A Brazilian Jujitsu instructor by the name of Daryell Dickson Menenzes Xavier gave himself up to the authorities and confessed to sexually assaulting and murdering his own son at the mere age of twelve months old. He was then incarcerated in a Taguatinga prison for thirty days to await his trial for the disgusting crime.
However, word of what Daryell had done quickly spread through the prison, and apparently his fellow inmates weren’t very impressed with his actions.
In a sort of triumphant vigilante mission, a gang of 20 prisoners cornered Daryell and each took a turn raping and torturing him, sending him to the prison hospital where medical staff had to give him multiple stitches – I’m sure you can figure out where he needed them.
After being discharged from the hospital and sent back into the general prison population, the same gang of inmates raped him again. Prison staff was alerted to this second wave of sexual assault when they noticed bloodstains on the backside of his prison uniform.
These events have split people into two groups – those who are shocked and disgusted by what is happening to Daryell, claiming this kind of brutal and horrific ‘vigilante justice’ is unlawful regardless of the victim’s initial crime, and those who are glad to see a child predator reap what he sows like a kind of ‘what goes around comes around’ karma.
However outraged or satisfied people might be by Daryell’s story, there hasn’t been a significant amount of vocal protest in his defense. After all, he’s already in prison paying his debt for the awful crime he has committed… does he deserve this extra punishment?
How do you feel about this?
