Admit it, dads. You know you’d all be doing the exact same thing.
There’s a special bond between a father and son, sure.
But God help any man that hurts a father’s daughter… let alone THREE of them.
The SOB ‘Trainer’ who sexually abused young teens in the gymnastics program will spend the rest of his life rotting in jail. But there’s something in us that says that’s not quite enough to answer for his sins.
This father of three abused daughters certainly felt that way.
WATCH: The father of victims of ex-USA Gymnastic doctor Larry Nassar lunges at Nassar in court after saying to judge: “I would ask you to, as part of the sentencing, to grant me 5 minutes in a locked room with this demon.” http://cbsn.ws/2EyNaTp

He made a request that most victims would like to have the guts to make.
He asked for 5 minutes alone in a locked room with ‘this demon’.
The judge said ‘no’, obviously.
Undeterred, he asked again: ‘one minute, then’.
She still said no.
As any judge would.
That’s when he took matters into his own hands. If he was just a little bit quicker, he would have gotten a few good hits in.
The cops managed to break it up. Not for lack of trying, though.
The enraged father of three daughters who were sexually abused by Larry Nassar charged towards the former USA Gymnastics national team doctor and tried to attack him during a sentencing hearing in a Michigan courtroom on Friday.
The father, Randall Margraves, was nearly within striking distance of Nassar before officers tackled him roughly to the ground in front of his shocked daughters. The judge later accepted Margraves’ account that he “lost control” of his emotions and said she would not punish him.
One thing is for sure. Those girls know their daddy loves them.
He was willing to risk everything just to take a piece out of the monster that hurt them.
