From the article, the heroic neighbor could very well HAVE been shot...by the cops! (No dogs were injured during this arrest/s)
True, and that’s always been one of my concerns in a Good Samaritan action, how to make sure the authorities know I’m the good guy when they arrive on the scene. Like say there’s a guy running around campus with an AR 15 ultramatic 150 clip shotgun taking out students, and I pop my baby glock out of, well, somewhere, and take him down, and the police arrive just then to see me standing there with the smoking gun and some poor kid lying on the ground. Could I get shot? I’m guessing yes. So what then? Play dead? I don’t know. I haven’t got that part of the scenario worked out.
