Deputy U.S. marshal attacked on Allegheny River trail
A deputy U.S. marshal chased down a Spring Garden teenager after the teen pulled down her pants while she ran along a North Side trail, according to court documents released Wednesday.Chased him down and then beat his ass while waiting for backup. Well played, Marshal. Now, a few things to consider. This woman is a trained US Marshal, yet she did not injure the suspect. She ran him down and cornered him, and then he charged her, but fortunately she was able to subdue him.
Pittsburgh police said the marshal had Robert Flynn, 19, backed into a corner when they caught up with the pair Tuesday evening.
Honestly, she got lucky. He's a dumb kid. He towered over her - at 6'4" and (judging from his pic) 200+ pounds, had her significantly outclassed at 5'5" (and what I would imagine to be considerably lighter, if she's out jogging and was able to run him down). Had he really been malicious, or been able to get out of his own way, he could really have hurt her.
And yet there are those out there that think we should deal with someone twice our size with harsh language alone...
That is all.
