Even though this has nothing to do with medicine, it still has to do with stupid people. Welll, stupid person. It just pisses me off more than I can even start to describe.
A judge in Texas (yes, a judge) was taped beating his 16 year old daughter with a belt several years ago, and she posted the video to Youtube a few days ago. The fact that she's disabled is almost irrelevant. I'll warn you that the video is disturbing, and that means a lot coming from a guy who regularly sees people stabbed in the heart and shot in the head.
As a parent, I was absolutely horrified watching this. I wanted to reach into the computer screen, grab this guy by the ears, and yell, "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!??!"
I promise I'll get back to more stupid patients next. I just couldn't let this go. There's a special place in Hell for people who abuse children.
