Grand Jury to Get Case of Texas Dad Who Beat Alleged Child Molester to Death

A Texas prosecutor said the case of a rancher who beat to death a man he caught allegedly molesting his daughter will go to a grand jury to decide whether the killing was justified, or an act of excessive force.

The father, whose name has not been released by authorities, claims he caught the man trying to molest his 4-year-old daughter on his ranch Saturday. Although Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said the girl’s father is unlikely to be arrested, District Attorney Heather McMinn told the case remains under investigation and that the Texas Rangers have joined the probe.

“Once completed, [results of the investigation] will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office and it will be taken to a grand jury,” McMinn told “They’re still investigating what happened at this point.”

The grand jury will ultimately decide what charges — if any — the girl’s father will face, McMinn said.

    The more molesters get beat to death the safer your children are.

  2. DelA says:

    I think the pervert got what he deserved.  At least we wont have to support him in prison for the next ten years.  The silly courts would only give him a slap on the wrist and let him out in a year or two to molest somebody else’s child.

  3. Arnothm says:

    I don’t think he intended to kill him but the sob was so soft and the ranchers hands were so hard that it just happened that this sob could not take a mall to his head and live, I think it was his fault for dying not the rancher for being a hard worker.

    Attention all Pedophiles:  We do not allow child molestors in Texas. And we mean that!

    Can you say witch hint?????
    The man should be tried, fined a dollar and then given a medal. 
    If more fathers were allowed to extract justice from these perverts directly they might get the message and go away

    • curt says:

      He shouldnt be tried,fined or any other thing. He has been through enough seeing what he did. He should be patted on the back and commended for his actions.

    This is what should happen to every child molester and rapist!If they go to court as the bleeding hearts want,then they get a few years in prison ,parole and back on the street to do it again only next time they are more likely to kill the victem.Can anyone name Me one of these types that get rehabilitated?Most get out and do it again.I say execute all of them!!!

  7. JunkmailBin says:

    HE WILL most likely get the Texas State medal for Heroism and support of law enforcement, beside a big thanks for saving the state money for legal expenses

  8. I say, good for him. Given similar situation, I would do the same as would any other father who isn’t a pizzant wimp. Ooops, seems I hit him once too many times.
    IF this case does get prosecuted, unless they stack the jury with child molesters, there is a VERY slim chance for a conviction by any jurist who has kids. They shouldn’t even waste the taxpayer’s money trying to push this in Texas, it will not result in a conviction.

    Click the name

    As a father I would say he used very good restrain and only used to tools at hand.   If he had used an AX
    I might say excessive force.  But all he used was what GOD gave him in defense of his daughter.  I think
    that was remarkiabel restrain on his part.  

  10. jerry1944 says:

    Geee even Texas is going to waste money on a grand jury.  the man got less than he deserved he should have been torched before he died and the state is going to waste money.    whats the would comeing to if Texas is doing  like  that lib   fla

  11. copakeman says:

    where is eric holder ? we need him to protect child molesters and other pedofiles. who does that father think he is is, killing a fellow human that was just trying to rape his 4 year old daughter.

    • diencaedau says:

      The perp needs to die. Turn them over to the parents for justice and if someone is still a bleeding heart and feels sorry for the perp, let the general public handel it. Bet lots of this crap will stop,quickly.

    In America, it’s a crime to protect your family…

      Raymond you Sir are a patriot what we need as a nation is to “stop”reformimg every thing ad restore all that was and is right with the greatness of America and her God fearing people Thank you

    What has America become?

    Has America become the land of special interest and home of the
    double standard?  Let’s see: If we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony
    and if Congress lies to us it’s just politics. If we dislike a black person,
    we’re a racist and if a black dislikes whites, it’s their 1st Amendment
    right.  The government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and
    they do almost nothing for the victims.  In public schools you can teach 
    that homosexuality and lesbianism is ok, but you better not use the
    word God in the process.  You can murder a child in the mothers womb,
    but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer. We don’t burn books in
    America, we now rewrite them.  We got rid of the communist & socialist
    threat by renaming them progressives. If you protest against Obama’s 
    policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burn an American flag or George 
    Bush in effigy, it’s your 1st Amendment right. 

    You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not 
    put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas.  In America,
    criminals are now called sick people.  The government takes money
    from those who work hard & gives it to those who are lazy. Parenting
    has been replaced with Ritalin & video games.  The land of opportunity 
    is now the land of hand outs.  

    And how do we handle a major crisis today?  The Government 
    appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens
    them, passes a law, raises our taxes, then tells us the problem is
    solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

    Can you imagine the innocence of a 4 year old girl whose life revolves around baby dolls, stuffed bunnies, sidewalk chalk and the color pink –broken by this pedophile. Hell, I’m a mom and if I caught someone molesting my daughter 4 years old or 24 years old, I’d beat him to death too.

  15. curt says:

     This guy will get the death penalty . The article said they think the guy was from Mexico. This will become a hate crime for sure. I dont bllame the father at all I probably would have done the same.

    • Lisa says:

      I am not so sure that this could ever become a “hate crime,” since the “man” was caught in the act and the father immediately took action against this perp.  Therefore, there is no premeditation that could possibly have been involved.  THIS…WAS JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE.
