Tales of revenge are the stuff of great movies, but revenge is just as typical of a motivator in real life for all kinds of dangerous deeds.
Revenge is one of the most common motivators for escalating crime, and losing a fight can lead someone to pick another, far more brutal war.
It happens everywhere because people can be wronged and seek self-serving justice anywhere.
Sometimes they may go too far, but those who hear the story of what motivated them may think they haven’t gone far enough.
John Eisenman was motivated by revenge for his daughter.
It’s a modern-day thriller, seemingly inspired by Liam Neeson, of a father’s love and care overpowering his sense of moral rightness leading to the murder of her boyfriend.
How his story will end is still up in the air. As of now, the verdict is still out on whether murder will be justified.
Some claim his revenge went too far, was poorly aimed, and that he got the wrong man.
Others claim his action was just in and of itself, by what motivated him in the first place. What price will he pay for his daughter’s safety?
10 /10 John Eisenman
John Eisenman’s Daughter, Ashley Kross, was allegedly sold off to a sex-trafficking ring in the Washington state by her then-boyfriend, Andrew Sorensen.
When John stopped receiving contact from her following some time with Sorensen, he became suspicious and started searching.
He later found out, along with his fiance Brenda Kross, where to find her and drove to Seattle to retrieve her.
They were successful, which should have been the end of things, but John went one step further.
9 /10 Andrew Sorensen
Andrew was the boyfriend of Eisenman’s daughter at the time.
He was 19, and she was still underage.
However, it seemed like the two had an acknowledged relationship with their parents.
He was a foster child adopted by his then parents and was disabled mentally and physically with cerebral palsy and autism.
The details of the relationship are relatively unknown, as much of the lives have remained private in official reports in light of the sex trafficking allegations, which require the protection of the victim’s identity.
