Two married off-duty police officers have been praised for thwarting an armed robbery during a date at a fast food restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.
1. Detective Chase McKeown and Officer Nicole McKeown of Elizabethtown Police Department were enjoying a weekly date night on Feb. 15 at a branch of Raising Cane's restaurant when they noticed something was wrong and sprung into action. If you are married, do you go on regular dates with your spouse?
2. A man wearing a surgical mask and black hooded sweater pulled low over his face can be seen in surveillance video released by Louisville Metro Police Department entering the popular fried chicken restaurant and appearing to threaten staff with a gun while pointing repeatedly at the cash register. Has an establishment near you ever been robbed?
3. The McKeowns can then be seen standing up at the same time from their back booth and brandishing their weapons while running through the restaurant toward the suspect. Do you think it was good that these off-duty officers were carrying their weapons while visiting this restaurant on their date?
4. The suspect, whom police identified as Justin Carter, is seen in the video running out of the restaurant, with the couple in pursuit. Carter made his first appearance in court related to the case Monday the 17th. Do you think Mr. Carter should get a lighter sentence since he wasn't successful in his robbery attempt?
5. The McKeowns chased Carter through downtown Louisville and arrested him with the help of local police officers, Louisville Metro Police Department said in a short statement on its Facebook page. Chase McKeown says that he and his wife try to prioritize teamwork in their relationship as well as their careers. The McKeowns haven't even been married a year yet and they've already had more excitement in their marriage than most do in 20 or 30 years. Do you hope this couple's marriage will last?
6. This establishment (fortunately) didn't prohibit the off-duty officers from carrying their firearms as customers. Do you think such a restriction would have prevented Mr. Carter from bringing his firearm inside (and therefore kept the robbery from taking place) as effectively as the officers who were able to put a stop to it?
