    Good for the man helping out. Hopefully this event will lift his spirits and help give him the momentum and support to overcome his own challenges.

    Good for him!!! And for the officer, I can't believe a whole crowd just stands there and watches when the female officer's head is driven into a wall - numerous people CAN stop something like that without horrible risk since there's a lot of them and the BG was not showing a weapon. Instead, they wait until the Perp is reaching for the Officer's gun and leave it to but one poor homeless man to save the Officer - who now has to risk his life. What's the matter with some people? Have they no sense of responsibility for a human life on the line?

    Very good story: in but one incident it has a common-Hero AND a whole group that "don't want to get involved". The best and the worst....

    Raso said a small crowd watched as the woman pushed the officer against a wall and banged her head into it while the officer cried for help.

    “A law enforcement officer is saying, ‘help me, help me’ when there’s no one else around doing anything,” Raso said, explaining why he felt the need to act.
    What a shame. A small crowd just standing there watching the officer get her head bashed into a wall. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of them were pulling up the camera on their phones so they could have a "cool video" to upload onto YouTube.

    Kudos to this guy for stepping up and doing the right thing. No mention of why he's homeless, but it looks like he'll be getting assistance and hopefully he'll be able to get back on his feet.

    Good for the cop that Raso was there.

    But it seems to me that the cop should've been able to handle an unruly person. If she's on the beat alone, she ought to be able to help herself, or know her limitations well enough to know when to call for back up.

    Just strikes me as odd.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    They were just being good witnesses. I mean, THEY hadn't had a weapon of any kind directed at them... isn't that what we should do?

    good for him!!! it's sad that a group of people can watch an officer get attacked and not help. too bad those douchetards can't be publicly ridiculed and shamed.

    i'd assume she did call for backup, but who knows. i personally cant blame the officer for trying to stop the person from damaging property while she waits for assistance.

    That homeless man is a Stand up Guy. Good for him for doing the right thing. When he said his dad would be proud of him I think any dad would be proud of his kid for coming to the aid of another.
