So I came across an article today in the Huffington Post that made me want to cheer for the people in question, but at the same time I saw a large can of worms being opened up based on the nature of the situation.
|Crime in Shriner, Texas- dallaslibrary2.org|
The host and other family members were tending to horses while the young girl went inside the house... the next thing you know, the father went inside to be shocked at what his eyes caught next. The man commenced to punching the guest in his head until he was out cold and eventually dead. Do you blame him? Was that the right thing to do? You would assume a guy or guys with moving van uniforms would be the one to sneak into your home and do some stuff like this, but not an acquaintance that you know and has been around your family before.
The Sherriff's office spoke with CNN and said regarding the father:
"You have a right to defend your daughter," he told CNN. "[The girl's father] 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."
If this was you what would have done? If it becomes ok to defend end up killing with no charges being pressed due to your emotions during the situation... things are sure to change with the justice system sooner or later. Comment below and share your thoughts.
