WA - Puyallup Woman Beats 7 Foot Child Molester With A Bat
I'm sad she's in jail though. I would've done the same or worse if I saw him talking to my girls.
PUYALLUP, Wash. -- A woman who police said assaulted a sex offender with a baseball bat said," I'd do it again if I had to," reported KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.
KIRO is WSB-TV Channel 2's sister station in Seattle; both are owned by Cox Communications.
After learning that her Puyallup neighbor, 24-year-old William Baldwin, was a convicted level 3 sex offender from a flyer she received from the Pierce County Sheriff's Department, Tammy Gibson said, "I lost my mind."
"She grabbed a bat, picked it up and started beating the crap out of me. She started beating me the way a man would with a bat", said Baldwin of the incident. "I've never even seen her before and she just comes over and accuses me of molesting her children and attacks me with a bat."
Gibson said she had seen Baldwin around the River Road Trailer Park and adjacent Cottonwood Mobile Home Park several times over the last year.
"I can't believe that he was allowed in our neighborhood", said Gibson.
Gibson said she often saw the 7 feet 3 inches tall Baldwin talking with her 10-year-old daughter.
"Last year, on the Fourth of July, he was talking to my daughter. I got the flyer in the mail and I snapped. I went nuts," Gibson told McCarty.

If he says he has "changed" then he shouldnt have been talking to a ten year old anyway. He should stay away from them after what he did. I hope this woman does not get convicted of anything.

You don't change. You will always be attracted to children. It's the same as not being able to change liking women or men, or farm animals.

I agree Paladin....they are unchangeable and untreatable and many of them now have a movement to get their sick perversion accepted as a "sexual orientation" with all the rights that entails.

I read this last night and was going to post it but I just did not know which forum to put it in.
Cracked me up when he said she hit him with a bat like a man would hehehe Don't mess with a mama and her babies.
Got what he deserved.I would have done the same thing if not worse if I saw him talking to one of my children.

I've never met her and I know nothing about her but I really like this woman. I believe after they have served their prison sentences child molesters should be locked away in special hospitals. They are sick and will never get better and children deserve protection from their sickness. People may think it violates their human rights but a lot of killers have been confined for life to mental facilities so I don't see how this is any different.

Good for her!!
She reacted anyway, anyone would have.
If he was talking to a child 10 and under, I'd be ticked off too!!
He's need to be a current registered sex offender with his new addy, thank god she got the poster.
Who knows what else could have happened if she didn't know!!!!!

I'll never understand why child molesters and child rapists are allowed to walk after only a few years in prison. It amazes me that society would rather punish cigarette smokers (no I don't smoke), or people who don't use their seatbelt.
If the system fails to protect us, the hard working tax payers, then what choice is left but to grab a baseball bat!!

That's awful. Thank God they arrested her.

She knew the guy had not molested her daughter, in fact she had said in the past she thought this guy was harmless when she say him talking to her daughter. Yet she first told LE he had molested her daughter..otherwise she LIED. She knew she broke the law and had no justification for her actions so she lied. To her credit she did come clean and admit he had never touched her daughter.
No action on his part prompted this attack-she got the flier and took the law into her own hands and went and assaulted him.
She is NOT a hero.
People are offering to pay her bail- misguided people but this woman will end up being treated like royalty and feel justified in her violence and the next time she gets a flier perhaps she'll leave the bat at home and take a gun.
I honestly would rather have the sex offender who I am aware of and can keep track of living next to me than a woman who can go off on a violent rampage on a whim.
