Judge Dreadful killer a hero

A dad who shot dead a judge and a senior politician because they molested his three-year old daughter has become a national hero after going on the run in Lithuania.

Horrified Drasius Keyds, 37, gunned down the perverted pair on Monday after police turned a deaf ear to his pleas for justice for his tortured tot.

Now in hiding, Keyds has become a hero on YouTube and Facebook with hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the world pledging support.

"You are a hero to all of us," reads one Facebook message. "What you did is nothing but justice."

Mugs and t-shirts with his image on them have begun appearing alongside the logo "Drasius: Lone-avenger".

Keyds' nightmare began a year ago when daughter Deimantela told him about a meeting set up by his then fiancee with judge Jonas Furmanavicziusa and the Speaker of Lithuania's parliament , Andrius Us.

The pair allegedly raped and abused the youngster who reported her ordeal to her father.

But a year long campaign for a police investigation failed when detectives told Keyds there was not enough evidence to proceed with a case.

Now the fugitive dad is being offered a safe haven in neighbouring countries like Poland.

Parliamentary deputy speaker Stefan Niesiołowski said: "This is a clear case of incompetent law enforcement on the original crime."

    What if those 2 men DIDN'T do it? Would all your comments still be the same? How anyone can make absolute comments about this case boggles my mind. This could be a case of someone killing 2 innocent men for all you know, but all of you are letting your emotions and thirst for vengeance blind your ability to reason.

    And the 1/3 that ARE incarcerated are released after only a short time. Disgusting. I only believe this is the beginning of what is to come for men and women who commit sexual crimes against children. People are going to start taking the law into their own hands if the seriousness of these crimes is not addressed and handled in the swift and proper action needed. These crimes particularly against children destroy our future as our children are our future...so many are being violated and so many will grow with the scars...only two things will happen with these children when they become adults...they will either be absolutely opposite their attackers / abusers OR they will become just like them. We as a society get to choose the end result of their fate and see that JUSTICE however that may come about is served. Maybe when more parents such as this father become more apparent then maybe JUST MAYBE the world will wake up and finally say ENOUGH and people who commit these horrible crimes against children will start to realize ONCE AND FOR ALL THERE IS A ZERO TOLERANCE! BRAVO to this father! BRAVO! He has planted a seed in our world and opened eyes and started the change that MUST HAPPEN NOW!

    How many would there be left if we all did this? But at least it would be a safer place for all these precious children. Perhaps they will then think twice.

    A true hero, if someone did the same thing to my litle girl, I would kill every adult male in their family and I would kidnap and torture them for months until they died. I have told my wife that if anyone ever hurts my family, my destiny is determined. I will become the hunter and illed or imprisoned. When we start standing up to these animals, they will start to disappear.

    You are a True Hero To All, my heart is breaking for you and your daughter, especially after I read your letter to nobody! You've set a Proud Example and I Thank You a million times for being a Real Man and A True Father! May God bless you and your baby girl!

    If only ALL men who ever did this, got the same, and fast, our world would be a kinder, gentler place. Too bad in the US, not much happens to them. In the US, only 1/3 of convicted sex offenders are incarcerated. The other 2/3 are "registered" and tracked, as if this could stop them. Thanks Drasius!!!

    Way to go - I hope there are alot of people thinking long and hard about this. The tables are turning - parents will not sit back for much longer. Well done - I am only sorry they were not shot before these sick people caused untold damage to this fathers daughter and god knows how many other inocent children.
