If you saw a man and woman you thought were trying to break in to a vacant house next door what would you do?

Why put yourself in danger! Call the police and stay on the phone with them and tell them what you are witnessing. I don't know about you, but my life is way more valuable than some materialistic property that can & will be replaced. IT'S NOT WORTH IT! CALL THE POLICE, THEY ARE THERE TO "PROTECT & SERVE".

The thought of armed citizens confronting decent people going about their own business scares me. While the actions of the police in this case leaves a lot to be desired, I think firing the two deputies absent willful wrongdoing is a little too drastic. Certainly an official reprimand, the loss of vacation days, retraining and ethical awareness classes would be more appropriate. These firings will no doubt send a chilling effect through the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect us.
