I understand some folks here have misgivings about jumping into an unknown situation when it may involve people whom they don't know the identity of, but when the identity isn't in question........ what would you do? I've seen several videos of people just standing around and taping the events while police officers where being assualted/harming. Said videos appear to be made more in the way of entertainment as opposed to proof or evidence of any type of crime. Now, in some cases it may not be prudent to interfere.....one's safety could be in jeopardy. And in such a case I don't think anyone could be taken to task over staying out of harms way. The situations I'm talking about are those in which the help of/from said onlookers versus their entertainment could make all the difference, especially concerning the officers safety. I'm not talking about trying to be a Arnold or Bruce sort of hero either, but simply a normal person trying to help another. What would set your parameters of such a thing? What would determine whether or not you assisted someone you knew to be a police officer in need of help....immediate help. Help that wasn't likely to place you in a position of being seriously harmed..................and so what if it was? Your thoughts?
