Michael Coghill, 33, a local pastor, timed his “jogs” to cross the path of children waiting for the bus to pick them up. One of the boys complained about this to his parents. The Father accompanied the child to the bus stop. When Coghill proceeded to touch the boy, the father took action. Coghill received more than his fill of knuckle sandwiches, ending with a fractured skull and cracked left side orbital socket (face).

From Fox News:

Oklahoma City Police arrested the suspect, Michael Coghill, on Wednesday, after he was recorded on camera touching a nine-year-old boy at a bus stop and was confronted by the boy’s father, according to News9. The police department, however, could not confirm to Fox News that the boy’s father was the one to confront the suspect due to the Open Records Act.

The boy told police that Coghill would often jog near the bus stop and had stopped by the area on more than one occasion, according to the police report obtained by Fox News.

The boy said Coghill had visited the bus stop on Monday and touched him in a way that made him uncomfortable. The boy also told his parents about the incident on Monday, and the father accompanied the boy to the bus stop on Wednesday, according to local reports.

“He knew the time he would be there every day,” Ward told News9 of Coghill. “That was the hardest part, the most disgusting part.”

The victim’s father sat in his car waiting to see if Coghill would make an appearance and touch the child inappropriately. As the boy made his way to the stop, Coghill stopped his jog and approached the boy, according to the police report.

“While he was watching the school bus stop, our suspect ran by him, ran past the bus stop where the children were waiting. Turned around, came back and stopped where he touched the child,” Sgt. Dillon Quirk with the Oklahoma City Police Department said.

Coghill was seen placing his hand on the child’s side, before he moved his hand to the backside of the boy. The father recorded the incident, which was given to police, and proceeded to tackle Coghill.

As a pastor, Michael Coghill should have known that God advocated for children. Fox News has more on the story here.

    But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6, KJV)

    His new friends in jail will even up those bruises for him. Left side needs to look like the right.

  5. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    There but for the grace of God go I, let someone inappropriately touch a child in front of me and that will be it regardless if the Kid is mine or not! And yeah, incarceration will be a life-altering experience for that “Pastor”.

  6. Green Thumb says:

    Nice feel good story.

    The Father should have finished the job.

    Glad OK is a Red State to boot. That way this clown wont be released.

  7. Tallywhagger says:

    Hope the father’s hand, fist, boot, knee, elbow and whatever else he may applied will heal quickly and righteously!

    That preacher needs to have a tragic accident.

  8. David says:

    If NAMBLA has its way in CA, the father would be arrested. SB145 “This bill would exempt from mandatory registration under the act a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.” The bill’s author says all it does is treat youthful LGBTQRTUV offenders like hetero onesd and that it just leaves it to the judges’ discretion applies as to whether they get put on the sex offenders registry. But it is weasel worded enough that you KNOW some defense lawyer is gonna twist it.. badly written law becoming set in stone over time, to the detriment of kids.

    What with three beautiful daughters I am a charter member of “Dadd” Dad’s Against Daughters Dating.
    Our motto is “Shoot the first one, word spreads fast”.

    The wonderful father here, should now start the “DAPT” “Dad’s against Pastors Touching”.
    Motto being: “Knuckle Sandwiches for pedo pastors”….

  10. Berliner says:

    In my opinion the dad was just being a good parent. The son complained, the dad listened, the dad observed and the dad acted to stop the behavior.

    Meanwhile in Italy “A Roman Catholic priest has been placed under house arrest after being accused of stealing church funds ($117k) to fuel his drug habit and to organize elaborate gay orgies. He was nabbed after police received a tip-off about his roommate importing a liter of the common date rape drug GHB from the Netherlands which aids in incapacitating victims of sexual assault.”

    Pastor Coghill you will be doing more than praying when you are on your knees in the slam.

  12. Poetrooper says:

    While ol’ Poe does not disagree with the ass-kicking delivered upon this perp pastor, he still finds it sad that pedophilia is largely a self-perpetuating sexual offense. Virtually every pedophile ever medically interviewed was himself sexually victimized as a child, and from that experience comes the unnatural urge to prey on children.

    But, as in this case, alert parents can prevent their children from being victimized and possibly (and horribly) becoming predators themselves. In fact, it is that tendency of the victims to inherit the perversion that makes such dramatic action by parents even more crucial.

    Ol’ Poe looks at that mug shot of that young pastor and wonders what happened to him as a child that put him on this destructive path. More than any other emotion, this old man just feels sadness that the human psyche is such that this perversion just keeps perpetuating itself.

    Poe also accepts that his view may be in the distinct minority here but that’s okay.

    • Fyrfighter says:

      Good points all Poe.. Sadly, it does seem that the only way to break the chain you describe is to permanently remove the offending link.. This is one type of crime / perversion that has virtually a zero chance of rehabilitation. Once these predators start, no matter how tragic the cause, they will continue until they are locked away from the world, or cease to draw breath.

  13. Old tanker says:

    Well done Dad, well done indeed. Obviously the Police arrived pretty darn quick as the mug shot shows, or the perp would have even more damage visible.

  14. Hondo says:

    The “Pastor” here might want to hope that he gets long-term protective isolation when he gets sent off to do his time. I understand child molesters don’t otherwise tend to do terribly well in prison.

    The hand of god mollests in mysterious ways.
