    Not where I come from. Any real man would have stepped into help. Their job be damned.

    The woman was on the ground holding her head in the first minute and no one stepped in to help.

    What happend to the men in this country?

    I would taking risking legal action against me, instead of risking feeling like I let a fellow human being down in a time of need. I guess it depends on how you prioritize things.

    Yeah. I would love to think I would do something like that but not sure. I am not the kind of person who sits back and watches peeps get beat without doing anything so am pretty sure I woulda done something. Just not sure what.

    I hope I never have to be in that kind of place and have to find out. It would be nice if the humanrace would stop sucking so bad and start treating each other with kindess and respect.

    It's hard to see but I find it very difficult to believe there were no men in the resturant.

    Some male weenies perhaps but obvioulsy not any men.

    I feel similarly, which is why I would still try to break it up, but just by denying the girls an easy target.

    I'm not aggressive, but I have been in my fair share of fights nonetheless and most of the time, if you just stand there and take it, the person simply doesn't know what to do.

    The only kind of confrontation I have been in has been in a hockey rink, so I wouldn't even attempt to fight fair, especially if they are bigger then me.

    I believe Redress is right when it comes to the policies of some stores and intervening in situations. You are most likely to hear about instances involving Wal-Mart employees taking down bad guys and then getting terminated. It happens quite often, I believe the employee's sense of rightand wrong overrides company policy in those cases. Is it more likely to cause more trouble and more people to get hurt?, so far, that has yet to be shown to be the case in my opinion.

    McDonald's attack victim speaks out - baltimoresun.com

    The incident was because she was transgender, and not because of race.
