Shoving a child was uncalled for. The adult should act like one, not lose his temper and act like a child.
Bratty boys bothering adults has gone on since the stone age. It is a pain to deal with, but you don’t deal with it through physical violence. The adult was an idiot. He is lucky if he does not get convicted for assault.
the writer shouldn’t confuse disciplining a child with beating one up.
Lots of crass talk from internet commandos on this thread. It is sickening.
I grew up on Long Island. There were plenty of punk asses that needed a good beat down from adults. I have no doubt this might be one of them.
I see a lot of folks here I admire who are going to disagree with me taking up for you
Ive got five kids 11-29 and last three are boys ages 11 15 and 18
And Ive whipped all of them...real spankings and they would be unlikely to do these things
But...I know its one of those buts that erases past three sentences
Its not appropriate for a 39 year old man to push down a 12 year old and cower over him like in that pic.....in my day youd grab the kid and take him home for his folks to beat him
I sure dont agree its ok to shoot the kid....as some suggest
Ive wanted to smack errant kids that werent mine but thankfully never did
But if the kids were committing crimes then charge them too
Where this stuff gets fuzzy is when the juvenile delinquent is 16-17.
Ive actually had an issue where my 13 year old fought a 17 year old five years ago and drew some blood but ultimately lost and took lumps
I was pissed I wanted to beat the snot out of the kid...we found him...I resisted...one of my buddies wife is 30 year old blonde PMOTM bartender here in Franklin...it happened here and she found the boy on the square the next night and humiliated him in front of large peer group
Shes Baywatch hot and southern Missouri rural raised...farm girl..justice was served
And my son gained legend status that not only suited him well but helped his little brothers in local schools too
Careful that Wade ***s little brother.....hes a maniac......fought an MMA fighter who was 25 when he was in middle school....legends tend to grow and get embellished..lol
This stuff is complicated today and just poor parenting
Why did you bring up a Baywatch comparison with no photo?
I just actually watched the video and whilethis kid is prolly a misbehaving I raised kid
That was not appropriate for a 39 year old to do to a 12 year old no way
Sorry folks...no way absolutely no way
I wouldnt do that to my own kids even if highly pissed off and lord knows Ive wanted to hit them in the mouth
A 39 year old man cant come from behind. 12 year old and knock them to the pavement and then cower over them threatening them
And now the miscreants daddy looks gearing to sue
The fault lies with miscreants daddy and you can see plainly..theres a northern white trash thing going on here....this aint Sagaponack
Im glad folks are taking up for the guy hopefully hell come out ok but I disagree with what he did..
He was mad I know how that feels but if he did that to my kid and I saw wed be on
Wouldnt be no talking....man fight
It is possible nobody knows what went on here.
The older man knew what was happening from down the street and I presume in his house, and came running to get involved. Notice also he was this enraged his wife was being video’d by a twelve year old.
If your wife was in a confrontation down the street of any kind, right now, what are the chances you would know? Would you care if a Kid was cell phoning their interaction? Would you care that much?
None of this is significant to anybody now. Nobody knows. But I suspect in ten years, maybe after Trump deals with it, everyone here, even those who think the older guy was wrong, and especially those who think he was right, will all see this very differently, and realize they were missing something huge.
Or at least they will see the possibility that nothing was as they thought.
How did the guy know? And why was their video’ing her so bad?
Wife and kids. So its even worse.
Sue, did you bother to read the article before reacting and posting, or just the headline?
“The brat threw a snake at his wife .
Read what the brat did.”
Threw a snake IN the car, with children in the car.
The 12-year-old hooligan. He’ll be cooling his heels in big-boy lockup 10 years from now, and the taxpayers will be footing the bill for his upkeep. The kid’s a bad seed.
All the local news programs ran a video showing the evil man shoving a poor defenseless boy, no mention of the other side of the story, FAKE NEWS AT ITS BEST.
This is why the government is now the enemy of the people. Instead of arresting the delinquent kid, the neighbor is arrested and charged.
Never trust a police officer. They are just cogs of the state and they are willingly to perform the work of enforcing unjust laws in return for a paycheck.
Oh Blue House Sue, what a wonderful arm chair quarterback assessment. /sarc I wish on you that such a group of kids are unleashed on your neighborhood so we can see what you would do.
This thread kills me. If there was a stand-alone video of a 12 year old delinquent acting like this, virtually all Freepers would comment “ someone needs to knock that kid on his ass”.
Someone stands up and knocks the kid on his ass, and it’s suddenly “ no reason to ever lay hands on a “child”.
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.
It is your kind of thinking that makes little hoodlums like these boys. Both the father and the kids need a thorough thrashing.
You know this boy’s family can get sued too? Throwing things at their cars, and constant harassment is probably good grounds for it.
It does take a real man....to keep himself from actually striking this little bastard like he so richly deserves.
I have had the misfortune of having to deal with children like this...and their misbegotten parents.
In my case, I ejected the child from a baseball team because he was a PITA and generally disruptive.
I’m “kid size”, that 12 year old is probably bigger than I am. I will beat the cr*p out of kid if warranted ... and then the parents.
I’d hear the guy out, find out what my kid did...then I’d shove my kid to the ground and beat his butt.
What that kid did was very seriously wrong. What if that kid did that to a woman who was related to an MS13 member; that kid might have had his head cut off. That kid was lucky that all that happened to him was that he was shoved and his phone broken.
