    Others saw the incident and telephoned for help but didn't intervene.

    Jackson described those who called as "good witnesses" and said calling authorities is what police advise for anyone witnessing a crime.

    Same here, call 911 first then use whatever is available to stop the attack.

    Kick him (repeatedly) in the jewels, kidneys and THEN call 911.........oh, and if you have a briefcase, a few shots to the face area, afterall, YOU were afraid for YOUR life, he was, after all, a violent sort of person........

    Personally, I'm all for the rape victims poking his eyes out so he can't find anyone to rape and more.

    Sure will make them easier to find.

    Yes Officer, he had blue eyes, And here they are!!!!!!!!!

    Hmm... Once upon a time I had a criminal law prof that had a better solution...

    Take them out back, nail their jewels to a stump and push them over backwards... Makes doing the deed a bit harder with no equipment.

    I have to agree with the above comments. I could not stand by and watch something like this without getting involved.

    The odds of a person being armed with a projectile weapon inside an airport concourse are pretty slim. Not impossible but slim. Ergo the odds are it's on like donkeykong mano a mano.

    Which is why a study tactical pen is another requirement for my daily carry. Not restricted anywhere, but sharp and strong enough to piece the skull if placed right.

    I couldn't stand idly by. There would be a hurting would-be rapist in that airport.
