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.
thamike: The kidnapping had already happened when he called the cops.
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.

theknuckler_33: I guess he should have just farking shot and killed them.
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.
Okieboy: Infernalist sure got a lot of bites/doubt he even has kids
Rubix^3: That's why you shoot intruders in the face.
relaxitsjustme: 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.
