Just got really curious the other day and read this: Citizen's arrest Definition : an arrest made not by a law officer but by any citizen who derives the authority to arrest from the fact of being a citizen Under common law, a citizen may make an arrest for any felony actually committed, or for a breach of the peace committed in his or her presence.
Technically then, across the country couldn't us as citizens arrest individual officers who are so blatantly disrupting the peace and brutalizing the people?
