Over the past two days there has been a video sweeping the world. It shows a judge in Texas beating his disabled daughter with a belt. The video was secretly captured by the daughter 7 years ago when she was 16, but just decided to release this week because she wants her father to get help. In the video, you can see the daughter getting beat with a belt about 20 times. Even her mother joins in and at one point tells her to bend over and take it like she should. Remember this is a 16 year old who has cerebral palsy. Since the time of the video, the mom has left the dad, and says she too was abused but that is no excuse for participating in the beating of your daughter. The daughter was being beaten because she was downloading music on her computer.

As for the dad, he is a judge. A family law judge to be exact. He is famous for his rulings in Texas where he has decided that whatever kids say in court about their parents is never true because all they do is fantasize and make up stuff. Yep, even when there are third party witnesses, the judge never believes anything a child says.
The judge for his part says he already apologized and won't do so again. He said it looked worse than it was and that he did not want to discuss it further and that his life has been made very difficult by his daughter then and now. Way to go a-hole. Blame the daughter. The sad part is she says she now kind of regrets posting the video but really wanted him to get help.
