Puyallup woman beats sex offender senseless

I have a new hero and her name is Tammy Lee Gibson from Puyallup, WA. About a month ago, Gibson noticed a very tall man chatting it up with her 10-year-old daughter in their neighborhood; a piece of visual information she stored for later. Later came last week, when, along with the rest of her neighborhood, Tammy Lee got a written notice from the state that a level three registered sex offender was moving in nearby. Willam Baldwin, the man in question, had been convicted previously for molesting a 5-year-old girl and while on parole molesting another different girl of the same age. Baldwin was the man Gibson had seen talking to her daughter.

With a baseball bat in tow, Gibson sought out the sex offender and after several slaps to the face, began laying into Baldwin with the bat. She has now been arrested and could be charged with assault and felony harassment charges.

"I kept swingin' and swingin', and swingin," Gobson told the investagators. "If it were up to me, I'd kill him. I'd kill him."

Sure, vigilantism is a slippery soap, but all things being equal, I'll bet this man will never talk to Gibson's little girl again. Period.
