John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

A father from Phoenix is facing a second-degree homicide charge for beating a man who was trying to enter a public bathroom stall that his daughter was in.

Melvin Harris, 40, stopped to pick up his 16-year-old daughter and two of her friends who had just gotten off work. The kids asked if they could grab a soda and use the bathroom at the nearby QuikTrip convenience store on 19th Avenue and Dunlap Avenue, AZ Family reported.

Police identified Leon Leevon Armstrong as the man who was trying to get in the stall that Harris’ daughter was using. Armstrong allegedly barged into the bathroom, and was physically shaking the stall door to get it open.

Harris’ fiancee, Diana Jackson said: “I’m not mad at him. I don’t feel like he did anything wrong. I love him. He did what he was supposed to do for our kid. You cannot tell someone they’re wrong for protecting their children.”

Harris and his daughter informed store employees about the incident, but wasn’t satisfied with how they handled it. He reportedly told the security guard to “take care of the situation, or he would do it himself,” per court documents.

Upon leaving the store, Harris saw Armstrong and decided to confront him, which led to a physical altercation.

Harris beat Armstrong to death by hitting, kicking and stomping on him repeatedly, according to witnesses. Armstrong died at the hospital from brain swelling, a nasal fracture and loss of oxygen, police said.

While Harris admitted his role in the incident, he said that Armstrong threw the first punch.

“I would have done the same thing. I don’t feel bad at all for his actions. I feel bad that the man ended up dying in the process. I do,” said Jackson.

Harris has been charged with second-degree murder and is being held on a $100,000 bond.

Harris’ fiancée reportedly set up a GoFundMe account to hire an attorney for Harris, but the fundraiser was not available at publication time.

That Dad is a hero. 

 

Any one who has been sexually assaulted can tell ya it is life sentence . Something you never get over. "Hero Dad" may have saved an innocent from a life of shame. 

Please i am not saying a victim should feel shame we should not, but we often do.

Interested to see whether Gofundme pulls any funds raised for this man's defense. There was a day when a man didn't even have the right to be in the women's room. Now cases such as these are blurred putting not only the victims at risk but also those who come to their aid. In the past Gofundme refused to release money to Christians for an attorney to defend themselves from having to bake a cake or flower arrangement for same sex weddings. Gofundme stated at that time they didn't allow funding for "criminal activity". Gofundme obviously viewed these Christians as guilty before going to trial. And to further demonstrate the bias of liberal companies such as Gofundme, there's Peter Strzok who recently raised over 6 figures in only ten hours after he was fired from the FBI.
