I can sy in this father's defense, that I would have reacted the same way!. If that would make me insane, so be it! The scum deserve what he got!!! Based on the AP report of this story, from statements provided by Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon, a father beat a man to death who he said tried to molest his 4-year-old daughter after the girl’s screams were heard from near a barn on their ranch. The sheriff indicated that the father called police late Saturday afternoon and told them he attacked a man he caught trying to sexually assault his daughter, and the sheriff stated that, “In the course of trying to get her away from him, and protect her, he struck the subject several times in the head, and the subject died.” Even with a judicial system in our country that is proving to be increasingly untrustworthy, a majority of American citizens still believes in justice for those who are truly guilty of a crime, as well we should. We have shown in recent local elections in Texas and elsewhere that we will not as a majority continue to support and extend the careers of prosecutors and other officials who refuse to prosecute serious and repeat violent offenders, especially those who commit assaults against women and children.
We should also, though, remember that there is not always substance to every accusation, and many alleged crimes call for extensive investigation and the objective consideration of a jury of our peers. In other cases, however, such as the one discussed here, that just simply might not even be necessary at all.
