If I knew some family friends had been sexually abused I would lose it. I dont think Id have the time to stop and think about branding him though. Pretty sure the only stop Im making is the garage to grab my bat.
Yeah, I would definitely lose it if this was happening to my loved one's, but at the same time, our justice system is such that it is unbiased and nonvengeful so that it can be fair. Logically, these guys did the right thing. Morally, not so much. But legally, definitely not. Unless you're overthrowing an illegitimate government, citizens shouldn't take the law in their hands.

I do. I've been on jury duty a time or two, and I was shocked to see how many people have "bleeding hearts" for these criminals. And in this case, the criminal I'm talking about is the sodomizer.
If this would happen to somebody from my family, I'd lose it as well. And reading this story, I have no doubt the uncle is guilty as hell, so I can perfectly understand these 3 guys.
I'll never have a 'bleeding heart' for a sodomizer. But just think, for one second, if this would happen to somebody who turns out to be innocent? What if some 'weeping mother' decides to make up a story? Then you would have attacked/branded/crucified an innocent person. Well, that would suck big time.
So in every case, taking the law into your own hands is wrong. Still, in a lot of cases it's perfectly understandible, and given the situation I'm sure I would do the exact same thing.

Wow, what a heinous case all around. This struck me as very odd
Williams, who admitted throwing Gibson on the sidewalk, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault. Already serving alife sentence for murder in an unrelated case, Williams, 21, faces a year in prison for the assault.
if the guy is serving a life sentence what's he doing out of jail? some other facts I found odd were the guy who did the burning got 18 months, and the guy who held him down got 19 months.
and this . . .
In June 2001, Gibson, 38, pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct for the attacks on his nephews and was ordered to serve an 8- to 40-year prison term.
What's up with this court system?
