The San Francisco couple had tried to no avail to get their daughter to sever ties with her boyfriend, 22-year-old Calvin Sneed, as they knew his intentions were criminal, and they’d tried the police and child services, all to no avail.
Gilton and Mercado decided to get their daughter back themselves.
Sneed was gunned down in his car outside of Candlestick Park on June 4, 2012. He was shot by Gilton – a former Boys & Girls Club coach – who fired a .40-caliber weapon from his SUV, killing Sneed. Both parents were charged with first-degree murder.
A Man Beat Up The Pervert Who Tried To Pick Up His Young Daughters
Photo: s8an/flickr/CC-BY-NC 2.0Kenneth Faulkner was arrested in July of 2015 in his hometown of Maury County, TN. He was charged with aggravated assault, a violent crime that typically includes time behind bars. The man he assaulted had also been charged – and convicted – with a crime, though in the eyes of the law, probation was deemed a suitable punishment. Faulkner disagreed.
67-year-old Thomas Williams was indicted in April of 2013 on two counts of solicitation of a minor. The minors in question – ages 4 and 7 – were Kenneth Faulkner’s daughters. When Williams plead guilty and was sentenced to mere supervised probation, Faulkner decided to take matters into his hands.
Passing Williams on the street, Faulkner claimed the sex offender winked at him, which was enough to set him off. Police reports indicate that Faulkner punched Williams in the face, then threw him down a staircase. He continued to beat the man, throwing at least 10 punches before the fight was broken up.
For his crimes, Faulkner didn’t exactly face any community outrage. He ended up becoming something of local celebrity, and received hundreds of new friend requests on Facebook.
A Father Greeted His Daughter’s Stalker With Six Shots To The Head
Photo: tacit requiem (joanneQEscober )/flickr/CC-BY 2.0It’s a natural instinct for parents to want to protect their children from imminent danger, and perhaps nothing signals looming trouble like a deranged stalker. 60-year-old Paul Bender, a retired Brooklyn cop, faced such a threat when his daughter Jill was being stalked by 24-year-old Robert Selman in the winter of 1996.
Selman was also an ex-cop – he had been fired from the same precinct from which Bender retired – and he had taken a shine to Jill, though the two were never romantically involved. Selman repeatedly made obscene phone calls and lurked around the windows of Jill Bender’s home, prompting a restraining order. Selman, however, did not heed the judge’s instructions and persisted in his harassment of Ms. Bender.
Finally Paul Bender had had enough, and in February of 1996, he charged into Selman’s apartment. He confronted the man who had been stalking his daughter and put six rounds into his head, ensuring the problem would end.

Though he adamantly denied the claims, Vela cut the the accused molester’s penis in a struggle over the box cutter. According to the man, “Vela told him that ‘she wanted to scar him so that he would have to look at it every time that he had sex in the future.'”
Vela was charged with criminal confinement with a deadly weapon and battery with a deadly weapon. The molestation investigation is still ongoing.
