Citizen Arrest

Kudos to the patrons of the Plaza Tavern for their quick action on Wednesday night following the fatal stabbing of Juan Bernal. While the stabbing was sudden and therefore probably not preventable, bystanders chased down the perps and caught one of them, ultimately leading to two arrests.

Maybe we all need to take back the night. If bystanders had tackled some of those drunk assholes who kicked in windows on State Street on Halloween a few years ago, maybe Mayor Cheese Whiz wouldn't have ruined everything with snow fences and ticketed admission.
