Tammy Lee Gibson, Mother Gets 3 Months in Jail for for Beating Sex Offender with Baseball Bat … “I’d do it again”
Bat welding mom sentenced to 90 days in jail for beating a convicted child molester
“I’d do it again, if not better.”
Should sex offenders be allowed to talk to 10 year old girls with no consequences? Contrary to what our present laws and the courts might think, a convicted sex offender is not a normal neighbor. Who honestly thinks that a convicted sex offender is just a neighbor? Something must be done in this contrary to protect the rights of the innocent rather than the rights of convicted child predators. When will the courts start treating child sex offenders for the sexual predators that they really are?
Tammy Gibson stated as she prior to being sentenced as her two daughter looked, Gibson told Pierce County Superior Court Judge Susan Serko that laws are needed to keep convicted sexual predators away from children.
It’s 90 days for doing what many say was family protection, but the law saw it as an unprovoked attack on a man who wasn’t breaking any laws. He was just a neighbor.
Tammy Lee Gibson, outraged mother was sentenced to three months behind bars for beating a convicted sex offender with an aluminum baseball bat after he reportedly was talking to her 10 year old daughter. Jail? She should have been given a medal, an aluminum one … Unprovoked?
Gibson said she has no remorse for the June 19 assault but pleaded no contest Friday to assault charges. She could have received as much as eight months in jail, but the judge sentenced her to three.
“No, I’d do it again if not better,” she told ABC News Seattle affiliate KOMO-TV. “I don’t care if it hurts me, I don’t regret it. It got him away from my kids and all the other kids in the neighborhood.”
William A. Baldwin, a Level-3 sex offender had moved into his uncle’s home in Tacoma, WA in early June. Following his move, county deputies distributed flyers around the neighborhood to alert residents of his presence. Hardly what one would do for your average neighbor next door. On June 19th Tammy Lee Gibson went to the residence of William Baldwin, called him out and began smacking the day lights out of him with a baseball bat leaving him with an injured arm.
Contrary to what she had said to Baldwin, Gibson later told investigators Baldwin had not molested her children.
She did say, however, that when she saw the flyer, she recognized Baldwin as the man who had chatted up her then-10-year-old daughter during the previous summer. It may have been Baldwin’s unusual height of 7 feet 3 inches that made him memorable.
“For him to be right there, in front of my house and talking to my child — made me crazy,” she said.
“And I told him I thought he was a piece of crap and I smacked him,” she said. “I just didn’t stop hitting him. I just told him that ‘if it were up to me, I’d kill ya.”‘
“I was scared. I was frightened. I didn’t know what the hell to do,” Baldwin said of being assaulted by the unexpected visitor.
“I just wanted to hurt him,” said Gibson.
