Texas court suspends judge taped beating daughter
http://www.cnn.com/2011/11/23/justice/texas-beating-video/index.html

Judge William Adams, who made national headlines after the release of a 2004 video of him beating his then-teenage daughter, has been suspended by the Texas Supreme Court.

The reason for the action was not mentioned in an order of suspension that was made public Tuesday.

Adams, a court-at-law judge in Aransas County, was roundly criticized when his now-adult daughter posted online a video of him beating her with a belt when she was 16.

1. Good news.
Anyone beaten with a belt can tell you that it's more than punishment. No one would believe her if she didn't have the video, though. She wants justice for the judge; I hope she wipes the floor with him in court.

2. He should be arrested for assault & battery and child abuse.

3. Did they suspend him from a tall tree? That's pretty close to what he deserves. n/t

6. He is probably not so much well suited to be a family court judge.
I'm guessing Judge Adams is a tough-on-crime, "family values" Christian Republican hypocrite. So what else is new? He should go to jail. He is clearly a perverted pervert child abuser and wife beater.

7. I watched the video
it is absolutely horrendous. He can't be prosecuted because of statute of limitation, but he should be de-robed. He has no business being a judge, and more importantly one that deals with family court issues. I can imagine there is going to be a lot of people crawling out who he has judged in the past and they have every right to question his decisions made in the past. Shame is not enough for this guy. He must be destroyed financially and career wise. His daughter has Cerebral Palsy and he is a monster in my book.
