DETROIT (AP) — A convenience store surveillance video shows each punch 91-year-old Leonard Sims took to the side of his face during a carjacking.
But the tape also caught a group of people standing only feet away who either didn’t see the attack or chose not to get involved.
There are several good reasons for this:
1. Most of them probably were afraid of being a victim themselves. After all, Mr. Bradley had a gun, and they presumably did not.
2. If there were any white people watching this crime, they probably also would not intervene, because of the scary legal implications that come with any sort of physical altercation between blacks and whites, even if the whites are defending themselves or someone else.
