May 09–A group of Good Samaritans helped two Tampa police officers restrain a man who was resisting arrest, and it was caught on video.

Surveillance video obtained by ABC showed two officers struggling to get a man in handcuffs at a bus station, and the man shoving the two officers to the ground.

That is, until a man comes up and puts the suspect in a bear hug. He also gets help from three other men who saw the incident unfold.

From the story:

"But shortly after they came to the officer’s aid, one man — a Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) employee — was investigated for his actions by his employers, according to ABC Action News.

Tim Martin, a HART transit supervisor who helped the officers, got a letter from his employers saying he was under investigation and could be disciplined for a “communication gap,” according to ABC Action News."


No good deed, etc.

Agreed.  If I'm ever in the situation of needing a cop, fireman, EMT, etc. I *want* it to be a physically fit man. 
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.

Well, hiya Roosgirl! LTNS!!!
Have you been gone, or have we been haunting opposite ends of this place?

Great to see you. And you're right of course... I am 6'3" 275lbs at my fighting weight, and no 130 pound girl is gonna drag my butt out of a burning building. Heck, it would take two or three like me, and fairly determined too, to get the job done.

Some things the ladies are better at... some things men. It ain't hard to imagine.

I haven't really been gone.  I have needed a break after the election.  But, I've been mostly just reading and not commenting except here and there. :)
