I’m surprised that any San Francisco newspaper would give this story such neutral-to-positive coverage. Armed husband stops suspected car thief:
At 8:13 a.m., a woman called police to report her car had been stolen from the driveway of her home in the Coffey Park area of Santa Rosa when she had left it running to warm it up.
The woman’s husband jumped into another car to look for the stolen vehicle, found it near Coffey Park and chased it, police said.
Outside the park, the husband blocked the stolen car’s path and confronted the driver, police said. The suspect, Shawn Anthony Elder, a 34-year-old Santa Rosa transient, reportedly ran from the car and into the park as the husband chased him.
There, the husband confronted the suspect at gunpoint and had him lie on the ground. Police officers then arrested Elder.
Elder was booked into the Sonoma County Jail on charges of vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools, a felon in possession of ammunition and a violation of parole warrant.
