    I like the editor's comments. Too many newspaper people are liberal kool-aid drinkers.

    This gives us all something to think about.

    To approach within 15 ft is pretty close to the action, gutsy move. Hate to second guess since I personally was not present to the assault,
    do any of the LE guys have any suggestions for a safe way to intervene in similar circumstance? After you call 911 naturally. To defend that woman's life from further harm I believe he would have been lawfully correct in engaging the perpetrator . Also, he came upon the assault in his vehicle; would you keep on the horn to draw further attention to the victim and run off the attacker before getting to close? Glad the criminal was captured to re-enter the revolving door penal system.

    There's not time to make decisions based on logic and what would be the best armchair second guessing. He did engage the perp, just not with deadly force. I think he acted properly and did what was necessary at his personal knowledge of the incident. He didn't know the perp was armed and his actions directly caused the perp to stop what he was doing, which is the law enforcement standard of action.

    He acted properly. No shots fired, action stopped, and the perp later taken into custody.
