He is not fit to preside over child protective cases. As seen in a video from 2004, he himself displays actions of a child abuser. The only reason he has not been charged, although this video is enough to bring charges against him, is due to the five year statues limitations.

As stated in USA Today: 
"Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams likely would have been charged with causing injury to a child or other assault-related offenses for the 2004 beating of his then-16-year-old daughter, but the five-year statutes of limitations expired, Rockport Police Chief Tim Jayroe said.

"We believe that there was a criminal offense involved and that there was substantial evidence to indicate that and under normal circumstances … a charge could have been made," Jayroe said.

To allow Judge William Adams to return to the bench would be an extremely unjust act, legally, morally and ethically. His job is to protect children, yet he abuses his own child. Judge William Adams needs to be behind bars for abuse, not sitting behind the bench representing the legal system and determining who is and is not an abusive parent!....PLZ STAND UP 4 ABUSHED CHILDREN.

RIP Macho B

Macho B (Arizona Department of Fish & Game)Jaguars once ranged as far north as the Grand Canyon -- but only a few have been documented in the U.S. since 1971.

One in particular -- a 16-year-old dubbed Macho B -- was the most photographed jaguar in the U.S.

Late last month, Macho B was inadvertently caught during a research project, and Arizona Department of Game and Fish officials took the opportunity to fit him with a GPS collar. Researchers were excited at the prospect of studying the behavior of jaguars in the U.S. based on the data that Macho B would send back.

But that excitement turned to sadness. Days later, Macho B had to be euthanized when it was determined that he was suffering from terminal kidney failure.

Our fight for U.S. jaguars lives on. Later this month, Defenders will be in court to force federal officials to develop a recovery plan for U.S. jaguars -- a move the Bush Administration refused to take on.

Read more about Macho B on our website.

Dear Edge

HERBAL ESSENCES' FALSE ALIBI EXPOSED!

Firstly, thank you for showing your opposition to Herbal Essences' cruel animal testing. Since the New Year we've been doing some research and planning to help the boycott campaign continue to grow throughout 2009. The success of the campaign so far bodes well.

One of the most revealing aspects of Herbal Essences' behaviour is their lack of openness and honesty about their animal testing. They know that most people are disgusted by gratuitous cruelty to animals. But instead of changing their ways, Herbal Essences try to mislead consumers. We've now uncovered a glaring example of their deceit.

We launched the campaign last July when we revealed that Herbal Essences have poisoned and killed over a thousand mothers and their baby animals to re-test a chemical already in use by humans for decades (butylparaben). With a damaged reputation and collapsing sales, Herbal Essences tried to play the blame game and claimed that they did the test at the request of European regulators.

However, Uncaged can now reveal that this is just more deceptive spin from Herbal Essencesí increasingly desperate PR department. We lodged a freedom of information request with the European Commission (EC) for any evidence of a request to Herbal Essences or any other cosmetics company for more test data on butylparaben. The earliest document disclosed was from 2005. But the animal test was written up and published in 2004!

We also asked P&G, Herbal Essencesí parent company, for any documents to substantiate their excuses. They refused. Instead, their PR spokeswoman repeated the claim that the test was conducted at the request of the ECís ĎScientific Committee on Consumer Productsí. But this Committee didnít even come into existence until autumn 2004, several months after the animal test took place.

This incident is just typical of how, in reality, Herbal Essences treat both animals and the public with utter contempt. It seems both arrogant and short-sighted for Herbal Essences to feed the public bare-faced lies about such an important issue as animal testing. Itís about time Herbal Essences showed some respect and stopped insulting peopleís intelligence. Though you have to wonder whether a company so deeply committed to gratuitous cruelty is capable of behaving responsibly and honestly.

With best wishes

Aerial wolf killing is a brutal practice..."I am outraged by Sarah Palin's promotion of this cruel, unscientific and senseless practice which has no place in modern America,"

-- Ashley Judd, activist and Broadway, Hollywood and indie film star

Dear E.J.,

Did you see it this morning? Our new video featuring actress and activist Ashley Judd was featured on The Today Show and The View. 

Since its launch earlier this week, Eye on Palin -- our new campaign made possible by caring supporters like you -- has also been featured on hundreds of blogs, covered by MSNBC, CNN, Reuters and other news outlets.

The nation is talking about Sarah Palin's terrible wolf-killing program -- and now Sarah Palin needs to hear from you.

Please watch our new video featuring Ashley Judd, and then email Governor Palin and urge her to stop her unnecessary, unscientific aerial wolf killing program.

Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund's Eye on Palin campaign exposes Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s anti-conservation agenda as she seeks the national stage.

Our new website, eyeonpalin.org, features Ashley Judd's powerful video on Governor Palin’s cruel aerial wolf killing program that has already been viewed more than 135,000 times on YouTube.

Last fall, Ms. Judd helped us expose Governor Palin’s efforts to eliminate vital federal protections for America’s struggling polar bears. Now, as Governor Palin expands the barbaric aerial slaughter of wolves, Ms. Judd is speaking out once again.

"I am outraged by Sarah Palin's promotion of this cruel, unscientific and senseless practice which has no place in modern America," she said to me. “I am proud to be a part of Defenders Action Fund’s efforts to stop it.”

Watch Ashley Judd’s new video and please take action today. Governor Palin needs to know that caring people like you from across the nation find her cruel aerial wolf slaughter appalling.

Governor Palin is doing all she can to grab the national stage. With your help, we can put the national spotlight on her senseless killing of animals and educate more Americans about the real Sarah Palin.

Rodger Schlickeisen, President
Sincerely,
Rodger Schlickeisen, President Signature

P.S. Take action now -- then help us reach our goal of generating 100,000 messages to Governor Palin by February 28th -- spread the word about Governor Palin’s aerial wolf killing program by forwarding this message to others who care about wildlife.

McDonald's: We're not lovin' it!

Another WSPA member society, the Canadian Coalition for Farm Animals recently launched a campaign to urge McDonalds Canada to buy more eggs from suppliers who do not cage their hens. Right now, eggs used in McDonald's Canada food come from hens kept in battery cages - small wire cages where four or more birds are confined in a space the size of a microwave oven for their entire lives.

 
Please take a moment to download a PDF postcard you can print out and send to McDonald's Canada to express your disapproval of their use of eggs from hens in battery cages.
Download the postcard from this website
