The Age of the Bystander
#1
Should not the police have been called at the very least in these two incidences instead of just simply bystanding and video taping?




I saw the original facebook post of the following incident. The filmers just sat there and then posted it online.

Fucking ridiculous. Dude in the first video got arrested, and he'll get what he deserves on the inside. I did chuckle at his "WORLD STAR DAT, MY NIGGA" comment as he was walking out, but it looks like that's exactly what got his ass caught. I can understand not jumping in if you're the only one there and taking video, but there were several other people. Two of those dudes could have intervened, though I'm not familiar with NYC's subway security measures in terms of knife/firearm screening.

They've both been arrested. The white dude has been charged with three misdemeanors and the black dude, felonies.
White dude got fired from his job in less than 24 from the time that the video first posted. Publicly.

Old chick that the black dude kicked on was known (according to reports) to be throwed off and also known to threaten to cut people which is what he claimed that set him off.

My only problem with the "bystander" issue is number 2. Dude had a gun. If you ain't strapped, there's nothing you can do, son. NOTHING.

You run up to intervene, you get shot. I do think someone should have stopped the first dude, though. Crazy lady or not, you can't just go kicking old women in the head.

Lastly, the white dude was charged with misdemeanor assault because the woman threw the first punch, and she wasn't white. Had that been a white woman chances are very good he would have been hit with felony counts. If he was Black AND she was white, almost certainly.
