Mom lights husband on fire after finding out he molested her daughter

What would you do if you found out that your brand new husband was molesting your little girl? I'd probably torture and kill the bastard. I'm not sure that I could stop myself from hurting someone if I knew or even suspected that they were hurting my child. Well, I'm not the only one.

A Washington State wife and mother, 40-year-old Tatanysha Hedman, claims that her husband of 2 months. 52-year-old Vincent Phillips, was molesting her 7-year-old daughter (his stepdaughter). So Hedman did what any mom who just found out that she married a monster would do ...

Hedman went to a nearby gas station, filled up a gas canister went home to where her husband was laying in bed, doused him in gasoline and set him on fire. Burn baby, burn.

Hedman readily admitted that she bought the gasoline with the intended purpose of setting her husband on fire and does not deny any of it. When asked why she did it, she said she set him on fire because a bullet was too good for him and I don't disagree with her. Her husband denies all allegations and says he never touched the child.

Hedman is facing assault charges for allegedly setting her husband on fire. Police are recommending first-degree child molestation charges against her husband. I bet prison won't feel too good while recovering from first degree burns on your head.

Personally, as a mother of a 7-year-old myself, I agree with this mom and there is nothing I wouldn't do to punish the asshole who molested my child. It is our right and duty as parents to protect our children from danger and dangerous people. Presumably, this mother felt as if she brought the danger into the situation and the only way to make it right was to rid their lives of this heinous person.

As far as I am concerned, Hedman is a hero among mothers. That animal robbed her child of her innocence and has changed her forever. She will never trust again and neither will her mother. Being set on fire is about what he deserved, if he did commit these unspeakable crimes against this tiny little girl.
