Girl Whipped By Judge Father In Video Wants a Do Over
As many are now aware Hilary Adams (above) was repeatedly whipped by her father who happens to be a judge on a video that was recorded seven years ago. Okay, the video of the beating is disturbing because of the length that it goes on (clocking in at over seven minutes), but to children raised in a Caribbean household over twenty years ago, this was an average, good ol' fashioned whipping you were used to receiving if you stepped out of line. Beatings like that made you the well-mannered member of society that you are today.
Nowadays, ofcourse, it is considered child abuse. There is two sides to every story and Judge William Adams has confirmed that he was in the video whipping his daughter because she was caught stealing. Caught STEALING. Let me get caught stealing as a little boy... I don't even want to think about it.
My thing is this, Hilary only released this video, that she secretly taped, SEVEN YEARS after it happened because of a recent argument she had with her father over the phone. Daddy got you upset so you chose to show one of hundreds of whippings you probably received because you're pissed off?
And then you say that you're sorry you did it after the fact? After the video has gone viral and the Judge has been stripped of his livelihood and his life has been threatened? Come on, Hilary. Your father is an officer of the court. If he needs help for abusive behavior, you call the police. You don't post a video into cyberspace where there are maniacs and psychos that are looking for a reason to fight or harm someone for no other reason that he or she is miserable and wants to take it out on another person.
Judge Adams' home address and phone number is public record. The local Dominos pizza has received dozens of prank orders to be sent to the judge's home. Local authorities are being beseiged by angry phone calls about this incident that happened SEVEN YEARS AGO! But you wanna take it back. You're sorry you posted it.
Going on Twitter and asking people to stop threatening your father and give him the help he needs? What is that supposed to do? They will give him help alright, help him to a beatdown worse than what you received since you got them so fired up.
If this gets Judge Adams the help he needs, it also got him a boatload of unwanted attention from people that have no business being involved in the matter.
