He uses his CCW to stop a fleeing bank robber and the Detroit Police Chief gives him a certificate of appreciation!
None of the usual "citizens shouldn't get involved" bs. Kudos to this guy. If more people step up to the plate, crime will go down.

I agree that it is a good thing. However it seems to me this guy got lucky that he is not facing legal repercussions. In my state it is illegal to draw on someone unless you are in fear of great bodily harm. I hardly think that a man running away would fall into that catagory.
I LOVE ME SOME HK's!
RIP Mike, miss you buddy!
Yes, this is good but I would not have stepped up if the guy is running away. I will call 911 and follow at a safe distance if I am able and give as much info to dispatch.

In this town, In this day and age, I would be checking my SIX, every 2 seconds, looking for his buds
Good for him though.
They need to put the perp behind bars for life, as a habitual offender,,,
Get these scumbag, Knuckledraggers off our streets for good
Liberals are like Slinkies…Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
My first thought upon watching the video; Is his shirt untucked like that as some manner to be a cover garment for his gun & spare ammo?
Obviously not Detroit, but Utah just recently clarified the law books to allow CFP holders to draw their firearm in hopes to deescalate a bad situation. This is to take away pressure/doubt of legal repercussions such as a brandishing charge after the event.
Even with this new verbage, I still firmly believe that a firearm should not be cleared from the holster unless there is a viable threat to human life/well being.
I'm happy to see the gun climate is a healthy realtionship between Police Chief and CFP holders in Detroit.. My Brother in law is moving his family up there in the next few weeks.
Congrats to Mr. Farrow...
