    How's it wrong? He protected his daughter in an immediate and decisive fashion.

    I see nothing wrong with the scenario at all.
    Quit being obtuse. I already admitted I hadn't read the article and thought that the beating was done out of anger and revenge, not an accidental death in the middle of stopping a molestation.

    You see that as an apples-to-apples comparison?????

    I had the wrong impression of the story. While I certainly don't think what he did was right in terms of how we deal with criminals, his remorse and the scenario was different from what I had in mind, so I'll change my opinion to wrong but unintended.

    Read the article. Pretty sure that's a good sum up of how the guy feels about it, too. Get over it.

    No they don't. But not all self defense homicides are intentional.

    One man killed another. That is, by definition, homicide. Homicide is not necessarily a criminal offense.

    By my understanding, this guy, the molester, simply couldn't take a punch. Right? I mean, honestly...at MOST, the dad should get charged with assault and battery, TOPS.
