True Crime General Anonymous 06/19/2020 (Fri) 21:55:28 No. 1242
There's a lot to explore on this topic in general so I think a thread on true crime is kind of overdue. I just read about this case today, where a middle school employee (worked with 'troubled' children apparently, so the claim that he has seen too many abused/raped kids to ignore it seems legit), killed a sex offender and turned himself in. Also appears like the sex offender def had bait for kids with those playhouses and stuff on his property. What are your thoughts on this kind of vigilantism? On one hand, I can't say I really disagree with it in this case, but on the other hand, I feel like men are always itching to kill and search for any excuse to do it, so I'm skeptical of male vigilantism in general. https://www.omaha.com/news/crime/ex-wife-omaha-man-arrested-in-killing-of-registered-sex-offender-fearful-man-would-offend/article_ca281537-18e6-5e9f-8bd6-3cee4499b939.html
And has anyone been keeping up with the Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell case? What the fuck
I don’t know what to think. I can see the rationale when it’s a child molester, but I’m not a fan of murder no matter what.
>>1253 I think in this case it was kind of legit, but the problem is that men are too stupid to be able to dole out vigilante justice in general, on top of the fact that they lie and will use any excuse to be violent.
Good riddance. Pedos should be shot on sight. I'd have done the same.
>>1255 He did an interview and I can't say I blame him. Some people saying the state may grant him some leniency. It looks like he raped or molested his own daughter and she is supporting Fairbanks, saying she wished she could've done it herself but couldn't because she had a family she had to be there for. A lot of people are supporting this, thankfully. Very interesting interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbrdq5XacJc My only concern is that a lot of, particularly conservative men, claim they are violent in the name of combating pedophilia, but it's really Infowars conspiracy pieces that seek to demonize center/center left politicians.
>>1282 I dunno. When I read the OP I assumed that he had gone and taken out an active abuser of one of the kids he was dealing with. I could have gotten behind that 100%, if you're dealing with a child who's suffering abuse I could totally see that you'd go nuts trying to just help the kid to live with their problems when you could just remove the fucking problem and let that kid have a life. Sounds like that's not what happened though, he just looked the guy up on the internet and knocked his door with a gun in his pocket. In this case no harm done I think, listening to his daughter speak I don't have a shred of sympathy for this nonce but I can't on principle condone just calling in on total strangers to murder them for past crimes without knowing the context of who they are now. So yeah, positive result here, but I do think the guy should do time because we can't just declare open season on anyone who's been doxed and dragged online. I get that this guy was an actual pedo but that is actually illegal and what we need there is a more effective criminal justice system, not mob rule.
>>1284 I agree with you. Luckily, I think this is an instance where he did happen to be right and there's not really harm done, but the potential for it to be so, so wrong is totally there, and it concerns me. If people are so concerned, they really should be advocating for law and safeguards/overhaul of the system meant to protect children, but no, they routinely fight to defund children's services and repeal protections. I'm glad people are supporting him being that it seems pretty likely that he was going to offend again, but I just worry about copycat cases like you say, someone just assuming with no proof, etc.

The case of Robert Maudsley is just sad he was a poor man who had endured sexual and physical abuse as a child, when he was an adult he killed a man who had a large collection of child pornography, he was placed in prison and killed 3 other men, a serial child molester, a man who had raped a 7 year old girl and a man who had beaten his wife to death he has been placed in solitary confinement for over 40 years now
>>1582 that really is so sad. he seems to seriously only have murdered people that deserved it, after a life of nothing but suffering, and it seems like they genuinely were the real deal - truly shit people. he did nothing wrong.
>>1583 his victims >John Farrell, age 30, on 14 March 1974.(the one with child pornography) >David Francis, age 26, on 26 February 1977. Francis was a convicted child molester, . >Salney Darwood, age 46, on 29 July 1978. At the time of his death, Darwood was serving life for the manslaughter of his wife Blanche. >William Roberts, age 56, on 29 July 1978. At the time of his death, Roberts was serving 7 years for sexual assault of a seven-year-old girl. so he didn't randomly kill just anyone, the bastards he killed all deserved it but the media painted him as this deranged irrational psycho killer, its a fucking Joke
>>1586 I would bet money that pedophiles in power were scared of him and paid to influence the media. If these facts were widely known, most people would side with him.
>>1582 >In March 2000, Maudsley unsuccessfully pleaded for the terms of his solitary confinement be relaxed, or to be allowed to commit suicide via a cyanide capsule. >He also asked for a pet budgie, which was also denied. >In 2010, the Daily Mirror reported that Maudsley made a plea to be able to play board games with prison staff to relieve his boredom. They won't even let him have bare minimum entertainment, poor man, I don't think he should be let out but damn let him have his bird. Apparently his cell guards seem to like him and be friendly with him enough to even want to play games which is a bit uplifting, personally I would have no issue with playing some checkers with the guy that only kills wife beaters and kiddy diddlers.
>>1582 A hero
