I read it so often that it is shameful to believe that cops feel this way.
Frustrated by numerous auto thefts in his neighborhood, a football coach took matters into his own hands when thieves tried to steal his truck, violently ripping one of them from a getaway car before calling policePause for a moment of applause.
The coach grabbed a young man from inside the getaway vehicle as it began to pull away.
"The window was down just a little bit, so I ripped the window out, it shatters all over the ground," Cavallon said. "I try to pull him out of the car and the seat belt gets in the way, so I open up the car door, and as the guy's driving the get away car away, I yank him out of the car, throw him to the ground, pick him up, slam him on the hood of my truck, and just held him there."
The comment is the standard "Don't take the law into your own hands" that pisses me off everytime I read it.
Seattle Police Officer Rich Pruitt gladly took the 20-year-old, but encouraged others not to emulate Cavallon.Sheep are not supposed to fight back I guess.
"Running outside, and taking on multiple suspects, I would advise against," Pruitt said "In this case, it did work out, and he was able to catch one of the bad guys."
