The words will ring in your mind like the words from Liam Neeson’s character in Taken: “…I will Look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.” While Liam Neeson was just playing the part of a desperate father protecting his child, the next words were said by an actual father who beat his son’s molester to near death. When asked after the offender received his 25 year sentence, why he let the man live he said “He’s going to learn in the next 25 years why I let him live”.
Raymond Frolander, 18, pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim younger than 12, which is punishable by up to life in prison. Circuit Judge Leah Case handed him a 25-year sentence and, as part of the plea deal, Frolander upon his release will be listed as a sexual predator and be on sex offender probation and electronically monitored for the rest of his life.
Having walked in on what was supposed to be an 18 year old Frolander, baby-sitting his 11 year old son, to find Frolander in the act of molesting his son, the man reacted and did what probably any father would, do, he beat the attacker to near death.

Now this predator will spend the next 25 years of his life, not just thinking about what he has done, but likely reliving what it feels like to be preyed upon. In a prison system where those who commit crimes against children are at the bottom of a population of hardened criminals, his next 25 years will likely be spent wishing that father hadn’t shown restraint, and delivered him from the evil he will now face.
In all of this it seems that sometimes justice is served, as this attacker will get what he deserves, and the father faced no charges for his actions.
