I realize the police forces of this great nation have been continually criticized for their approach to crime in America. So, it is wonderful to report on an example of how police challenge the commission of crime in order to prevent a future potential massacre on innocent people. A sixteen year old, most probably headed toward a vicious murder or robbery was seen by police jaywalking. Now, any interested citizen understands that first criminals jaywalk, then they rob, and eventually wind up murdering or blowing up government buildings. Well, these cops spotted the potential violent crime, they challenged the potential perpetrator and demanded that he cease and desist from his crime.
Within moments, there were NINE cops at the scene of the crime. They wrestled this 150 pound the 150 pound potential criminal. Yes a bystander did attempt to halt capture of this terrorist. “That’s a kid! Don’t touch him. Leave him alone.” Mam, these officers were simply attempting to prevent another 9/11. Thank God we have police who will not allow jaywalking in this nation. Just another example of the doctrine of ‘broken windows.’ Stop the small crimes to prevent the more serious ones.
