Why did I see this coming?

Wasn't this a Twilight Zone episode? A guy's wife is raped and later they are out driving and she tells him she sees the guy who raped her. The husband gets out and kills him. They get back in the car and a few blocks later the wife points at another guy and says that she's sure that he's the rapist...

And THIS is why vigilante justice is wrong, no matter what the crime.
I hope this guy gets the chair, after a fair trial. And I'm against the DP. He has completely pereverted the justice system.
 
2006-10-19 02:41:04 PM  
Anyone interested in pulling up the previous threads to see who lauded the guy as a hero?

Yeah, me neither. The whole episode is just very, very sad.
 
2006-10-19 02:46:20 PM  
No backsies on your HERO tags, dumbasses.
 
2006-10-19 02:54:52 PM  
I'm curious how many people who were convinced that "justice was served" in this case were also convinced that John Mark Karr killed JonBenet Ramsey.
 
2006-10-19 02:56:48 PM  
Doh
 
2006-10-19 02:57:40 PM  
oops, my bad
 
2006-10-19 03:02:06 PM  
Dont forget the chick is just as guilty.
 
2006-10-19 03:02:09 PM  
Maybe it was the kid who did the molesting

Right because the police are always right about these things especially when the victim is 2 years old. The sad truth is we'll never know if this is true or not.
 
2006-10-19 03:08:43 PM  
I think Nancy Grace did it.
 
2006-10-19 03:17:14 PM  
Jury of one...
 
2006-10-19 03:21:06 PM  
I tried thinking up something witty or sarcastic to say here, but I'm too sick to. I hope that everyone who called this asshole a hero feels as guilty as they should.
 
2006-10-19 03:23:40 PM  
I think NuttierThanEver molested her. It's sad that we'll never know for sure.
 
2006-10-19 03:24:28 PM  
I forget what eight was for: Anyone interested in pulling up the previous threads to see who lauded the guy as a hero?

I recall that most people would like to take out the guy IF he actually was guilty.
 
2006-10-19 03:25:13 PM  
Anyone have a link to the original thread?
 
2006-10-19 03:33:40 PM  
Guilty or not, this is still one of the funniest comments ever: When her mother asked her to explain, the girl said "that Barry puts it on her belly and her nose," the report said.
 
2006-10-19 03:40:51 PM  
jimmy it's funny you would try to throw suspicion off yourself by accusing me.
 
2006-10-19 04:00:09 PM  
Someone's going to comment on this while I'm typing this sentence, but, accussations?
 
2006-10-19 04:01:37 PM  
Until you prove you didn't molest that poor girl, we just can't be sure.
 
2006-10-19 04:01:57 PM  
So, dad of the year, how do you feel now? Better? Or Worse?

Hmm time to bring out the "JUST KEEDING!" defense?
 
2006-10-19 04:03:05 PM  
Vigilante justice wins again!!!

(in Beavis voice): "Give em the chair...the chair...yeah, yeah"
 
2006-10-19 04:03:06 PM  
"accussations"

Next time, you may want to compose your headline in Word, spellcheck it, then paste it into the submission form.
 
2006-10-19 04:03:39 PM  
I think the point that jimmy so slyly made is that, regardless of the girl's age, this is why we presume innocence until proof of guilt. No evidence of wrongdoing=no stabbing to death, as a general rule.
 
2006-10-19 04:03:46 PM  
And it never would have happened if we had sensible gun control in this country.

Wait, what? A knife?

Nevermind.
 
2006-10-19 04:03:55 PM  
So what is the deal here. Is the mother making shiat up to cover something up. Perhaps an affair with the guy who was killed?
 
2006-10-19 04:05:18 PM  
You know... If my little girl (she's almost 4) pointed out some guy and made accusations like that, there's a chance, however slight, that I might just fark up in the same way.

That's not a commentary so much as an observation.

/ didn't RTFA.
// really don't wanna.

"How was I supposed to know that there's an actual guy named Joe Vigilante?"
 
2006-10-19 04:06:09 PM  
jimmyhaha: Until you prove you didn't molest that poor girl, we just can't be sure.

How do we know you didn't molest the poor girl?
 
2006-10-19 04:07:07 PM  
xopher.tm - that's why you should have stopped at the drugstore - 4 year olds are not reliable, ever.
 
2006-10-19 04:07:10 PM  
A molestation complaint was filed against James shortly after he was killed.

Well, that'll learn 'im.
 
2006-10-19 04:07:38 PM  
That dudes hardcore...I bet he was one of those kids in school that you could tell him that Johnny said your momma a whore and he would run over and fight'em...
 
2006-10-19 04:07:54 PM  
He puts it on my belly and on my nose when he comes to me in the starry night? What kind of two year old talks like this?
 
2006-10-19 04:08:11 PM  

When her mother asked her to explain, the girl said "that Barry puts it on her belly and her nose," the report said.


Anyone else's skin just try to crawl away?
 
2006-10-19 04:08:23 PM  
The guy was a pervert and a loser anyway. Hero tag still valid by reason of population control.

Yup, I remember that one. Interestingly, it's what came to mind when I first heard of this case.

Let this be a lesson, ALWAYS check facts before dishing out vigilante justice.

Epsilon: He puts it on my belly and on my nose when he comes to me in the starry night? What kind of two year old talks like this?

I was thinking the same thing. Her sentence composition and vocabulary is impressive.
 
2006-10-19 04:08:52 PM  
Meh, say what you want about the dad--a lot of parents would've done the same thing. However, if he had managed to calm down and gather evidence then this could've been avoided.

thejoyofpi: How do we know you didn't molest the poor girl?

How do I know you didn't molest her, then travel back in time and kill John F. Kennedy Jr.?
 
2006-10-19 04:09:56 PM  
I fully expect John Mark Karr to admit both the molestation and murder, and Nancy Grace will get off yet again.

/meh
 
2006-10-19 04:10:38 PM  
Well, better safe than sorry.
 
2006-10-19 04:10:46 PM  
Until further notice, it is assumed that everyone who has taken part in this thread has molested that girl.

Please, don't forget to close your windows.
 
2006-10-19 04:11:31 PM  
The girl "explained that she did not want to go home because of Barry," police said in the report. When her mother asked her to explain, the girl said "that Barry puts it on her belly and her nose," the report said. When her mother asked her when James does this, she replied, "He comes to me in the starry nights."

based on these (wholly abstract and nonsensical) statements made by a 4 year old, they accused the guy of molestation?
 
2006-10-19 04:11:32 PM  
dhudd: xopher.tm - that's why you should have stopped at the drugstore - 4 year olds are not reliable, ever.

Neither are 5 year olds, 6 year olds, 7 year olds, 8 year olds, 9 year olds, 10 year olds... on up to about 108 I think.

After that, I'll take it on a case by case basis.
 
2006-10-19 04:11:36 PM  
Father pled not guilty? What?
 
2006-10-19 04:11:42 PM  
Epsilon: What kind of two year old talks like this?

A two-year-old on acid.
