UPDATE (June 19, 2012) — the Lavaca County District Attorney, Heather McMinn, says they are treating the death of 48-year old Jesus Mora Flores as a homicide.
I’m OK with sending the evidence up to a grand jury. But there simply is no way in hell that the grand jury will or should indict the father of this little girl.
UPDATE II (June 20) — The grand jury has (wisely) decided not to indict the father for doing what a father should do when catching a grown man trying to rape his 4-year old daughter.
Even before I became a father, I fully understand and support this. Now that I am a new father? And thinking about anybody doing anything so abhorrent to my child? There is no doubt I would go insane and would likely do the exact same thing. Except I most likely would have a gun on me (as I almost always do), and would not have had to expend any additional effort than unholstering and emptying my magazine.
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.
Not only do I condone the father’s actions — I support them, if not encourage them (if you catch someone raping your baby, I’d hope you’d beat them to death, too).
I hope a grand jury decides not to indict. And if they do, I hope every single person on his jury is the father of a young baby girl.
Asked whether they would press charges against the father, the sheriff responded, “You have a right to defend your daughter. He acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him.”
There needs to be a new federal law that simply says, “If you catch someone raping one of your children, you can kill them.” Period.
