Very very brave for a witness to chase after armed robbers. I am surprised that the police dispatcher encouraged her to continue this pursuit.

Huge thanks to the witness for her remarkable bravery. So relieved nobody was physically injured and that these criminals are off the streets.

I hope if these 3 are found guilty and sentenced they are given the absolute maximum sentence for each crime they are found guilty of. There is a special place in hell for people who commit crimes like these in the midst of a global pandemic.
