Hillary posting the beating video to the world, shows the deniers how judges and other people in positions of power and respect, are capable of beating and brutalizing their children behind closed doors. Hillary opened many people’s eyes by posting the video. I don’t agree with how she got back at him, but something good sure came of it.
Here’s another person who saw a problem with how Hillary went about exposing her father:
By Dr. Susan Cornbluth, Examiner November 7, 2011 –
CNN — “New York reported 2 days ago that Texas Judge William Adams who was caught on camera beating his daughter will not face criminal charges.
Hillary Adams, 16 at the time, recorded the video of her father hitting her with a belt, but waited until she was 23-years-old to post it. A district attorney in the state says too much time has passed for any charges to be filed.
Hillary Adam’s told CNN’s Anderson Cooper she uploaded the graphic video as a way to reconcile with Judge William Adams. “I wanted to show my father, ‘Hey, I think you were in some denial about the way you are treating me and my mother.’ And maybe showing him this would make him see something he didn’t before,” Hillary Adams, now 23, told CNN.
In response to Ms. Adam’s post, Mr. Adam’s stated, “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 the station. “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.”
Judge Adam’s if you did not want to get into “it” perhaps you should not have replied to the reporter. It is also interesting to note that Judge Adam’s referred to his daughter as “this child” instead of “my child.”
Abuse is Abuse no matter when it takes place. The video that Hilary Adams uploaded to YouTube is another example of a child suffering terrifying abuse at the hands of his or her own parent’s hands.
In my professional opinion, the Adam’s family needs therapy: perhaps individually and together. What they do not need is to recreate more drama in the media. Dramatic impulsive behavior is often seen among abusive families when needs are not met. Family members often feel threatened when their needs are not answered and they tend to take matters into their own hands to gain such acknowledgment! It is sad that Hillary Adams had to go to such lengths to be heard by her father.
Acknowledgment seems to be the key component to this case of abuse.”
