I tend to agree with this statement. Addiction/trait/condition or otherwise, choice is always present. Easier said than done, perhaps. Much like the father had a choice to kill,mame or turn over to cops.
I feel the fathers choice was the natural defence choice as a parent seeing their child in distress, Emotion was the driver here.
Not saying murder is a good thing, far from it.
In the same circumstance as that father, I would more than likely do the same thing....... maybe worse, much much worse.

What you speak of is more compulsion rather than a imbalance chemically in the brain. Most pedos were molested themselves and it is more likely that an active pedo acting out his compulsion thinks the behavior is normal due to being victems themselves.

IF he was attacking a *anyone*, good-riddance. The problem is we have a two-men-can-keep-a-secret-if-one-of-them-are-dead scenario here. Let's hope there is some kind of investigation. I'd hate to think we can just start killing anyone we invite over to the house now, if all that is required to get away with it is an accusation like this....

I say the father was ENTIRELY within his right and did the right thing. I just hope two things......
1. he gets no punishment
2. He didn't bust his hand up too much.

HELL YEAH!!! Flagged and starred... This pervert deserved even worse than that, but the father was in the right to kill him.
EVERY man/woman who sexually abuses children should meet a similar end, so they can NEVER AGAIN sexually abuse any children...

A Texas father caught a man sexually assaulting his 4-year-old daughter and punched him in the head repeatedly, killing him, authorities said. The father was casually acquainted with the alleged abuser, said Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon.
The girl was left inside the family's house during the social gathering, while other members of her family were tending to horses, the sheriff said.
The man was pronounced dead on the scene
Asked whether they would press charges against the father, the sheriff responded, "You have a right to defend your daughter. He acted in defense of his third person.
Well, what do you say/ we say as a Society to this type of activity which lead to additional activtiy by another person that resulted in the loss of life.
Well, for me. GOOD RIDDENCE you sick bas...d! One thing for sure. That sicko won't be preying on any other innocent vicitms. Regardless if this was the first or last one.
That is my whole issue- the pedo's have no fear of the law or punishment. Rather Not Enough to make them stop doing that sicko behavior.
So, solution. Let the families of the victims have first choice as to how to deal Justice..... If they can't or won't then the Gov't can finish it.
I am a strong supporter of Chemical Castration.... Go ahead, start bashing that....
Anyway, WAY TO GO DAD!!!
