US Army Recruiter Catches Purse Snatcher
Sorry this happened in my own home town, but I am so very glad LOOONG time that we have US Army Staff Sergeant (E-6) Jason Pruitt here in Hanford, California on recruiting duty! It seems some bone-headed pudgy 18 year old decided he would snatch a ladies purse. The lady yelled for help as the suspect/shithead was grabbing it. Fortunately SSG Pruitt heard her plea and chased the teenager/dirtbag, who was heading past the recruiter's office. SSG Pruitt subdued the criminal and held him for police who took the would-be purse snatcher to jail. I love stories with a happy ending! Especially ones with real heroes! An old recruiting slogan in the 1980's was "There's something about a soldier". Yes there is! And it's something very good! Hanford Sentinel newspaper story HERE.
