I’ve done martial arts too Corey, no way I’d have just stood there watching. That’s just disgusting. Heck, perhaps even shaming the crowd into doing something might have worked, at least on some.
There was a time when I saw a fight that I wanted to intervene in and didn’t. I was in a shopping mall and a man grabbed a women who’d been running away from him (I had my back to them and didn’t see all that) and then was punching and kicking her and screaming that she’d taken his money (sounded like a relationship gone sour). Unfortunately, I was 6 or 7 months pregnant with my first child at the time, and wouldn’t have been much help. I was waddling off to find a police officer or security guard when one of the shop owners came out and hauled him off her. There were plenty of people (who weren’t pregnant or old) who just stood there and gaped though.
