Texas beating death of girl's alleged molester treated as a homicide
Fox News ^ | June 19, 2012 | Edmund DeMarche

The beating death of a Texas man who was allegedly sexually assaulting a 5-year-girl will be treated as a homicide investigation, the Lavaca County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The girl’s father, 23, whose name has not been released, says he caught Jesus Mora Flores, 48, trying to molest his daughter on his ranch earlier this month. After hearing the girl scream, the father found her and removed Flores from on top of his child, the statement said. He proceeded to inflict several blows to Flores’ head and neck area, the statement said.

"At this time, I believe the homicide investigation should be sent to the grand jury," Heather McMinn, the Lavaca County District Attorney, said in the statement. She went on to say the sheriff was correct not to arrest the father at the time of the incident, but "all evidence surrounding this homicide will be presented to the grand jury as soon as possible."

Sheriff Micah Harmon, according to the statement, believes the girl’s father is remorseful, and did not intend to kill Flores. He called the case "traumatizing" for the girl and her entire family.

The grand jury will consider this week if the father will face any charges.

For the benefit of Libtards everywhere, it should be noted that:

  1. This case has nothing whatsoever to do with handguns.

  2. This case has nothing whatsoever to do with stand your ground.

  3. This case has nothing whatsoever to do with self-defense.

  4. This case has everything to do with stopping a green card pervert from raping a five year old girl.

  5. Texas statutes expressly permit the use of deadly force to: prevent the ... imminent commission of aggravated kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated robbery.

  6. This law protects citizens by deterring crime and stopping crime in progress.

  7. This law saves the taxpayers money.

The father will probably not be indicted, and if he is, he will have a strong defense. My guess is that the Grand Jury is being convened to: (a) provide cover for politicians, and (b) attach jeopardy so that the father cannot be later tried for his actions.

Since it has been decided in the press that "jury of your peers" means a jury of the deceased perpetrators peers, we can look forward to a conviction by a jury of illegal pedophiles.

At least this is the first dupe thread I’ve seen today. As you know, there are lots of other previous threads on this story in the past 4-5 days.

But you make good points. You should also point out that this is a homocide before other FReepers get in a tizzy over the use of that term.

IANAL, but to the best of my understanding, this does NOT necessarily mean they regard the father as a criminal - it just means that they believe that molester’s death was due to human action. (It was.)

The grand jury will clear him. You can bet the farm on that (with bushes and dead body removed, of course).

We’ve known it was a homicide since day one - that was never at issue. The only question is whether it is justifiable homicide and all the evidence clearly says YES.

“Jesus Mora Flores”

Is this a white hispanic? Or some other kind of hispanic?

Did he have Skittles?

Seriously, lucky for the father the perp was Hispanic, or Jessee Jackson would be calling for him to be hung.

If I had been there, I would have given the father my cane to help.

Of course this was/is a homicide. It is appropriate for the Grand Jury to review the facts of the case. IMHO, after the Grand Jury has reviewed the facts, the father of the victim should receive a public award.

Of course it’s a homicide. The point is that from what we know about it, under Texas law (and any code of morality that allows the use of violence to defend the innocent) it was a justifiable homicide.

It’s Texas ... the grand jury will dismiss it.

In that part of Texas and with the facts being what they are, the Rev Jackson is more likely to be hung than the father.

Without question, the killing of the child molester in Shiner was a Homicide, just like when a death row inmate is executed, we rule it as a Homicide.
