Daytona Beach father who beat up rape suspect asks for donations

 

The father who pummeled an 18-year-old man police say was sexually battering his son put his son’s picture on social media Monday and initially asked for $1 million in donations to help rebuild the child’s life.

“Rebuilding Innocence” was the headline atop a picture of a sleeping boy on a website called gofundme.com. The father posted a link to the website on his Facebook page Monday.

“We are reaching out to anyone that can help. Our son was sexualy (sic) assaulted and we are now faced with the challenge of picking up the pieces, the emotional and financial burden is about more than we can endure.. Please.. Anything helps.. God bless and be with you all..” the father wrote Monday.

Early Monday night, $145 had been donated. A few hours after the Facebook post, the son’s picture was removed from the gofundme page, more description was added, the headline was changed to “Help Restore My Son’s Innocence” and the million-dollar request was reduced to “$100k.”

Police Chief Mike Chitwood was dumbfounded Monday when he learned that the youngster’s father had posted the child’s photograph on Facebook and that he was asking for funds.

“It’s sad,” the chief said. “You don’t go out and exploit what happened to this young man (the son) for money.”

Chitwood explained how investigators and mental health officials who work with victims of sexual abuse strive to protect their identities.

“This is unbelievable,” Chitwood said. “The stigma that goes with being sexually abused is terrible.”

Gofundme might be the worst site that had good intentions ever to grace the Internet.

In a way, I suppose.

But, really, more-or-less anyone would have done what this guy did if they caught their kid being assaulted. That action alone doesn't indicate anything too informative about their character.

He'd be getting loads of donations but he asked too much. Better off asking "for donations to a college fund to help with tuition when he's older."

Putting such a large sum on it makes it look greedy

"Police said Frolander was living in an apartment next to the boy and his father. The suspect, police said, was rooming with the rape victim’s biological mother. Additionally, Frolander’s stepmother is engaged to the rape victim’s father, the chief said. The stepmother was married at one time to Frolander’s biological father."

Are you referring to him saving his son and beating the guy's ass or him trying to exploit the situation for money?

Bc I'm referring to the latter. This is a very odd thing to do. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, I was just saying that it's an odd thing to do, but it's not like it's any more odd just because the guy did something that everyone applauded.

The best of us and the worst of us would beat the snot out of someone we caught assaulting our kids. It seems like people attributed a whole heroic persona to the guy, though. And feel shocked that he did something out of character, when we never really knew his character to begin with.

Is counseling provided free of charge for victims of sexual assault? Maybe he wanted donations to pay for that. Phone Post 3.0

This just makes me feel even worse for the child. To have gone through that whole ordeal will truly fuck with him for the rest of his life. Having a father that tries to exploit those events for financial gain makes the situation even worse. Poor child. I hope somehow he gets the help he needs. Phone Post 3.0
