Those of you NOT from Massachusetts won't freaking believe this one. Anyone FROM Mass will say "yeah....that's about right."

Good grief. What's in the water out there, Rob, other than massive amounts of chloro-stupidity?

Crime is crime, no matter what your motivation. Groping is a horrible crime, and he should go to jail. Taking the law into your own hands is also not right, and I'd be afraid to live in a society where anyone can do anything as long as they're "angry."

I'm with Andy, though I'm not sure I could voice my view as eloquently as he.

True Andy. We must NEVER circumvent the law. However, I think there ought to be accommodation for the Dad reacting as he did.

What really got me about the story was this:

Quote:
Rodriguez...told police he was wrong for touching the boy and “only fooling around.”

...police decided not to arrest the suspect at the scene due to his advanced aged (BOO-FUCKING-HOO!) and lack of a criminal record.


GRRRRRRR!

That reminds me of Debra LaFave who was too pretty to go to jail.

I don't agree, Rob. I have to question the dad's motives.

My personal belief is that the desire for revenge is the most counter-productive and negative of all human emotions. Enacting revenge does nothing more than perpetuate abuse. A father's first responsibility should be to protect and shelter his son, and that does not involve assaulting the perp.

I think the kid seeing the dad beat the pulp out of a guy and seeing that rage was maybe more harmful to his little psyche than a one-time grope under the stall....

I know it would've been for me, as a kid...

I'm not defending the groper, of course, just think both parties were wrong...
