioans take the issue of anti-LGBT attacks extremely seriously. As Bret Thompson says, “If the school administrators won’t send a message to their student body that this is unacceptable, we’ll just have to send a message to them.”

Please sign Bret’s petition demanding that the Union-Scioto school district enact a policy to protect LGBT students from bullying:

Thanks for being a change-maker,

P.S. Anti-gay bullying is pervasive throughout North America. Here are some other actions you can take to help fight this important issue:

  1. After a gay teen took his life in Ottawa, Claudia Van den Heuvel started this petition to improve conditions at Ottawa-Carleton District Schools.
  2. Sean Chapin — who inspired the San Francisco Giants to make their “It Gets Better” video — is asking the 49ers to become the first team in the NFL to make a video to stand up to anti-gay bullying
  3. Elle’ Kelly was tired of being bullied at her middle school in Georgia, so she started a petition on Change.org asking her school to start a Gay Straight Alliance.
  4. Gloria Nieto wants her favorite hockey team, the San Jose Sharks, to be the first NHL team to send a strong message that bullying is wrong, and that “It Gets Better.”

Follow Up of the Day: The Texas judge at the center of a controversial video allegeding to show a severe beating he administered to his daughter in 2004 as a punishment for using the Internet has confirmed to KRIS-TV that he is in fact the person conducting the alleged child abuse.

“It happened years ago; I apologized,” he told 6 News. “It’s not as bad as it looks on tape.” Aransas County officials report that an investigation was launched after people began “flooding phone lines to compalin.”

Judge Adams says he has contacted the Judicial Review in Austin and expects to clear his name through the investigation.

On Facebook, Hallie Adams, the judge’s ex-wife, acknowledge her former spouse’s “current and continuing abuse of my children and me.” She did not apologize for her part in the beating.

[kris.]

An elected arbiter of justice sadistically beating his disabled daughter for a completely harmless infraction? And getting away with it for years and years? And how this cowardly, brainless news coverage refers to the horrifying, atrocious video clip as “controversial.”

That “mother” should be sentenced jail time as well.

Again:

Here is Judge Adams work contact info just in case you would like to drop him a line so you can let him know how much of a man he is for beating his disabled teenage daughter.

Family law judge from Texas beats and abuses his own daughter for using the internet. She uploaded the video. 

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.
