Boris Johnson urged people to walk away if they see a crime committed rather than risk their own lives.And Boris is on the "right" in the UK. The irony of not understanding the connection between rising violence and the environment of impunity created by ensuring that no one will stop someone prone to it would be funny if not so tragic.
The London mayor admitted he would tell his own children to "look after themselves" rather than play Good Samaritan to a victim.
"But if I was giving advice to my kids and there was a bar brawl it would be to look after themselves."
"Everybody is shocked by the level of violence we are seeing, particularly towards young people, and we must all work as hard as we can to reverse this dreadful trend."
This is what happens when a society loses its focus on individual liberty and instead puts everything in the hand of gov'munt. Everything is the responsibility of gov'munt - even protecting old women from young thugs.
In the UK you literally cannot defend yourself even in your own home - and entire nation has been neutered into a mass of dependent slaves.
Good luck with all those home grown Islamists....
