Watch: Father Assaults the Murderer of His Three-Year-Old Son in Court, and the Court Reacts in Shocking Fashion

What would you do if your son was killed? What if the kid, who was only three years old, had been brutally murdered shortly after the same ruthless criminal killed his mother? Most individuals would have a hard time controlling their emotions and not exacting at least some measure of revenge for their slain kid, especially those whose spirits haven’t been utterly broken by these days of softness.

That’s exactly what occurred in an Ohio courtroom when the father of a little child beat up the man accused of killing his kid by throwing him into the chilly waters of the Ohio River; the boy’s body has still not been discovered. Fox 19 reports on the altercation and the circumstances leading up to it.

The biological father of Nylo Lattimore on Thursday attacked the man accused of murdering the young boy. Surveillance video footage provided by the Hamilton County Shershows the physical altercation. Desean Brown, 22, is accused of fatally stabbing Nylo’s mother, Nyteisha Lattimore, before placing the 3-year-old in the Ohio River in December 2020.

Mediaite adds further information to the horrifying murder by pointing out that: Police say Brown was motivated to kill Nylo and Nyteisha Lattimore after the latter miscarried his child. The killing of her three-year-old, an officer said in court, was revenge for the lost pregnancy.

Watch the fight here:

As you can see in the video, shortly before the hearing started, the boy’s father, who was visibly upset, leaped up from his seat and ran over to the table where the (alleged) murderer was seated, punching him in the side of the head before viciously beating him.

The Ohio judge sided with the criminal over the father, whereas the majority of Americans would be sympathetic in this situation and give the upset father a very light tap on the wrist as punishment, if any punishment at all (many might give him a medal and offer to buy him a beer at the first opportunity).

Fox 19 also covered that element of the story, noting: Following the incident, Judge Megan Shanahan found Hughes in contempt of court and sentenced him to seven days at the Hamilton County Justice Center. Read more
