I was reading one of the lead articles on the front page of the Lansing State Journal (the Lansing, Mich. newspaper) this morning and noticed a mention of one of my high school classmates. Not a nice one, though.
The local prosecutor was quoted in the article as saying that what Lucas did (using ``reasonable force'' to stop a fleeing felon) was legal, and that he wouldn't be charged with anything. He did add that he ``didn't encourage'' other people to do the same thing, though.
There was a guy with the same name as Lucas Z. in my high school class, and it's not a common name, so I'm assuming it's the same guy. The newspaper also said he was 22, which is in the right range, too.
