On the dad in Shiner who bead his kid’s molester to death:

You may say it’s “worth it” because the other person got what you thought was “coming,” but you are forever marred by having sunk to the criminal level. You are what you profess to despise.

I can imagine that if this dad beat this man, he thought he was doing it for the right reasons. I hope that the police and prosecutors treat this whole case with that in mind. But there is no way to walk away from this one feeling anything but conflicted, is there?

Ahem. Yes. YES THERE IS. The dad caught the guy sticking his penis in his 4-year-old and put a stop to it. HE DID THE RIGHT THING. Period. Full stop. End of story. Presumably the hand-wringing writer here thinks the man should have called the police and stood idly by. “Hey, nine-eleven, I’m watching my kid get molestered. Get down here, time’s a-wastin’.” I don’t understand how anyone could think that dad was anything other than a hero, let alone a goddamned criminal.

And the Lavaca County DA and sheriff agree, thank God. Furthermore, if you read that story you’ll see the dad was pretty distraught that the guy was gonna die. Makes the folks looking down their nose at him look even more despicable, doesn’t it?

Sure, people can say they don’t think they’d have actually killed their kid’s rapist, but then again they don’t really know because they weren’t there. And yes, this is Texas, I know, but I’d like to think the dad would have been considered a hero even in some anti-freedom shithole like Massachusetts or New Jersey. Really, people, some things are that cut-and-dried in some situations.

    This is the money quote, though: Consider this: when you take justice into your own hands, what happens? You get in trouble. You, the person who, up until that very moment, was in the right.

    She wouldn’t hold off on killing the man because she thinks it’s the wrong thing. She’d hold off because she thinks she’d get in trouble. She’s a fucking coward, and no more, the sort of person who would let her husband get away with molesting their kids for fear of what the neighbors would think.

    My personal opinion is that he should be commended for performing a public service.

    I don’t understand this bushwa. Is she trying to claim that any defense against a criminal is to “take justice into your own hands”?

    Would she not defend herself against a rapist? Not defend her sons or daughters against a molester?

    The evidence shows the father did not intentionally try to kill the molester. That means he used the means and methods he used to defend his daughter were legal. And yet she is conflicted?

    You, the person who, up until that very moment, was in the right.

    I don’t understand this either. Does it mean that people in her world are either a.) Victims, b.) Scumbucket thugs, or c.) bystanders who do nothing?

    Must be a part of the call the cops and let them handle it mentality. I pray to the Lord she never finds herself in the position that Dad did.

    The term “moral cretin” sums her up pretty well.
