Police arrest goat accused of armed robbery

Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery.

Vigilantes seized the black and white goat, saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into an animal to escape after trying to steal a Mazda 323.

‘The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them.

‘However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat,’ Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed said.

‘We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody.

‘We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat,’ he said.

Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation.

Residents came to the police station to see the goat, photographed in one national newspaper on its knees next to a pile of straw.

I wonder what would happen if…

So, vigilante-ism is alive and well in Calhoun County. Seems one of our illustrious citizens by last name of Ferrell(?) decided to take it upon himself to make a CITIZEN’S ARREST of a kid who he knew the cops were looking for. This law abiding citizen allegedly ran the kid off the road with his vehicle, pulled a gun out and held the suspect at gunpoint until the cops got there and hauled the kid away… S-H-double “T”!!! If you or I did that we’d go straight to Flatwoods! Wreckless driving, endangering a minor, brandishing a weapon, kidnapping maybe…
And all that over some missing fishing poles, or so the story goes.
But wait. So this means that anybody could simply grab anyone who they think the cops might want to talk to, and whip out their gun (guess you better have a concealed weapon permit!!!) and force them to wait for the cops… Law says as long as you deliver the “prisoner” to them within a half hour it’s OK…

This sort of sets a precedent for this county doesn’t it? Not every day someone could pull this off without being arrested themselves. This place could get a lot more interesting if folks begin to see how THIS works…
