Woman being beaten in restaurant...what would you do? (Merged)
I received this in an e-mail as having occurred in Baltimore (which means for most of us a firearm would likely not have been available in case we got involved and all of a sudden the 'hood came rushing though the door):

Woman being beaten in restaurant...what would you do?
There are lots of posts and replies I've read on this site and others about whether or not to get involved in someone else's troubles. The best answer is usually "depends" followed by 'what if' or 'but if' or 'did they this or did they that'. In this format, a public forum, we have the luxury of being able to think it through dispassionately and logically, weighing our options and judging the consequences of our actions or inaction. Real life just ain't that pretty, as I think most of us know.

Read the original story then watch the video then read the updates and the link to more updates and some of the comments by other readers.
This is one human being being brutally attacked by two other human beings, no weapons beyond what God gives us. Ignore issues of race, gender, size and even what led to it in the first place. Please note what "good witness" looks like, there are lots of them in this video (including the guy shooting the video). I'm pretty sure I couldn't stand by and be a good witness in this case, especially if the incident took place here in Texas.
So, what would you do if this happened in your neighborhood fast food joint and you came upon it?
