(Not that CSA is good news, but they caught him, thats good news)

Texas Mom Uses Barbecue Meat Fork to Catch Alleged Child Rapist,2933,289582,00.html

"He was well done."

That's what one woman said Monday after helping her son apprehend an alleged child rapist using her barbecue meat fork.

"I stuck him in his butt!" Linda Rhodes told, explaining how she and her son John Jennings apprehended the 17-year-old suspect Friday night in Garland, Texas.

Jennings was barbecuing chicken when he heard a 7-year-old boy calling for help. He said he saw the suspect, Deshaun Ridge, on top of the child, allegedly raping the boy.

"He stood up, and I just punched him right in the face," Jennings said. "He put his hands up and I grabbed him, and we went fighting."

Rhodes called police and then jumped into the fight to help her son apprehend the suspect. They held Ridge until police arrived.

"Being with people that understand you...Priceless"

"and i don't want the world to see me, cause i don't think that they'd understand"

"You don't know what love just do as your told"

"My life has changed. What you take as a simple thing, is not so simple for me anymore"

"Don't mess with Texas" indeed! Especially not a caring Mom with a barbecue fork in Texas. Big mistake! \:D I would love to see a pic of this woman.

Much love,

Awesome story!

Larry, you can see a news video with the mom, wielding her fork!


Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

If I could meet myself as a boy...
