I am proud of the civilians that helped the officer. However, it is a part of your civic duty as a citizen to help an officer when he is in need of help. I often say, "Don't fear death itself, fear what you didn't do before you meet Christ!"

An unspoken testimony to the idiocy of small-statured men ... and women ... as police officers. A woman would have been done for in an instant, or would have immediately used lethal force.

Wow Nancy! Your lack of faith in the smaller men and women police officers is appalling. How dare you assume a female officer would have just used lethal force. This is one instance where a taser would have helped. So glad that the public helped this officer prior to his backup arriving.
BTW Nancy... I am an Army Veteran and a retired Police Officer!
