“NY man who says 4 kids vandalized home is charged
CLYDE, N.Y. (AP) — A 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 arraigned on 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, midway between Rochester and Syracuse.
Daniels, 53, told WHAM-TV in Rochester that he heard pounding coming from the home next door the night of June 8. The house is empty while Daniels renovates it for his father-in-law.
Daniels said he went to investigate while his wife called 911. He said he found four boys, ages 8 and 10, inside with hammers. He took a hammer from one, then stuck the boys in a closet until officers arrived, he said.”

Endangering the welfare of children, BULLSHIT! If they are old enough to vandalise to this extent, they got a whole lot less than they deserve, and a lot more than the pussy-footing justice system will mete out.
Even if the accusations of threatening the kids are true, they got off lightly.
That is the opinion of a vandal (me) who at 8 years old broke a window and got his ears boxed, then taken home so that his father boxed his ears again!
No police, just boxed ears, twice, that did the trick! I never busted a window again.
