HAMILTON, Ohio -- Vigilante justice seems to have taken over in the community where a 9-year-old girl was raped Monday, News 5 reported.
Someone set fire Tuesday evening to the house where the attack occurred. Six Mexican immigrants were renting the house in the 900 block of Sycamore Street, and neighbors believe the attacker lived there, News 5 reported.
Racial tensions rose high after the attack, with some angry residents threatening to burn down the house and take other retaliation against Hispanics in the area. Someone had spray-painted "Rapest" (sic) and "Child Molester" on the house.
The victim's father asked people to let police handle the situation.
"They probably mean well, but they're taking everything in their own hands and they should leave it in the police's hands," the father said.
One neighbor told News 5 the community just wants justice. Some neighbors are alarmed that the alleged attacker is still on the loose.
"They're just trying to get a suspected predator off the streets," Eric Price said. "Everybody's outraged. I can't even believe it myself."
Hamilton police Det. Mark Hayes said vigilantes interfere with police efforts to find the attacker.

Hey, if you know that the Judiciary will do nothing, and some parasite attorney will get the guy off because the perp was "offended" by something the police said to him....
this is the next step.
Specially when the "professionals" remind us ad nauseam that they can't prevent squat, they can only try to arrest the perp after he has disassembled you with a rusty knife.
Good luck to your PC family.
The bad news:This is the step right before corrupt judges and lawyers are tar and feathered or hanged from street posts.
The Good news: America has a history of returning to order quickly after legitimate justice is reestablished. So we don't really have to worry about descending into anarchy.
Old concept in justice. If the law won't take care of it, it's just us.
You are exactly right. Unless the innocent are protected we are going to see an increase in this type of behavior. Today in America political correctness is the unofficial rule, unless you are a member of a protected group your chances for justice are severely curtailed.
If landlords are liable for crimes committed because they've allowed a light bulb to burn out...I don't see how they can escape liability when they've rented out property to criminals.
We talk about going after scofflaw employers, but another way to control illegal immigration is to find a way to go after landlords.
Now you will receive us! We do not ask for your poor or your hungry. We do not want your tired and sick. It is your corrupt we claim...With every breath, we shall hunt them down. Do not kill, do not rape, do not steal. These are principles which every man, of every faith, can embrace. These are not polite suggestions! These are codes of behavior, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost. There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth not to push the bounds and cross over, into true corruption, into our domain. But, if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three, and on that day, you will repent -- and we will send you to whatever god you wish.
And shepherds we will be
For Thee, m'Lord, for Thee
Power hath descended forth from Thine hand
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command
And we shall flow a river forth to thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be
In nomine Patri, et Fili, et Spiritu Sancti.
Some said landlords needed to take more responsibility in who they choose as occupants
If these landlords keep doing what they are doing and renting these places out to any and everybody for the almighty buck this is just the beginning, said Pershing Avenue resident Jerome Israel.
A rational response from the neighborhood.
I find it impossible to accept that a "landlord" is not aware that he is renting to a bunch of illegals. Do something stupid and expect the worst.
Wait a minute.
"neighbors believe the attacker lived there"? *Believe*? They torched the place, and they aren't sure!?
What about the poor bastard who had the misfortune to own the house next door, also damaged by these genuises?
Officialdom would have citizens protect themselves only in the most limited circumstancesbasically only on ones propertyand would not tolerate a citizen seeking out the greedy human filth before they comeand are working the problem themselves, but only after something happens. Too late for that, he thought. My family could be killed before they come and that wont stand. (From draft manuscript--Vigilante').
