    I feel sorry for Mr. Smith. I hope he survived that take-down and I wish he wouldn't be charged, but I suppose he will.

    I applaud Mr Smith. He probably needed to get that punch in. It might be worth it in his mind to sit in a jail for a couple of days in exchange for hitting that monster in the face. JMO

    Can't say I blame the dad. I'm kind of surprised this doesn't happen more often, to be honest.

    I have often thought the same thing. I don't think I could sit calmly if I was a few feet away from someone who battered my baby to death.

    Pardon me for scratching my head at some of the comments here.

    On one hand, the US Justice system is under fire for being broken according to many threads (most of them closed now) - specifically where LE is concerned - with disrespect to say the least towards officers, riots etc. Yet on the other hand, the same people that advocate there is nothing wrong with what LE does these days in the US, are saying it's OK (even expected) for a citizen to lose control in a court room and attack another person due to the crime committed.

    Not only do I not get the hypocrisy, will disregard future posts that LE can/should shoot, beat, lock-up etc any citizen in the future on an 'as needed basis'. Will look at those posts as violence begetting violence for ...? entertainment, the ability to brag at backyard BBQ's ... whatever.

    It's beyond words the tragedy to this little child - but courtroom attacks should not be celebrated. It's opening the doors for further disregard for law and order. The 'voice' of America should know that imo.

    There's a big difference between a police officer losing his temper-

    -and then murdering an innocent citizen for NO good reason; and a parent who literally cannot help himself when confronted with the slime ball who killed his child. No right-thinking person wants courtroom attacks to occur, but it's easy to understand why they might.

    I do not 'celebrate' the attack. But I fully understand the anger towards the coward who beat the man's 3 yr old to death. So go ahead and disregard future posts..whatever.

    If you had a beautiful 3 yr old baby girl, and someone beat her to death, how would you react to seeing her killer a few feet away from you? Are you saying that you would not have the urge to punch him? I sure would and I don't feel ashamed to admit so.

    Boldfaced by me.

    This really does seem contradictory.

    FWIW - I absolutely do not share that opinion. A cop should keep it together and revenge is not justice.

    I would never choose to be a few feet from that killer - ever. My thoughts and urges would be conducted in the privacy of my home - not in the public eye. Otherwise, I would have much to be ashamed about - no better than the killer.

    I so get why people defend LE wrongdoing now - revenge is sweet, or so I've heard.

    The father was in court to give his victim's impact statement regarding the murder of his daughter.

    Yes he was - not quite the end of the story though is it. And the kudos he received for his attack - to each his/her own opinion. Kudos would then have to be extended to the next person, and the next .... One will often outdo the last person.

    It's strange that all Dad's anger was directed at the man.

    It was Mom who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter AND child abuse and got a minimum of 14 years. Thomas was 'only' found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and his minimum was only 4 and half years.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance
