Parents Take The Law Into Their Own Hands

This story caught my eye. Two excerpts here:

- A Texas father caught a man sexually assaulting his 4-year-old daughter and punched him in the head repeatedly, killing him, authorities said.

Asked whether they would press charges against the father, the sheriff responded, "You have a right to defend your daughter. He acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him."
Harmon described the dad as "very remorseful," adding that he didn't know the man was going to die.
Follow that up with this video

In concept we aren't supposed to take the law into our own hands but when you involve children and heinous crimes things can change dramatically.
