Good news from the streets...

With the hood rats tearing up their cities, threatening cops and even celebrating when officers go down in the line of duty, it's good to hear some show of support for the cop on the beat.
Armed Citizen Stops Suspect’s Furious Assault on a Cop

On Wednesday, an armed citizen drew his gun and intervened to save an Oklahoma City police officer who gotten separated from his fellow officer during a foot chase and was allegedly being savagely beaten by a burglary suspect...

...According to News 9, Rookie Officer Adam Eller and field training officer Sgt. Michael Lambert” responded to a burglary call, then became separated while chasing suspect Jermaine Williams on foot.

Eller was able to corner Williams in a driveway, only to have Williams allegedly fight instead of comply with arrest orders. During the fight Williams “was able to take Eller’s police baton and then proceeded to strike him over the head somewhere between six and 12 times.”

As the fight continued an armed citizen approached the two with his gun drawn. He told the suspect he was going to shoot if he did not stop hitting the officer. Williams complied.

Williams was taken into custody and booked into jail. Officer Eller was rushed “to OU Medical Center with serious injuries, but was released on Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery.”

The name of the citizen who intervened to save the officer has not been released.
Officer Williams, all of our wishes for a quick and full recovery, Oklahoma City needs you on the streets. And to the citizen who helped that cop, thank you even more. With YouTube showing people video taping cops in fights rather than helping, it's good to know we can count one someone like you.
