i just curious, they don't tell you this in the court room, but are jurors aware that even though there may be a video of the act, they can find the defendant innocent?

i'm courious if the deceased was actually guilty? i would have to know a little more about the situation before passing judgment on either. i once knew a person who was accused of molestation but was not guilty at all and had undenyable proof...he was in county jail when the girl said it happened!

without knowing all the facts, i still think the sentence is harsh, yes i'm aware that the deceased will never get his life back, but at the same time, his struggle in life is over, ours continues.

amen to that. This guy was lucky- he died right away; 6 shots to the back of the head plus more. Had he harmed my child- he would for sure be dead; after realizing that the shot to his privates was just the beginning of a very long painful ordeal. And he'd be looking into my eyes at the end. No sneaky unknowing, unaware, shots to the back of the head. The Dad deserves a medal.

is everyone blind here this guy was "accused" what would everyone be sayin if it was later found out that the kid lied....(not saying he did) the problem is in this country you are guilty and must prove your innocence it is supposed to be innocent until found/proven guilty

I like to think that I am a good person and would never take the life of someone, but as a parent I don't know what I would do if someone hurt my child. I might become enraged enough that I would act without really thinking it through.

My main concern here though is that the person was only accused and not yet convicted. I hope (and don't take this the wrong way) that he truly was guilty and that an innocent man didn't lose his life due to false accusations.

I don't know either of these people and I would venture to guess that the severe sentence was based on past history possibly. Regardless, my prayers go out to the little boy who now not only is dealing with being molested but also dealing with basically losing his father.

Thats how the law works....you can rape, molest, even kill! If you are the bad guy that is. But if you are doing what most other parents would do and what most reasonable people know is right then you will spend the rest of your life in jail. If this was a gang related shooting or a robbery gone wrong it would be 7-15 at the most. Since its a father defending his child and taking scum off the streets he will get out when the good part of his life is over. Our justice system is so ass backwards its not even funny. Goes to show you the real criminals are treated better than the rest.

I would say someday you might find out how this man felt if your kids ever got molested. But you probably feel pretty damn good while you touch your kids and other peoples kids huh? He did the right thing and if I were him I'd be proud to be called a murderer under these circumstances. I support what he did and if anyone ever touches my kids they will be hung by their feet and set on fire.

I can't believe the things I am reading on here, let's step up and be civilized here. I agree that people who break the law should be punished, however it is not for individuals to play god when someone wrongs you. Are you people going to get together to kill the next drunk driver that kills one of your kids? I think not, yet they have taken more from you than this guy had taken from him. Yes sex child molesting is a very serious crime, but an avoidable one in most cases. How well do you have to know someone before you let your children alone with them? When a parent does their job of protecting their child it reduces the risk of abuse by other people, however when a parent does not the opposite is true. I find it truly disturbing that anyone would support the killing of someone without a fair trial, and in a situation where part of the blame is on neglectful parents. Shame on all you animals out there with no respect for the laws.
where is your GOD while helpless women and children are raped and killed? are you still waiting for him? in the meantime you rely on the justice system that is tainted by red tape and defense attornies. do you have children?? if so, visualize a man raping him/her. get over your humanitarian bible toting bull**** and graphically visualize the act of your child being RAPED. if you don't have kids stay away from commenting on this subject. you pass the buck onto the parents. you are almost as sick as the rapist. its time to awaken from your slumber. GOD is in us all and his work was done here. pray for the dead rapist he needs you.

Something is wrong with our justice system when a child molester gets no time and a grieving parent gets time for shooting the disgusting bas*ard.
What kind of judge is going to give a parent prison time for this? What is the matter with our society?These animals are raping our children everyday.If they would be executed perhaps they would rethink the act itself.As a taxpayer Im sick and tired of paying for these low life humans in prison.At an estimated 40 grand a year per prisoner. I think the taxpayers should have the right to eliminate which prisoners stay in the system and which ones go.The act of putting a father behind bars for killing the piece of s*hit molestor should be a crime in itself. My language is appropriate for the subject matter, frankly it gets worse.Execution is an alternative method of relief for these children against, sexual predators.Think about how much money this would save our judicial system.

When he gets out of prison, he will be hailed as a hero. His life in prison is already very easy, compared to what a child molester experiences. He's not on easy street by any stretch of anyone's imagination. He's also a hero in prison. He certainly was no candidate for the Father of the year award, but he was just attempting to protect his son, based on the information that he was given, and most of that information was provided by police, who wanted Himrod dead and didn't want to do the work to find evidence that would convict him. For the police, this was the easy way out.

Or maybe it was an absence of God that actually allowed this to happen. The person was probably an atheist and had no one to pray to at the time except the wind and sky.

I am terrified. I recently moved to Corry thinking it was a good town. I got on the national pedophile registry and the map of Corry has so many red dots in such a small area I couldn't even see the street names! That's the the bastards that are REGISTERED! I have a small child and I can tell you that if anyone ever touches him I have a 45 and a shovel. I've seen the Corry PD in action and believe me, outsmarting these morons would be a pleasure. As soon as my house is paid off I'm out of here. As far as this gentleman goes, Hallelujah brother I'll see you in heaven where you'll be judged while that bastard bakes.
