We had a case in the news recently in Australia where a man had some friends over for a football game and one of those 'friends' was found molesting his son in his bedroom, by the man, who proceeded to beat the %&(#$*# out of him, in anger and shock no doubt.
The dad had the book thrown at him by a judge who stated that, while paedophiles almost always have to do jail time for committing this type of crime, in this case it was 'extenuating circumstances' because the father committed the crime of severely assaulting him (he needed facial/jaw surgery or something). The paedophile, who admitted he committed this crime, apparently isn't doing any time in jail. For some reason, he has become the victim.
I often wonder how these overly liberal judges sleep at night .....
If he needed to make an example of the father's actions, why couldn't they have both been punished? Seems very odd to me ..
