Armed Citizen Saves Cop—Again

posted on February 12, 2016

In an episode that seems to be occurring more and more in recent days, an armed citizen is being credited with saving the life of a police officer—this time in the Philadelphia area.

When an Upper Darby police officer was attempting to break up a fight between two youths after school near Upper Darby High School, he found himself attacked by both and surrounded by about 40 others prepared to join in. Thankfully for him, a man living in a nearby home saw what was happening, grabbed his handgun and held the mob at bay until other officers 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,” said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. "If this guy didn't come out and come to the aid of the officer, this officer would have had significant problems.

“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.”
