In a perfect example of Texas-style justice, a young father will not face charges for beating to death the man he caught raping his little daughter.

In June, a 23-year-old father from Lavaca County followed the screams of his five-year-old daughter to a deserted shack where he found a farmhand, Jesus Mora Flores, 47, sexually assaulting his little girl.

The dad proceeded to beat the hell out of Flores with his bare hands, and Flores ultimately died from his injuries, the Daily Mail reported.

Based on forensic evidence proving the girl was sexually assaulted, along with the father’s frantic 911 calls where he actually attempted to save the unconscious Flores, including telling “the dispatcher he’s going to put the man in his truck and drive him to a hospital,” the Lavaca County grand jury chose not to indict the dad on criminal charges, the article said.

The case was turned over to the grand jury because Sheriff Micah Harmon wasn’t “willing to press charges against the father” at the time.

Texas law allows for the use of deadly force in the defense of others, including to stop an “aggravated sexual assault or sexual assault,” the Mail reported.

Neighbors and friends of the family were obviously quite supportive of the father’s actions, as anyone would be.

The difference is that Texas isn’t full of liberal lawmakers who would put a father in jail for life for murdering a pedophile caught with his underwear off raping his child.

Viva Texas.
