Good for him

April 22nd, 2008 | 1 Comment | Posted in webstuff

Allen Keita subdued a man who tried to break into his home.  Normally this isn’t so news worthy, but Mr Keita is legally blind.

“It’s pretty remarkable for anyone that’s blind to be able to defend themselves, let alone make an apprehension,” Lt. Jeff Duhamell said. “To be able to grab this guy and hold him down until police got there is pretty remarkable.”

I say ‘good for him’, he didn’t let a handicap stop him or turn him into a victim.  More people could learn from this kind of example.
