The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Eye for an eye... or in this case

The unnamed 32 year old man was clearly distraught after his unnamed 18 year old stepson raped the man's 8 year old daughter. And, no one can hold that against him. Of course, the mother of the stepson and daughter evidently didn't feel the same rage as the man, because despite the man's warnings not to bail out the little rapist- she did anyhow.

You just have to know this story isn't going to improve for this family in any way shape or form right now.

Here's the lead up:

The stepson was arrested Jan. 2 and charged with suspicion of aggravated sexual assault. Police say the father caught him assaulting his daughter, and a subsequent examination at a hospital revealed the girl had been sodomized.

The mother then bailed the son out. The step son, upon gaining his freedom made the horrible choice to call home, although instead of reaching his bleeding heart mother, the phone was answered by his understandably angry and emotionally overwhelmed step father, who agreed to pick him up.

Instead of taking the teenager home, the Arlington man drove to an abandoned house in Fort Worth, beat his stepson with a baseball bat and sodomized him with a metal tool, police said.

After the man left, the stepson found a pay phone and called police, who searched the abandoned home.

"We did find evidence at the scene to corroborate our victim's story," Johnson said.
