    A few hours after Marcus Arceneaux was pictured carrying his bloodied niece Bethany to safety yesterday, the young woman's family have revealed how they tracked down and took on her kidnapper in a deadly confrontation.
    Two days after the 29-year-old mother was abducted by her ex-boyfriend Scott Thomas, her family found her being held hostage in an abandoned Louisiana house.
    In the violent confrontation that followed, Miss Arceneaux was stabbed by Thomas who was then apparently shot dead as her rescuers took justice into their own hands.

    'We kicked doors down. It was like a movie unfolding,' Miss Arceneaux's brother, Ryan, told the Advertiser. 'If we would have waited, she would have been dead.'
    Ryan was part of a search party made up of family and friends who were helping police try to find Miss Arceneaux after Thomas, the father of her two-year-old son, grabbed her on Wednesday evening. At around noon on Friday the group were investigating an abandoned house, barely visible through the sugar cane fields surrounding it. Marcus Arceneaux, who helped rescue his niece, told KLFY 10: 'Everyone came running from the building and when I ran that way I saw my son was coming with Bethany. He had discovered her and got her out of that house.'

    I love it ........ great job by that family.

    Now I will wait for the predictable northern response saying they committed a crime.

    I was arguing with a dimwit who told me the family should not have taken the law into their own hands because it's "illegal". Morality aside, he said, it's "illegal". Let that stupidity sink in for a moment.

    If supporting the Rule of Law, rights of all people including those for whom noone wants to have rights means that I "defend the bad guys", then I am guilty as charged marine. Rights aren't just there for the good guys or those whose views with which you agree.

    Some people have a hard time deciphering what is required for a just society and the rights that MUST be applied to ALL in order to obtain such a communal dynamic. Don't worry about it...
