An emotional day in court during a sentencing hearing of Lawrence G. Nassar for his despicable crimes in Eaton County Circuit Court in Charlotte, Mich. today. A distraught father, who has been identified as Randall Margraves,was standing by his two daughters Lauren and Madison as they gave statements about Dr. Nassar’s sexual abuse. When they were finished, he asked the judge if she would give him “five minutes in a locked room” with Dr. Nassar. When the judge replied "No" the father then lunged at the defendant and was tackled, restrained and led out of the courtroom by deputies.
I have read comments on social media, a lot of which were negative and saying the father was out of line and setting a bad example for his daughters who have already endured the unimaginable. Others, like myself, are more sympathetic. I know, you cannot do this and it was wrong for the father to act out but at the same token, have mercy on anyone who hurts my child. I don't think I can say I would sit quietly by either. Vigilante justice, absolutely not BUT I know how I am and I am a mother that would fight the biggest baddest monster there is if they did something to my child. It's a terrible ordeal for the young ladies who were victimized and for the families and I just pray they all will be able to move forward, heal, and find some sense of peace after this.
