It seems that Maryland do-gooders have no fear in apprehending bank robbers as long as the robber is unarmed.
Now, what would the outcome have been if the robber had a gun? No such citizen bravery would have been seen. And what would have been the outcome if the robber was armed, but so were the citizens? I would imagine that, considering that this story is coming from NBC4 in Washington, that the author would be castigating the same citizens for being "vigilantes."
Tell me I'm wrong.
