Let this be a warning to criminals in the Lone Star State. We don’t even need guns to defend our families. But we do have guns. Lots of them.

A Texas father will not face murder charges for killing a man with his own bare hands after he discovered the suspect raping his 5-year-old daughter in a remote barn.

A Lavaca County grand jury decided not to charge the 23-year-old father, whose name was withheld, in the June 9 death of Jesus Mora Flores, 47, citing Texas state law where deadly force is authorized and justified in order to stop an aggravated sexual assault, the Daily Mail reported.

The jury also cut him a break for the 911 calls he made immediately after the attack.

Sheriff Micah Harmon said in June that he was not willing to press charges against the father, and rather the case would be presented to a grand jury.

The man did what any father would, or ought, to do. He rained down fists on the rapist until he was dead. His neighbors support him.

Residents of the small town largely supported the father through his legal troubles.

“[Flores] got what he deserved, big time,” Sonny Jaehne told the Victoria Advocate.

“I would probably do worse,” said friend Mark Harabis. “The family will have to deal with that the rest of their lives, no matter what happens to the father. Even if they let him go, he and his child will have to deal with that the rest of their lives.”

If there was ever an instance of the classic "He needed killin'" defense, this is it.

TEXAS - Possibly the last bastion of liberty, freedom and common sense; I may move my family there soon....

Remember BENGHAZI!

I may join you as my beloved Virginia fades from Red to Purple to Blue. If Terry McAuliffe becomes Governor this year, and Cuccinelli may have made that possible through his intransigence, it may well become time to look for a new state.

VA voted for Obama. Twice. Has two democrat Senators. And my district has Eric Cantor.

There well be nothing left for me here.

Sane news, but heed this: I fear we aren't at the end of this family's ordeal.

Indeed. Watch out for Eric "Stinkfist" Holder to decide that the civil "rights" of the child rapist were somehow (ahem) violated.

A paycheck says the POS was another illegal alien just wanting to work.


The Father should have place the pervs head on a pike, and loaded it to YouTube.

Good on the dad.

Was this Jesus Mora Flores another of those precious little snowflakes living in the shadows just dying to be given legal status?

Will we ever know or hear what Flores' immigration status was?

And Texans won't have to house and feed this scumbag.

Oh, and thanks Supreme Court for forbidding the states to execute these worst of the worst (where's that sarcasm font?)
