Pedophile tries to kidnap a child but gets beaten to a pulp instead
opposingviews ^ | Kathryn Schroeder

Posted on 06/13/2014 2:24:07 AM PDT by The Right wing Infidel

Jesse Brisbin, a 30-year-old twice-convicted sex offender allegedly attempted to abduct a six-year-old girl from a Seattle park on Thursday evening, but he picked the wrong park to act on his compulsion. According to witnesses, he made it about three blocks with the girl after grabbing her by the hand and wrapping his shirt around her face before a group of about 20 neighborhood children and adults caught up with him.

According to the Seattle Police Department, the six-year-old girl broke free and Brisbin tried to run away. The men tackled Brisbin, who lives only about a half-mile from Benefit Park. The girl’s father then made the man call 911 on his own cell phone, reporting himself to police. When the cops got there, they found three men, including the girl’s father, delivering a beating to the fallen Brisbin.

As one witness reported, Brisbin assaulted one of the men who caught up to him as he tried to get away, which sparked their attack on him.

The six-year-old child was playing in the park with her siblings when Brisbin allegedly approached her and asked him to come wither her. She recognized Brisbin from the neighborhood and from a time when he had attempted to purchase a household appliance from her parents. But she refused to go with him.

“The scariest part was I didn’t want to go with the man with the red and black bag,” the girl told KIRO TV News, “and he took me all the way down the hill.”

Who knows what would have happened to the girl had the concerned neighbors failed to chase down the suspect and administer a dose of instant karma?

“When he got her he took his shirt off and tied it over her face and her ears and told her that he was going to take the poison out of her,” said the girl’s mom, Vernee Fletcher, through tears.

Fletcher got her daughter back soon after the incident, and she believes she might never have seen her child again, if not for the prompt reaction of her neighbors. “It felt like my skin melted into hers, the harder I hugged her.”

Brisbin was wearing an ankle bracelet at the time of the attempted kidnapping, stemming from a 2009 conviction for exposing himself to two children in Bellvue, Washington. He was also convicted of kidnapping, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment in New Jersey 10 years before that. In that case, he was also disciplined for attempting to cut off his required ankle bracelet.

“We’re kind of wondering how was someone like this is roaming around in our neighborhood,” said Fletcher, who also believes that the close sense of community in the Seattle neighborhood around Benefit Park is what ultimately saved her daughter from an unthinkable fate.

:: We’re kind of wondering how was someone like this is roaming around in our neighborhood ::

Because hand-wringers in your State (not you, RWI) have determined that sexual urges of any type are acceptable and, if you cross over community norms according to those urges....

The DEATH PENALTY is just too cruel and unusual a punishment.

This is actually a “happy” story and kudoes to the community activists that did the beating.

I’d like to hear about other parents on FR handling such situations. I have one that I’ll relate in another post.

Somehow I kind of doubt that he was a conservative/Tea Party kind of guy. Bet he has an Obama sticker on his car.

We took my youngest daughter and her friends to a Harry Potter movie for her birthday; about 10 people, including my wife and I.

We sat about 4 rows behind the group. While waiting for the “previews” to end, a scruffy ne’er-do-well arrived and sat right behind the group. I moved to a position immediately behind this perv and, in a low voice, told him that I was committed to watching him and not the movie.

He left about 15 minutes into the movie.

As good a story as any. Too bad the perv survived. He would have tortured and murdered that little girl, and given the chance he'll kill another little girl.

Pedophile need to be removed from society forever.

If this were England, the perv would be free and the three men defending the girl would be looking at 20 years each.

And the judge would have said the following:

“The man (perv) has been through enough, he won’t do it again (LOL). The defenders went WAY BEYOND what was necessary to secure the girl. Once they had the girl, there was no need for further action.”

20 years each, lives ruined - as if the 3 guys had instead planned and robbed a bank, and shot someone in the process.

Thankfully this isn’t England, but it is Seattle, so we’ll see.

I don’t know or really care about his political leanings.

But I’ve got a pretty good guess of the politics of the NJ and WA judges who gave him short sentences, freed him repeatedly—and put him in an ankle bracelet after a prior escape thereof.

Sounds like the cops have their backs. Perp reportedly attacked one of them.

They need to throw away the key. This guy should never see the light of day and the cops, most of whom are probably dads themselves, know it.

He fits right in with historical libertarian party platforms from the eighties.

Good to hear - I don’t want complete vigilante justice (i.e., beating him to death) - as I think that leads towards anarchy, but I don’t mind pervs like that being taught a REAL lesson either. The 3 guys would certainly get a pass on any jury that I was on.

The death penalty, applied immediately after conviction, is the only proper punishment for pedophilia. Too bad the people did not beat this creature to death at the park.

Even in liberal Seattle, I don’t believe that this sort of behavior is well-received.

When I was a kid, there was a guy in the neighborhood watching kids go to and from school, to put it mildly, with great interest. A few fathers, construction workers who I new had friends in “other businesses”, went over to the guy’s house and explained to him that this was not a good idea. He was never seen outdoors again.

Oddly enough, there does appear to be a cure, or at least one that works on those who want badly enough to be cured.

The conventional wisdom is that this behavior has little or nothing to do with sexuality. Since progressives define sex as Good, anything sexual that is Bad, such as child molestation or rape, must be redefined as not really being about sex at all. Which really messes with our ability to deal with them.

It is generally accepted that child molesters reoffend when released at a rate in the vicinity of 90%. Which is where the notion comes from that there is no cure.

However, several countries and I believe one or two states allow the option of chemical castration to offenders who request it. Apparently the recidivism rate for those treated in this way is somewhere around 10%, much lower than for most crimes.

We should remember that some of those with these compulsions are not necessarily and inherently evil people. We don’t get to consciously choose our compulsions, though in general we can decide consciously whether to act on them.

Those requesting this form of treatment are obviously powerfully motivated to stop the behavior, so they are not necessarily a representative group. But the results do seem to show that treatment is possible. It also demonstrates, IMO, that the sex hormones interacting with the brain make such behaviors very nearly irresistible. Remove the sex hormones, and the behavior can be, or at least very often is, successfully resisted.

There is a “Treatment Center” for that type of creep not far from here. Less than 1% ever get out of there and when they do, they are in a “box”, never again to molest a child or anyone else.

He’s not in prison because his term has run out, so he’s been released.

He’s still needing oxygen because we don’t allow the death penalty for child molestation or rape.

If we are going to not give these guys all life terms, at some point they will be released. When released they have to reside somewhere. Wherever they live, they will have neighbors, and some of those neighbors will have children.

Years ago I saw a video clip taken by a local TV station that was amazing.The setting was an airport where the kidnapper and/or abuser of a child was scheduled to arrive after having been extradited from another state.As he was being escorted by a couple of cops one could see a bank of payphones in the background,one of which was apparently being used.As they passed that bank of payphones the guy on the phone turned and shot the perp dead.Turns out it was the child's father.
