Bathia_Mapes: Mrbogey: Bathia_Mapes: He forced the children into a closet and kept them there until the police showed up. In many states that's considered kidnapping, or false imprisonment at the very least. You cannot legally do what this man did and it doesn't matter whether it involved children or adults.

I hope that's not true because if it is then society is doomed. How can you not not allow people to detain a criminal until police arrive? That's an awfully British way to defend criminality.

You know if the kids fled they'd deny involvement and then there's essentially a property crime with no firm evidence other than one eyewitness making a claim.

Looking at the photos of how they left the place I'd say there's likely a lot of physical evidence. You know, stuff like fingerprints on the cabinets, paint cans & hammers, possible shoe prints on the spilled paint used while vandalizing the place, etc. At the very least that would prove that the kids were in the house. And I doubt they could convince the police that they were allowed to be there.


What kind of fantasy world do you live in where cops take fingerprints for property crimes?

My god you're a farking idiot.

I wish people would read the thread before they lose their sh*t.

Doesn't sound like the guy did anything wrong.
And those parents should be ashamed of themselves.
Ashamed and out at least 12.500$ each.

theknuckler_33: I guess he should have just farking shot and killed them.


Nah, he should have killed the parents.

AndreMA: Seriously. In light of the damage and other evidence, if he'd gone there with a firearm to investigate a burglary, shot them all dead, and then claimed self-defense against hammer-wielding felons, most sane jurors would acquit if it ever made it to trial.

The kids are lucky to be alive.


As long as he hit them in the front.

Never ascribe to trolling that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

He was arrested because the parents complained so the police have to respond to the complaint but once this reaches the prosecutor's desk I'm sure charges will be dropped.

/unless one of the little shaits is related to the prosecutor or some other weird small town justice thing

Infernalist: Speaking as a father, if my kids did something this farking retarded, I'd still kick the living shiat out of any guy who locks em in a closet.

And then I'd beat them within an inch of their lives.

It's all about priorities.  You're not a cop, you're not a judge, you don't get to lock my kids up.


That's funny.  It'll be even more funny when you wake up handcuffed to a hospital bed tough guy. Keep on "keepin' it REAL, Yo!"

That's why you shoot intruders in the face.

Police officers do not have to arrest someone every time there is a complaint.  I could call and say my next door neighbor is a mass murderer, but if there isn't any evidence, they aren't going to arrest him.

In this case, I think the guy will get off when it gets to court, assuming it makes it that far, and I think there is a good chance it will get dropped before it reaches the courtroom.  But he has to go hire an attorney *now*.  Not later, not after he is sitting in court and realizes "Oh, they are really going to follow up on this".  He has to do it now.
