WARNING: This could be a trigger for anyone who has been abused.
Yesterday a video hit the internet, disturbing to say the least.
In 2004 this 16 year old girl was beaten by her parents for using the internet for games her parents did not approve. Her father County Court-at Law-Judge William Adams who is still on the bench as I type this is confirmed to be the man in the video swearing and beating his daughter for about 7 minutes with his belt. A statement from him said that it was not as bad as it looked and that he was sorry.
I am sorry people like him in the world do not know better and so children have to needlessly suffer.
I have 4 children, my oldest is 12 and we do not spank, it is not an option.
I would not hit you unless you where trying to hurt me or my own and it would never be my first choice.
Hitting an adult is called assult so why is anything like this ok?
There are excuses, I know them all. Studies show that spanking is harmful.
I hope this Judge pays for the horror he put that child through, and any others he harmed.
