    Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    David Barajas Faces Trial for Serving His Own Justice | Parent Society

    Keep it clean so it doesn't go to the cave but I was wondering what people on here would have done?

    I for one do not fault him for what happened b/c I couldn't imagine that happening to my two boys but the law is the law and this isn't an eye for an eye society anymore.

    I don't like to contemplate such things, as I have no idea what I would do in a similar situation.

    Re: Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    I can't imagine, but if I had a method to kill the person who just killed my daughter and stepson, I would probably utilize it.

    I would think temporary insanity would have to apply here, wouldn't it?

    Re: Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    The "right" answer is that he was in the wrong, he should have let the legal system take care of it.

    ...But. If I had watched some drunk jerk (who was underage, to boot) kill my children in front of me? I don't know that I would have done anything different. Drunk driving sickens me more than almost anything else, you're putting everyone else's families in your hands every time you do it.

    Has anyone seen "Gone Baby Gone"? SPOILER: There's a scene where Casey Affleck kills a child molester, and I think he did the right thing.

    Re: Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    Hard to fault him, especially in the moment. You see your two boys get killed or severely injured and no doubt rage is going to come. Is what he did justified? I dont see a problem with it, but yes there is a law.

    But I for one think that happening over the man rotting in jail for 40 years wasting tax dollars is a better outcome.

    You can't blame the man, I guess - but what now for the rest of his family?

    I would like to think I would not have killed the man. Forgiveness is hard.

    He shot him at the scene of the accident? Yeah I don't think you can do that. Probably felt good at the time, but murder is murder.

    Re: Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    Did he know the driver was drunk? Would he have shot him if he wasn't?

    I can empathize, but he obviously belongs in jail.

    Re: Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    I think I would have him live with the guilt. Drunk drivers who end up killing folks tend to live with tremendous guilt, some even commit suicide over it. I would have a heavy dose of hate in my heart Im sure but wouldnt kill him. If he would have raped and/or murdered my children then yes. He would be suffering a slow death at my hand. If that makes sense. I know drunk driving is basically murder, but its not premeditated or malicious. It was a stupid choice, a stupid stupid selfish choice.

    It's usually not hard to tell if someone is drunk.

    I agree with everything you said here Angie except for what I bolded. To me, when I see some 85 year old behind the wheel driving 40 miles an hour in the left lane on the interstate, drunk driving laws seem silly to me. What I am getting at is, if you are saying .08 is impaired for me, then you'd better start setting the bar allot higher for obtaining a license in the first place.

    Re: Father Kills Man Who Killed His Kids

    To me, it depends on how obvious it was at the scene that driver in fact drunk and not suffering from some medical condition.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    True, but you're making an assumption that he was drunk enough to be visibly impaired. .08 BAC is also considered "drunk driving" and you would not be able to tell just by looking at a person.
