An unusual crime situation documented by Chicago photographer Mike Anzaldi. Anzaldi narrates a short slide show at chicagonow.com.
Note that the situation evokes a kneejerk "how could he just stand there" response from one of the commenters. As I've written elsewhere, a very common reaction to photojournalism.

Featured Comment by Stan B.: "As someone not physically impressive by any means, but who has had to perform more restraints on emotionally disturbed junior high students (many larger and heavier than himself) than he cares to remember, there are a few things which this does bring to mind. First off, as for pure energy expended, it's often easier to fight someone than to restrain them. Bearing that in mind, when a person continues to resist in a standing restraint, bring it down horizontal where one can exert greater control and keep all concerned considerably safer. A good leg sweep is best, even easier with someone assisting. Immobilize the person's hands and feet—with pressure, not punches. And by no means let a third party get close and antagonize the person you're trying to calm down by yelling at him!
"Interestingly, without the narrative, quite a number of widely differing scenarios could have been constructed from those photos...."
