Orlando Sentinel - Police said a would-be carjacker was beaten and left lying in an Orlando parking lot when he picked on the wrong victim Saturday afternoon. Lt. Arnold Alvarez said a witness called police about 4:30 p.m. Saturday, reporting that a man was approached by the suspect in a lot near Millenia Boulevard and West Oak Ridge Road. The suspect, later identified as 54-year-old Richard J. McCandles, demanded that the driver hand over his keys, police said. But investigators said McCandles made one critical mistake — he selected a target who was bigger than him...After beating McCandles up, the driver got into his car and drove off, Alvarez said. Officers said they arrived to find the McCandles lying on the ground.
Have to love this guy, just a great American, pitching in for his community during a tough financial time. Your average person? Probably just give away the car, call the police, bitch at their insurance company, end up costing the tax payers tons of money. An above average person? Take the perp down and hold him until police arrive, still clogging our court systems and wasting everyone's time.
This guy? Great American. Just going above and beyond the call of duty. Pummeled the shit out of the guy and just figured justice had been served and left it at that. No intentions of sticking around to press charges, if the cops want to handle it from there, fine, but if not that's also fine, he already got his. We need more American's like that in a time like this.
