As U.S. citizens, or illegal aliens, we all have the right – and the duty – to perform a citizen’s arrest when we see a crime, such as sexual assault. So the next time you see a man hug, kiss, or put his arm around a woman without receiving prior consent, you should place him under citizen’s arrest and make sure the authorities are notified.
If you can possibly get video evidence of the attack, it would help in prosecution. So when in public, please have your phones or other video cameras at the ready. You never know when one of these crimes might occur, but a place where men and women gather socially is a potential crime scene. I’m talking about parties, bars and nightclubs, and the like. With the holiday season upon us, look for a spike in assaults, and be ready!
