    Thumbs up News Photographer Tackles Fugitive!

    Haven't you ever wondered when watching news stories why the guy behind the camera does nothing while crimes are happening right in front of him?! I certainly have!! Glad to see this news photog didn't just stand by and go for the pics again!! Kudos to him!!!

    LEWISTON, Maine A Lewiston man being sought by police was apprehended Wednesday when he jumped from a third-floor balcony to a garage roof trying to escape officers pursuing him and was tackled by a newspaper photographer, authorities said.

    Wow, that is awesome! I know photographers are generally supposed to be neutral observers...but these are extenuating circumstances!
