We probably did plenty on this yesterday, but I saw a fuller version of the Corpus Christi TV station interview with Judge William Adams of Rockport, Texas, a family court judge whose daughter filmed him beating her with a belt and cursing her throughout. Emphasis supplied:

"She's mad because I've ordered her to bring the car back, in a nutshell, but yeah that's me, I lost my temper," Adams told us. "Her mother was there, she wasn't hurt.. it was a long time ago.. I really don't want to get into this right now because as you can see my life's been made very difficult over this child," Adams continued.

When asked if he felt he was going to face any suspension or discipline from the state over the video Adams responded, "In my mind I have not done anything wrong other than discipline my child when she was caught stealing. I did lose my temper, I've apologized.. it looks worse than it is."

The classic abuser. It was the abuse victim's fault. An uncontrolled beating is discipline. He should not be a judge.
