Warning. This is brutal.
This is what an emasculated culture devolves into.
The thugs become the De Facto rulers of the city.
The guards will not protect you. The bystanders will do nothing, especially if there are guards their doing nothing. Guards in uniform. Guards looking all the world as if they are there to prevent this kind of savagery from taking place. Guards guarding nothing.
The victim of the attack in the video thought that the guards could protect her.
See: Girl, 3 men charged in tunnel attack
The 15-year-old girl who was beaten and robbed in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel as security personnel watched said she had headed straight for the guards because she thought they would help her.
"I went to the security and told them that these kids were trying to jump me," the girl wrote in a statement to King County sheriff's investigators. "I know that I am about to get jumped and I am hanging around the guards to try and get protection. ... I thought the security guards would defend me."
But the girl was wrong.
The guards were following "policy."
According to the Sheriff's Office and King County Metro, the guards followed policy by not intervening in the Jan. 28 attack. Instead, they alerted transit officials, who summoned police.
The attack has prompted Metro to discuss contract changes with Olympic Security Services, whose guards were in the tunnel during the attack. It also has sparked widespread anger at the guard policy and with the suspects accused of the attack and robbery.
It was policy? Policy to not intervene?
What kind of madness puts such a policy in place?
What kind of madness requires adverse publicity from a video like this being released to make a change to that policy?
Do you believe that if this video had not been released that any change would have been made to their "policy."
