what would you want someone to risk if it was you being attacked?
if you are worried about the legal aspects, and what is politically correct, rather what is moral and ethical to do, than you have moved to the side of the liberals.
personally, i would risk the legal consquences to save another person's life or welfare. damn the politicians and damn the lawyers!
i am not hero, but i'll be damned if i could just walk past and not do something if it were within my power to do so. i place too high a value on human life to just stand by and do nothing. a person could have died by the times the cops show up. stepping in may be the difference between life or death.
