It’s lovely to find that there are still stories about American self-sufficiency. The following story comes from a community in the Sierra foothills, one that is becoming a bit more gentrified, but that is still solid America, especially if you hang out at Hog shops:
A Placer County inmate is back in custody after several people chased him and tackled him to the ground until police arrived.
Forty-nine-year-old David Todd had emerged from a field with his orange jumpsuit drenched in water, arousing the suspicion of customers and staff at a Harley-Davidson shop.
According to one of the people who pursued Todd, one man had a pair of handcuffs, which were used to restrain the inmate.
Please note, too, that there was no ugly vigilantism here. Just citizens being aware and taking responsibility.
