No Lives Matter
Would I have personally stepped in? Yes, but I have the training, and most of the time I am armed. I would not recommend your average citizen jump into a brawl.

No Lives Matter
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Quite right. Most security guards are present purely for liability reasons, and aren't really supposed to "do" anything.
If they do, their employer will hang them out to dry so quick their head will spin. "Mr. So-and-so was not supposed to intervene or take action, so any damages caused by him is not the responsibility of Guards-R-Us."

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
