[ The idea that the “ends justify the means” is the same logic Hitler used to justify murdering millions during WWII. It implies, for example, that it is acceptable to abuse and murder other people if such actions are (subjectively) deemed the “greater good” for the greatest number of people. It is the logic of hell. ]
Chief Apologizes To Bystanders Detained During Suspect Search
FBI Releases ID Of Suspect
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The FBI has confirmed the man arrested in connection to a bank robbery in Aurora is the suspect they were looking for and acted alone.
The suspect has been identified as Christian Paetsch, 45, of Centennial.
The Wells Fargo at Chambers and Hampden was robbed just before closing time on Saturday. Shortly afterwards police shut down the intersection of Buckley and Iliff just southeast of the bank, corralling nearly two dozen cars in search for the suspect.
Police Chief Daniel Oates on Monday apologized to the innocent bystanders that got caught up in the search for the suspect. Oates also said the ends justify the means since the suspect was caught.
About 19 vehicles were stopped Saturday afternoon for about two hours.
Oates would not discuss the tracking technology used, but called it a “virtual certainty” that the suspect was among the 40 people stopped and handcuffed.
