This is way wrong. The guy locks them in a closet for their own protection while police arrive. Good choice. Parents say that he endangered the kids, how? Sounds like the parents are protecting their kids from the legal system. If he had let them go like the story suggested the kids would have said they didn't do it. The cops would have said they can't do anything because they wern't caught in the act and it would be their word against his. Charges should be dropped against the guy. I believe the owner of the property damaged could file a claim against the parents homeowner's insurance. The boy should be placed in a detention center for a period of six months and given community service.

Paul Bowler should be ashamed of himself.

I can tell you if I had tried to pull this crap when I was young, I would have been "traumatized" also, but it would have come from my parents holding me ACCOUNTABLE, not having them whine about the mean victim.

The parents of these children need to be charged with neglect and child abuse for letting their 8 and 10 year old kids run around unsupervised at night. The parents also need to pay for the damage. Drop all the charges against the gentleman who locked them in the closet and make the little brats apologize and pay for any attorney fees he has incurred. These parents are morons.
