I honestly think that was the best call. I don't support vigilante justice, but it seems that he just flew into a blind rage and seemed to actually be worried of the chance of the guy dying when he called 9/11, so I don't think it was his intention to end the guy's life, but rather that he just couldn't stop himself from beating the guy lifeless.

Awesome of the libertarian news sites to finally pick up this story which broke in June of 2012. I guess news travels slow around the freedom blogs.

This is a follow-up story. The decision not to indict happened very recently. That may explain the use of the "follow-up" tag.

Its not vigilantism to stop a crime in the midst of being committed.

But this wasnt vigilante justice.
He stop a rapist in the ACT of raping his daughter. As soon as she was safe he called 911.
While I am CERTAIN that his adrenaline was up, that is not the same thing as rage.
This is one of those cut and dry cases.

Unless all the facts are lies.

I am not a father, but if I caught anyone raping a five year old, I would do my best to kill them then and there.

I could have sworn they announced they wouldn't be charging him like a week after the incident.

There is no way that I could find him guilty if I were on the jury.

Well it's a good thing that's not what happened at all.  I was expecting to see that when I clicked, and found he caught the guy raping his 5 y/o daughter, beat him unconscious to eliminate the threat to his daughter and himself, and called 911.  I can't find anything wrong with what he did.  He was probably more compassionate and reasonable than most would be if they came across that scene.

DA's don't like to pick up cases where they have a very good chance of losing.

Is someone going to even try to play devil's advocate on this?

This pretty much sums it up for me.  Lost his cool in a rage at what he was seeing, but still had enough self-control to stop and then try to save the guy's life by calling for help.

I don't think I could have been that merciful in his place.

Good on him.

Good on the state of Texas.

I can't believe I said that last bit.

so if they get away with it, then the worst they get is jail?  that's a slippery slope that would turn into a landslide if it were your own family.  Maybe you should rethink whether your moral ground needs to be so lofty.

Had I seen the thread a bit earlier, I would have given it a go, and then I'd have been called a troll no less than 4 times, possibly as many as 8 or 9 if wasn't a Sunday night thread on a holiday weekend.  I mean, I do absolutely think it's wrong that the father killed his child's molester, but I don't think many of us could say for certain that were we in that situation, we wouldn't at least consider doing the same.

Some men need killing. No horse needs stealing.
