These young woman vigilantes are to be commanded for their actions. Although a dangerous outcome was avoided they were able to apprehend these two criminals. These guys will be the laughing stock of OCCC when the boys get a hold of this story, They must have been in terrible shape to be caught by 3 petite cosmetologist. Lucky that young girl encountered some real pussies instead of a 6ft,250lb harden criminal.

YOU GO GIRLS! I agree with Baby Boomer. These criminals will never live this down at OCCC, that is if the prosecutor doesn't cut a deal, and the judge doesn't slap them on the hand and turn them loose in our community.

a .44 magnum or a sawed-off 12-guage might be more effective

Good job. Are any of hair stylist available ? Looks like they had a lot of fun pursing those culprits.

I think the culprits will be the laughing stock while in confinement. But, because of the liberal judges...the car thieves will be back on the streets in no time. They'll get a slap on the wrist and be better with their craft when released. They'll probably get probation or for time served while waiting for trial.

Encourages people to be overly-brave and put themselves in danger. The next set of thieves won't be as wimpy as these guys. All for a minivan... Your lives are more important. Usually in stories like this you see a quote from police that say to not get involved.

I'm going to play devil's avocate here.

Leaving a vehicle running unattended is just plain stupid.

Risking you life over a mini-van is even more stupid.

All of this could have been avoided by turning the motor off and taking the keys.

I'm glad everything worked out.

Totally agree. Any law enforcement person would tell you that what these ladies did was plain old stupid. And, like you said, all for a minivan.

I saw this story on the news. These ladies are probably feeling all "empowered" and "on top of the world" right now. What they don't realize is that the guys could have easily pulled out a gun and blown their brains out. Again, all for a minivan...

Even a police officer would NOT have approached this van without his gun drawn because he knows that things can turn bad VERY quickly.

The thing that's scary is that if something like this happens again to any one of these ladies, chances are they will try to do the same thing. And, chances are, the outcome is gonna be very, very different.
