As much as I feel for the father, I cannot abandon the concept of rule of law. It one man can extract his own justice in a case like this, where, exactly do we draw the line?

Christopher Dorner, for instance, has taken it on himself to right what he perceived to be an injustice. I recognize that the cases are not at all comparable, but where would you have us draw the line?

Dorner murdered a man's child and called him up and taunted him. Mr. Kwan would certainly be justified in flensing Dorner and serving him up as a treat for his pitbulls ~ something like that.

There's no law that provides a satisfactory outcome to Mr. Kwan. Same thing here.

If you see this as a matter of rule of law instead of justice, I can only assume that you living in Massachusetts has distorted your common sense.

His two sons were 11 and 12 years old, and they were killed in front of him.

I think an awful lot of people would draw the line somewhere beyond this guy and somewhere this side of Dorner.
