Kind of stupid to chase an armed robber when you yourself are not armed...

but good on them either way!

This was Columbia County. It's a safe bet they were armed. Updates will probably reveal that they had a rope, too.

Kudo's to the citizens for taking action, they should be commended for simply acting, more than the general population can be expected to do.

The writer needs to go back to remedial grammar class. The first sentence makes it sound like the citizens helped with the robbery.


Kudos to those citizens!

There is a distinct lack of bruising.

And if the cops had taken any longer, they'd probably locked his dumb ass in their dog box and toted him straight to the jail.

Also possible that the perp tossed the weapon when he thought he was busted and took off running.

Still no guarantee he didn't have a second weapon, but if you've got 'backup' then it's not a completely dangerous decision to chase him down.

In England, would those citizens be in jail for getting involved rather than just letting the police handle it?

In the US, are there localities that would prosecute the three for unlawful imprisonment?

Sorry about the negative. Good pin, citizen trifecta!
