Armchair Ethicists JUDGE Texas Man Who Beat Daughter’s ‘Molester’ to Death

Dad Accused of Beating Daughter's 'Molester' to Death Is No Hero | The Stir.

A Shiner, Texas father is the talk of the country for beating to death a man who was sexually assaulting his four year old daughter.

At the Stir, they’re generating hits by discussing what this man should have done, after the fact.

Given the available information, Pharmer would judge the father as neither a hero nor criminal. Paternal instincts took over, and he beat the man whom he observed assaulting his daughter. The ‘pedophile’ died of his injuries.
The Dad has to live with having seen a horrible thing done to his daughter, and with taking the ‘molester’s’ life during the act of stopping the assault.
(Incidentally, if this man had shot the molester once with a gun and killed him, there would not be the endless discussion of how many times he should have been allowed to hit the perp.)
Fortunately Texas law is reasonable with respect to self defense, and is not likely to add further misery to this family’s life.

Updates: The girl’s age has been corrected to five years. More details on the incident are HERE. Further evidence affirms that the girl was being raped.

News that the father will not be tried for murder is HERE, and remarkably the media is restraining itself from identifying the father and daughter in the case, or trying to turn it into a race war.

Found! Obama’s Uncle Omar

PICKET: Obama’s illegal uncle arrested; ‘Uncle Omar’ almost hits cop car, tries to call White House – Washington Times.

Omar Obama Onyango has surfaced due to a brush with police and a DUI charge.    He apparently rolled through a stop sign and turned left, nearly causing collisions .  He also is said to have “nearly rammed” a police car and to have had a breathalyzer test result of 0.14 mg/dl.   The Washington Times article by Kerry Picket corrects other media reports which reported that Mr. Onyango actually collided with the police car.

Opon booking at the police station, ‘Uncle Omar’ was offered the opportunity to make a phone call.  “I think I will call the White House,” was his reply, according to Framington police Lieutenant Delaney.

Uncle Omar, who now calls himself Onyango Obama,  is mentioned in  Obama’s book “Dreams from My Father” as one of the relatives who had emigrated from Kenya to America and was never heard from again. He now faces possible deportation as an illegal immigrant, in addition to DUI charges.

The Australian reports that Auntie Zeituni’s lawyer, Margaret Wong, of Cleveland, will also defend Uncle Omar.

More is available at the Boston Herald, which says that although Uncle Omar is an illegal immigrant,  he has a valid social security number and driver’s license.
