Briton Davinder Kainth , a father, caught Sandro Rottman, a paedophile, taking pictures of his 8 year old daughter. Mr Kainth then beat Mr Rottman to death with his bare hands.
There is no doubt that Davinder Kainth was provoked and was protecting his daughter. No weapon was used.
It reminded me of the case in Texas of the father who beat a paedophile to death who he caught raping his 5 year old daughter. The father was not charged. HERE
A man has died and there is a process of law that must be gone through but given that this was not premeditated, that no weapon was used, and that due to Sandro Rottman own actions, Davinder Kainth was almost certainly not able to reasonably control himself, I hope that the Spanish legal system takes the same enlightened approach as the Texas system did.
The line between ‘reasonable force’ and ‘deadly force’ is a fine one and very difficult to judge under the emotional circumstances that Mr Rottman subjected Mr Kainth to.
A British man has been arrested on suspicion of killing an alleged paedophile who he caught taking photographs of his young daughter.
Kainth Davinder, 40, was arrested by police on Saturday night after he allegedly attacked Sandro Rottman while the two were at Spinnaker restaurant in Sotogrande, an exclusive resort on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol.
According to police, that the 43-year-old victim had been charged with possession of child pornography days before.
It is not known if Davinder knew this at the time of the alleged attack.
A spokeswoman for the Civil Guard said that Davinder had appeared before a magistrate and been remanded in custody accused of homicide.
She said: “The discussion apparently began because of alleged recordings that the victim was making of the aggressor’s daughter.
“When he (the aggressor) saw what was happening he took the tablet off him, saw the recordings, threw the device to the ground and attacked him.
