Larry Nassar, the disgraced former USA gymnastics doctor who was recently sentenced to several lifetimes in prison, was back in court this morning for more victim impact statements.
Randall Margraves was in court with his two daughters, as they read their own victim impact statements. After they were finished, the father asked if he could have a chance to say something to Nassar, and the request was granted. No one could have expected what happened, but should they have?
Margraves started his statement with “You son of a b***h,” before asking Judge Janice Cunningham if she could, as part of Nassar's sentence, grant him another request, “I would ask you to as part of the sentencing to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon. Would you do that? Would you give me one minute?” he said.
When the Judge said she could grant no such request, Margraves took the situation into his own hands, charging directly towards Nassar, intent on laying out his own brand of punishment.
Nassar's lawyer and several court officers stepped in before Margraves could get to Nassar, tackling him to the ground as Nassar was herded out of the courtroom. We're guessing that he isn't the first parent of one of the victims who has wished to have five minutes alone with the truly disgusting individual. And we're also wondering what will happen to Margraves? Will he face a set of charges himself?

Was Margraves justified in doing what he did?
