I didn't even attempt to watch it. Reading the story was enough for me.


I hope he gets sent to prison without any possibility of ever getting out.

This story is now not only all over the web but all over the news on television and local and national newspapers. Hopefully with all this media exposure he will not get away with this.

No!!


The girl was beaten and abused. No child deserves to be treated like that.

The fact that he was a judge makes the story even more horrible. Who knows how many criminals he set free.

I thought it was absolutely shocking but I wasn't sure what to do about it- I spoke to the store staff but they said it was normal and what can you do. In the UK I would have called the police as I think hitting a child's head is forbidden even if spanking isn't.

To me spanking is assault plain and simple and if we wouldn't be happy if an adult was assaulted without their consent, why doesn't it concern us when it's happening to a child?
Ugh that's awful about the staff not doing anything. I witnessed a children being abused a couple times while working retail but NEVER let it go. The police were called ASAP. Our management team always reinforced the policy that if we ever encountered any forms of abuse to immediately call the police.

I was trying to avoid the video and not watch it but they kept airing it all over the news.
