[WORLD CUP: Off the Post] Chris Kamara, a Sky Sports commentator who played once played for Swindon and Leeds United, chased down and tackled a suspected street robber in Rio de Janeiro. He then posted these photos on his Twitter account:

The 56-year-old Kamara said that the man had stolen a necklace from a male companion.

Kamara was later disappointed that he had to spend so much time at the police station, where he was told not to repeat such an action, as “a lot of these guys are armed.”

    He's 100% right to say that the police then make it more arduous on the good citizen who does the right thing. The police make the process of making a witness or do-gooder statement (always at the downtown police precinct, never at the place of the crime) inconvienient. Why? They hope to make it so inconvienient that the real citizen will choose to decline to make a statement or help finger the bad guy(s). Reason: Less paperwork. Here the police do this so they won't have to inprocess someone who needs, at a minimum, to be locked up for the night. In one word: Laziness. In several: Lack of professionalism.
