Do you see the difference between the morals of the situtaion and the legality of the situation?
    My position was on that case, as it is on this one, the man was neither morally, nor legally wrong, when he kicked that priest's ass.

I would understand if the guy did 20 years and has he was walking out of prison and the guy attacked him. But this asshole never had to face justice for his actions. As usual, the church offers the embarrassed parents a large sum of money tp keep their mouths shut.
    Right. But there IS a process we are required BY LAW, to follow. Without laws, there is nothing but chaos.

    I didn't cite any law, except to say that this guy kicked the priest's ass, he stood trial and he was aquitted of any wrong doing. A jury of his peers say he did nothing illegal.

    The trial has not happened yet, so he was not aquitted. Unless we're talking about two different stories...

    http://lvlegalnews.com/high-profile/4025.html

    Will Lynch is looking for justice in an unusual way. Charged with savagely beating the priest he says molested him as a child, he plans to try to use his trial to publicly shame the Rev. Jerold Lindner in court.
    Law experts say he faces an uphill battle. However, priest abuse victims are cheering Lynch on and offering to donate to his defense fund.

    However your comment I quoted seemed to to be implying that if the father did the same to the person in question in this case that it would also be legal.

    Also, there is a difference between an action being "legal" and someone performing that action being found "not guilty". For instance, if someone murders someone what they did was not "legal", however they could be found "not guilty" because of other factors such as temporary insanity. But having a case that rules that doesn't suddenly make murder something that's no longer illegal.

    Good on the girl for standing by her conviction and not cheering for him. And shame on the school

    Point out the law that allows the man to assault the priest. Please provide links.

    Links, please. And Zyph is correct. There is a difference between something being illegal and someone being found not guilty, The latter can occur for lots of reasons.

    apdst... just admit that you were wrong. You cannot prove your position, on this.

    I agree. When the government no longer works for us, I see nothing wrong with taking the law into our own hands.

    Regardless of what you think or want to do, it does not alter the legality of your behavior.
