While most parents were seen looking skyward or burying their faces in their hands in horror, Randall kept a stern gaze fixed on Nasser, with his face fixed in an expression of deep set hate.
After his daughters finished speaking, Randall addressed the judge, saying: “I would ask you, as part of the sentencing to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon.
“Would you give me one minute?”
When Randall Margraves' plea for time alone with Nasser was rejected, he chose to ignore the judge's decision.
In a fit of rage, the furious father leapt over a podium and charged at Nassar with a raised fist.
He was immediately shielded by his defence attorney, with another guard practically leaping over the medic to block Randall's strike on him.
Within seconds, he was brought to the ground by multiple guards and handcuffed.
As he lay pinned face-down, he shouted out: "I want that son of a bitch".

Man, I feel for this dad. As much as we love to hate Nassar, there are a lot more players in this. Some of these kids told their parents, and the parents didn't believe them. Some of the gymnast reported it for years! Yes years. I know a lot of people are sick of the "me too" movement, but can't you see how this stuff just gets swept under the rug.
There are many times things were said, Bill Cosby was taken to court decades before it broke on the mainstream. Corey Feldman talked about abuse since he was a teen and nobody believe him, not the police, nobody. Many more stories like this. Why does it take mob action before people start believing this kind of abuse? I think we all need to start being better listeners! Right now we are hearing from a lot of women, but there are a lot of boys that have also been abused.

He did exactly what most caring fathers would have done... It would have taken more than those two to stop me, especially if I got my arms around that guy's neck and saw red.
