A judge is suspended by Texas court for beating his own daughter in a video footage that was posted in You Tube.
Violence is always bad. And it is hated by all. To punish the children is ok when you do it by not harming or heating the child which can have a bad effect in future. But beating children is a kind of illegal work. It is hated by all. In recent years child punishment is totally band in the developed countries. Now to punish a child by beating is counted as a crime and there are laws to protect such acts. But what happens when a judge himself commits such a crime of child beating.
William Adams was a Texas family law judge. He was seen beating his daughter in a video that was posted in the You Tube. It was very much shocking that being a judge how can he make such crime.
The video was posted by his-own daughter in this year some days ago. She captured the video secretly. The video footage was of 2004. In the video it was clear that William Adams was beating his daughter by a belt of his. He was beating his girl for downloading illegally from internet. Often he used to beat his daughter Hillary in this way. The video was of 7 minutes and in the video he was clearly seen to hit Hillary with his belt for at least 10 times and all them were powerful strikes. He used to shout on her and told her to lie down on her bed with using slangs so that he could spank on her legs and back. The video in You Tube is viewed more than six million times in internet.
William Adams has not take part on any bench since the video was out in the internet on October-27. And now Texas Supreme Court has suspended William Adams from his job. A commission is inquiring the case.
There are some other restrictions too on his visit to his family also. He cannot visit his 10 year old daughter without her mother’s permission who is his ex wife. He cannot also drink alcohol or disparage the women within 24 hours of meeting his child.
Police said that the judge will not face criminal charges because the incident happened many times ago. But the inquiry is going on for the crime and hopefully the result will be in our hands soon.
Adams also agreed with a lawyer that all children are daydreamers and their testimony should be ignored.
