Father Who Beat 5-Year-Old Daughter's Rapist to Death Will Go Free, Because He Deserves To

This Just In 126

shed

Last year, a father was alerted that a farm worker was seen forcibly dragging his 5-year-old daughter into a remote shed on his Texas farm. The father did what most of us would do -- he ran to the location and stopped the man from finishing his horrible crime by beating him in the head and neck with his bare hands. This week prosecutors decided that this unidentified dad will not be charged with any crime, based on a law that says it's okay to use deadly force in order to stop a sexual assault. Hooray for that law. Other states should consider adopting it.

It's a shame that anyone had to die, but you know what, it's a shame that a child was raped. It's a shame that she's going to need lots of therapy to get over it. It's a shame that the family of the girl had to go through something as horrific as this. So not gonna lose too much sleep over that one.

When the crime first happened in June of last year, overwhelming support for the 23-year-old father's actions, both from townspeople and people in law enforcement.

Perhaps the one mitigating factor that led to his not being charged was what the father did afterward. After the initial shock and fight response of seeing 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores with his pants down and attacking his little baby, he did call 9-1-1 and say the man needed a hospital. He had no intention of killing anyone that day. He was just being a parent.

Unfortunately, the rapist did not survive his injuries. And the world is probably a better place. Case closed.

Could you imagine if he court had actually sent this dad to jail for trying to protect his child? What kind of world would that be?!!

I am so relieved for this father and his family. Bad enough to deal with what happened to the daughter- then the stress of a trial!?! It will forever weigh on his conscience- but he did his best at the time.

I think that whoever decided to bring this man to trial overstepped his bounds.

I think you meant fortunately the rapist did not survive his injuries. Any pedophile should be tortured then killed. No excuses.

Taking this to trial was a waste of tax payers dollars.

"It's a shame anyone had to die"?? No, it's a blessing that man is dead.

I would never want to lightly say that anyone should take another person's life but if I was looking for a perfect example of when it is absolutely acceptable and necessary - this would be it.

clappingWay to go, not only to the state of Texas but to a great dad! I am glad that poor little girl does not have to testify and relive that over for a court hearing. I'm sure that she will get all the help she needs with the support of her family.

A grand jury decided not to charge him with a crime, that very different then a jury deciding that this unidentified dad was not guilty of any crime. It went to the grand jury as a matter of protocol because the sheriff was unwilling to charge him with a crime.

I'm glad the father isn't facing charges. I would not say it's "unfortunate" or a "shame" that some lowlife baby rapist is dead.
