Citizens arrest....
« on: July 29, 2012, 07:08:12 PM »

Well last Wednesday was my one day off...worked 80+ hours this last
week.  Anyway I needed a new pair of sunglasses and though I'd give
Walmart a try...really hate going there but sometimes I do.

So I
decided to load my daughters into the wagon and cruise on down.  I
turned into the back entrance to the parking lot, which is shared by the
 Homedepot as well, and I hear a car alarm going off.  This in itself is
 not too strange but at this moment a sketchy character darts out in
front of me carrying a bag and looking around nervously.  I decide to
follow him through the parking lot slowly..I see him rummaging through
the bag as he was walking, and he kept looking back towards the car
alarm in the other lot.  He also tried to get into a couple other cars
during his circuit through the lot. 

He was nearing the far back
 corner of the lot, near where the walmart employees take there breaks,
when I hear a car coming that direction very quickly...motor racing,
tires squealing.  The guy looked back, freaked out, dropped the bag he
was caring and started to run.  A little ford ranger came racing up and a
 60 year old guy darted out and started after the guy.  At this point I
decided I needed to try and help get this guy.  SO I told the girls to
hold on and raced out of the walmart parking lot and tore up and around
the store to where I figured the two would be coming out. 

As I came racing up the street I told the girls to keep an eye open for the guy.  We saw the old guy winded on the sidewalk
and across the street is a big dirt lot where commercial trucks
park...we spotted the guy in between a couple trucks.  I came tearing
into the lot right in front of the trucks where he was, slammed on the
breaks and tossed the car into park and jumped out and ordered the guy
to stay right where he was and don't move.  Guess my 6'8" and 275 frame
made a bit of an impression because he put his hands up right away and
said he wouldn't move.

The guy was wearing a fanny type pack
around one should then down around his torso so I grabbed him by the
shirt and that strap and held him from behind until the cops arrived to
arrest him.  I didn't notice right away but he was wearing a big knife
on his right hip, and after the arrest the cops found a couple sticks of
 dynamite in his pack!!  Cops thanked me profusely for my help, and said
 they wish more people would take action to help stop these pieces of
low life trash.

It was a great feeling to catch this lowlife douche nozzle...small payback for the stuff the wife has had stolen from her car.  Kids were thrilled about all the action and stuff and said it was the best "Daddy Day" EVER!!

Guns don't scare me, but knives do.

Well doing the right thing sometimes involves taking a little personal risk...which is why more people don't do these kind of things...more concerned about "if" they might get hurt. 

A couple years ago now, I also stopped an idividual trying to abduct his own child from his wife.  Again I jumped into action with almost no thought of personal plight...all I knew was the guy was running with a kid  in his arms, and the woman was screaming that he had stole her baby.

Looking back now on the guys actions before I took him into custody, he was fiddling with the knife on his hip...which I didn't even register until later.  Guess he was contemplating if he should use it or not....guess he chose not to poke the bear.

Hey I don't even come close to resembling that remark....

I had an old timer come up to me on one of my deliveries...he asked how long I'd work for these guys..I told him 8 years...he looks at me at says, "Geez, how the heck are you not 600lbs..."

I meant to put a laughy behind that remark...no offense taken.  Good old caffeine...powering North America, and keeping me employed.....
