Nice to see all those people standing around taking videos and photos on their phones doing absolutely nothing to try and help the situation..
You should hear the stories of people getting raped while witnesses just walk by and do nothing about it. It really sickens me how much your average person doesn't care about your average person.
They're a bit scared that they're going to get choked next.
Spot on. Sorta. People don't want to mess with the cops. If it was two civilians doing that I bet more people would of helped in some way
But cops/mall security? They'll get some [cabbage] infraction of disturbing the peace, stopping an officer from doing their job, and other stupid things they say.
Hell, I would be very afraid of the man choking someone on the floor, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't do anything about it.
If any of you have ever been in or seen a fight in school, you should know exactly what mentality I mean. "Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!" A lot of people enjoy when this kind of thing happens.
While you are right about that with the mentality of "people like this sort of thing", a school fight is more like two guys trying to solve a problem, Old West duel style without crying to the cops/school. Granted the problem was probably stupid to begin with, but, nonetheless. This incident was more like the Grand Authority vs. Innocent Civilian type of thing.
