Something that is hard wired into our brains
You've all heard that sad story from Texas by now I'm sure.
The one where a young father found a man raping his five year old daughter and beat him to death.
And unsurprisingly a Grand Jury has found that his actions were entirely justifiable.
Most us us can put ourselves in the place of the man who killed the rapist - the man who was hurting his child.
Our blood boils at the thought of what that man did to this little girl.
It is inbuilt in most of us to want to protect children and to protect them from those who have something so entirely lacking that they could hurt them.
The man who killed his daughters rapist will have to live with that for the rest of his life and his daughter with the trauma of that day for the rest of hers.
Justice has been done and has been seen to be done but not everybody is convinced about that. Shakes head
