You may remember that last year a video surfaced on Youtube of a man identified as Texas judge William Adams brutally beating his disabled teenage daughter with a belt in 2004.  The sickening cruelty and sadism of his behavior in the video is impossible to forget, so don't watch it unless you can handle it: Youtube video.  The video was uploaded by the daughter, who had kept it in her possession since then, and finally released it as an adult in 2011.  Anyway, this subhuman turd that Texas saw fit to place in a position of legal authority over other people was suspended from the bench pending an investigation that has now concluded.  Result?  He will be reprimanded and his pay reduced by 1.6%, then fully resume his powers as a judge.  Yup.  Fucking Texas.

As far as I'm concerned, a man by definition protects those weaker than him - even total strangers when called upon - and the obligation is absolute when it comes to women and children in your own family.  So when I see a video like that of some bellowing stack of high-piled shit beating on a woman or a child, I don't see a man - I see a wretched animal that crawled out of a septic tank whose only purpose in life is to get the shit kicked out of him by an angry torch-wielding mob.  But, being the civilized guy that I am, I obviously understand that we have a system of laws and courts for a reason: Because vermin like that thrive in a climate of lawlessness.

But apparently courts in TX aren't there to hold sadistic tyrants like that accountable: They're there to try mentally handicapped 13-year-olds as adults, lock up the niggras by the bushel, and deliberately execute innocent people just for the sheer thrill of showing utter contempt for Western civilization and human life.  And given that the state puts people like William Adams on the bench, it's no wonder that's what comes out of the process.  So maybe I shouldn't be surprised that the Texas Supreme Court (who are all proud Republicans, BTW) watched that video, heard the man's daughter and former wife (gee, I wonder why she left) portray him as an abusive sociopath, and from there decided that the thing to do was to write him a sternly-worded letter, dock his pay slightly, and then put him right back in charge of making moral value decisions that affect other people's lives.  Oh...you...fucks.

You degenerate fucking photographic negatives of Americans, how dare you walk the streets with other human beings?  How dare you sit in judgment over other people when this is what you do?  How dare you think yourselves competent or worthy to even sit in judgment over a plate of broccoli, you malignant fucking wastes.  You molted snakeskins in robes.  Could you even leave Texas soil without melting like Nazis in an Indiana Jones movie?  You should be judging beetle wrestling contests in Bangladesh, not polluting the air of decent people with your stench.  And as for William Adams, try not to kick any puppies on your lunch break, you twisted dickcheese smear.  Fucking Texas.  (Spit)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I'm speechless, I feel nauseous, and my head is spinning.

    I'd somehow missed the video before -- I vaguely recall hearing about it, but hadn't actually watched it.

    Judge William Adams is a sick, sick man.

    God, I hope Hillary Adams has a happy and successful life. She showed such foresight and courage in risking to videotape the abuse, and even more courage in going public with it.

    Not ever.
     I have property, etc. in Rockport/Aransas and it's a small town/county , and you eventually meet almost everyone (pop. 7K/23K, and I think Texas' smallest county areawise, and mostly water; don't look at the pic too close, you might see me giving you the bird from the harbor, heheh).

    But you can see why vile carbon-based lifeforms like him get into positions of authority by looking at some (very) recent election returns:
    Aransas County 2012 General Election
    Mitt Romney/ Paul Ryan REP (EV)4,881 74.69% (Totals)6,829 70.79%
     Barack Obama/ Joe Biden - Incumbent DEM 1,601 24.49% 2,703 28.02%
     Gary Johnson/ Jim Gray LIB 39 0.59% 87 0.90%
     Jill Stein/ Cheri Honkala GRN 14 0.21% 27 0.27%

    around a mere $4000 from his salary next year, assuming that he had been suspended with pay until now  (cut + foregone raise from ~$146K/yr).

    Thinking about it, that despicable varmit makes a pretty fucking good salary for wearing a black robe in a little backwater Texas county. Must be an awesome caseload, eh?
    I hope he's still forking over a hefty tithe to his place of worship.   /snark

      Send emails to everyone in the county about him with a picture of him and declaring him a child abuser and talking about the TX Supreme Court's slap on the wrist.

      If you live in the area, or close enough to get there, put up physical notices, distribute pamphlets / flyers.

      Since it disgraces the TX Supreme Court, you could do this pretty much anywhere in Texas also.

      Bring the case to the attention of child protection activist organizations.

      Call him and tell him to resign.  Send him letters/emails doing so.  Send letters/emails to the TX Supreme Court condemning their corrupt dereliction and implicit endorsement of his actions.

      I don't know if this is possible, but if there are public notices about cases that will soon be heard before him, you might be able to contact the people involved - or at least the attorneys - and inform them about the judge.

      You might also inform any organizations he is affiliated with about him, as well as businesses in the area he might frequent.

      These are just ideas, so feel free to take, leave, or expand on them.
