Neighbors rush to manís defense after he is arrested for shoving a 12-year-old boy to the ground
Daily Mail ^ | 6/15/18 | Minyvonne Burke

* William Conte, 39, was caught on video shoving a 12-year-old boy to the ground

* The boy, Alex Anderson, said Conte's wife was following him and his friend

* Anderson is seen in the video calling the woman a 'low life' while his friend calls her a 'pedophile' and asks if she like 'taking pictures of little children'

* Conte, a father-of-two, was charged with criminal mischief and harassment

* Residents have stuck up for Conte and one neighbor said the kids were trying to throw a dead snake into his wife's car

A Long Island man was arrested for shoving a 12-year-old boy to the ground after he caught the child recording his wife on a cellphone.

Anderson then calls the woman a 'low life' seconds before a man charges at him shoving the boy to the ground. The man curses and smashes Anderson's cellphone on the ground as the boy yells for help.

Anderson's father, Christian, called Conte a 'coward' but residents in the area are sticking up for him.

According to neighbor Michael Shain, who lives across the street from where the incident happened, the kids were allegedly trying to throw a dead snake into the woman's car with her two kids inside.

'There's video of these kids running around with their bikes, stopping cars, getting in front of cars where they almost basically force you to hit them,' he said. 'These kid are not innocent by any means. They started it, and unfortunately, the father went to protect his wife and two small kids.'

Christian, however, says there is never a reason for an adult to put their hands on a child.

'Even if they throw a rock at the car, it doesn't justify beating up a child. It just doesn't,' he said.

The father of the boy is at fault here for not disciplining the little terror. I can't blame the neighbor for rushing to the defense of his family and knocking the bully down, bet it stops his brazen disrespect for adults in the future. The comments at the article are of the same opinion but this interview has them playing the victim of course:

“Even if they throw a rock at the car, it doesn’t justify beating up a child. It just doesn’t,’ he said.”

Shoving isn’t beating up. Not even close.

Imo, it’s the father that needs the beating.

I can’t imagine living in a neighborhood where you can be held up and accosted in the street by 12 year old’s on bikes. It’s surreal...if I had tried something like that in my youth the woman would have gotten out of her car and dragged my home to my parents by the ear where I’d be in for a justified beating.

People have died from having rocks thrown at their car. Would it finally be OK with her to mention to a kid who killed someone that throwing rocks is a bad thing? Or would that, in her learned opinion, be too harsh?

Never ever have witnesses when striking a kid.

Maybe, with the “father” he’s blessed with, it’s doubtful he’s learned anything, but perhaps he’ll smarten up anyway.

A takes a Real Man to shove a 12 year old child.

I suspect William Conte will experience similar actions when in the lock-up.

Good plan. Soon that won’t be possible in a land of a zillion cameras.

“Christian, however, says there is never a reason for an adult to put their hands on a child.”

Considering this article lists a case where it would be justified then that is just an insane statement. So the man can’t protect his own wife and children because the offender is child? Like I said- Insanity.

Christian [Christian Anderson?], however, says there is never a reason for an adult to put their hands on a child.

‘Even if they throw a rock at the car, it doesn’t justify beating up a child. It just doesn’t,’ he said.

OK buddy I’d give you one chance to discipline your little thug then I’d clean your clock.

I’m sure you’re right. It’s a shameful waste too, not only his parents but I’m sure the school as well has led him down a path to failure.

“People have died from having rocks thrown at their car.”

What exactly does having “rocks thrown at their car” have to do with this alleged incident?

Decades ago I had to deal with shithead kids running their dirtbikes up and down the street.

Got my bat and went and stood in the middle of the street. They peered out at me and decided that was it. No parents came to complain. I was a lot more young a friskier then.

Dunno quite what I would have done if one of the little bastards had taken another run.

Sometimes that man is called a parent. You do know that part of a parent's job is to teach feral animals to be responsible adults, don't you?

Sometimes you first have to get their full undivided attention.

It's not pretty, but it's a LOT prettier than waiting until they become something that's earned a jury of 12 of their peers and a long incarceration, or worse.

Throwing a rock at a moving vehicle is a felony, I believe.

I would support shooting the boy to death.
