Couple Arrested for Sex Offender Killing Spree Only Created More Victims

Twisted 43

Jeremy MoodyNobody likes sex offenders. It's a simple truth. But a South Carolina husband and wife team charged with killing a sex offender and the criminal's wife aren't exactly heroes either. 

Cops say Jeremy Moody and his wife, Christine, shot and stabbed Charles Parker and his wife, Gretchen, simply because Parker was on the state's sex offender registry. Scarier, still? Moody allegedly planned to go on a spree, killing every sex offender he could find.

I know, it's tempting to do the same. As I mentioned before, no one likes a sex offender, least of all me.

But if you can't see what's wrong with killing Charles Parker, a man who technically was free to go about his life and who wasn't actually doing anything wrong when he was murdered, at least you can see the problem with killing Gretchen Parker. She wasn't a sex offender. She hadn't hurt anyone.

All she did was end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Cops say she was killed only because she was in the house.

Now just imagine the Moodys hadn't been caught, if they'd been able to continue with their alleged plans to travel the state taking out sex offenders, one by one. If they cared so little for Gretchen Parker's life, just imagine how many other innocent victims would have been left in their wake? People who don't carry the stain of having done something horrible to other people.

Vigilante justice sounds like it's heroic. It's been romanticized by countless books and movies.

But the sad truth is, there's nothing heroic about taking lives. At the end of the day, it's still a crime, and it still hurts countless people.

Do you support what the Moodys are accused of doing? Have you ever pondered doing something similar?

Could be that the wife was killed because she knowingly stayed with a sex offender,gilt by association?Frankly I have no issues with sex offenders being put down.I don't give a fuck that he"served his time",he wasscum good riddance

f#ck all of you since there are some people that are wrongly put on these lists simply because someone lies and the "offender:"  can't afford a lawyer. My husband was 15 when his father molested him AND his sister, sister gets po'd years later ten to be exact and my husband , a decent father who never hurt our children and never would , goes to jail and gets a label due to a C&nt face liar who had told me the truth before she made false allegations that it was her brother. SO in conclusion F#ck off till you learn your facts and may you go through the hell that my family did

I think these murderers arenow just on the same level as the sex offender. First of all, the term "sex offender" is given to practically anyone nowadays and it is appalling. For example, 18 year old guys who have a 16/17 year old consensual relationship with their girlfriends are branded sex offenders sometimes. So my point is, its hard to really figure out who is actually a sex offender, meaning, someone who does bad things to little children because the term is defined so loosely. Was this couple going around killing actual pedophiles or just people who got caught up in the system? That is why you don't take the law into your own hands, especially skin heads like these people.

Has it ever occurred to you two that you can get on the S.O. list for peeing in an alley after getting drunk in a bar and some cop see's you? Or some kid who turns 18 and the girlfriend's parents spaz out? or even taking cute pics of their own kids some employee takes the wrong way? Or that some victims arent after all- i.e. Brian Banks accuser? Not everyone on the S.O. list is a child molester or rapist.

I would hope these two who think they were carry out justice looked into the sex offenders list carefully.. some of the men put on that list are some that were 18 and dated and had sex with a girl that was under age 18.. we really have to be careful on what we view when looking into this site.. sometimes its an older man that dated a 16 year old ,even though I feel that is wrong it would not warrent death.. NOW the one's on there for raping or doing other sexual acts on a young child or against some one's will then by all means DEATH to them...

Im not the one killing dumb sex offenders.. Im stating my opinion on an opinion site.. You dont like it... Oh well. For all i know you are married to one!

socal... socalmommy13

Oh amd by the way it lists their charges you tards.. So the skinheads probably read their charges and went to get em.

Of course I don't support what they did. "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind."
the truth is: it's far too easy to get the 'sex offender" label these days...esp. with the proliferation of computers. People can now easily make false accusations against another and get credible details to back up their story. A disgruntled teenager and a computer and there you have it
