    Re: Texas judge beats daughter with belt

    I saw this video last night when it blew up on reddit. Just terrible. And the fact that it was taped means it probably happened more than once (giving her a reason to try to create a record of it).

    Even worse that he's judged child abuse cases. How did he treat the cases of abuse that came before him?

    Re: Texas judge beats daughter with belt

    At one point during the more than 7-minute-long video, the man leaves the room and returns with a second belt to continue the wicked assault.
    "It's not as bad as it looks on tape," he added.

    Re: Texas judge beats daughter with belt

    I got smacked with a belt a few times growing up by my mom, but it wasn't like this whipping of the hebrews I just watched. What a ****.

    I can relate to that. I got spanked as a kid, but never had a belt taken to me. One time, I smarted off to my mom how when she spanked me, it didn't hurt. She whacked me twice on the behind with a rubber spatula, and after that it was smooth sailing.

    This guy, on the other hand, took a belt to his daughter for a LONG time. That's a bit over the line in my book.

    The guy deserves to be put in stocks in the town square and publicly flogged.

    ...or am I being obtuse?...

    More than a bit IMO. This is torture not punishment. I just hope that girl doesn't live at home anymore.

    Unbelievably disgusting. I don't care what she did, this isn't justifiable. These parents need to be placed side by side and shot in the head.

    yup, that was def torture... mental, physical abuse, no doubt about it.. he stops, comes back, seems calm then flips back out.. pure anger on his part, not good. I was hit several times with a thick rubber shower brush - it didnt work to solve behavior issues long term, and was like once or twice at a time, not 20! This guy tees off over a dozen time on his DAUGHTER for using the internet... insane.

    Re: Texas judge beats daughter with belt

    The interview with the daughter this morning was pretty enlightening. I had wondered how it had been captured on video; if a web cam just happened to be set up. She said that she set up the camera on her dresser about a half hour earlier because she could sense that the situation was escalating to the point that it was going to happen again as it had in the past. The guy has anger issues.

    He's a family court judge, and sat over abuse cases. Knowing his obvious views now, I wonder how many abusive parents he "let walk", and how many of those parents went on to not only continue the abuse but also escalate it in their homes. He's a POS.

    This is the EXACT reason that people no longer trust the justice system in this country. A judge handling child abuse cases that goes home and then abuses his own child? This could potentially cause reviews of cases he has presided over as a judge as well. Was he sympathetic to child abusers or was he an over the top **** to them in some pathetic way to make amends for his own actions? One thing is for sure... this guy can kiss his career goodbye and rightfully so.

    Sound's like you're describing a prison rape.
