James Dipuma arrested, then beat Raymond Robinson who is accused of raping a young boy.
He then allowed one of the victim's family members to beat Robinson while he was in cuffs.

19 year old Raymond Robinson


Anytime the subject of punishing pedophiles is mentioned, most people have very draconian views, on the other hand, we don't pay cops to dole out punishment. Personally I think letting the family member get in a few shots was a nice touch.

What do you think ATSers?

My two sense:
This cop is an idiot.

Now the town or state will get sued and this guy will probably walk. Tax payers will be stuck paying the bill for some cop playing Judge.

And thats a slippery slope that no society should ever go down.
Beating up people *accused* of a crime? No way.

Cops don't get to decide guilt. That's why we have jury's "of our peers".
Even if some totally sick person is actually guilty of the most heinous crimes, cops still don't get to decide if one is guilty. There is zero wiggle room for this.

Yeah I agree with you, but for the record;

The sheriff says that 19-year old Raymond Robison (above) "was engaging in sexual acts with a juvenile" when a family member of the victim walked in a witnessed the rape of the little boy.

I'm surprised we don't hear more about cops letting victims and family members have 5 minutes alone with perps..

I know I would want that 5 minutes and would pay anything to get it.

So as far as I'm concerned.. Good cop... great cop

Yep, and this is something that is being forgotten very quickly. The media, cops, "officials" etc have been deciding who is guilty and who isn't before the accused have their day in court so often that people have become conditioned to think this is how it's supposed to be. Not good times we are in.

Cop shoots a dog, is covered by his partner and the department, no charges.

Cop beats up a rapist, the whole system comes down on him.

God, humanity disgusts me.

Dogs don't get to present their case before a judge and jury. People do. That's the difference.

The cop is reckless and foolish for allowing it.

That said, I applaud his behavior. I would have wanted to put a bullet in the pedo's head.

I know most parents of a child who was raped would like a good hour beat down in a privately locked room. This cop's emotions got the better of him and he made a poor choice. Having restraint should be a priority of all police officers, yet they're still human and still make mistakes. I agree, this cop's good intentions will end up being his down fall. He's sworn to uphold our constitutional rights of not guilty until proven guilty in a court of law. He simply crossed the line and probably will lose his job and cause the city a massive law suit. So in the end, the child rapist gets a monetary reward on his release from prison.

My dad told me something him and his partner did back in the 70s as a Dallas cop. Some dude ran up on the curb and hit a lil girl on a tricycle and drug her a ways as he tried to leave the scene.
He said they caught him, took him to a secluded spot and beat him down pretty good, my dad was a good cop so...

Sure...but seeing the case get tossed on account of the beating doesn't help anything or anyone. Except the accused.

Yeah we don't have cops to be judge,jury, and executioner.

Should have done his job, and let the state dish out 'justice'.

Not going to condemn the guy for what I would have done if it were my child.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe I'm reading comments from Americans.....................

This country has something called due process. A SUSPECT is presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law. That includes alleged child rapists and alleged bombers.

This country is in real trouble when you have mobs of people ready to lynch a person before their right to a day in court. Trust me, even though most of these crimes are heinous and disgusting, you do not wan't a system that does not include due process.

I'm Neo on this one. Not the cops job to dole out justice. If I caught someone in the ACT of molesting a kid or was somehow 100% sure I can see breaking a bat on someone though.

While I don’t really agree with what he did I CAN empathize with him for doing it.

In the past week I have seen at least three threads on cops overstepping two where they unjustly shot someone and none of those circumstances were the cops even fired definitely not arrested. With those cases the department covered up but not this one I just can’t reconcile that in my head.
