No, they wouldn't be in jail

You can use the reasonable force necessary to protect another citizen from injury and prevent the escape of a robbery suspect.

I simply don't buy the excuse that being a woman or elderly or having an older child with you prevents you from doing what is needed at the time. Where did we, as a society, misplace our backbones? Why are we so scared of "getting hurt?" Why are we incapable of running and chasing down the robbers? (Neither one of these two looks like a speed demon.)

Here's the bottom line: I wasn't there, I don't know who was in position and who could have done what. I only know that "not getting involved" PHYSICALLY, when you can, is inexcusable. Coming up with excuses for doing nothing is just another sign of our weakening society.
