Do you think this is murder, manslaughter or justifiable homicide? [See details].
A Texas father beat a man to death. He told police that he discovered the man raping his four year old daughter. The details of the case are spelled out in this article in The Christian Post.
The local Sheriff’s office had originally said no charges would be filed, but the case is now on its way to a grand jury to decide what charges, if any, should be leveled against the father. Society has a legitimate interest in preventing vigilante justice. But in this case, many a father identifies with the dad and feels that what he did was justifiable homicide, not murder or manslaughter. What do you think? Should the father face charges? If so, what charge? Or do you agree with the parents who say they would have likely done the same thing if they were in the young father’s shoes?
