There are but a few instances in which the death penalty and violence can be used without a modicum of reservation. For example, in my opinion, those punishments should be used against animal abusers, child molesters and rapists.
I would like to add people who say “supposively” and “give it 120 percent,” but we’ll just limit it to the more heinous acts.
Although this story is scant on details, local news outlets in South Carolina are reporting that a man prevented his girlfriend from further rape at the hands of his uncle when he beat the living hell out of his uncle.
CONWAY, S.C. (PIX11) — A man in South Carolina accused of raping his nephew’s girlfriend Thursday was brutally beaten by his nephew before the police even arrived.
WIS reported that Conway Police found the mangled 52-year-old William Mattson at the Highway 905 residence around 12:57 a.m. after the assault.
His mugshot clearly shows what happened when the victim’s boyfriend, who is also the suspect’s nephew, found him raping the girl.
The nephew apparently found the suspect in a bedroom on top of his girlfriend. Police say the boyfriend then started striking the suspect with his fist and drove him from the house to the front lawn, according to myrtlebeachonline.com.
Police say the boyfriend was “acting in defense for the victim.” He has not been charged.
Mattson was charged with criminal conduct and taken to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
