The "myth" of Citizen's Arrest is folly at best and could prove financially devastating or deadly at worst.
Leave the arresting to the "On Duty" LEO's, that's what they get paid for. Mas, Massad Ayoob, covered this in his book, In The Gravest Extreme. If you own a gun for defense I strongly suggest you buy and read that book. My copy is from the 1980's and I read it yearly. It's a little "dated" but it still holds true today.
All of which is going to happen if you shoot! He was such a good little boy.
If you have a really good reason to make a citizens arrest, then it must be one in which your life is in danger, which means you can fire in self-defense, which means there's no arrest. If it's not a life-threatening situation, then it's not a big deal.All of which is going to happen if you shoot! He was such a good little boy.
This will probably still be going well into 2009.Good God Almighty,

Like some vampire it is back from the dead and still got 50 different answers
that directly correlate to the 50 states giving loads, some or no rights
to a pistol packing do-gooder, who thinks their gun is the only way to effect anything
but a world of hurt that will prolly jail 'em for 10-20 and the BG walks in 3 then sues
the armed citizen for $10,000,000. Sheesh! :no:
Staying out of re-posting, so let's hear it all over again. :yu:
