The police often rely on citizens and society at large when they’re trying to make their arrests. Police officers can’t see everything or be everywhere at once. Plenty of civilians can help them prevent crimes all the time. The heroic bus driver depicted in this video received an alert about a kidnapper on the loose, and was able to identify the kidnapper and the victim. He managed to use some clever misdirection in order to properly identify both parties. From there, he was able to alert the right authorities.
This video helps demonstrate the value of quick thinking in a tough situation. It also helps show that people are often put in positions to be heroes when they least suspect it. People like the kidnapper in this video can’t hide as easily in a world that is increasingly connected. An inspiring and entertaining video like this one would definitely be a big hit on Facebook.
