This article seems only to justify why the guy was assaulted...bet his murder gets off easier than he did. I find that kind of disturbing. People should not be allowed to torture and execute others like that.
Anyone remember that guy Arizona had to let go recently who did 35 years for child molestation, swearing all along he was innocent? He was. So, do they all "deserve what they get/" Would your child, if it happened to them?

Jason Jerry Owens, 31, was adjudicated guilty of being principal to lewd and lacivious sexual assault on a victim under the age of 16 stemming from an incident on May 1, 1997 and was sentenced to 2 years and six months in state prison.

The St. Petersburg Times reported on April 6, 2002 that Owens was arrested after what appeared to be a burglary spree through New Port Richey while he was trying to break into cars. Deputies reported that Owens earlier donned latex gloves to burglarize jewelry from a home while a family slept, and used a screwdriver to break into a home and take jewelry and cash.
Owens broke into another home and took batteries, informing a resident that, “I’m a burglar,” and broke into three vehicles and stole tools and cigarettes.
