Extremely Disturbing Video: Texas Judge Caught Whipping Daughter With Belt

(By Madeleine Morgenstern, The Blaze) - Police are investigating an extremely disturbing video that has gained national attention, purportedly showing a Texas judge whipping his daughter repeatedly with a belt.

According to the video’s description — which says it was recorded and uploaded to YouTube by the judge’s daughter herself — Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams beat the 16-year-old girl “as punishment for using the Internet to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time.” It said she has ataxic cerebral palsy, which led to a “passion for technology” — something her father strictly forbid.

The description, signed by Hillary Adams, says the video was recorded in 2004 but was just posted Oct. 27. Hillary told local Texas station KZTV 10 she was waiting for the right time to release it. Judge Adams is running for re-election.
