It's amazing that you can justifiably kill a person while they're in the mids of a sexual assault but not during a double homicide?

I guess it's a difference if you kill somebody during a crime - so you, at least partially prevented a crime - Or you kill somebody AFTER the crime - so you did not prevent any crime.

But like stated before, I think this is bullshit. Give the man a medal and a paycheck for doing the right thing.

This actually happened in the 80's in Houston... different circumstances though... 11 year old boy was kidnapped and taken to NOLA... sexually abused etc... found the guy and the boy returned the boy home to parents where dad found out what the guy did to said boy and dad waited at airport for said kidnapper being escorted by officers and shot him in the head on live TV as news cameras rolled. He got convicted of first degree murder and a suspended sentence 5 years probation... Hopefully this is what he gets.

Texas is the greatest state in the Union...

Out of curiosity, what would you guys think of the father revenge killing over his sons if the other driver was not drunk and it was just a freak accident? I assume the father would still be emotionally distraught after the incident, but I am curious if he would still kill the other driver over it due to a temporary bout of grief stricken insanity.

honestly i dont know how I would live my life knowing the person who killed a family member I loved, was still walking this earth happy and free. I'd probably do the same thing. HOWEVER if the driver was not drunk.... I dont know what id do.

i think the father would have shot and killed the kid if he was drunk, sober, texting while driving, falling asleep or getting head.

end result is that his two children were killed by this guy piloting his truck.....

Tragic story. A similar event happened a few months ago here and as far as I know the guy is still awaiting trial. He was sober and reportedly "not paying attention", and sober. Killed 2 kids also, and probably will not serve much time. How has the court system failed so poorly? Talk about a need for reform...
Sorry to hear of this tremendous loss, and the father gets a in my book.

Prosecutor should be ashamed of him/herself. In Texas of all places.

why ??

i think everyone fully understands that what the father did was far from justifiable.

we are not talking about "justified actions" - i am simply asking around if people agreed or disagreed what the father did based on pure passion alone.

so yeah, he wasn't justified for any reason whatsoever, but it looks like more than 75% of people/fathers would have done the same in that sitaution.....

I remember seeing that story a long time ago. Guy was the kids karate instructor IIRC. Guy abducted kid, kid sexually assualted, both found, guy arrested. Father waited in ambush in the airport as perp was being extradited. Pulled out a snubby and blasted a-hole in the right temple point blank. Father was given a slap on the wrist. Seems like justice. Father will have to explain to maker why he did what he did.

I agree. The prosecutor should have given him a small cash reward, and perhaps a civil commendation. He/she should be ashamed.

didnt read most of the responses but imho the drunk driver got off light with a gunshot wound to the head. he definitely should have died before eating another meal but he should have been left to bleed out and understand the consequences of his actions.

father should walk a free man and if he sends any time in jail he should be treated like a king.

two young boys like that are irreplaceable, not just for the family but for the whole community.

I don't know if what he did was justifiable but it was certainly understandable. No way the prosecutor needs to bring the hammer down on this poor man with a murder charge.

there is a good possibility that they will take carry Murder into the court room, but it's only going to make it that much harder to get a conviction.

i'm curious to see how it will all shake out in the end - hopefully dad goes to jail for 5 years and gets probation.

he'll be out in 3 years.....in this small Texas town, they will throw him a hero's welcome.....
