Florida not only allows ANY citizen to use force, up to and including lethal force to prevent certain "aggravated" felonies but it also allows same force to be used to detain the person to prevent escape YOU personally witness in the commission of same AF crimes...

So I see a guy light fire to a structure and I order him to stop for police to arrest him... If he attempts to flee, he can expect to become a plumbum sponge...

This being true up to a couple years ago... So before any of my fellow florida residents takes my info as gospel... I would research it to make sure it hasn't recently changed... The "legal aid" group in my county doesn't seem to have a current law library for regular citizens to peruse...
