Man, that's a real grey area. Leaning toward "he should not be in jail," but barely.

 

Like...if he just saw it happening and just blacked out and destroyed the dude, I don't think anyone would advise him to take the plea deal. But he had a lot of opportunities to...not do what he did.

It doesn't give any details about what the victim actually did besides try to enter the stall.  

 

If he chased the daughter into the restroom and then was pounding on the stall door and the father saw that taking place and acted to intervene, I'd say that's justifiable and no jail time at all.  If the victim just accidentally went into the wrong door like sometimes you do and then the father acted well after-the-fact when the daughter mentioned it then I'd say that is murder and this sentence is laughably inadequate.   

 

8 years seems really short for manslaughter.  That would lead me to believe there were some serious mitigating circumstances regarding the father's perceived threat to his daughter.  I wouldn't judge this as either too harsh or too lenient without more info.
