Re: Judge William Adams beats daughter for using the internetNov 3rd, 2011
I got the strap once as a child, from my dad. Honestly, I think there are parents out there who can do more damage delivering a beating with a hand than someone delivering reasoned corporal punishment, can do with a strap. What the mom did for example, if it was an incident in and of itself, 7 years ago before many places had legislation against a belt, I don't think it would have gotten my dander up too badly. It's the uncontrolled, hysterical, foaming at the mouth screaming that puts the child so in fear of their safety that they can't even comply with an order to turn around, that makes the beating so horrific, whether he'd used a belt or an open hand makes no difference imo.
