I abhor violence and would say that I am not a violent man. However, there are times when I find myself cheering on acts of violence that seem… justified.
This is one of those cases.
A Daytona Beach man walked into his home and realized immediately that something was wrong. The house was too quiet.
That’s when the man opened the door to a back room in the house and found an 18 year old neighbor sexually abusing his 11 year old son. The rest of the story is very violent.
The father did exactly what he needed to do. He proceeded to beat the cowardly rapist to a bloody pulp – knocking him out (once or twice) and turning his face into something out of a horror movie.
Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood said the police have no plans to charge the father with any crime, “Dad was acting like a dad. I don’t see anything we should charge the dad with,” Chitwood said. “You have an 18-year-old who has clearly picked his target, groomed his target and had sex with the victim multiple times.”
A transcript of the dad’s call to 911 is a little more descriptive about what transpired before police arrived.
“I just walked in on a grown man molesting… And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer. I didn’t proceed to ask him any questions sir. He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you. I drug him out to the living room. Send an ambulance. He is going to need one.
When the dispatcher asked the dad to describe what had happened – the answer was simple.
“He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said,” the father told the dispatcher. “I did whatever I got a right to do except I didn’t kill him.”
The father added that he told the molesting thug, “You are damn lucky boy that I love my God.”
We don’t condone violence, but a father should have the leeway to do what he must to protect his children. When the police brought this evil criminal in for questioning, he quickly admitted that he had committed the heinous crime that he was being accused of. In fact, he had been molesting the poor child since he was 8 years old. Hopefully, the rapist will have many, many years to sit in prison and consider the horrible nature of his crimes.
We applaud this dad for doing what was needed to protect his innocent little boy.
