Regarding the perceived sexual link in the violence:
"Truesdell (et al 1986) found that 73% of 30 women attending a mother’s group of an incest treatment programme at a child welfare department had experienced some form of physical and psychological abuse from their partner and that 23% had suffered ‘life threatening’ violence. Other US studies such as Browning and Boatman (1977) and Deitz and Craft (1980) also found that domestic violence is high in families where fathers or stepfathers are sexually abusing children.
A British study of 20 women whose children had been sexually abused by their partner found
domestic violence existed in all cases, only three of which did not involve physical violence
(Forman, n.d. as cited in Morley and Mullender, 1994)"

Just re-iterating the sentiment, I hope he gets jail time and that a very large, fat and hairy man returns the favour.

That's a pretty well earned D-Bag of the Month award. Pity we can't pin it on his chest ourselves, with long rusty bent nails.
Righteous vigilante fantasies aside; that man has no business wearing a robe and sitting behind the bench to judge matters of justice, to say nothing of family law (domestic abuse). His only relationship to the bench should be in front of it, in chains.
I wonder if this revelation will result in problems in the cases he's presided over?
As terrible as this bastard's treatment of his own child is, I am trying to wrap my head around the idea that this man has had say in whether or not domestic abuse is just that, abuse. This man has had say in custody, in protection and separation.
How many victims stood before William Adams hoping for justice and got nothing?
How many victim stood before William Adams and faced ridicule and shame from this obviously mean spirited son of a bitch?
How many victims stood in front of William Adams and then got sent home with their abusers and were subjected to violence like this for years?

So these parents filmed this for posterity? Why would anyone film this to brag about to other parents?

The kid spent a lot of time on her computer, as the video clearly shows. She simply must of had her webcam on. Frequently being victim of this kind of behavior would give me the idea to catch it on video as well.
