Remember when Gary Plauche killed his sons kidnapper/rapist on live TV in 1984?

Man, you don’t see live TV like this anymore.

This is still the most gangster shit I've ever seen. Vid is blurry because it was 1984. If you don't know, the man in the red shirt kidnapped an 11 year old boy and raped him. The father was talking to his friend on the payphone when the police were escorting him out of the Baton Rouge airport. The second he walked by, the father told his friend on the phone "here he comes, you're about to hear a shot" and then dropped the phone, turned around and shot him through his right ear. Best part is, this was on LIVE TV. The father pleaded no contest to a manslaughter charge and he was given a seven-year suspended sentence (meaning he only went to prison if he committed another crime), five years of probation, and a little community service. So, the dude kidnapped and raped his son, the father shot him in the head on live television and didn't spend a single day in prison. That's how it should work.

A news crew from WBRZ-TV was also waiting for Doucet and had set up their cameras to record his arrival. Opposite the news crew was a bank of pay telephones, where Plauché waited while talking to his best friend on a telephone. He wore a baseball cap and sunglasses, so no one recognized him.

He gambled his and his family’s futures on an uncertain outcome out of rage.

That could be true, but remember Doucet not only molested the kid, he kidnapped him and took him to California and dyed his hair. The parents didn't know if their child was alive or dead, what the kidnapper was doing to the child, what the kidnapper might be letting other people do to the child.

Also, while there was truth then, and now, that some fathers might be proud or just don't think it's a big deal for their boy to fuck his teacher, I'd say that mainly only applies once the child has passed puberty. The pictures of Jody at the time looks like pre puberty to me. So the father might have been just as upset at a woman, maybe not, but we will never know.

Also, I think a big thing for Plauche was his own parental guilt. According to some reports the parents were separated at the time and Gary was not living in the house. He could've been thinking, "if I had only been in the home, I could've stopped this."

Jody makes an excellent point: parents who chose to exact vigilante justice traumatize their child again and quite possibly wind up being separated from them for years at a time when the child most needs parental support. It's something that may feel right and necessary to the parent, but isn't really in the best interests of the child.
