47-year-old Jesus Flores was beaten to death by an enraged father. Not many would blame the father, whose five-year-old-daughter was being raped by the man he killed!
People understanding a father’s need to punish a monster who commits such a heinous crime is one thing but the Law would see it differently see it differently. In a court’s eye, a murder is a murder.
Fortunately not so in Texas!
Under the law in Texas deadly force is authorized and even justified in order to stop a sexual assault. Also, the courts took into consideration, the fact that the man tried calling 911 to help the man he had attacked. The 911 records show the dad frantically guiding the dispatchers to his place and even telling the dispatcher that he's going to put the man in his truck and drive him to a hospital.
Well, that is good news, the best we’ve had in a long time really! But it’s not the only one!
27- year-old Richard Thomas broke into a woman’s home in Manchester in the middle of the night and raped her.
When arrested, he said he had been drinking heavily and had taken cocaine and ecstasy as well. He did not remember what happened that night. But he is very unlikely to forget its aftermath anytime soon!
He is being served a strict blow by fate. He may very possibly have gotten HIV from his victim!
He would not find out the result of his HIV test until Friday and the time till then we are sure will hang over his head more cruelly than a death sentence!
He has more of a price to pay, as he will have to stay away from his partner and their daughter now, not to mention the two daughters he has from previous relationships! To top it all off, his immediate family wants nothing to do with him!
