You guys see the pic of the good guy? Black beret, Army Ranger. The BG sure did pick the wrong target!

I do think since he pulled and was threatened he should have put that animal down.

Before I get flamed, I know Rangers have tan berets. Bc of the man's age and how old the picture was, I'm assuming it was taken before 2000 when black was taken from Rangers and given to all of the Army.

Even the Today show gave it positive coverage.

Apparently the local PD told the guy he was pretty lucky. The clerk said "I think the other guy might have been a little luckier than me." Considering he could have just shot him I tend to agree.

No he was not a Ranger the flash on his Beret is not a Ranger Flash.
He was just a regular soldier.
The reason he didn't shoot the thief is because his gun was never pointed at him and that he did not feel threatened.
He showed great control over the situation.
