Dad beats daughter’s alleged molester to death
Houston Chronicle ^ | June 11, 2012

Posted on 06/11/2012 10:23:24 AM PDT by BradtotheBone

A father who said he saw a man molesting his 4-year-old daughter behind a barn in Lavaca County apparently beat the man to death Saturday afternoon, officials said.

The death occurred about 3:45 p.m. at a horse barn along County Road 302 near Shiner, about 127 miles west of Houston, said Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon.

Harmon said the victim, a 47-year-old Gonzales man, died at the scene. His name has not been released because his next of kin has not yet been notified of the death.

No arrests have been made in the case. Harmon said a grand jury will probably to determine what, if any charges, will be filed.

Harmon said the father and daughter were at their barn with several other people to groom and care for horses there. The victim came with some of the other people, but was not well-known, if all, to the father and child.

The group later heard the girl screaming behind the barn, Harmon said. Her father ran to see what was wrong and said he saw the man allegedly sexually assaulting the child. While pulling the man away from the girl, he hit the man several times in the head, Harmon said.

The girl was taken to DeTar hospital in Victoria to be evaluated and to have tests done to determine if a sexual assault occurred. She was released later

Indeed. Courts would have turned the abuser loose...to do the same to another little girl.

Good on him. No charges should be filed. A public service medal should be awarded.

If there was a one to one relationship between sexual assault on a child and death of the perp, we would have a lot fewer of both.

Notice how the article uses their journalistic sleight-of-hand to change the dead perp into “the victim”.

If Mr. Gonzales turns out to be a black man who looks like Barack Obama’s brother, the poor father can expect to be in for hell on earth. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the whole cadre of race pimps are standing by salivating.

He didn’t hit the man over the head. Several small meteors hit him there. Could have happened, right? I would call that reasonable doubt if I were on the jury.

If you know what I mean...

Was she or wasn’t she? This is a stupid article. The fact of the matter is, the father beat the guy and killed him. Safe to assume that if the perp hadn’t assaulted her, it was only by the quick action of the dad beating the guy who had that intent.

Daddy’s girl knows who was her hero that day.

Wonder how the girl got away from the father in the first place without him knowing?

That said, the father was fully justified in what he did.

He was the perp. The little girl was the victim.

I see 2 victims here, the little girl was the primary one of course, her father was the other one. The molester made the father kill him.

Regardless of "common knowledge", it is not pleasant to most people to kill another person, no matter the circumstances.

Don't take me the wrong way, it is sometimes absolutely called for and an appropriate response, as in this case.

I'll be 67 on the 29 the of this month and probably a bit long in the tooth to be beating someone to death, unless he was an incredible weakling, so if I witness such a heinous act as this father did, I'd be compelled to kill him with a gun.

Kudos to this great dad for defending his little daughter.

IF (big if) the guy was messing wit the girl, then I agree with those who think dad deserves a medal. IF. IF the girl was NOT abused, adn dad is makgin this up to cover something else up, like the guy owed huim money, then that is a different story. i remember duke lacross adn trayvon martin. what the news people tell us is often far from the truth.

I’ve got no problem with father-administered justice, particularly since the courts are way too lenient in cases like this. But I hope for the father’s sake, he’s got some evidence to support what he says. The article is a little sketchy on that point.

My wife and I raised 4, two of them the same age, the other two not far from them in age. It's next to impossible, if not down right impossible to watch their every move and just a few minutes of eyes off them can be disastrous.

We do the best we can and pray that God will keep them safe.

Where is the "big IF" there? The whole group, including people the perp came there with, are lying? Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon is lying?

If his account of what happened to his daughter is correct, that man is a friend to every parent in America. If he’s prosecuted for anything please let us know how to contribute to the defense.

It’s time to stand up for hometown heroes.

The father would have been required to kill the little girl in order to restore the honor of his family.
