Before you start reading this post, I am warning you right now, the video is disturbing. I am crying and my heart is breaking as I type this. I am not even sure how I feel about posting it at all, but if it helps even one person speak out against violence, it will be worth it.
The following video was taken by the girl getting beat. The girl apparently downloaded a video game and some music illegally off the internet and her father found out, and then beat the hell out of her while her mother stands there watching. You need to know before you watch this, it is horrible, long and gut wrenching.
The girl is not being “punished” she is being beaten, all over her body with a fucking belt.
The father Judge William Adams, has commented and said that it was years ago (2004) and he has apologized, and that the beating wasn’t as bad as it looked. Well I am calling bullshit on that one buddy. You beat the hell out of a 16 year old girl with a BELT, when your wife took it away, you came back with another belt and did it again. I also have issues with the mother, obviously she was abused as well, but she contributed to the whole scene non the less.
How the hell is any of it not as bad as it looks?
The abuse was not acceptable. in. any. way. He definitely needs to suffer some consequence for his actions. The daughter doesn’t want people to hate her Dad, just get him the help he needs. There are obviously anger issues, they had obviously happened before that time, or she never would have video taped it in the first place would she have?
Let’s raise awareness people, abuse is NOT ok in any way…
The only way to stop it, is too speak out, to be aware and to be proactive.
I also just want to say, that after reading through the comments on the video, I am nearly more disturbed than I was watching the video.
It is not ok to hit anyone with a belt or anything else, NO MATTER WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. It’s just not ok. I don’t care if the girl was downloading porn and robbing banks. Beating the hell out her will not solve the issues.
That is just my two cents, I hope that the girl has received help since exposing this video. I also hope that the father has.
I have to go give my kid a hug now.
