Skip to comments.Texas father kills man trying to sexually assault daughter, police say
Posted on 06/16/2012 4:32:24 PM PDT by Albion Wilde
A Texas father has not been arrested and is unlikely to face charges after he beat a man to death for trying to molest his 4-year-old daughter at their rural ranch, authorities said Monday.
Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said... the victim was a 47-year-old man from Gonazles with no apparent prior criminal history.... an "acquaintance" of the father who had come to help care for some horses...
The father called police late Saturday afternoon and told them he attacked a man caught trying to sexually assault his daughter, Harmon said. The alleged attack happened near a barn where some horses were being kept.

Thanks for those links, deport. Prayers for the girl and her father. What a good man — and so young. He sired her when he was only 18 or 19. But when push came to shove, he was her brave hero.
Back when I was a kid, we didn’t have to worry much about perverts sexually assaulting us, or even trying. Most of us had daddies who were combat veterans fresh off the battlefields of WWII, were toughened and armed, which really wasn’t necessary since they could kill with their bare hands. Any likely attackers were honestly afraid of the daddies; and there were fewer lowlifes like that then, as well as fewer avenues of visual perversion - illegals were non-existent.
I was glad to see this made national news. Makes me proud to live in Texas.
There are updates to this case that were released today.
It feels more unjust to my daughter...not to mention, she is currently writing a letter to the parole board for the monster who raped me back in 1990. Every 3 years, he comes up eligible to have a parole hearing. She doesn’t have much faith in the legal system because of all this. I’m glad this daddy spared his daughter that pain!
I'm from the same era. Yet, there were two dangerous people in our lovely middle-class suburb. One was a hermit who lived in the woods; the other was an adopted teenage girl who may have herself been a victim. Word got out fast to avoid going near either one.
Once the Good Humor man fondled one of the 12-year-old girls at the school bus stop, in front of several other kids. She kicked him with her sturdy oxford shoes directly between his butt cheeks, whereupon he fainted from pain. LOL!! Seems he had just had hemorrhoid surgery. The moron.
Again, my heart goes out to you. God will repay. And I hope you receive some temporal justice, as well.
“She doesnt have much faith in the legal system because of all this.”
I can’t blame her. I don’t have a lot of faith in the judicial system either. I avoid the court system. Thank goodness this father doesn’t have to rely on the judicial system to decide if this pervert is guilty or innocent. The watch them hand him a “STET” and tell him to behave himself. Could you imagine? It’s done with and soon (With God’s grace and the grand jury’s common sense) the father will be free to heal with his little girl
This perp's recidivism rate, contrary to what the psych community tells us, will be zero.
That should save Lavaca County MH a bundle on "treatment" and "counseling".
They'll have this: that Daddy really will be his little girl's great big hero. Mom, take care of that man.
He will reproach himself for having brought that filth onto his property.
Yeah, call the family. Get the mother and her family priest to come get the body in person ...... she will burn, burn. Mexican society doesn't think any more of men like her son than we do.
It is sad, however, but most of these types of crimes occur by someone familiar, a friend, family member, coach, etc. Most people never see it coming. It has been going on forever. Most children just never told anyone before. They were ashamed to embaress the family, etc. or just scared to say anything. But, parents are educating their children on this subject more and kids are finally talking. I'm glad that Law Enforcement, the legal & judicial system is waking up.
I have to disagree with you. I believe this was going on back then too. Chidren hid it more back then. Also, children were not educated on this subject. Actually, the subject was not discussed. Things were more ‘secret’. Perverts were better at getting away with it back then and they certainly do not have to be illegal immigrants. They were prestigious attorneys, pastors, next door neighbor who everyone loved, etc. It stings even worse when they are illegal immigrants, because they shouldn’t be here to begin with.
Let’s pray that the relatives in Mexico don’t try and sue the father for the death of the attacker...
At that point, It would be time to sick Sherrif Joe on them.
But, I don’t see that happening at all. He just brought complete humiliation to his family.
The morons who keep writing this story have this Mexican dirt-bag as the ‘’victim’’. He’s the (deceased) ‘’criminal’’. The child is the ‘’victim’’ here. The gist I get here is that this is an Anglo-Saxon(white) American father who killed a Mexican pervert.
Like your Bible reference. Mine, Proverbs 9;10.
In one of the other threads about this case, I read that the grandfather speaks haltingly in English. So it is possible that the father and little girl are also Hispanics. That part doesn't really matter to me. What matters is that this country treats child rape the same as shoplifting. It should be a capital offense at any age if there is force or terror; and absolutely no exceptions for a child below the age of majority.
Subject was “Daddy Defending Their Daughters”, as this daddy did.
