Bill O’Reilly, one would hope, may have learned something about not projecting the idea of vigilante justice, but Geraldo Rivera may want to think about not following in O’Reilly’s footsteps. While discussing the extremely questionable one year sentence handed down to child rapist, David Earls, Rivera gets extremely close, if not over the line, to suggesting that it’s okay for someone to leave Earls to be “found sometime on a country road.”

O’REILLY: If Earls ever walks out of jail and gets killed, who are they going to blame?

RIVERA: … I can only tell you ladies and gentlemen, that I will not weep if something happens to David Earls. I do not encourage vigilantism. I think it is something that puts your own life at risk. I do not advise it, I do not counsel it. I will not, however, weep if David Earls is found sometime on a country road.

O’REILLY: We obviously don’t want anyone to do anything. That would be as morally wrong as what Earls did—to take Earls’ life. You can’t do that.

RIVERA: I don’t agree quite with your moral reasoning. You’re more moral than I am.
