PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A man described by police as a person of interest in the rape of an 11-year-old girl is in critical condition after being beaten by an angry mob in Philadelphia. Police say about a dozen West Kensington residents pummeled 26-year-old Jose Carrasquillo for several minutes with fists, feet and wooden sticks Tuesday afternoon after they recognized him from a photo distributed by police. Officers then arrived and took him into custody. Carrasquillo was arrested on an unrelated warrant but has not been charged in the rape, which happened Monday morning as the girl was walking to school.

On 1210am they we're talking about this case (in philly). There were so many people calling up voicing approval for the actions of the mob. Makes you wonder

I guess if it's ok to kill an abortionist then there shouldn't be much problem with beating a suspected child rapist.

It was wrong to do. MOb mentality is a bad thing - mmmmmkay?

Now, if it is clear he is the rapist and he gets off on a technicality I would vote to acquit any relative of the girl who tracked him down and beat the hell out of him.

So long as the system does not work they way you want then its ok to let lose the mob? :rolleyes:

I was abducted, beaten and sexually assaulted by a stranger; a recidivist pedophile predator who spent time in prison for previous sex crimes; an animal hunting for victims in the quite, suburban neighborhoods of Rhode Island.

I was able to identify the guy and although he was arrested and indicted, he never went to trial. His trial never took place because he was brutally beaten to death in Providence before his court date. 34 years later, no one has ever been charged with the crime.

Pray for the 11-year-old girl in Philly. Pray that she get's the counseling, support and love she needs to grow strong and find peace.

My novel, Men in My Town, was inspired by the actual events surrounding my abduction, beating and sexual assault and the murder of the man who attacked me. Men in My Town by Keith Smith is available now at www.Amazon.com.

the left LOVES a mob. It's the way they think - and how they act - they even vote like a mob. :( It saves them from personal responsibility for their actions. Lets remember that the man who got beaten has not been found guilty in a court of law - hell has not even been charged yet! INNOCENT TIL PROVEN GUILTY - right?

I'm all for child rapists/molestors, etc. getting punished to the maximum extend of the law (or even worse)...but this was "a person of interest" not a "suspect". The two terms are not synonyms, a "person of interest" is simply someone who police may have suspicion about, but no evidence to suggest them as a suspect.

Too many people don't get a fair trial as it stands, and you all think a mob should be judge, prosecutor, and jury of a man without even a defense? I can't say that the victim of this mob was innocent, but what if he was. Let's use this scenario: You come home from work, you find a body of your spouse, you try to revive them, getting blood all over yourself, & you call the police. The police arrive to find you covered in blood, a body, and a neighbor tell them that the two of you have had many arguments recently in the past and even contemplated divorce. Since you are so suspicious, you are labeled a "person of interest"...but are you really the murderer? See where I'm going? The fact is, this man could have easily been a victim of circumstance. I'd rather see a mob beat up someone who has been convicted of a crime or is reasonably well tied to the crime (I'm thinking Drew Peterson, Casey Anthony, Osama bin Laden,...). Please, people think this thing through.

Damn, Keith, I'm sorry you experienced that.


Mob violence can compromise the legal case against the perps. I don't mean you shouldn't shoot a perp who you catch in the act (that's protecting a third party), but once they do get caught, tried and convicted, they get justice within the prison system, eye for an eye. Or, they get put in "protective custody", which also sucks for inmates because they don't get the same access to the library or canteen or whatever gen pop gets.
