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

William Meacham, rapist, and neighbor beater upper

One might think that after spending four years in jail for raping a 15 year old girl, William Meacham might have tried to be low key and stay out of trouble. Instead Meacham, his two brothers, two sisters and a friend decided that the best way to deal with neighbors concerned about this sexual predator being in their neighborhood was to beat one of them up.

Police say William Meacham, his two brothers, two sisters and a friend attacked Adrian Porter in the village of Seneca Falls last month, leaving him bleeding and unconscious in the complex's parking lot with brain trauma, a broken nose and facial fractures.

They claim the victim came at them first, because that's believable- a single man going after a gang of six. And, evidently between the fliers Porter was hanging to warn residents of the sexual predator, the clan claims he had a machete. Honestly, dealing with this bunch- it might have been wise if he'd have had one. Perhaps then he could have at least attempted to defend himself against these animals.
