Distraught Father Wrestled to the Ground by Deputies for Trying to “Attack” Daughter’s Rapist and Murderer… Now He Could Be Charged
Living with the knowledge that your child was brutally raped and murdered is any child’s worst nightmare. So for many people, grieving father Greg Brewer’s attempt to attack his daughter’s rapist and murderer, Karl Roberts, is understandable… but will he now face charges for doing so?
Karl Roberts was facing a competency hearing Monday when Andi Brewer’s father Greg Brewer allegedly tried to get to Roberts in the Polk County Circuit Court.
He did not manage to attack the convicted murderer before he was tackled to the ground by Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies, according to a representative from the courthouse, reports KFSM.
In 1999 Roberts, who was a relative by marriage, was sentenced to death row for the murder in Hatfield.
… Petty told KFSM, that Brewer jumped the partition after Roberts looked back and said, ‘Greg, it’s all going to be okay.’
‘I think he had just kind of had it,’ Petty said.
‘We’re just overwhelmed right now.’
While we can all sympathize with why Brewer would attack Roberts — who wouldn’t want to get their hands on the person who killed their daughter? — it unfortunately doesn’t make it acceptable for a person to physically attack someone. And while charges are allegedly pending, it somehow seems unlikely that authorities will want to throw the book at this guy. He’ll probably get a slap on the wrist and a warning to not do it again.
