Victim Receives Nationwide Support After Admitting He Killed a Cop Who Raped Him as a Child
NEWTON, NJ — A deeply moving video has gone viral online after a man confessed to stabbing a police officer to death.
On the surface, the stabbing death seemed horrifying to those who heard it.
But once more details were brought to light, many citizens are hailing this man as a hero.
Those in the courtroom itself erupted in cheers of adulation and applause when Clark Fredericks described the circumstances that led him to stab the officer to death.
Officer Pegg had brutally raped Clark when Clark was just a young boy, unable to defend himself, according to the confession.
From the ages of 8 to 12, the officer raped Clark multiple times.
The officer told Clark that if word ever got out about the rape, that he would kill Clark.
The officer then went so far as to torture animals in order to send a warning to Clark, promising that if Clark ever told anybody about how the Officer raped him then he would receive the same fate as the tortured animal carcasses.
The officer also showed Clark sexually explicit photos of young children that he had taken.
“In the end, I slit his throat,” Clark confessed, pleading guilty to a charge of murder.
Emotional silence fell over the courtroom as he went into details about the rape and abuse.
Investigators later searched the computers that Officer Pegg left behind after his death, and indeed they found child pornography saved onto the Officer’s computers, confirming what Clark had said.
Now that he’s confessed to killing the man who raped him and terrorized him as a child, Clark may still receive a sentence and end up locked behind bars, being guarded by other officers for years to come.
But many feel that he should be released, saying that what he did was noble and courageous.
What do you think about this case? Is what Clark did right or wrong?
