    Armed Citizen catches prison escapee

    I like how in the video it shows the swat team, the helicopters and vehicles, and in the end it was just another citizen with his own personal firearm who caught him.

    Wow,

    Good all the way around. Nice positive report putting a CCW holder in a good light. I wonder if the BG thought he was a cop because of the radio?

    Nice positive report, I like.
    Sundance says he bets the local police appreciated the help while they were tied up running radar.

    Ten days into a ninety-day sentence, and he's a trustee?

    Good catch on the part of the CCW holder; I hope some nitwit DA doesn't try to charge him with something....

    Tidbit of useless info:

    In Virginia, only a corrections officer is authorized to shoot a fleeing inmate.

    Sweet. No surprise he was a firefighter. I'm beginning to think more firefighters carry "off duty" than police. Of the 30 people in my summer physio class, there are four other guys, one of which is a VFF working on his medic. He keeps his pink card under his student ID too. (I have yet to figure out if he actually carries on campus.)

    I guess he put out that inmate's fiery escape...

    Instead of eight more weeks, he'll probably get eight more months!

    Stay armed...because you just never know...stay safe!
