    I'd have shot him. Flat out. Thank goodness I live in Colorado.

    As an aside, he doesn't have to be armed to present a deadly threat. You don't have to let him walk up and take your gun away... and if you perform a citizens arrest you can use reasonable force to detain him.

    Thanks for posting on this story. I'm in agreement with others that the father showed great restraint. Hopefully the bad guy will do many years in prison.

    Good story! Thank God it came out the way it did and not the way they usually do!

    He showed more restraint than I could have. I could not have resisted rehabilitating him.

    I could have driven him to the county jail MYSELF in 35 minutes. Of course he probably would have needed the hospital instead... ... ... :)

    I could drive him to the county jail in about 15 minutes; of course, since I would tie his wrists to the rear bumper of my car, he may not be in great shape when we arrived...

    If he went face down without resisting or making any further move toward my child, he might make it to the ground unharmed, spreadeagled, hands clearly visible. Once child was safely out of way we might have a 34 minute chat about the flaws of the criminal justice system and felons doing little or no time. He'd either decide he was better off resisting or loose control of bladder and bowel.

    Kinda reminds me of that joke/story I think that was posted, where they guy had a guy going through his shed and the cops said that there was no one around, so he called again and said that he shot the bad guy and the cops were there in no time. I'm not sure if thats the best course of action either, you don't want the cops coming tackling you then.

    Good for the dad though. He might have had a few more bruises from me.

    I'm not sure I could have restrained myself as well as this father did. At the very least, I think this guy would have had a concussion by the time the cops got there.

    Glad this scum will be in prison for the next 30 years though.

    These kind of perverts can't be cured . They go to jail and are right out to do it again. I would not want to be the one to shoot this scum bag but if any one else did and I was on the jury the shooter would get my not guilty vote. That why this castle doctrion is needed.

    I think this should be a crime that carries the death penalty or at least a lifetime in jail with no chance of getting our ever.

    You said a mouthful Tom. I agree. In fact, I might go a step further and say, as a Father of 5, I would like to see an automatic death penalty in cases of child molestation, child abduction or murder of a child.

    I agree that these scum can not be cured or rehabilitated. They are defective and it is far better for all of us in society to just remove them for good from the Earth.

    You do not try to rehabilitate a dog that has snapped and attacks everything it can, you put it down for the greater protection of everyone else. Same principal.

    That guy really displayed extraordinary and commendable restraint.

    I'm not so sure I would have.

    I would not have killed him,but I would have shot him where he could not molest anyone ever again.
