"He's the only reason why they didn't empty the entire
store. What he did was outstanding," said one police officer about
an unidentified man who single-handedly put an end to looting at an
Atlanta, Georgia, shopping mall. When hundreds of young
revelers-turned-hoodlums ran wild and began ransacking and looting
businesses, the man jumped from his car with a shotgun, firing three
shots into the air. The thieves scattered and fled as the citizen
knocked stolen merchandise from some of their hands and held one
young crook for arriving police officers.
