VIDEO: 82-year-old man tackles suspect running from police
An 82-year-old former Puyallup High School football player got into a cross-body block to stop a suspect fleeing from police Friday afternoon in Longview, Wash.
Terry Miracle was weeding his garden when he heard a lot of commotion coming his way. Thats when he spotted a 27-year-old man running from the police.

Way to go Mr. Miracle!
Don’t screw with the elderly - they don’t have long to live, and they know it!
Nice post. This is a man from a different time in America, and who forgot to hesitate, unafraid. What a man!
82 and still doing what’s right. A 28 year year old today would probably knock an 82 year old to the ground trying run and hide.
I greatly admire what this old man did to help the lawmen, but it was not wise for him to become so fully identified, not at all wise. People with little brains and big egos will probably ‘want to talk to him’. Of course, this fine gentleman may already know that and may have decided not to press his ‘give a damn’ button. Praise and prayers, Merci BouCoup, Monsieur!!
The crap this guy will get in jail will be epic!!
“Dont screw with the elderly - they dont have long to live, and they know it!”
That has got to be one of the dumbest posts I’ve ever seen on FR.
