Skip to comments.'A parent's worst nightmare' 9-year-old girl sexually assaulted in her bedroom

A convicted sex offender broke into a San Francisco home in the Ingleside district and raped a 9-year-old girl in her bedroom in an hourlong attack that ended when the girl's mother walked into the room, San Francisco police said.
The man, police say, fled on foot and was chased by the girl's father, who at one point struck him with a 2-by-4. The man continued fleeing through several backyards and was captured by police and identified as Roberto Gamero, 36, of San Francisco, police said.
"It's a parent's worst nightmare,'' said San Francisco police Deputy Chief Morris Tabak of Sunday's attack. "It's pretty horrific. All of us who are parents, it sends chills up your spine.''
Gamero, a prior sex offender who was on probation for an earlier domestic violence case in San Mateo County, . . .

To bad Dad only had a 2*4. He should have had a 12 gauge, problem solved.
He'll get his comeuppance in prison. Convicts just love child molesters. </sarcasm>
I'll bet Dad is in the market for a firearm.
May I give you 50 feet of good sailing rope to hang the bastard with? Don't let him get some liberal do-gooders group behind him.
Kill him, right now.
It is a parents worst nightmare. That's why I have a 45 pound Rhodesian Ridgeback, soon to be an 80 pound Rhodesian Ridgeback that sleeps in my daughters room.
They'll "love him long time."
I think SF has more stringent gun laws than Boston.
Could he even have a gun in his home?
If I were the father, I would be in jail by now...
I wonder how the law addresses using something more powerful than that in those circumstances. I would guess that the law would hold that that would be about all he could do under the law...if even that. He (the father) would be viewed as the aggressor.
In the U.K. he probably would have been crucified for using the 2x4.
nightmare? yes. worst? no. Worst is having a son/daughter murder another son/daughter.
sorry to nit-pick, but it (above statement) is a pet-peeve of mine
The girl needs a doggie....

This needs a longer discussion, but you're right.
Human predators are easily identified, incurable, and time-delimited incarceration does not protect their future victims (nor the non-predators who share the prisons with them).
As soon as a human predator is identified, he should be killed (or isolated).
I too will volunteer to be on that jury.
This household has 5 dogs, the can't even fart without me knowing about it.
Oh, you noticed that, too.
Should say cat can't fart.
That is why I have and always will have 'big' dogs. And that is why they always sleep by my bed ;) Combination alarm and first line of defense :)
I hear you. If I were the mother, I'd be in the cell right next door....
you watch this perp POS will have a scumbag lawyer that will SUE the father for beating him with this 2X4 and WIN. Only in California. Watch!
The panel who let this animal out on probation would be in court now facing jail time. This sick animal needs to be put down not let out on probation. What the hell is going on?
This is what we get for an 'anything goes' tittilation driven culture...kids are so sexualized today it is positively vile and a real abomination of our species.
Add to that a 24x7 delievery system satuated with off-the-scale, twisted pornography that the Internet pumps into our households (and slaps in our face like it or not) and we are really playing with sociopathic fire.
Wonder if we will wake up before we strip ourselves of all spiritual essence in the quest to gorge ourselves for all that is 'base'?
Now here is the real problem. Once these animals exhibit this kind of behavior they should be locked away forever.
There is something here that I don't understand though. How does someone come into a private home unnoticed and manage to commit a crime like this and still go unnoticed.
I live in a rural area and never feel threatened. And, even though we don't feel threatened, the doors remain locked throughout the day and it would be impossible for someone to enter without making a lot of noise. Can't be too careful these days.
Scum such as this do not deserve to breathe our air.
Even more incentive to use a firearm in case there is any litigation afterwards
I agree. Often a predator can be identified at a very early age (7-12-14). And usually, they can't be rehabed. There was a discussion here once about killing such kids. Don't think I could live with that. But locked away forever doesn't bother me a bit.
I know the first thing I would cut off, just before I cut off his head.
Stay armed, ready, and vigilant.
I'll ditto that, B4B.
Does California publish lists of sex offenders online with address and picture?
mark my words the father will be the one to do time . the pervert will get a slap on the wrist
attorneys and bleeding-heart judges
I don't believe that one bit. They need to give this guy a choice -- cut his thing off and shove him in prison for the rest of his natural life with no chance of parole housed with the most dangerous gang in the California prison system. Or, just cut his thing off and let him bleed to death.
That's why my kids and I sleep in the same room. safety first
"He'll get his comeuppance in prison."
I'm sure that is a great comfort to the little girl.
I don't think children under 12 are unreformable enough to kill them.
"Locked away forever" creates a number of problems which you should think through.
First, it's very expensive. There are probably 50 000-100 000 eligibles right now, and many of them are wily enough to be out, or in prison for only short stretches. Converting them all to life will cost a fortune.
Second, the non-predator prison population will suffer enormously as a result of your proposal. And you can't put them all in solitary, most men cannot tolerate 30 days of solitary, much less fifty years.
Thirdly, there is the practical problem of escape.
If you could design an isolation facility (a penal colony) which was escape-proof and capable of agriculture, so that our costs would be limited to guarding the wall, I could go for it.
But killing them right away wins hands down, in my book, because it's cheaper, safer, and better for the non-predator inamtes who we will still need to incarcerate.
Not all cities do and SF being such a LIBERAL city, I doubt that they do.
May I be on that jury, please?

Hopefully he won't have the opportunity to be released. Hopefully, the other inmates will take care of that.
I agree. It is just one of those things that I don't want to be in charge of deciding :)
But if I could get my hands on this guy...
