This is why we need to take the power back. What a drated up society we live in these days. Those kids should be thanking him, not pressing charges, for NOT bashing their heads in. How`s that -don`t discipline your kids lets hug the mean out of them- working for ya? This is the result of unruly, undisciplined kids and chicken-poo parenting. If that man was disciplining his kid, he would have said that kid got what he deserved.

What crap. If I were one of those kids, Mr. Daniels would have been the least of my worries. I would have to face my mother. I shudder to think about it now. That`s the way it was back in the day when the whole neighborhood raised the kids. My butt would have glowed red for a week.

Haha, this reminds me of a time when I was at work and these hooligan teens were vandalizing the nearby unsupervised "arcade", (I work in a mall and it was the next location over).

Security was called and all the teens were banned from the mall while unsupervised.

The one teen came back with his mommy and expected her to side with him. When security explained the situation, the mother turned against her son, calling him a dumbass, and saying that he deserved it.

Honestly those sh*tty kids deserved a lot more than being shoved in a closet. What a bunch of as*hole kids, and the fact that they are doing this at 8-10 years old is even worse...

Traumatized my ass. Parents just want money and/or "nobody is gonna teach my kids a lesson" attitude. You know, the mothers who start yelling at you when you stop their kids smashing a store window.

peakingo,

I disagree. A hostage is held until someone else fulfills a condition. Holding someone until the police arrive is a form of arrest. Details about the legalities vary by location, but it isn`t a hostage situation.

peakingo, he didn`t hold anybody hostage. He placed them under arrest.

[quote]New York Penal Law, sec. 35.30, titled "Justification; use of physical force in making an arrest or in preventing an escape", provides:

"4. A private person acting on his own account may use physical force, other than deadly physical force, upon another person when and to the extent that he reasonably believes such to be necessary to effect an arrest or to prevent the escape from custody of a person whom he reasonably believes to have committed an offense [in his presence] and who in fact has committed such offense; and [after giving due notice of the grounds for the arrest] he may use deadly physical force for such purpose when he reasonably believes such to be necessary to: [/quote]

He broke no law and the subsequent charges levied against him are pure BS. If he let those kids go their parents would have certainly claimed they didn`t do it.

He did everything right. Hold them for the police to take to jail and so the police can teach them a lesson. I really doubt being locked in a closet is that traumatic. These kids are just playing their parents to move the blame from themselves. Good for this guy. I hope he sues their parents for all damages and the charges against him are dropped.

Okay, so the parents are poobags, and they have poobag kids. Worthless dregs.

hostage: a person seized or held as security for the fulfillment of a condition.--that condition is waiting for police.

I don`t care how you want to splice it, these are still kids, sh.itty unsupervised kids whom he knows.

I know if these kids did this damage the last thing I`d be is calm and rational. With that said, it`s the wrong move. Obviously the police who have more detailed information than any of us agree.

Once again, why hold these kids hostage when he knows where they live? He over reacted and over stepped his legal rights. Just a fact that anyone can disagree with but still doesn`t take the fact that what he did was LEGALLY wrong.

Maybe their father is hoping that suing for damages will help pay for the damage they caused in the first place?

Draculya-"The closet was a step to far."

Handcuffs wouldn`t have been too far.

peakingo-"I seriously doubt he was calm and polite like he`s claiming."

Seeing as he didn`t beat the sh ! t out of the kids, he was polite enough. There is not requirement to be `calm and polite` to someone who`s just caused $40,000 in damages to your property.

peakingo-"It is not anyone`s role to hold hostage kids. "

You need to study the definition of the word `hostage`.

Nine o`clock at night and eight year old`s are out unsupervised? Bad parenting right there. That dad`s just looking for a way not to pay for the damage his kid did.

When I was that age even being discourteous to an adult had memorable consequences.

furryblob, I`ve got no time for kids or younger people in general, this generation is full of $hit.`

Since you are listed as 18-29 that must cut down your social circle quite a lot.

This guy was in the wrong. Especially if he knew the kids.

I seriously doubt he was calm and polite like he`s claiming.

It is not anyone`s role to hold hostage kids.

Glad they`re facing felony charges and glad he`s facing charges as well.

I remember when a friend caught two kids trying to break into his car. He roughed them up a bit and held them until the police showed up. The cops asked him what happened to the kids, my friend said "I don`t know, they must have been fighting each other, they looked like this when I found them." The officer said "That`s what we wanted to hear" and left. It was pretty funny. This story is just sad.

Very clever of the mumies and daddies. Sure we`ll drop the counter charges if you drop yours. And guess who pays the bill?

This man will be acquitted of all charges. He called the police and waited for them to arrive. He did not harm or endanger the children in any way. And the picture the kid drew? "The man took our hammer away" big effing deal. You destroyed the man`s property and you`re crying because he made you wait for the police to arrive? Little brats. Here`s the other thing - my oldest son is 8 years old. No way in hell would I allow him to play with three other kids his age unsupervised by any parent. Lock the FATHER up for "child endangerment" for letting them play in an empty house.

Either way what a joke. They vandalized this guys property. As long as he didn`t beat them who cares? They obviously aren`t getting the discipline they need from home.

"...the parents of the kids claim that Daniels went as far as to grab one of them by the throat; the boys, they claim, are traumatized by what unfolded."

Of course the kids are going to "claim" that. They think lying will get them out of trouble. They should have their asses beat.

"You guys are staying here until the police come", and stuffs them in a closet.

Sounds like forcible detainment. If you know who the kids are, you send them home, take pictures, call police and then talk to the parents.

The father wants the kids let go and then call police. Yeah, then he`ll claim his kid wasn`t there.

If I had done that to some man`s house when I was a kid I would have been working every day until the situation was set right. My father and mother would have seen to that.

So it is okay to shoot someone if they break into you house (Castle Law), but not okay to detain the little pr*cks? He should have shot them. And the dad too. Rotten apples didn`t fall to far from the tree there...

If they were shoplifting the store would restrain them until cops arrive. How is this different?

Bad parenting. Not because the kids vandalized, boys do stupid poo, but because he`s teaching his kids to be victims when they are the cause the situation they`re in.

Bad parenting. Bad law enforcement.
Next time, just shoot the kids and hide the bodies.

I hope the idiot father who pressed charges ends up paying the entire repair bill. He deserves it for being so clueless. His kids deserved much worse than they actually got.

These parents, quite frankly, are giving their kids the wrong message. They should be in court bargaining down the charges, not levying charges against the owner for his actions. Yes they are kids, but that doesn`t give them a pass to go smash other people`s property on impulse.

I know of a similar story...

An old co-worker of mine caught three 15 year olds breaking into a flat a few doors down from him. The kids already had a reputation for bad things in the area. He took out his phone and recorded it then phoned the police. His phone was confiscated for recording minors without permission and no charges was filed.

There needs to be stricter discipline on parents and their kids. Maybe by punishing the parents too if proved to be bad at raising, it will encourage them to look after their kids? Parenting courses, disallowing child benefits, ect...

Ridiculous. Kids and parents should all be locked in a damned closet for a couple of years, let out only to be beaten periodically.

Instead of the parent taking blame for doing a pooty job of raising his kids, he`s blaming this dude for helping discipline them.

Screw him!
