A Matter Of Opinion

Don’t Mind Your Own Business

Citizens got involved today in CDA and helped rescue a woman in obvious peril. More details will be added to this story by tomorrow’s paper. But it made me wonder: Have true-crime dramas helped citizens become more bold when they see what might be crimes in progress? Have the shows expanded our awareness of some of the bad things that can happen to people? What kinds of suspicious behavior would you report?

Here’s part of the story:

A handcuffed woman being held against her will was rescued from a car on the west side of Lake Coeur d’Alene on Sunday evening after citizens called the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department.

A driver called police about 8:15 p.m. to report seeing the woman passenger handcuffed in a vehicle driving on Kidd Island Bay Road near Tall Pines Road. The driver tried to follow the vehicle but lost it near Loffs Bay Road.

In the meantime, a second person called 911 to tell them a friend called to say she was being held against her will.
