this is a true tale of parents taking the law into their own hands, investigators say a mother and father kidnapped a man they think molested their daughter. Now, the parents themselves may face jail time.
Authorities say they have reason to believe the man is a child molester who has gone after at least five girls, including this one daughter. However, they say the law is the law, and parents are not allowed to kidnap anyone anyone at gun point. even if all they did was take the guy to a local church so he could confess to the pastor.

So when is it ok to take the law into your own hands? If the answer is not never, what is the point of having laws?

If I was on the jury, I would not find the parents guilty. I would hope that other jurors would do the same. I think the parents were too easy on the guy. I doubt I would have been able to show the same restraint.

What if the parents killed or really injured the man and they were WRONG.

No evidence? No justice. I would certainly take my children's word as proper evidence.
In any case the real abusers of children operate on a grand scale within our own government they are the top dogs and they control the law.
