This father has nothing be be remorseful about. He saved his daughter, and got rid a child molester. Lavaca County should throw this guy a parade and award him with a Father-Of-The-Year Award.

Wow, man. That was so enlightening. I never knew this. Thanks.

Gun owners ! Listen to me: a cop has only an average brain; they are just blue collar workers. And Armed Veteran is the proof.

If your average is an IQ of 138, then you would be right, except that I am not a cop.

And in your PRI (People's Republic of Illinois), that father would be looking at life in prison.

He's bitter because every cop in the country is part of a massive cabal against him personally. In other words...he's nuttier than squirrel turds.

I've heard that shooting an escaping felon..or one in the act(?) of a violent crime (like this) is justified. Not being there at the precise moment it's impossible to say if this was (technically) a good shoot.

However, in the grand scheme of things, I'd say it likely was, even if there were doubts. This is one of those bad-guys that God can "sort-out".

He didn't shoot the molester. He beat him to death with his bare hands (punching him in the head).

Wrong.

If the cops are ordered to rape children, should they obey orders ?

Sorry, I usually read the story, but since it was in G&A, I made a false assumption. Under the circumstances, it STILL looks justified since the mut was in the act of molesting the girl and the spontaneous reaction of the father was necessary to stop the attack. If a Grand jury looks at this, I trust they would sympathise with the father and see this as an instinctual action, and one that was necessary at the time. IOW, any reasonable Man would do the same.

The cops love this one. This one helps them skip due process. Cops hate that pesky Constitution.

They use a 'four year old' to help them deny the 'dead' his rights.

Anyone who would get behind the so-called pedophile must be one himself and doesn't care about kids.

A gun owner should walk away from this (a gun owner should demand an investigation), otherwise the Gestapo will deny gun owners their rights (in the middle of the night).

Armed Veteran got behind this immediately, more proof he's here posing. He thinks he's a 'man' by supporting the dad, but we all know better. As if some people would cheer the alleged pervert.

Well, since this took place in Texas, they probably would have done the same thing as they did in this case...let the dad go.

Amen.

This man should not be charged in this death.
If a man did the same to my daughter when she was
5, or any age for that matter, I'd kill him in a
heartbeat.
Any father would that loves his child and wants
to protect them.
If this jerk got away with this, he'd do it to another child and probably kill them when he was through using
them. Better he's dead.
A worthless piece of s***, hopefully burning in hell
right now.

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters)- A grand jury next week will consider whether to file charges against a Texas father who said he beat to death a man who was attempting to sexually assault his 5-year-old daughter, the district attorney for Lavaca County said on Friday.

A witness saw Jesus Flores, 47, "forcibly" carrying the girl to a secluded location and notified her 23-year-old father, who was attending a barbecue at the family's ranch outside Shiner, Texas, last Saturday, District Attorney Heather McMinn said.

The father, whose name has not been released because he has not been charged with a crime, heard his daughter's screams and ran to a secluded area, where he "removed Flores from on top of his child and, in the process, inflicted several blows to the man's head and neck area," McMinn said.

The father admitted to Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon and a Texas Ranger investigating the case that he beat Flores to death in an effort to protect his child.

I think that was Version III. Version IV comes on Monday.

Yea. All the tough guys will be defending dad (as if most people are either indifferent over pedophiles or are afraid of them).

But many of us really don't give a fk about hero talk.
