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.
From the sounds of the articles, if he had let these boys go, the parents would have probably given them alibis and no charges would have been placed on the boys.
I find what this man did was no different than a kid getting caught shoplifting at the mall and being corralled into a 'closet size' security office.
I find it even more offensive that after the boys being caught and charged, that their parents told the police to go and arrest Jesse Daniels... AND THEY DID?!?! Sounds like these parents may be connected to someone of power or politics in that little town.
