7. The attack was over in two seconds.

If you saw the video it was just bang bang and over. There wasnít even any time to react to it, let alone intervene. This is just cold logic here but what obligation were they under to do anything about it? It didnít happen in their place of work. Theyíre not cops, itís not their job to arrest anyone or stop anyone. That dude was obviously a psycho, who knows if he had a gun or another weapon? Everyone likes to think theyíd be this big hero but suppose that dude turned around and beat the shit out of them too or killed one of them? That was not a small dude and he was in quite a rage apparently. In my wild youth I might have jumped on the guy but Iím too old for that kind of bullshit now. Iím not getting my head beat in for anyone who isnít my family.

I think itís easy to say that they should have stopped the guy but most people want nothing to do with violence that doesnít involve them personally. Get it on video and call the cops.

I donít know what anyone was expected to do.
