    Texas Mom Uses Barbecue Meat Fork to Catch Alleged Child Rapist
    Tuesday, July 17, 2007



    Deshaun Ridge
    "He was well done."

    That's what one woman said Monday after helping her son apprehend an alleged child rapist using her barbecue meat fork.

    "I stuck him in his butt!" Linda Rhodes told MyFOXdfw.com, explaining how she and her son John Jennings apprehended the 17-year-old suspect Friday night in Garland, Texas.

    Click here to watch the video report from MyFOXdfw.com.

    Jennings was barbecuing chicken when he heard a 7-year-old boy calling for help. He said he saw the suspect, Deshaun Ridge, on top of the child, allegedly raping the boy.

    "He stood up, and I just punched him right in the face," Jennings said. "He put his hands up and I grabbed him, and we went fighting."

    Rhodes called police and then jumped into the fight to help her son apprehend the suspect. They held Ridge until police arrived.

    "They were citizens that jumped in, most definitely, and did a good deed," Joe Harn, a spokesman for the Garland Police Department, told MyFOXdfw.com. "These people are heroes."
    Kudos to Mr. Harn for not spewing the usual "don't interfere, let the police handle it" line. I'm all for being a good witness, but things don't get much clearer than this, and the 7-yr old kid needed help.

    Double Kudos to the GG's for saving the kid, and having the presence of mind to grab a weapon.

    Seems like somebody had good and clear quick thinking (GG) to save the day.

    She did real good.

    "I stuck him in his butt!"

    Except that I personally would have selected would have selected a more vulnerable body location to inflict a longer lasting impression.

    Mine can: MI law allows for the use of lethal force to prevent rape (forget wording, might have been "sexual assault). I should check on that. No BBQ fork needed.

    Found it :

    CONTENT House Bill 5143 (H-4) would create the "Dr. Ossian Sweet Self-Defense Act" to do all of the following:

    -- Specify that a person could use deadly force against another individual, without a duty to retreat, if he or she actually and reasonably believed that force was necessary to prevent imminent death, bodily harm, or sexual assault.
    I guess I need to learn the legal definition of sexual assault. At the mall and a really big guy grabs my wife_________(pick a body part)?

    It's a shame that the state of Texas will be spending money on this waste of sperm for jail time instead of a onetime cost of a burial.
