The local newspaper needs to investigate and report. The judge deserves the chance to respond.

The video is hard to watch. The judge is going to wake up this morning astounded that thousands, maybe tens of thousands of people around the world believe him to be a monster. Far more people watched that video in the last 12 hours than live in Aransas County.(I'm writing this from the Middle East - welcome to the internets!)

He will no doubt think that he is being pursued by an electronic lynch mob. So Rockport Pilot, it is important that you get the story right - there is a public interest here, and the judge needs to have the opportunity to respond. This video caught fire because this judge decides child custody cases, and because so many people who watched it know right down to their very souls what it feels like to be a kid getting the crap beaten out of them by a parent with a belt. If the video is real, and that really is the judge beating his daughter like that, it needs to be reported and there needs to be a publicly transparent process to decide whether he should remain on the bench, or even practice law.

Images are powerful. The man in the video (allegedly Judge Adams) blames the computers for provoking him into savaging his daughter like that! Ironic, no? I guess the computers and the internet really were a threat after all. In the next 24 hours easily 100,000 people may see that video. If it depicts what it appears to depict, there will be consequences.

YouTube is showing that half a million people watched this video since yesterday afternoon!

The video is fast becoming an archetypal image of child abuse.

Judge, you have yourself a huge PR problem and probably a legal problem as well. Get in front of this quick. If it really is you in this video, a resignation and some very public contrition might be a good idea right now. People aren't going to let this go until the truth comes out.

This is an Outrage! That poor girl! What she must have endured?? And how many other times before and since 2004 was she actually beaten and cursed in that manner by her own father and mother?? I hope something gets done about this! That guy and his wife were Sons of a B*tches to their own daughter!

Georgia's judicial is bad, but not as bad as yours. Your judge is a monster that need to be put in a cage and shown that he is not above the law. His wife deserves the same!

My guess is that he and his wife will "find Jesus" next Sunday and forgive themselves, and expect everybody else to.

The whole world is now watching to see what you people do about them.

This is disgusting. People like him believe they can not be punished for the same they lock others away for. I hate that children do not feel they can get help from monsters like this! I hope he doesn't get away with this.

She is just as bad. I would've never had my child in that situation. He would have had to kill me to get to my child

What about the mom? She was there the whole time! Get'em both! She is just as guilty! I am tired of hearing of boyfriends and husbands abusing and killing children while the mom stands there! Over my dead body only as a mom!

My heart goes out to this girl. I watched this video and wished I would have turned it off, this just breaks my heart. Nobody deserves this kind of treatment. These two So-called parents are barbaric monsters from hell. Both of them are nothing but a poor excuse for society and need to fall off the ends of earth. I was beaten by my father with a mining belt front and back when I was 17 and a half, that was over 40 years ago and this brought back all so bad memories and I feel hatred towards him all over again. I really feel for this girl.I wish some real men(which this judge is no man by any means)would give him the same treatment he used on this child. He is "SICK" and so is the mother. Justice needs to be served.I am so sick of hearing people hurting and killing their own children and these idiotic laws and courts defending criminals. Laws need to be changed and people held accountable for these crimes. He may be a judge but he is not above the laws and never should he or anyone else be treated as though they are. There's no deterrant to crime and it's no wonder people keep committing crimes. Give them what they deserve!

a message to Hillary, I pray you emotionally heal and may God always bless you. You need to know this type of punishment is not normal.I wish I could just hold you and take all your emotional scars away. I am proud you had the courage to come forward with this and you're a smart girl for thinking to make the video.
I empathize

I am now an adult woman, but I grew up in a dysfunctional family as well. I empathize with Hillary because i endured exactly the same situation although my father was not a judge, but he was a prominent member of the community. People only show you what they want to. Many people want to know why now she came forward. When you live under the same roof it's difficult- She was controlled, probably threatened (with me I was told my lil sis would be taken away). Even when CPS interviewed me (bruises were seen at school) I lied. I wish now I would have done things differently and applaud Hillary for coming forward. My past has effected my whole life and I still have never full dealt with these feelings Although it has made me a better parent to my own son now. Prayers to Hillary for healing emotionally!

That was extremely hard to watch, I had an abusive violet Mother who actually beat me with a belt in my sleep, I used to wake up screaming... I guarantee you that girl will relive that for the rest of her life.

Hats off to Hillary for exposing Judge William Adams for all the world to see! How can he say it wasn't as bad as it looked? The truth is the other way around. The Mother seemed like a beaten down wimp. He should already be in jail. This isn't discipline, it's assault. Furthermore, he threatened to beat her face with the belt! I hope Hillary is allowed to live somewhere else and never is forced to be alone in a room with him again. I have no doubt that this girl must have suffered years of abuse.

Notice how none of these posts are from Rockport residents. If Rockport residents reelect this judge, Rockport will have a reputation similar to Jasper.

At least in Jasper the police did something. The police are obviously looking for excuses to not do anything. How hard is it to figure out that limitations has not expired, for example?
