    There is CCTV video of this incident, in the article.

    BBC News - Leeds betting office robber caught by customer

    If I put my pragmatic head on, then I would say that Martin Richardson was very lucky not to be killed, facing off an armed assailant with nothing but your hands and whatever is around you was foolish and dangerous.

    But I don't have my pragmatic head on today, I have my internet head on.

    THIS MAN IS AWESOME. His cast iron balls of steel would probably have deflected the bullets (if they were real) anyway!

    Go vigilantes!

    Some might argue that being a judo expert gave Richardson an edge of sorts, but I think that doesn't take away from his courageous feat at all.

    This happened in England? I hope he dosnt get arrested for assault.

    Also, yay vigilantism! I love it when an average Joe makes the cops look like tools.

    Pretty amazing he didn't get shot, given that he seemed to run in a straight line right at the guy.

    He musta gave the guy the Bullet-Tooth Tony speech as he waited for the cops.

    well, i guess this earns him a Chuck Norris Award.

    He's really lucky. The robber there had ample time to shoot him had the gun been real.

    Of course, off video, maybe the guy could tell it was a fake and knew he wasn't in danger of being shot.

    Or he just didn't think of it.

    Yeah, when you have an imminent danger of being pwned, you don't have time to think.

    This guy reminds me of that GMod thing.
