Call To Action of the Day: Horrific footage of blatant child abuse was posted to Reddit earlier this evening by a person claiming to be the daughter of Arkansas County, Texas Court-at-Law judge William Adams.

Posting under the handle shoeofallcosmos (which has since been hacked), the alleged abuse victim says the beating — which took place in 2004, when she was 16 — was being administered by Judge Adams and his wife as punishment for “using the internet.”

Judge Adams has reportedly made several controversial rulings on the matter of child abuse, including, incidentally, that lack of video evidence is grounds for case dismissal.

"I was holding onto the video until the right time," says Hillary, “and after a barrage of harassment from my father over the phone, I snapped and finally uploaded it. Now I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner.”

The outpouring of support and disgust was immediate, with many reaching out to media outlets and local authorities on Hillary’s behalf. ”I hope my father gets everything he deserves,” she writes, “and loses everything he doesn’t.”

Should the video be removed from YouTube, the original file can be found here.
