Most parents wouldn’t think twice about protecting their kids from a child molester. Lakeshia Richmond of Memphis is no different. The mother of two young boys was arrested and faces aggravated assault charges after beating Tony Massey with a bat.

One of Richmond’s son told her that Massey, who is a baseball coach, touched him and other kids inappropriately.

After seeing Massey walking down the street, Richmond grabbed her bat and began swinging at him. Massey was found bleeding with severe wounds to the head and face.

According to reports, Richmond said, “When I see him, I see my kids being hurt and that’s all I see.”

Massey remains in the hospital and is currently being investigated for child molestation.

Share your thoughts. Did Lakeshia Richmond do the right thing by attacking the person who allegedly molested her son, or should she have let the law handle the situation?

    Well, this is a tough one. If she had proof he molested her children she should’ve beat his azz! However, without proof, viciously attacking this dude is in a fact a crime. I get that she was upset and reacted out of pure anger, but I think she should’ve reported it to the police instead of taking matters into her own hands.

      She did both, reported it AND took matters into her own hands. It’s a slippery slope but I can’t say I wouldn’t have done the same if it were my child. However, my child would not have been spending the night with his coaches.

    I UNDERSTAND HER ANGER, BUT IF SHE HAD KILLED HIM SHE COULD HAVE BEEN PUT IN JAIL AND NEVER ALLOWED TO RAISE HER CHILDREN. I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING,BUT WE MUST THINK ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE WERE TAKEN AWAY FROM OUR FAMILY

    No charges will probably ever get filed seems like too manysickos get sway with the shit, justice isn’t served so parents feel they have to take it upon themselves ! I agree I would not be able to resist from protecting my child and get them justice!!!

    Should have crushed his skull, no sanctity of life with thoses types. A brutal and horrendous bludgeoning until there was no choice but a closed casket. Maybe that would send a bit more of a message. IMO
