“I asked them ‘Did he touch you bad, did he touch you down there?’ and my little boy said ‘yes’,” Richmond claimed, “and I said ‘was it just you?’ and he said ‘no, it was some more kids’.”
Within an hour, Richmond says she saw the coach, Tony Massey, walking alone down an avenue in Memphis and “snapped.” She went into the backseat of her car to retrieve a bat, chased Massey down and beat him repeatedly.
“During the beating he was saying he didn’t do it and that he was sorry,” said Richmond. “If you didn’t do it then why are you saying you’re sorry? What are you sorry for?”
Massey’s grandmother said Richmond should have allowed the police to investigate the claims, according to Channel 3:
“What if they had killed him,” said Lula Massey, the victim’s grandmother.
She believes Richmond should have let police investigate the claims. Massey showed me search warrants of her grandson’s apartment from Saturday night. Police signed off that they found no physical evidence.
“He is [in his 30’s], I have never seen him touch a child inappropriately or heard of him touching a child inappropriately,” she said.
Massey just wants justice for her grandson against a vigilante mother who took justice into her own hands.
“If [the allegations are] true, I hate it, but if it’s not, I want these people to pay for beating up my grandson like they did,” said Massey.
Massay is in serious condition at a local hospital. Police are investigating the allegations.
