Danny Ward (pictured above), a convicted child rapist in Dublin, Ireland, was the recipient of a massive beat-down by unidentified locals, who have been uncomfortable with him living in the area since he arrived last year.
Ward was immediately met with protests when he moved to a bed-and-breakfast, the Irish Mirror reports. However, until recently, those protests had not turned violent.
Authorities believe the plan to attack Danny Ward may have been in motion for quite some time. In October 2014, he continued to stoke local fears when he was caught peeking into the windows of a primary school.
Ward was attacked on June 4 and left laying in a heap as can be seen from the image. He has since been transferred to a couple of different locations by police for his own protection, including the Irishtown Garda Station.
No arrests have been made, and going by the comments on Facebook, the police will probably have their work cut out for them.
“Should have killed the scumbag,” wrote Timothy Briggs.
“Why is he out and free? He should be in jail getting raped daily by increasingly large objects so he cries every time just like the poor kid did when he raped [him]. Eye for an eye. Or in this case a** for an a**,” added Mark Adamski.
The furor over having a convicted child rapist walk free is likely what motivated the attack, but it could have been worse for Mr. Ward. Take this previous Inquisitr story about a martial arts instructor who was convicted of killing and sexually abusing a child.
He received a merciless beating at the hands of other inmates and was raped multiple times in a now-viral story that has an image too graphic to show.
Translated from the O Presente report.
“Daryell was raped by about 20 prisoners. He had injuries all over the body, the most serious ones in the anal region. Dissatisfied, and still furious about the crime committed by the professor, the prisoners tore apart the stitches that he received and raped him again. The blood stains on the rear of the short of the young man are proof of how much he suffered.”
Do you think vigilante cases like this one and that of Danny Ward should be thoroughly investigated by police, or should it really be “an eye for an eye”? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
