citizen's arrest of Bush et al is legal

Rob,
To clarify my advocation of the arrest of Bush et al.
From Blacks Law Dictionary:
citizen's arrest
: an arrest made not by a law officer but by any citizen who derives the authority to arrest from the fact of being a citizen
Note: Under common law, a citizen may make an arrest for any felony actually committed, or for a breach of the peace committed in his or her presence.

So the arrest of Bush et al is legal in precedent under common law.
