Opinion: Does an angry parent killing a child molester ever serve justice?

What do you think of a man who has been charged with killing an unarmed man? Inexcusable, right? Now, would it change your mind if the dead man had molested a child and the accused shooter was the child’s father?

All right, here’s more information: The molestation happened a dozen years ago. Finally, would it change your thinking to know the dead man had already served time in prison for the crime and paid restitution? Opinion Piece

It should be perfectly clear to anyone who doesn’t believe in, and recognizes the danger of double standards that it is a crime to murder anyone for any reason; especially if they have served time and/or paid restitution. It’s highly disturbing that the court is even considering anything other than premeditated murder against the man who murdered Raymond Earl Brooks in cold blood; Jay Maynor. The fact that Brooks was a registrant who served his time, and paid restitution, and presumably led a law abiding life upon release. If he continued any kind of criminal conduct you can rest assured… Read more »

I am interested in knowing what defensive measures you have in place, but would not want you to expose them publicly, of course. Is there any chance you could share via email? I own my home, have lived there 14 years and, apart from my wife’s car and the house getting egged a year or two ago, nothing has happened. Early Father’s Day I got a text from my next door neighbor that my truck – which I park at the curb – was hit over night and the mirror was still in the street. I automatically assumed the worst:… Read more »

That’s easy and not a problem. Just make sure whatever you have is legal. I have a couple of cans of wasp and hornet spray (the kind that sprays 20 ft) that use to keep the wasps and hornets around here in check, which I could use instead of mace. I also have garden tools all over, like picks and several axes and hatchets, which I’m sure would make anyone think twice about getting anywhere near me. Just be aware of what you have at hand and know where it is. It’s sad that I have to do this. I… Read more »

Thanks for the input and I can certainly relate to your sentiment toward the government who does not just treat us badly, but the entire populace, indeed the world. Snowden revealed just how little privacy anyone has anymore. Whether you are the student body president or President of Germany, Big Brother knows all. As I watch the events unfold in Iraq I laugh at the awesome folly of the American government and monumental stupidity of the American people who allow their children to be killed overseas in regions stuck in Stone Age. If they are so incredibly foolish to believe… Read more »

PS – But I’ not bitter. 🙂

C: My sentiment is based on factual truth, as is yours. I agree with you on the Iraq folly the Kenyan is getting ready to jump back into. I knew a couple of weeks back that the Kenyan would use Iraq as an excuse to go into Syria, and now he is manufacturing consent to do just that; probably to bring his brand of peace to the country, like the peace in Libya and Iraq. I never have been affiliated with any political organization, or any organization other than AA until I found CA-RSOL; the only worthwhile organization that deals… Read more »

I forgot to mention the Ukraine

Note: the article requires subscription, so only the first couple of paragraphs can be read. Can someone summarize the article, including the gist of the author’s own bias? Thanks.

Hmm… That’s odd. I got the entire article. But I have experienced whited out articles in the past.

How about an angry parent helping to create and pass laws against offenders who never touched his/her child?? Maybe never touched any child.

For those having trouble getting more than a few paragraphs here’s what you need to know. The opinion piece questions whether or not vigilante justice is justice at all. Using the recent Alabama case as a foreground and other prominent examples from previous years as a background in showcasing the different times where vigilante justice was applied, but sometimes not seen as criminal by the law and other times prosecuted with (public supporters) leaning favor of the vigilante rather than the law. In the end the author wonders how the justice system in the United States can be upheld when… Read more »

Justice will be the father getting convicted of 1st degree murder. Maybe he weighed the “one man’s justice” idea against the justice system and decided it was worth it…as we all know all too well:you can’t stop someone intent on committing a crime. I’m not saying I condone his actions, but I understand. Sad to say it, but at least he didn’t go on a crusade to drive the steamroller of the system over every offender by turning his daughter into a poster child of victimhood. Maybe, in the interest of jurisprudence, we should disarm and monitor everyone who’s ever… Read more »

In my opinion, this man should be convicted of 1st degree murder and spend the rest of his life behind bars (I don’t believe in the death penalty for anyone – period). This was a well-written op-ed.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
