We all know that domestic violence is a serious problem in this country, but it’s videos like this that shine a spotlight on it in a way we’ve never seen before.
This video doesn’t teach us anything new about how sick and twisted some people are, but what it does reveal is that domestic violence isn’t exclusive to any certain class of people. It can and does happen anywhere.
The man who is allegedly hitting his daughter in the video is Texas Judge William Adams, a man who has the authority and liberty to allow people like himself to get away with similar acts via his position in a court of law.
It’s amazing to think how many times this girl must have been beaten to place a camera, almost in perfect position, and record the act as if she knew it was going to happen. Perhaps what is even more shocking than the video content is the fact that the video, and the excerpt that accompanies it, was allegedly uploaded by the Judge’s daughter, the girl who was beat in the video:
2004: Aransas County Court-At-Law Judge William Adams took a belt to his own teenage daughter as punishment for using the internet to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time. She has had ataxic cerebral palsy from birth that led her to a passion for technology, which was strictly forbidden by her father’s backwards views. The judge’s wife was emotionally abused herself and was severely manipulated into assisting the beating and should not be blamed for any content in this video…Judge William Adams is not fit to be anywhere near the law system if he can’t even exercise fit judgement as a parent himself. Do not allow this man to ever be re-elected again. His “judgement” is a giant farce. Signed, Hillary Adams, his daughter.
There were some discrepancies as to whether the man was actually Judge William Adams, but according to a friend of Hillary, J. Andre Bardin told Gawker:
“That’s his voice, that’s his mannerisms, and that is his house.”
So right now there is a graphic video depicting a heinous act, a photo of a judge circulating around the web that is calling people to tar and feather the man, and an excerpt from the uploader revealing the backstory of how she was beaten.
Then there’s the tiny of matter of dealing with that pesky reference to video games in the video…
There have been countless cases where video games have been blamed for causing violence, but how does that apply in a situation where someone who doesn’t play games becomes violent against someone who does? Can anybody seriously say video games are a main factor in causing violence when someone who is so vehemently OPPOSED TO PLAYING VIDEO GAMES commits such a violent act like the above?
We certainly haven’t heard the last of this story, mainly what kind of investigation will take place and what other cases will come to the forefront that could mirror Judge Adams alleged parenting tactics with his judicial decisions.
But here are a few comments from our Facebook Page to show where the conversation is headed for now:
“This just made me sick. I wish I could have 5 minutes with this “father”.”
“Who wants to bet the right wing crazies will say video games are the blame for the judge’s violence….”
“If that worthless prick is going to inflict that amount of torment on a girl with cerebral palsy then I think he deserves a fair share of torment himself. Let him live with the fear of getting his ass whooped on a daily basis. See if he can “bend over” and take it like a man.”
sure, but now I'm curious what those ppl used.So you think there is a program written specifically for mugen that boxes stuff up?
The method they used seem to fit for mugen rather than any software.
Refer to my previous post.
SEATTLE — Instead of the bad guys, it was Seattle's most prolific self-styled superhero that ended up in handcuffs.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44848642/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/?GT1=43001
Police officers arrested the 23-year-old man who calls himself Phoenix Jones early Sunday after he was accused of assaulting several people with pepper spray. He was booked in county jail on four counts of assault, with arraignment set for Thursday, police said Monday.
Jones, who wears a black mask with yellow stripes and a bulging muscle bodysuit, said he was only trying to stop a street brawl.
"Just because he's dressed up in costume, it doesn't mean he's in special consideration or above the law. You can't go around pepper spraying people because you think they are fighting," said Seattle police spokesman Det. Mark Jamieson.
In capital letters, Jones wrote on his Facebook page that said he wouldn't "ever assault or hurt another person if they were not causing harm to another human being."
He also released a video shot during the alleged assault on his Facebook page which he said shows that he used the spray after being attacked. It could also be found at www.vimeo.com/30307440.
Jones was accompanied on patrol by a second superhero, known as Ghost, videographer Ryan McNamee, and Milwaukee-based writer Tea Krulos, who is writing a book about real-life superheroes.
Krulos told msnbc.com that the entourage definitely came across a brawl.
"Six or seven guys were beating up two other guys," Krulos said, adding he heard "loud, aggressive noises." One victim was thrown to the ground and kicked in the ribs. "Two other guys were wrestling with each other but not in a playful way -- and people were screaming."
"Nobody was dancing, it was not ambiguous, there was definitely fighting," he said.
"I was on the phone calling 911 and a guy came up to me and punched me in the face; Ryan was also punched," Krulos said.
Two women who were apparently girlfriends of attackers punched Phoenix Jones after they were caught in the pepper spray cloud, Krulos said. Jones appeared uninjured, he said.
Jones and his group ran to the nearby waterfront Washington ferry terminal to seek shelter as members of the group that was fighting followed, Krulos said. Two from the brawling group hopped in an Escalade, followed Jones, and threw stones at him, Krulos said.
The Escalade pulled under a nearby viaduct as two patrol cars pulled up, he said.
Krulos said he and the videographer were not allowed to give statements to officers.
The often shaky video shows Jones and Ghost running toward a group of people. Jones said there was a fight in the group. Police said there's no indication there was a fight.
The footage goes on to show Jones breaking up the group. Then a woman screams at him, hitting him with her high-heel shoes. Jones appears to be holding his pepper spray canister. Moments later a BMW car appears and speeds away on the street, almost hitting an unidentified man. Jones chases after the car to get the license number. A person with Jones is heard calling police to report a hit-and-run.
Jones and his followers then approach the rest of the group down the block. A woman screams at them to "stay away." Another woman runs up to Jones and hits him, screaming at him, "You sprayed (expletive) pepper spray in my eye!"
Two men in the group approach Jones, who then appears to pepper spray them.
Jones has been the most public face of a group of vigilante crime stoppers to show up in Seattle in the last couple of years. His exploits have garnered much media attention, and he's had a camera crew trailing him in recent months.
Peter Tangen, a volunteer spokesman for Jones, said Monday that police didn't have any interest in the alleged hit-and-run, but rather have an agenda against the masked crime fighter.
"They're on a mission to stop Phoenix Jones from what he's doing, which is legal," Tangen said.
On the police report, the officer wrote that Jones "has had a history of injecting himself in these incidents. Recently there have been increased reports of citizens being pepper sprayed by (Jones) and his group."
The report goes on to say that although Jones "has been advised to observe and report incidents to (police), he continues to try to resolve things on his own."
Jones in an interview on Seattle radio station KISW blamed his arrest on one officer who doesn't like him and denied any wrongdoing.
"I'm never gonna pepper spray a group of people for dancing," he said. He added that he didn't respond to the assault by the woman with the high-heel shoes, claiming she delivered 38 blows to his head.
"I don't touch women," he said.
On his Facebook page, Jones has nearly 4,400 friends, and says that he's married to a woman with the name PurpleReign.
Police weren't buying his Phoenix Jones handle, however. He was booked under Benjamin John Francis Fodor. Authorities are also keeping his suit, at least for the time being.
