Dad violently beats man he found raping his 11-year-old son & no one's mad at him
Last week, a dad in Daytona Beach, Florida, became my hero. The father, who remains unnamed, walked in on his 18-year-old babysitter and trusted family friend, Raymond Frolander, with his pants down around his ankles, sexually assaulting the man's 11-year-old son. The dad then proceeded to ask no questions and beat the living sh*t out of the guy. He then dragged him to the living room, left him laying in a pool of his own blood and proceeded to call an ambulance for the man. I'm sure I wouldn't have called him an ambulance. I would have started looking for a shovel.

During the 911 call, the boy's father can be overheard saying, "You are damn lucky, boy, that I love my God." I'm inclined to agree because a lesser man would have killed Frolander. I'm not sure in the same situation I could have shown any restraint. I think blind rage would have taken over. Frolander has stolen that child's innocence and has caused irreparable damage. This boy will never be the same again.
Frolander was arrested and charged with sexual battery on a person less than 12 years old. When questioned he freely admitted, "I'm guilty." According to the 11-year-old boy, Frolander performed oral sex on him and then told the child to reciprocate by fondling him. It also came out when interviewing the child that Frolander has been abusing him since he was 8 years old. This was not the first time, this was an ongoing relationship. No charges are being brought against the father, as the authorities feel he was acting within his rights as a parent.
I think the dad should have just kept beating Frolander because pedophilia is considered a sexual orientation and it cannot be cured. Pedophiles don't stop having the preference, either they suffer their entire life by denying themselves satisfaction or they give in to their compulsion and have sex with a child. It's not a choice in preference; the choice is whether or not to act on their desires so I believe there is no rehabilitation. If they get out, it's not a matter of whether or not they will molest another child but a matter of when and how long before they get caught.
Frolander may have survived the father but I think he should be locked up for the rest of his life. He didn't just sexually assault a child one time. This child has suffered this abuse for years.
I have a lot of questions like why did the boy never tell anyone? How did it go undetected for so long? I guess when you trust someone with your children, you want to believe they are good. I don't trust anyone ever with my kids. I can't for situations just like this. There are monsters in the world and they don't just hide under beds and scare us at night--they walk in daylight and babysit our kids.
