The citizens of Seattle don't take kindly to crime in their city.

Pedestrians in downtown Seattle jumped into action on Friday after an armed thief robbed a jewelry store - with a group of bystanders stopping the suspect and holding the man down in a scary sidewalk melee in front of the Hotel MAX until police could arrive.

A hotel doorman was shot in the scuffle but the suspect was arrested and the loot he attempted to run off with was recovered.

These citizens are not vigilantes, as normally defined, but they fit the MSM definition of "people taking the law into their own hands". Citizens taking direct action, as expected in a civilized society.

Well,Yes. Nobody was using the jewelry at the tine, and he didn’t have any!

From the video, one can see the criminal’s pistol was jammed. That likely saved some lives.

Thanks for the post. Once again, we have to go to an overseas news source to read a story like this.

“From the video, one can see the criminal’s pistol was jammed. That likely saved some lives.”

Glocks are uber reliable but are prone to malfunction if limp wristed, which may have been the case during the melee.

He was likely told of all the Hope and Change with Obama which would fix everything.

Then he found out it was all lies and not only didn’t improve life, it actually got much worse.

How many of Obama’s lemmings/voters will actually wake up to reality and turn away from Obama in November?
