the father was completely justified in his actions. this man was an intruder on his property who was attacking his daughter. had he used a gun, i don't think anyone would be questioning him at all. but because beating someone to death seems a little excessive, that's why some people feel the need to say two wrongs don't make a right. honestly, who cares. this man was a pedophile, and i don't think anyone is going to mourn his death. especially not those with daughters around that age who very well could have become this monster's next victims. the father had every right to defend his daughter. and i really pray that texas law enforcement does the right thing and doesn't try to prosecute him for defending his child against a predator.
Hope the father is not charged with anything. He did what he needed to do protect his own. Let them heal and move on.
