Dad Who Killed His Daughter’s Molester Regrets It, So Stop Applauding Him!

The debate over whether a father who found a man molesting his 4-year-old daughterand allegedly beat him to death has been raging for days now. And it’s time to put it to bed. The Texas dad will remain anonymous, and cops say he will likely not be prosecuted. What’s more: he says he wishes it hadn’t happened.

Dr. Nipple Sucker, M.D.

A Finnish doctor is on trial for sexual molestation after using a highly unorthodox method to diagnose a patient. When a 20-year-old woman came into his office complaining of nipple fluid, the doctor says he “used an old midwives trick” to diagnose her. After asking her permission, he sucked on her nipple. Now it’s up to the Finnish Supreme Court to decide if his method was inappropriate. Way to go, Dr. Nipple Sucker, M.D. That’s about as creepy as it gets. [FOX] Keep reading »
