I haven't found anything about the underlying story, but you can't help but cheer these families on as they do what most of us wish we could do to pedophiles.

The sad part is that these parents were stopped by the local police.

Well, if it had not been the cops, it would have been some whack-job liberal moron judge who does not believe in punishment...God knows we are infested with these liberal freaks (pedofiles and judges).

Oh great...now the media is going to spin this like a top.

CNN: "But he paid for his crime"
MSNBC: "Where are the pics of these perps who beat him?"
LATimes: "Such Lawlessness. These thugs need to be executed"
Colmes from Fox: "Bush sent them"

It's times like these that I want to embrace multiculturalism.

My father used to say (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) that the penalty for some very, very serious crimes should be 30 days in prison.

The idea being that on the day of release, someone might be willing to dish out some more extreme justice, and then be prepared to spend 30 days in jail for it.

If you think about this, it would be a powerful deterrant, as well as an easy way for a community to cleanup the gene pool.

But, of course, he said it tongue-in-cheek.

When people have no faith in the law, they take the law into their own hands. Often with tragic results, of course.

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that pedophiles don't get cured, especially just by "paying their debt to society" through jail time. See http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1618514/posts. And the damage that the pedophile does to children is deep and long term to the kids. Get involved some time with an investigation into pedophiles that frequent bathrooms in parks, etc. No jail time is sufficient, IMHO.
