PHILADELPHIA, Penn. – A 35 year-old concealed carrier permit holder saved a police officers life after he was attacked by several teens; and an approaching mob of about 40 more teens was actively advancing towards the injured officer.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood stated:
“There were 40 kids. If it wasn’t for the Good Samaritan stepping forward, he’d have been dead meat. There’s no doubt they would have attacked him.
As he breaks up the fight, he takes one kid and then the other jumps [on] him. Now he’s fighting two of them and he’s calling for an assist officer at the same time. There’s a crowd of 40 or 50 kids watching the fight, and they all move in towards the officer.”
Witnessing the officer in trouble, a concealed carrier sprung into action. He drew his handgun and kept the teens away from the officer until back-up could arrive.
“He had the gun in his hand, but he didn’t point it at the kids, he just told them to back off,” Chitwood continued. “If this guy didn’t come out and come to the aid of the officer, this officer would have had significant problems.”
Two police officers suffered physical injuries as they brought the situation under control, but it would’ve been much worse had it not been for the armed citizens heroic actions.
Two of the teens were charged with aggravated assault on police, riot, harassment, and several other related offenses. They’re currently being held at a Delaware County juvenile detention facility for Friday afternoons attack.
Any chances of CNN or MSNBC reporting on this one? NOT A CHANCE!
