Embarrassing Americans: Dysfunctional families becoming news

 

There are a lot of things you can find on youtube if you’re looking for it, even if you’re not looking for it. People who can and can’t sing, mostly can’t sing, singing their favorite songs, how to tutorials about anything, clips of old shows, parodies of whatever seems to popular at the moment and cats… God youtube is full of cat videos. You also can find people fighting, kids fighting, chicks, drunks and parents beating their kids. So once again during a very slow news week something that really isn’t news becomes news… I hate when anything can become news nowadays. So a daughter of a judge who would beat her with a belt in the clip on youtube has now been making the rounds in the news world. Why? Why are we supposed to give a fuck about this? Because her farther is a judge, a family law judge in the state of Texas?

 

So the daughter is claiming she uploaded the clip because she wanted to show her farther just how out of control he was back then. Did I mention this clip is seven years old? Yes the girl is a woman, a 23 year old woman. Back to the somewhat lame story on her part though, she claims that is why she posted the clip. So in this world of technology for some reason I’m figuring no one has thought to ask her why youtube? I saw her in an interview on Anderson Cooper last night and he never brought that up. How is it until someone story really starts to crumble those people giving the interviews allow the common sense somewhat hard question not to be asked? Example: why didn’t you just send it to his phone, were you worried about your data plan? Why not sent it to his email? Why not use many of these online outlets like yousentit or something like it? She posted it on youtube for all to see not just her farther, which was a calculated move on her part. Check the description of 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

 

I seen the chick last night and she seem so far removed from someone with cerebra palsy. With that said some people do overcome it and even if outgrow it you can call it that and show improvements, but watching her you don’t even get a sense that she had some issues… Not saying she didn’t just saying she shows no signs of ever having it.

 

Her farther claims she posted the clip because he would no longer take care of her and he took the car from her. Does it make sense, yes. Does that downplay the clip, no. He beat he doesn’t even seem like he feels any remorse for what he did and should he be? It was 7 years ago, they’re in Texas and we don’t really know what she did and if the farther really is that out of control. I mean he didn’t just cock back punch her. We can’t go off one seven minute clip. Yes seven minutes of watching someone beat their kids seems long. Being in the hood and having one the worst beatings from my mom when I was dropped off by the police for breaking into a day care center with some friends and eating the food there and swimming in the pool, the officer saw her with a switch (old school south shit) and suggested she put it to good use. I swear I was getting beat for an hour. It was about ten minutes. Does she deserve to say sorry and if I recorded it, posted it and gave a piece of the story on my family and the incident shown, could you really judge my mother? Did she over do it, hell yeah. Did the judge over do it yes.

 

You can find kids getting beat with belts and hands on youtube at anytime so what makes this different? The farther is a judge, slow news week, they’re white, the description of the clip? What really has made this become a story for the news media to be all over it? There is nothing about this story that makes me want to care about either of them, the clip is seven years old. The biggest question is why not post it when she was 18? Why after her farther stops supporting her she post this clip? Yes there are many things at play here and I really hope something happens to make this a non issue because I don’t want to watch family issues play out in the news whether they’re regular people or celebrities. Move on nothing to see here.
