Today’s video is a special one – only because we don’t see this kind of interaction often.
It is an aftermath of a gun shooting, where bystanders stepped in and restrained the gunman together.
If only every crowd reacted this way at a criminal fleeing from the scene, there’d be a lot more robbers behind bars!
Unfortunately, we don’t get to see how the shoplifter was disarmed and restrained.
However, it is clear that he was simply overwhelmed by the many people willing to do what it takes to save the person that man was shooting at.
They’re holding him so tight he can barely move.
They immobilized the criminal completely, holding his head and neck was a particularly smart call!
Let’s just say that being saved by the crowd is a rare occurrence.
The trouble with bystanders is that far too often they simply observe and do nothing during an emergency.
But in precious few cases random passers-by help people in danger and stop criminals.
The video depicts just that, a bunch of people from the street working together to tackle and restrain a robber.
This should happen more often!
However tough, armed and dangerous he was, the gunman couldn’t do nothing against the group of people who united in a joint effort.
Thanks to them, the security guard who got shot avoided taking even more bullets, and the Seattle Police saved the time they would have spent running around looking for the guy.
Sure, being brave and being smart isn’t always compatible, but taking risks is sometimes necessary to save someone else’s life – or your own!
This goes to show that readiness to step in and take action is no less important than combat skills, and a few good Samaritans can help justice run its course.
So, once again, let’s take it up for teamwork!
