    Judge that beat disabled daughter to be reinstated

    So most of us heard or read about the Texas Judge that whipped his disabled daughter with a belt, because she downloaded some music online. Well, he is to be reinstated to the bench, where he will be presiding in the Family Courts.

    Do you think he should return?
    Do you think his form of discipline was okay?

    Him getting his job back just shows how fucked up the world really is..

    I say he should not get his job back and should serve some jail time for what he did.

    Edit: Ok i got to ask who the hell would vote "Yes, his form of discipline was okay" i know everyone has opinions and are entitled to them but.......

    No he shouldn't be reinstated. No it's not okay to physically hurt your children. This is really messed up.

    I saw a video of her, some 10 years after that event, and she seemed perfectly fine to me.

    But it's possible that she had a condition when she had that age, and probably still has, but it's just not visible, I'm not sure though what kind of condition she has, but seriously, does it really matter? He beat his daughter, hard, he shouldn't get his job back.

    The video wasn't discovered until after the statute of limitations had expired or he would have served jail time.

    That judge should be in jail for child abuse, not be free, and get his job back. Disgusting.

  16. #16
    Look, this judge is pretty despicable human being, but can we stop with the "disabled" shit?

    I mean really.

    parenting is simple, don't discipline your kids if you're mad. he took his anger out on her and that's abuse.

    didn't the girl have CP? been a while but the form she had means she'll never even walk normally. try that shit for a week and you'll feel disabled too. girl isn't a vegetable but there is a lot of every day shit that you do that she can't and never will be able to.

    chop off both thumbs and tell me how disabled you feel even though you can still pass for a normal person. CP is about the same most times.

    the girl has Cerebral Palsy that makes her disabled and makes this 1000% worse then if he beated a kid who wasn't.

    How does it make it 1000% times worse?

    I know she has Cerebral Palsy, but she doesn't seem to really be affected by it, on account of the videos I have seen of her.

    No it doesn't everyone should have the same rights, regardless if they are disabled or not. The girl wouldn't have been able to do anything if she was disabled or not, so being disabled has absolutely nothing to do with this case, however, I do believe he was in the wrong and should get jail time and NOT be given his job back.
