    I don`t know. I think the angry screaming guy is really the hero here. He was so angry. And screamy.

    if it were the cop holding him down it`d be title "Police brutalize man for walking near a park"

    F`ing right! I have a daughter that is only a few years older then this. If some creep came anywhere near her, the cops would have been picking up a dead guy instead of a criminal.

    I think the truck driver should sue the person holding the camera for endangering his life.

    I`m kidding!

    I`m just so skeptical, especially if no one saw anything. Kids are terrible at giving testimony. She could even be making it all up, kids do that crap. I bet it`s just some random guy who was talking to a kid and things went extremely wrong.

    Can`t nobody hold us down? It would have been nice to see what was in his bag. All the tools of a pedo perhaps.Kidnapping is punishable by five years to life in prison.

    Yes the guy looked dirty and creepy, but the child didn`t seem bothered. "Is that t.v.?" sounded a little too excited.

    Though I will admit, people don`t plead to god when they havn`t done anything wrong. You know what I mean? I can translate that for you if you don`t. "Please god don`t let this happen" means "please god don`t let me get busted and go to jail where I`ll be raped repeatedly for being a child predator"

    EgalM: Many people plea to God under stress, that have done nothing wrong.

    This guy is likely guilty, but you can`t use "pleading to God" as some sort of lie or guilt detector.

    They should have first arrested the person filming the story, then dealt with the kidnapper. As we all know you aren`t supposed to film cops since that is the most egregious sin in Merica.

    Sacramento, California.. and they want to cut out 80 sworn officers in Sac. alone.. There will be more "Vigilante justice" as time goes on. That guy is lucky the people didn`t beat him in to a bloody pulp.

    What bothers me is that they didn`t turn off their trucks... I mean, I`m not an environmentalist or anything, but I could barely hear what they were saying.

    His t-shirt says, "CAN`T NOBODY HOLD US DOWN," and yet this guy was holding him down. That`s ironic.

    This was 7 years ago. Does anyone know what actually happened? Presumably there was an investigation, since the USA hasn`t yet followed the wishes of some of the people here and completely done away with the entire concept of law and order and replaced it with everyone free to vent their bloodlust on anyone that anyone says is guilty of anything. For some strange reason, the people running the USA think that lynch mobs are no substitute for a legal system.

    Poor little girl! Standing there while the adults talk to the cops...
    But it looks like she`s a tough little cookie! "He touched me right THERE!" "Eeeew"! Well, it sounds funny, too bad it`s true.

    I`m glad the bad guy got caught, I hope he rots in jail forever, really I do.

    Why not just TAKE the backpack off before cuffing him.. I mean, it`s right there in front of you!! Seemed like more trouble to take the time to cut it off

    @DarkMonkey: The goal of the cop was to get the situation under control as quickly as possible, which meant getting those cuffs on with no delay. He`d just arrived on the scene and for all he knew, the man was high on PCP and had a knife hidden on him. People sometimes snap when they realize they are about to be handcuffed and make a sudden struggle or a run for it. Exposing everyone on the scene to two or three seconds of additional risk--to avoid harming a ratty old backpack--would not have been worth it, in my opinion.

    You two may be eager to ditch law and order in favour of summary execution without trial by anyone who likes that sort of thing, but that says more about you than me. Sadly, it appears that you`re more normal than I am. Personally, I`m glad that governments still disagree with those who favour murdering anyone accused of anything without bothering with a trial first. There are far too many people around nowadays who would have been right at home during the witch-hunting time and it`s worrying that their views are normal enough to be spewed onto the net at every opportunity with hardly anyone objecting.
