NY man who caught four boys vandalizing home is charged after locking them in closet until police arrived

CLYDE, N.Y. — A New York man who says he caught four boys vandalizing his father-in-law's home has been charged with child endangerment after corralling them in a closet until police arrived.

Jesse Daniels was charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child after authorities say he interrupted the vandalism at the empty home in the Wayne County village of Clyde.

Daniels tells WHEC-TV in Rochester he heard pounding June 8 and went to investigate while his wife called 911.

He says he found four boys, ages 8 and 10, inside with hammers. He says he took a hammer from one, then stuck the boys in a closet until officers arrived.

Their parents say Daniels handled the boys roughly.

Isn't that to bad it could of been worse.

REF;"Their parents say Daniels handled the boys roughly."

Hard working people can't even protect what they worked hard to get it's a crying shame. What if the shoe was on the other foot?

So what's wrong with this? At least they didn't get away and tax payers had to spend more money on a stupid investigation into who it was that did it. "KISS" This man should be awarded not prosecuted. I say good for him great job. Hell I'd even would of had the punks in hand cuffs for the cops. Mo

Inmates in the making, It sounds like they are on the right path to being "wards of the state".

Seems to me the whiny parents are looking to make a fuss and pave the way for their darling little brats to get rewarded for what they did and the parents can sue this man for protecting his own property in a civil suit. These parents should prosecuted for their children's crimes. Nasty little thugs.

I would say Daniel’s did the right thing. So what if he may have threatened them with a hammer. If that is what it took to get them corralled up.
I think a contractor should be hired to repair all the damages and the parents should have to pay the bill. Maybe next time they will keep better track of what their kids are doing.
That is what’s wrong with this country. People are not being healed accountable for there actions.
Next you are gonna hear its the village of Clyde’s fault because there is nothing for these kids to do.

This is now making national headlines and is front page MSN news. On a personal note these kids ages 8 - 10....wow ... just wow, where were the parents? Roughly they say....odd I would think roughly would have been far far worse than coraling them up untill the cops arrived.

Didn't this happen in the evening? What were little kids doing out, if this is so, without supervision at night?

These parents are garbage. Teach the kids a lesson now so they straighten up. This wasn't minor childhood mischief.

I predict that they will use the "adjourn in contemplation of dismisal" disposition on his arrest. At least I think that is what they should do.

As far as the kids, the parents are for sure legally responsible for the damage and could be ordered to pay restitution. Depending on their circumstances the old saying "you can't get blood out of a stone" may apply here!

They probably told their parents as they picked up their hammers and paint that they were going next door to play!

I'm not quite sure where the endangerment comes into play. He was keeping them safe from himself! He probably wanted to whack them over the head with the hammer and teach them right from wrong. I'm sure it will be dismissed given the mitigating circumstances.

Daniels should get an award for his efforts to stop the criminals.

The parents of the criminals should be answering to child protective services.

Arresting this man is an absolute joke!! Arrest the parents of the delinquents!!!

This is when the internet is good for something. Now, if the people of America would unite like this again the tyranny of the fascist state of America, we could just as easily get on with our business of being A strong country again.

Hooray for you Mr. Daniels,

Good for Mr. Daniels. Criminals seem to be getting younger and younger. So many parents just want to Get the kids out of the house whether it be night or day, and just pay no more attention. TV shows glorify getting even and kids believe they should never be reprimanded for anything, so do whatever they think is fun.
