    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.

    Way to go. He was very brave, AND he got the picture.

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