(I know, the headline misspelled thieves.)
They didn’t expect to be surrounded by about six customers with guns raised.
One customer was standing in front of the car, yelling at the alleged thieves to get out.
“He won’t shoot, run him over,” one of the suspects reportedly said.
The driver pulled forward, causing the man confronting him to land on the hood, court papers say.
Another customer shot at the driver’s side front tire, according to documents. A third fired twice at the rear tire.
Well done. They should be given recognition for upstanding citizenship. But…
The Police in Marysville are looking to find the armed citizens who fired the shots that flattened the suspects tires.
The armed citizens are, with considerable justification, refusing to get involved further. These citizens should be found. They should be applauded. They should be celebrated.
But I doubt that’s why police in Washington State want them.
