    The kid she was couldn't do anything about the abuse. The adult can, and I wouldn't begrudge anybody the small bit of the hair of the dog they would get from crushing the abuser's face in with an appropriate tool.
    It's funny how we throw out that whole due process, constitution, and law stuff when it's a crime we REALLY don't like.

    I think the guy is gonna get what he's due legally for the assault, a trial anyway. But like somebody else here said, surely he won't be convicted of anything.

    As far as his lawbreaking act, I really don't give too much of a shiit that the Priest got nailed. It wasn't legal, but I think sometimes a person is violated so deeply that he is compelled to use his ability (although not his right) to extract a little more than the law allows. I'm personally okay with that in this case.

    The act of justice is based on legality. Legalities are based on morality. It's a sequence.

    then are we to understand that you recant this assertion, holding morality apart from the law and justice:

    The Priest didn't die, the victim had some satisfaction and will stand trial for his assault, as might the Priest. Due process is not being ignored, nor is the Constitution or the 'law stuff'.

    Yep, all the Priest got was an assault, a temporary hardship. I imagine he'll get over that pretty quickly. If there were any permanent damage, it would only be physical - a sociopath doesn't feel much emotionally.
