It’s the kind of revenge many would dream about, but few would actually attempt.
There’s a certain visceral level at which every parent knows that some crimes deserve something worse than mere confinement in a prison cell.
Even ‘prison justice’ acknowledges that by treating some kinds of criminals as particularly contemptible. Sickos who prey on children, for example.
Now imagine it was a priest doing that to your kids, and one kid committing suicide as a consequence of that abuse. Would you be sorely tempted to settle a score?
One dad may have done exactly that.
Giuseppe Matarazzo spent 11 years and six months in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing two sisters while he was working as a pastor in Benevento, north of Naples, Italy.
According to local media, neXt, one of the young girls took her own life near her home in 2008, aged just 15 years old.
The 45-year-old was released from prison last year, but was killed in Frasso Telesino – a village in the province of Benevento – just weeks later. His body was found in July with five gunshot wounds, two of which were fatal.
It’s now emerged the father of the two sisters is being investigated by police on suspicion of murder, as authorities have confirmed the crime was committed ‘on commission’, with chief prosecutor Aldo Policastro confirming it was a ‘hired crime’.
After only eleven years in prison, he was being let back out into society.
What would YOU have done in that dad’s situation? Would you have been satisfied that justice had been served and that he had paid the penalty for his crime?
Or would you have been sorely tempted to put that predator down for good?
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
