I would NOT do what this kid did because I am neither qualified, nor willing to enter a combat situation, with a weapon. - ICF

-------------

I get that. And agree that many or most people would choose not to intervene in a situation where they put themselves at risk. If that is your decision, it should be respected.

But where I part company with you is when you condemn others who make a different choice and put themselves at risk to protect fellow citizens. They have just as much of a right to provide help as you do to not to. People willing to dive in and help others in peril should be admired. Shame on you for denigrating what is a noble and legal act.
