The police are the public and the public are the police.
Outside a bank in Seattle, two men get in a fight. Both draw guns. One is seriously injured; the other tries to flee...
And runs into an IT nerd who works for a game design company. And legally carries a concealed gun. And handcuffs. And uses both to make a citizen's arrest.
"When we got here, the shooter was searched, in handcuffs and sitting down on the curb," said Sergeant John Urquhart that night.
