CT Man Attacks Teens for Knocking Down Snowman

CT Man Attacks Teens for Knocking Down Snowman

I understand the time, effort, and love that goes into building a snowman.  Seems like a quick/fun thing to do but by the time you’re done, your snowman isn’t just a pile of snow… it’s almost the newest addition to your family. I’ve watched the excitement in my child’s eyes when a snowman is complete.  At the risk of sounding corny, it is very magical.  There’s a reason why we all love Frosty the Snowman.  Would you attack a person that you suspected harmed the newest member of your family?  When it’s put that way… I probably would.  Right?  That’s why I think 22-year-old James Knudsen from Clinton had every right to punch two teenagers in their face when he knocked down his snowman aka. the newest member of his family.

Knudsen built the snowman on his family’s property for the enjoyment of the neighboring children.  Then two kids, supposedly 16 and 17, came around and destroyed it.  Here’s the truth- these punk kids probably thought it was funny to knock down the snowman.  They probably deserved to get punished for destroying Frosty.  Maybe punching the kids in the face wasn’t the brightest idea, but I understand.    As far as I’m concerned, the two punk kids should have been charged for destroying private property.  If those two punks came onto your property and destroyed your garden gnome, wouldn’t you be upset? Is it different because a snowman is only a temporary work of art?

Knudsen was arrested is out on $5000 bond.  He is due back in court on March 7th.

Live on Frosty, live on.

    Obviously Dora you have never BUILT an igloo or snowman with your children. It takes time and a lot of effort, and by time I mean hours. It’s an accomplishment that you and your kids share “together” And please spare me the “they’re only kids crap” At 16 and 17yrs old you know right from wrong. Going on someone else property “wrong” Destroying something that doesn’t belong to you, and that someone else Built “very wrong” Do I condone violence?….Absolutely not, but I do believe in karma. LOL

    You think this man is justified in punching 2 teens in the face for knocking down a snowman?  REALLY?  These two teens are still just kids and kids are prone to stupid behavior because they lack the capacity to think through their behvior and what impact their behavior may have on others.  Adults, however, are supposed to have this capacity, and yet so many of them do not and we as a society, for whatever reason, expect kids to think and behave like us.  Isn’t it interesting just how often we think and behave like them.  And this post demonstrates that.  Sorry, my fiend… whoever you are that wrote this, PLEASE GET HELP!

    These teens should not have been on private property, and they should not have destroyed anything on that property.  If they want to invade someone’s personal property and cause damage, then they deserve to be punched.  They are just lucky that he didn’t have a gun.  I have no pity for them. You get back in life what you put into it, boys!   If Mr. Knudsen had called the police, they probably would have laughed at him. and nothing would have been done.

    The truth is, no one is allowed to mete out their own justice in the form of punching someone; that’s assault. Knudsen should have called the police and had the teens charged with vandalism.

    The problem with your reasoning is that you don’t know this kid. The kid has been a scumbag since high school and belongs in jail.
