Grand jury to get case of Texas dad who beat alleged child molester to death

James Harrington, director of the Texas Civil Rights Project, an Austin-based nonprofit group, questioned the father’s decision to “summarily execute” the alleged molester without due process.

“Assuming it’s true that this guy was molesting the daughter, and we don’t know what exactly happened at this point, he would then have the right to defend [her], and hit him enough to have him stop,” Harrington told “But you cannot summarily execute him, even though I can understand the anger he would have.”

Jimmy, if you think you are advancing the cause of civil rights by saying this — you’re not.

Stop worrying so much about the rights of child rapists, and you will get more people behind your cause.


  1. […] Some idiot came out and questioned the actions of the man who beat the child rapist to death. […]

    It’s absolutely wrong to summarily execute someone who is suspected of a crime. This case, however, is not about summary execution. It’s about someone who intended only to beat the other guy up and then the guy who got beat up happens to die. Sometimes that happens which is either unfortunate or deliciously appropriate, whatever your point of view may be. I think it’s bullshit, however, to characterize it as summary execution.

    The rapists would have been better off if I were the father because I would have pulled my Concealed Weapon and put him out of his misery without the suffering of being beat to death.

  4. Vivian Louise says:

    I agree with Mexi, to call it a summary execution you’ve got to put time between the act of molesting and the father beating the guy to death. The molester was caught in the act, DURING the molestation – not three days later. If I caught someone molesting my kid I’m not stopping until the body doesn’t twitch any more, or if I even think it’s twitching anymore.

    This guy had it coming. If that was my child, I would have killed him, brought him back to life and killed his ass again!

    Mr. Harrington MUST be a lawyer. He is rightfully upset that he has lost his very large legal fee defending the “innocent” molester. Think if this was to happen to criminals caught in houses, car jackers etc. Our legal system would grind to a Greek-like halt. No money for expensive trials, no taxpayer funding for the courts…the HUMANITY!
