Someone shared this from Mike Huckabee’s facebook page today-

Does “self-defense” extend to defending your children? It does in Texas. Details next…In the town of Shiner, Texas, a 47-year-old ranch worker named Jesus Mora Flores was spotted forcibly carrying the ranch owner’s five-year-old daughter into the woods. Someone told her dad, who rushed to the scene and caught Flores half-naked and holding his screaming little girl down. The dad pulled Flores off and punched him in the head several times before calling 911. The recording of the call showed that he was distraught and hadn’t meant to kill Flores, but he did die from the beating. It sparked a big debate. Some people wanted the dad prosecuted, calling his actions “abominable.” But the town rallied in support. Now, it’s official. A grand jury declined to indict him. They say under the law, deadly force is justified to stop a sexual assault. So if you value your life in Texas, you keep your hands off other people – and their children.

Pardon me, but when did this even become a questionable issue?  Mess with my kid & you can go ahead & call it premeditated.  I won’t NOT mean to kill you. 

End of story.

    There was never a question here in Texas that this dad would not be brought up on charges. He defended his 5 year old daughter. End of story. Were I in the same situation, the toughest thing I would have to explain is how the perp managed to fall and impale his asshole on a tree branch.

    I just want to call one fact here into question:

    The recording of the call showed that he was distraught…

    I’m thinking he was might have “royally pissed off” that someone not only kidnapped, but was in the process of attempting to rape his daughter, but that;s just me.
