Well done guys

In a change from my ‘200 Weeks Scum of the Week Award’, I’d like to highlight a ‘Hero of the Week’, or rather two heroes of the week who spotted two armed men robbing a bookmakers in Surrey this week.

They chose to intervene & chased the robbers from the scene. The unnamed men managed to retrieve a revolver from the suspects. A DS from Surrey Police said: “Two very brave men gave chase after the suspects and managed to retrieve vital evidence from them which is currently undergoing forensic analysis. I would like to stress that I do not recommend members of the public tackle these type of criminals, as officers from Surrey Police are trained to a very high level in dealing with criminals safely.”

Hmm, I was trained to stay well away from armed robbers, preferably a few streets away & wait for the arrival of armed officers, if any were available. It’s not even as if we can stop people even when we are armed.
