    That's pretty shocking. I couldn't live with myself if I saw that happening and didn't help.

    Lesson for the day: Don't live in Chicago.
    Nations crumble from within when the citizenry asks of government those things which it might better provide for itself... Man is not free unless government is limited... As government expands, liberty contracts.

    Shameful.

    The whole situation is shameful.

    I, FOR ONE, could not stand idle while a man brutally attacked a woman. I wasn't raised that way. My momma taught me men don't hit women. Period. I'm a grown man and I hit back - try me.

    And for the school to refuse medical aid and shelter to a mother of a student? Goes against the tenants of basic human decency. Just shameful.

    I saw this mentioned on TTAG blog where they said it should have been a defensive gun situation. Now, considering my dislike with Chicago Public Schools and Chicago there is no way I would get involved. Here are my reasons;
    - the assailant is already above the law and crazy enough to be illegally armed
    - if I were to respond with deadly force I would be arrested and thrown in jail
    - I hate hate hate Chicago Public School systems and their idiotic unions

    I know, it's shameful and most of you would not agree with the above points. But this is what I believe Chicago is like and its people made it clear that they don't want to be involved. Now, in my neighborhood the guy would be restraint and thrown in jail before he could think of throwing his second punch.

    Bystander effect or were people just too busy recording it to put it on YouTube and their Facebook pages?

    There's no way in hell I could just sit there and watch that happen. Every one of them who were physically able to do something, and didn't, should be ashamed of their selves.

    It's probably a little of both coupled with a lack of compassion for others.

    The Bystander effect is very powerful though, that's why first responders sometimes have to give very specific directions to get people to break out of their "bystander" mode. You can't yell, "someone call 9-11" to a crowd that's standing around watching. You have to pick out someone and point/yell at them, "YOU! Call 9-11". If you don't, chances are that everyone will think the other person is going to act, in reality, NO ONE reacts.

    BUt, given that this happened in Chicago, I'm betting that a significant amout of people are more interested in getting it on Youtube.

    The school has NO excuse. Just pants-on-the-head dumb, I guess.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    He was obviously picking up a kid from the school too. That was a fellow school parent who just committed a brutal assault on another parent and fled on foot, in front of all the kids like it didn't even matter. I'm sure that school is a top performer seeing as how none of the parents appear to even know each other's names, much less helped a fellow parent being brutally beaten in front of the whole school. You can accuse the school for the way it acted (and you would be right, no doubt), but look what they're up against! You want them to teach in peace inside the walls when THAT kind of chaos is going on just outside, and from the parents no less?

    THAT is a near total breakdown of civil society. Fixing THAT cannot be done with the hammer of government force and the power of bureaucracy, yet these are the "solutions" we keep getting offered...

    Teaching at that school? Talk about a job for heroes and martyrs. It breaks ones heart. We're eating our children for the benefit of the adults.

    A city will reflect it's leadership.

    I fear it is spreading nationwide.

    I see it as a reflection in gun free societies entitlement societies. Not that a gun is appropriate for all situations but these societies tend to create the illusion that everything is governments job. Man beating a woman someone from government will take care of it. You step in and the assailant got an owie you should have let government handle that. At one time a woman being murdered in NY in front of many witnesses made national news and was my classes assignment in grade school. Today would it make more than a quick blurb?

    Jaeger brings up a good point (no surprise there). I admit I didn't even think about the guy being a parent of one of the kids. He certainly didn't care that the kids witnessed such an act, let alone even his own. If this is how the parent(s) act, one can only guess what the kids are like. It's a vicious cycle that's playing out everywhere in America.

    Sad and pathetic. Our society has become so self-absorbed and desensitized that we can no longer identify with other humans.

    May God have mercy on us because we are losing our way very fast.
