27-The fact someone would suggest not to help someone in need or turn your back on a wrong that's being done. All because you don't want any liability? I just lost even more hope for the human race.

Next time op, just mind your business. Who cares if this kid got away with thirteen dollars worth of merchandise? Now you're dealing with a more serious crime than the kid commited in the first place.

90, the OP's situation in the exactly the reason why I lost faith in humanity. Help someone and it just might bite you in the ass like it happened to OP. I also foresee a big fat law suit in OP's future...

So you would be admitting to attempted murder, potentially killing someone over a retail theft is NOT a justifiable reason to potential kill someone, because a retail theft is NOT putting anyone's life in danger.

I don't know what it is in Florida but if OP tried to assist the catching of a crimal he still would be arrested or charged. Here in Toronto if you try to do a citizen arrest while being a "normal" citizen you get charged with assault.

It's actually kind of understandable. If the kid was just stealing then that's a non-violent crime, and OP used a potentially lethal force (the vehicle) to try and stop him. It's not fair, of course, but I can kind of see how it makes sense.

I don't agree with it, but I think you would have been fine if you didn't hit the kid. If you just would have tried grabbing him, you probably would have been okay. You didn't need to hit him.

Maybe it was one of those prank shows where they set up a situation and make a fool out of the unsuspectng public. In that case, giving the thief the people's elbow was not the solution.
