If you witnessed a crime happening right in front of you would you have the nerve to stop it? It's easy to say yes, but think about it. You'd have to be pretty brave to just jump in to try and thwart an evil-doer.
Recently, a hit-and-run suspect was caught on camera striking a bicyclist on a bridge in Pennsylvania. You've gotta watch how the would-be culprit was stopped by the quick thinking of a transit bus driver.
And check out how these other crime stoppers mustered up their nerve and made the split-second decision to answer the call of duty.
A teenage driver attempted to flee the scene of an accident after striking a cyclist on the Fahy Bridge in Pennsylvania. A bus driver takes action, but watch watch who else steps up to trap the teen and put a stop to the getaway.
A man leaped through a drive-through window at a Burger King attempting to steal money from the cash register. Watch how the surprised female clerk stands her ground and takes the suspect down.
A man attempting to rob a Los Angeles hotel didn't account for the MMA fighters that happened to be in the lobby. Watch how a broken hotel key played a role in stopping the assailant mid-getaway.
If the evil doer was intent on doing bad things to me, my family, or any defenseless soul, I'd be there. If the bad dude were trying to steal a parked car, had robbed a bank or was passing counterfeit $20s...I'd report it....but let the pro's handle it. I am definitely not going to war over a stolen car.

how come zimmerman isn't mentioned in this article?
Thanks for correcting that oversight...now go back to your nose picking.
Bernhard Goetz belongs here too.
Why are bikes allowed on that narrow stretch of highway? It seems unsafe.
Great fun running them down.
I was wondering the same thing. Sure the guy was speeding and was in the wrong, but still seems unsafe to have a bike there. If someone is distracted for a split second, even if not speeding, they could still hit the guy on the bike
Read the story – it's a bridge, a local city road crossing a river and the law makes illegal for the bike to be on the sidewalk lane
Ummm. because it's not about vigilantes?
If we all had guns, this would never happen.
how come zimmerman is considered a vigilante..
but batman is a hero?
Yes it is.
No, it's not, it's Bush's.
Lol......thanks for the laugh.
Why is the guy on the bike in the middle of the road when there is clearly a walk/bike path to the right he should of gotten cited. People on bikes need to obey the laws too.
You are right. They deserve what happens.
Bikes are allowed on local roads unless specified otherwise and this was a local road crossing a river, not a highway. Bikes are illegal on the sidewalk unless you are walking the bike – learn the law. The cyclist was perfectly obeying the law.
OK, Ruffie, I'm going to explain it to you...
Batman isn't real.
I know, I know, shocking, no?
But he isn't.
The case is still under investigation. Zimmerman is only considered vigilante by people who won't wait for the facts. The same thing happened to me, but I proved them all wrong.
Only in that you were injured during previous mugging, and you weren't going to be mugged again...and that you were aquitted of everything except a gun charge.
You went vigilante.
Admit it, and move on.
Nothing happened to you. You are a loser.
Everything happened to me. I am a winner.
I would of loved to see that haha
