Dude gave no fucks …

We all have some pretty intense feelings when it comes to men (and women) doing unspeakable things to children. But while many argue that convicted pedophiles don't get enough of a punishment through American law, we can't help but feel some bit of solace of knowing how they'll be treated behind bars. Street justice, sometimes, is all we got.

Armed with a hammer and an online registry of sexual predators, Jason Vukovich of Anchorage Alaska took to the kind of justice we all secretly hope for. Simply put, he found people who were convicted of raping kids and beat the shit out of them. 

He blames his actions on the mental turmoil he's been going through since he was younger, stemming from having an abusive father himself. 

“What I can say at this time is that after being physically and mentally abused by a predator, my life was forever changed,” Vukovich wrote in a letter from jail to Anchorage Dispatch News while awaiting his Oct 17 trial. He claims to have went after the men he did in hopes of allowing other children in the "pursuit of their dreams," wanting them to live “without the threat of pedophiles lingering around them.”

One of his victims says Vukovich broke into his home and attacked him while he was asleep, shouting "I’m an avenging angel, I’m going to mete out justice for the people you hurt," while he fractured his skull with a hammer.

Did he break the law? Of course he did. You can't just go around beating people with hammers for any reason, regardless of how their past makes everyone want to do so. At the same time, you've got to feel for the guy. If he's been going through a life of hell because of a sexually abusive father, he isn't necessarily living in the same world most of us are. No one can say what that kind of emotional shitstorm would do to them, because most of us, luckily, haven't had to go through it. 

Lighter sentence? Probation? Work release? Hell, we'd hate to be the judge or jury in this case if it's in fact as black and white as the surface of the story makes it appear.

Too bad he didn't just rape a girl, then he might have gotten off with a slap on the wrist because of a potentially bright future? 

Maybe it's time to start questioning what 'justice' really means in this world anymore.
