I just saw a story about an Atlanta woman who saw a policeman struggling with an suspect on the side of the road and grabbed her stun gun and went to his aid.
Tanisha Cross, who recently got a stun gun this past Christmas from her husband, never thought it would come in handy so soon.
Apparently Cross was headed to the Wal-Mart in Lithonia with her mom when she noticed a DeKalb County police officer being attacked by a suspect.
“I just told my mom pull over, … let’s try to help,” said Cross.
The 20-year-old mother kept her new stun gun in her diaper bag, just in case. She said that while others were gathering around watching what was happening, she sprung into action.
“I went straight for my kid’s diaper bag and I got it and asked it if he (the officer) wanted me to do it and he said, ‘Yea,’” said Cross.
The officer appeared to be having a hard time defending himself because the suspect had taken the officer’s radio and managed to rub some pepper spray in the officer’s face and eyes.
Giving the attacker a hefty jolt, Cross’ timing couldn’t have been better, stunning the suspect in his arms and legs.
The officer was able to regain his composure and fight back until a security guard came to their aid.
“He’s brave,” she said. “He did his best to keep him from his gun. He handled the situation very well. I was just glad I could help him,” said Cross.
Cross doesn’t consider herself a hero, although the officer appeciated the well timed and effective assistance.
“I’m just a bystander trying to help do the right thing,” said Cross.
I’ve got another interesting story about a little old lady in Florida who used a pepper spray on a guy trying to rob the convenience store she was in.
I will post it later on, but until then Be safe, Be prepared.
