Boston firefighters make citizens arrest

Curt Varone over at Fire Law has posted an interesting video from Boston. It should come as no surprise in this day and age that all of our actions will be caught on tape. Unfortunately, even if we’re doing our best the videos only catch part of the story. So it is with this incident where apparently a gentlemen thought a fire helmet would be a perfect accessory on Halloween night. As would be expected, the videographer only captured video of the firefighters apprehending the perpetrator.

According to Mr. Varone, the Boston firefighters were acting within the laws of Massachusetts during the arrest. Of course, the local media placed their own spin on the situation and is holding the firefighters to the fire on this one.

Check out the video for yourself and see what you think. Regardless of your opinion though, just remember that someone’s always watching.
