Good Guy With A Gun Saves Officer’s Life!

Breibarts is reporting that on February 5, 2016, an Upper Darby police officer’s life was saved by an individual with a Pennsylvania license to carry firearms.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said “there is no doubt they would have attacked” the officer without the armed citizen’s intervention

The background, as reported by Philly.com, is that the officer was breaking up a fight between two Upper Darby High School students–after school had let out for the day–and one of the students jumped the officer. Superintendent Chitwood said, “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.” At that point, an area resident with a license to carry saw the officer struggling and the crowd closing in, so he grabbed his gun and ran to the officer’s defense, until responding officers arrived.

This is another example of how a good guy with a gun can save lives.

    Prime example of all the misinformation the media puts out such as the Ferguson incident. Police officers only have a split decision to make a decision. With the negative press and constant investigations and prosecutions of police officers over every case now a days; they are now hesitating on brandishing their firearm and thus endangering themselves. “Damned if you do, damned if you don`t”.
