Husband who killed his wife’s would-be rapist is CHEERED as he leaves court after he was charged with manslaughter for beating him to death with a tire iron

The New York City man who beat his wife’s would-be rapist to death was released from custody on Tuesday evening to a chorus of cheers.

Mamadou Diallo was hailed by members of the Guinean community and his family as he left the Bronx Criminal Court after the judge freed him on his own recognizance.

The 61-year-old was arrested on Monday night and charged with manslaughter after he battered Earl Nash to death with a tire iron inside his Bronx apartment building elevator.

Diallo was outside his building when his wife, 51, called and said a man had broken in, dropped his pants and said, ‘I’m going to rape you.’

Diallo ran inside, caught up with the attacker identified as Nash, 43, and fractured his skull with the steel lever as Nash tried to fight back with his belt, the NY Daily News reported.

Nash died at Lincoln Hospital from ‘severe trauma to his head and body’ about three hours later, according to police.

    Tire irons are good things to keep someplace handy.

  • “Mamadou” is a West African version of Mohammed. And, yes, I’m glad he got off. (And I’m glad the rapist didn’t. Sorry, bad taste?)

      He was released from jail but this wasn’t the murder charge being dropped.

    • Alain

      Yes, Mamadou is Mohammed in Oulaf, just as his last name tells me he is Oulaf. Like you in this situation I take his side against that of the rapist.

  • Black African with values kills black African-American with no values.

    Is the black African racists?

    • Alain

      Actually when I live in West Africa the Africans couldn’t stand black Americans. I know because the Americans thought sending black Americans there as Peace Corp workers was preferred over sending white Americans. Yet most of the whites were better accepted than the blacks. Of course things may have changed since then.

    If de Blasio was a man, he’d give him a medal and the keys to the city.

  • Violence is never the answer.

    • True. But it’s possible the whole mess came about ’cause that ho didn’t know her place. I know you feel me, Juice.

      The greatest Lie ever told.

      Of course it can be. And quite permanent to. Our safety is reliant on the correct use of it as well. It’s true our Leaders use words to solve there problems. Words like: “Carrier strike group”, “Tactical Drone Strike”, and “Nuclear deterrent”.

      Don’t be Naive. Violence is entirely effective. If it wasn’t it wouldn’t be a problem.

      • Those who live by the sword, get everything they own taken away from them in civil court.

        • Jabberwokk

          No those who live by the sword become the court.

          Funny coming from a guy who has OJ Simpson as an avatar.

      Get a life. Yes, violence can be an answer. It was only through extreme violence that the German Nazis, the Italian Fascists and the Japanese militarists were stopped. People like you are what’s wrong with society–hug a thug, kiss a Muslim while they’re doing harm to your society…I don’t know if you’re a sheep or a fifth columnist.

    • Look at these comments. Nobody understands you except the jury, O.J.

      It depends what the question is.

  • Sid Falco

    One of them dead, the other one banged up. A win win situation.

  • tom_billesley

    Mamadou is a West African version of Mohammed. If he’d been late, he’d have had to arrange a stoning for the women.

  • Hard Little Machine

    NYC courts LOVE to prosecute these cases to demonstrate how fair they are. I bet this guy is convicted and sees some prison time. Once Nash was in the elevator the DA will say there was no longer a threat and Diallo killed Nash out of vengeance.

  • roccolore

    You would think that liberals would be rallying around the man who stopped a rapist.

    • Blacksmith

      Only if it was a white rapist.

    Can you say jury nullification for 100$ Alex?
