Lowell Vigilante Dad Plays Race Card When We Won’t Blog About Him Confronting Neighbor He Accuses Of Trying To Diddle His Daughter, Becomes Blog Topic Himself

Last night a father in Lowell sent us a video of himself and his wife confronting a neighbor who they believed was planning on doing bad things with their 13 year old daughter:
Here’s the video:
We get a lot of messages like this on a daily basis and we blog about what we can get to. We try to pick the most entertaining and informative stories. Most importantly we are looking for stuff that can be backed up and verified. We’re not gonna accuse someone of being a child molester if we don’t know for sure that they are one. Attorney Richard N. Vulva would take us to poundtown in deformation court.
And quite frankly this video was just missing a couple things. For one, there’s no proof any of this happened. The dude denies all the salacious stuff. He admits to speaking with the girl when he sees her in passing. He admits going to this guy’s house and asks the kid if her parents are home so he can talk to them. He admits to offiering her a gig making some cash doing laundry for a crippled friend of his. They accuse him of telling the girl she’s beautiful. He denies it. They claim they have video of him telling her that. A video they decided not to send us.
Finally the Dad starts yelling at him about taking it to the physical level, which let’s be honest, was the main reason he did this to begin with. To physically confront him and accuse him of being a pedophile. Granted, I still think the guy is a good father who obviously cares about his kids and seems to be well respected in the community. But he’s acting out of emotion and love for his daughter, and we don’t blog based on emotion alone.
Long story short – this story is not turtle worthy. I mean, what’s our take supposed to be? “Dad accuses neighbor of being a pedophile for speaking to daughter without him being around, neighbor denies bad intentions”? Granted the dude does look like every Level 3 sex offender who’s ever lived:
And quite frankly he didn’t deny it nearly as adamantly as I would’ve if I was confronted like this and didn’t have bad intentions.
But yet here we are writing about a story we said we’re not writing about. We’re only doing this to show you, a) the shit we deal with every day, and b) the difference between a good story and a bad story.
We’re not in the business of destroying people’s lives without proof that they’re bad news bears. There’s nothing worse you can be accused of than being a pedophile. There’s no coming back from that, and rightfully so. Thus we’d have no problem shaming a kiddie toucher. But there’s absolutely no proof that that’s what this dude’s intentions are. So we’re not gonna dig through his life and destroy him just because we can.
So we told him that, and initially he seemed to understand:
Yes, if this guy came to my house and started asking sketchy questions to my daughter I’d probably tell him to stay away from her too. And once again, I’d LOVE to see that tape. Conveniently it wasn’t provided. But if it was, THAT would be a Turtleboy worthy story.
But Andres seems to disagree with us, and he’s not happy about it:
Hey ding-dong, we don’t automatically write about every vigilante hardo who sends us a video. Try Fox 25 News. They love to report on one-sided bullshit.
Naturally he played the race card by accusing us of not writing about it because we view his child as his “little spic daughter.”
I am interested in this story though:
If you got secret files on those assholes at PETA then send em over brotha. In the mean time chill the fuck out and just understand that we blog about what we wanna blog about. And that usually involves stories that are clear and backed up by facts. Your story was backed up by nothing, which is why we chose not to blog about it. Until you went postal and we decided that the real story here was you.
