    Well, he'd probably be in some serious trouble, now wouldn't he?

    As always, it should be assumed that people who choose to insert them self in third party conflicts do so at their own risk.

    I've got no problem with people intervening and detaining criminals. If that's what they want to do. As far as a lot of people are concerned, it's part of their civic duty.

    I have a very specific and narrow criteria for me to get involved in such situations. For others, it seems to be a much broader criteria.

    As long as everyone knows, they are responsible for their actions, everything is hunky dory.

    Someone wants to try and handcuff someone and ends up getting "gutted" by a bad guy's hidden knife... Well, he should have known better than to try something he wasn't capable of doing, eh?

    Everyone's entitled to their own stupid mistakes.

    I would merely echo what others have said. If you don't have training and experience, don't even try it.

    I have cuffed many, many people alone and with partners. It can go sideways in a heart beat.

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
