Some of you older folks may actually remember this... But I did not. Really glad I read this story, and to be completely honest, I would do the same exact thing!

I'd recommend reading the rest of the article as well found below the quoted portion.

Jerry Sandusky was lucky.

He was sentenced to 30 to 60 years on Tuesday. Not all pedophiles get that far.

Meet karate coach Jeff Doucet.

courtesy of Jody Plauche
Jeff Doucet, like many molesters, tested the limits with Jody Plauche to groom him for abuse.
That's him, walking off a plane and into the Baton Rouge, La., airport on March 16, 1984. There's a sheriff with him. News cameras are rolling. He's accused of repeatedly molesting an 11-year-old boy, Jody Plauche, then kidnapping him to Disneyland. A rape kit proved he sodomized him more there.

Now meet Jody's dad, Gary Plauche.

That's him, waiting by a bank of pay phones. He's got a .38 snub-nosed revolver in his right boot. He's facing the wall, talking on one of the phones to his best friend, Jimmy.

"Here he comes," Gary whispered. "You're about to hear a shot."

Then Gary Plauche reached down for the gun, spun around and fired a hollow-point bullet into Doucet's brain from three feet away. Then he lowered the gun, turned around and hung up the phone. A TV camera caught it all. Doucet would be dead within 24 hours. (Editor's note: The video is powerful and discretion is advised.)

One day, maybe a year after the murder, he and his son were walking along when they saw a man who looked strikingly like Doucet.

Jody was trembling.

"Wow," he said to his dad. "I really thought it was him!"

Gary paused a second and then said, plainly, "I knew it wasn't."

. (Like a BOSS!!)


I wouldn't even think twice, I would have done the same thing. It does bring up a good point as far as not being too harsh about it when speaking to your child... So I'll just keep that part to myself when having that talk, knowing the whole time...that if heaven forbid my son comes home and says anything about being molested... I'll know that I'll be in jail within an hr

What good does it do to cap him and be in jail away from your son?

Pay someone else to do it on the sly dumbass.

"A judge said that Gary Plauche, shown here attending a Saints game, was no threat to the community, so he received a suspended sentence for killing his son's molester."

The irony.

I remember it. The instructor was also having an affair with the guys wife. He got zero time and did what ever father would have.

No. A real father would have tried to figure out why his kid didn't want to go, not forced him to do it. Apparently, if you ignore your kids and some stuff happens, it's the other persons fault.

I would have done something else. Same end result for the molester but a bit harder to pin on me. I live in Cali so getting a jury with common sense that would feel symathetic and let me off the hook is nearly impossible.

I remember the case.

These days, I wouldn't bet on any leniency from a jury.
Lawyers are too good at painting a picture and making excuses.

Have to agree with PS above....same result, different means.

What a sad sad ending to the story.. "Gary, though, doesn't speak much at all anymore, after suffering a stroke four years ago. But surely he remembers."
