My younger brother is a crime magnet. Crime just finds him. Luckily for the law, he’s on their side.
This weekend he apprehended two shoplifters who hit the elderly greeter guy (who happened to be in a wheel chair!) at Wal-Mart when he tried to stop them from shoplifting. When my brother pulled the first shoplifter off the greeter he turned and hit my brother, then the second shoplifter started going at my brother as well. They struggled for a while then broke apart and shoplifter #1 pulled a knife. So my brother pulled his gun.
Apparently this caused a lady just shopping in the store to faint. She couldn’t understand why he would have a gun in Wal-Mart. To fight crime, that’s why!
My brother got the two shoplifters on the ground and then Wal-Mart security showed up. Then the police showed up. People were arrested. Everyone, except the miscreants, went home.
Lest you think this is a once-in-a-life-time kind of thing, it’s not. This is the sixth arrest he’s assisted in, just by living his normal everyday life, and he’s not a cop. He works in IT. So, next time your IT guy comes by to fix your computer, take a long hard look at him and remember, it might be more then software he’s good at!
And remember, always bring a gun to a knife fight.
