Mother Beats Sex Offender

Last Saturday a women by the name of Tammy Gibson, a mother of 2 girls, was sentenced to 3 months in jail for attacking William A. Baldwin, a level-3 sex offender.

Baldwin who is 7 feet, 3 inches tall, had moved into Tammy's neighborhood last June and police passed along flyers with his photo to notify neighbors of his presence. Tammy mentioned that she beat the hell out of him with a baseball bat and would do it again! She said that last summer she saw him chatting up her 10-year-old daughter, Renee Maria Perez, on the playground and that she had recognized him from the police flyers. "He tried to give me fireworks and I wouldn't take it," her daughter had told her. That really infuriated Tammy. She went to the trailer park where he lived and asked for him. When he stepped out of his home, she told him that he had molested her little girl and proceeded to beat him with a baseball bat, over and over again. He suffered from a broken arm because of it. Police said that she later admitted that she was wrong telling Baldwin that he molested her daughter. But she did mention to the press, when they asked if she regretted what she had done, "No, I'd do it again if not better," and "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." Tammy hopes that her action sends a message to law makers and hopefully makes them change some laws pertaining to sex offenders.

Whether she was right or wrong in this incidence, her actions did accomplish getting a level-3 sex offender out of her neighborhood. Records show that since then, William A. Baldwin has moved out from Tacoma to Seattle.
