Sheriff: Father kills man sexually abusing his daughter
CNN ^ | 6-11-12 | Jack Maddox

Posted on 06/11/2012 5:42:41 PM PDT by inpajamas

(CNN) -- A Texas father caught a man sexually assaulting his 4-year-old daughter and punched him in the head repeatedly, killing him, authorities said.

The father was casually acquainted with the alleged abuser, said Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon.

Neither has been publicly identified.

The girl was left inside the family's house during the social gathering, while other members of her family were tending to horses, the sheriff said.

The alleged abuser was known for his horse-grooming abilities, Harmon said.

The father returned to the house, caught the man in the act, and stopped him by striking him in the head several times, Harmon said.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene, while the daughter was taken to a local hospital in Victoria, Texas, for examinations before being released. . . . .

If Obama had a friend he would look just like the poor man killed.

Not to be ugly, but it would not surprise me if the molester is undocumented.

Early reports sounds like swift Texas justice. Family oriented country around the Shiner area.

My daughter is four.

The father is completely innocent. He simply followed natural law and killed a s***stain predator that was in the process of harming his little girl.

Even if he's charged, no jury on earth could convict him.

Killing’s too good for some.

A bit of rope.
Some sugar.
Some bullet ants.
And a stake.

In California they would convict the father. In Afghanistan they would convict the 4 year old. In Texas you're probably right, he shouldn't have to worry.

Not guilty and I hope he is not charged. Among the few things in this world that I would willingly go to prison for with a smile on my face, the first would be my daughters.

I can’t even imagine what this would be like and I will pray for this family.

Awesome and true. I would add that in Britain they would execut... wait no just jail him for life. Especially if he isn’t asian. If asian they would acquit and increase his welfare payments. Truth has become parody.

Years ago there was a case in Houston where a man arriving at home from work found a creepazoid molesting his daughter. He shot the creepazoid dead, and then was charged with manslaughter and excessive force. Upon trial, the judge, whose name escapes me, inquired if there was indeed evidence that the deceased creepaziod was indeed molesting the little girl, to which the prosecution acknowledge. The judge immediately responded “Case dismissed, get out of my courtroom!” She then added “If it was me I would have done the same!”

Honestly even the die hard politically correct liberal democrats who have children will not agree with your assessment. I doubt even they are that bad.

A bit more by way of NAFBPO

Dad beats daughter’s alleged molester to death

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.

The Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office is expected to perform an autopsy on the victim to determine what caused his death.

Actually we had several Freepers defending the pervert on an earlier thread. There is a contingent at Free Republic which believes nothing anyone ever does sexually should have a negative consequence under any circumstance.

It’s not quite “case closed” just yet. We need to know if anyone involved is a white hispanic, or resembles a hypothetical son of the President.

How about walking the perp into the tool shed, super-gluing his gentleman’s sausage to the wall, handing him a knife, then setting the shed on fire?

That has to be my personal favorite.

Just make sure it’s a steel structural support. If my joint were attached to a wall, I’d carve into the wall to get it out, not into my joint.

Molesters seek out kids who have absent fathers. It’s sad but true. As for people not having as much concern for boys being molested as they do girls, I don’t agree with that. Everyone with a heart hates child abuse of all kinds.

You can't believe how tiresome it has become that almost every "Not about the November Election" thread on FR has one or several someones post some comment about Romney or Mormons on it, even when it has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic of the thread.

I think the reason the "Mayo or Miracle Whip" thread had over 300 posts was because there was really no way to insert some comment about Romney or Mormons on it, unless of course one wanted to appear to be posting from a State Hospital.
