The father of three daughters who have been abused by Larry Nassar tried to attack the former doctor in Eaton County court Friday before he was tackled and arrested by security. Randall Margraves said he was a "distraught father" and cursed at Nassar, but Judge Janice Cunningham told him that was not allowed in court. "I would ask you, as part of the sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon," he asked. "Would you give me one minute?"
If he is charged with a crime he should ask for a jury trial and, hopefully and probably, no jury in the U.S. would convict him for being a good father. Just too bad he wasn't quick enough to get his hands on that piece of excrement. Hopefully too, there will be "Dads" dealing with him in prison.
The judge declined, saying "that's not how our legal system works.""

Sometimes what is legal is not just.
I don't blame the fathter at all. A lot of people not even the fathers of victims do. And plenty of folks in prison will be out for a piece of him. That POS will be in solitary confinement for the rest of his life.

If he's lucky. He'll probably be shanked on the playground and spend most of his time in the infirmary.
Father should be focusung his energies on all the peiole that let Nasser do this for so long.
People who don't have police protection...
What's mind-boggling is that the authorities didn't expect this to happen. If they're going to allow a victim impact panel to be this close to Nasser, then he should be in a cage or behind bulletproof glass. For his safety, and the safety of the other people in the courtroom.
Because, as many have pointed out here, some fathers have a natural inclination to go murderously insane when meeting the perpetrator of crimes against their daughters.

What the hell does he have to forgive himself for? He didn't molest the kids.
"What the hell does he have to forgive himself for?"
Not protecting his kids from this Ayn Rand Superman named Larry Nasser.
The court room is often a place of high emotion and I am sure others have wanted to attack and in some cases have attacked the defendant when their loved ones were victimized. I wonder if they received the same level of understanding and compassion as was granted by this judge?
"Our local news just had breaking news that the judge will not punish the father. Smart judge."
Good news! But will he be given a medal for courage? He should be rewarded, that scum bag deserved every punishment that Dad could dole out. I would have given him ten minutes alone with that animal.
