Instant Justice

Convicted Sexual Predator goes where he shouldn't. Convicted Sexual Predator then attempts to get jiggy with an eleven year old boy. Boy's father then proceeds to beat the hell out of Convicted Sexual Predator with an axe handle. Both men get arrested.

Now, I'm all for whuppin anyone who tries to molest your kid. But I do have a few questions before I declare the father free of blame. Just what kind of "private community home" was the boy at? Was he with his father visiting? "Private Community Home" sounds like code for "Halfway-house for sex offenders", and if that's the case, what the hell was this father doing, bringing his kid there? On the other hand, if this was some sort of retirement community or assisted living home that the father and son were visiting, then by all means, beat that molester like a red-headed stepchild.

Here's a simple solution: If someone gets convicted of molesting little kids, LOCK THEIR ASS UP AND THROW AWAY THE DAMN KEY! That way you won't have to worry about kiddy-diddlers re-offending! But hey, maybe that's too "simplistic" for some people.

Hat tip to Random Nuclear Strikes.
