The company you keep

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

    This father/HERO not only saved his daughters life, but the lives of other girls that his monster would have molested in the future.

    And yes, Unc. James Harrington is a complete and total fool!

  2. John Smith. Says:

    I have to say I am impressed with Harrington.. Not too many people have the nerve to say they are Pro Child Rapist… Takes balls to do that in Texas..

  3. Stormy Dragon Says:

    Just out of curiousity, is there any evidence beyond the father’s word that the molestation actually happened?

  4. SayUncle Says:

    Not sure but if the police let him go, I’m guessing they had something other than his word. But I recall reading the girl went to the hospital.

  5. Stormy Dragon Says:

    But I recall reading the girl went to the hospital.

    For an examination, not because she was injured. And it doesn’t say if the examination turned up anything. Although a failure to turn up anything wouldn’t rule out molestation; it’d just be nice to have some physical evidence or a second eye witness.

  6. SayUncle Says:

    a second eye witness

    The girl?

  7. Stormy Dragon Says:

    The girl?

    Yes, although hopefully she was interviewed right away, rather than days later. A four-year old’s memory is rather malleable.

  8. Stormy Dragon Says:

    Hmmm, the story you point to says the incident happened near one of the barns, where as this one says it occured inside the house:

    Hopefully the CNN version is correct, as that make the father’s story a lot more credible to me–the horse groomer dying in the house where he had no reason to be is a lot more significant than him dying near the barn where you’d expect to find him.

  9. Stormy Dragon Says:

    The other question to me is what exactly is mean by “beat to death”. Did the father hit him in the head a couple of times and got lucky, or did this guy look like Kelly Thomas?

  10. StanInTexas Says:

    Stormy, neither of those places does anything to diminish the severity of the crime.

    Grown males that molest children rarely do it openly or in front of witnesses, so that request is most likely not possible. Also, the barn story is very credible as well, as the male could have enticed her in to “look at the horses” and attacked her.

    I’m not sure if you are a lawyer or just playing ‘devil’s advocate’, but you seem to me to be working hard to make the father out to be a criminal.

  11. TomcatTCH Says:

    Expecting CNN to get a story right is a kind of wishful thinking isn’t it?

  12. Stormy Dragon Says:

    @StanInTexas

    The problem is you’re presuming he was a molester. Whether or not that is true is part of what needs to be determined, and it’s a decision I’d like to make on the basis of more than the word of the man responsible for killing him. I’m more likely to believe the father if the death occured in the house, because the fact he was in there at all suggests he was up to something. Conversely, the fact a horse groomer was in the barn doesn’t suggest anything one way or the other.

  13. workinwifdakids Says:

    It says he “struck him several times.” To me, several means three, though it’s open to interpretation. If he punched the guy less than a dozen times, there isn’t a jury in the country who’d convict, and the guy probably didn’t even mean to kill him.

  14. workinwifdakids Says:

    And a 4-year-old’s memory is “rather malleable?” Yeah, I’d say so. Ask an 8-year-old sometime how long summer is. It’s an eye opener.

  15. Jake Says:

    There may be other witnesses that saw as much as the father did. From an earlier story:

    The group later heard the girl screaming behind the barn, Harmon said. Her father ran to see what was wrong and said he saw the man allegedly sexually assaulting the child. While pulling the man away from the girl, he hit the man several times in the head, Harmon said.

    So, CNN says it was in the house, but Fox and a local news source (I think that’s supposed to be the Houston Chronicle’s website, but everything is just “chron.com”) are saying it was behind the barn.

    You’ve gotta love the MSM and their “investigative” journalism.

  16. Jerry Says:

    I’ll say it this way. I don’t support the fact that a person did not get a fair trial. But, on the other hand, use your imagination. I just caught someone rape/molesting my child. What am I ‘gonna do? I ain’t Jesus.

    If justice were served in this fashion a little more often, I’ll bet crime might just be reduced. Hmmm ?
