192.  Zamudio used excellent judgement

"They already had a hold of him, and there was a lot of people around him, and I wasn't going to cause any more collatoral damage or scare anybody any further than they needed to be scared," he said. "I felt like I could hold him down and wait for police, and it wasn't my responsibility to end his life."

Joe Zamudio in the Geraldo Rivera interview

"I was at the store buying cigarettes," Zamudio said. "I was at the counter when I heard the gun shots. I put my hand on my gun and ran out."
Zamudio said another man - identified as 74-year-old Bill Badger - had already knocked Loughner to the ground. Zamudio said Loughner had already emptied his clip, so he "jumped on top of him."
