Texas Deputies are not going to pursue charges against the father who used his bare hands to kill another man when he walked in on him sexually assaulting his 4 year old daughter.
On June 9th, a father caught a 47 year old man attempting to molest his daughter. According to Sheriff Harmon, the father heard his daughter scream, so he went to investigate. He walked in on this man in the act of molesting his daughter. He immediately reacted by repeatedly punching him in the face and in the head.
The father struck him so hard that he was instantly killed, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Luckily, the 4 year old was left physically unharmed, thanks to her father.
While the Sheriff’s Office is not filing charges, they are deferring the case to a grand jury to decide whether or not charges will be made.
Of course, we all say we would kill anyone who laid a hand on our children, but we also know that we would end up in prison for a long time in most cases. While it’s something that we, as parents, would love to justify, I’m not sure that we can.
