So where'd this happened exactly? In the Vons parking lot or that little mini ghetto strip of stores where the donut shop is? Thank god for the off duty deputy and i'm assuming the victim is ok as well. Must've scared the heck outta her having a shopping cart pushed into her. Doesn't get much more chicken shit than that. People are such idiots. Hopefully they get theres downtown and they're not overcrowded and releasing early again.

Everyone can learn from this story. You don't have to be a hero....just be a great witness. He didn't rush in there....he called, gave information, and let the uniform Deputies handle this. We all need to watch out for each other! Be safe!

Good job, Deputy! Nice to see some low-life scum get busted. I just hope they get some real time for their greed, too.

I love this kind of story. The criminals are caught red handed by a policeman who is off duty. He is a true public servant. Lee Baca, take notice, this is man you want to promote.

As a witness he had an advantage. He knew the number to call to capture the attention of deputies instantly.

For the rest of us, calling 911 is not so quick. They follow scripts that take a lot of time from the real business at hand of getting the police to take notice of a crime in progress. They want to take your name, address, license number, what make model and color of car you drive. If you say you think a house is being robbed, they take time to scold you and say the house is being burgularized.

If a civilian had seen this robbery in the story, the crooks would have been in San Bernadino before a beat cop got the call.

You don't know much do you. When you call 9 1 1 your address is on the screen if you call from a land line. Otherwise,(cell phone) they learn the location and, if available and depending on the priority of the incident, a unit is enroute while they ask for more details.

Yes, "depending on the priority of the incident" being the key qualifier there. A crime already committed is given low priority, especially since the woman was not in any clear and present danger. The woman should not have called 9-1-1 after the fact, since there was no emergency.

People like you waste resources and overtax our already burdened emergency dispatchers. Don't call 9-1-1 in this kind of situation.

Oh yeah! You are JUST the hero we need...NOT! A crook upholding the law for the rest of us? Nah! Go back into your box of ignorance and violence! We don't need your kind of help!!! Glad a skilled citizen was present and knew what to do. I pray that the victim is alright and will recover from this kind of violence and trauma inflicted on her by these three stooges who should spend a lot of time in the slammer for their violent acts!

But as a previous poster stated, he didn't do anything any other citizen couldn't have done. Let's look out for each other folks!
I will commend him as a member of the community, but not as a pig. However, I hate the sh_ itheads, such as those who pulled this, even more than the pigs!
I don't do it often, but I will raise a glass to you this weekend, Oinker!

You must have a good reason to hate Sheriffs. So tell us, what were you arrested for?
