I'll Bite

Where and who do you propose to arrest under citizens arrest law.

There are many we can choose from. The big ones have armed security guards.

The only time I have heard of a citizens arrest holding up is someone following a drunk driver home and calling the cops. The cop walks up with the citizen and the citizen conducts the arrest under the cops supervision. So if the cop is not there I would only imagine the lone citizen would have the door slammed in his or her face.

It is a good idea, but going to need lots of Law enforcement to buy into it. No one is going to let the average citizen arrest them independently.

I didn't read your law links, but just like anything it requires a large following. It can happen, just need to continue to change the hearts and minds of the sheep.

I am with you, if we could make examples of some prominent criminals it would send a very strong message.
