I cannot get the original video posted in Facebook embedded but the link should take you there if you wanna hear the very well thought out comments which I will basically repeat in written form and add my own 2 cents.
This is a stabbing out of Rotterdam where the ex-boyfriend stitched the woman seventy times. She survived. From the moment the video was started to the moment the witness finally geared enough testosterone to pull the attacker off the woman, a full minute and ten seconds passed. And I am not saying “get the rope and a good branch and let’s hang this bastard”, but you reckon several “somebodies” could go ahead and stand on top of this animal so he does not move or flee? I am sure some of them have seen a cop movie or something.
This was IMHO a clear case for third-party intervention. hell even them dutch figured that out. But if you are going to intervene, do so with decisiveness, aggressiveness and ruthlessness , and yes, I am quoting Col. Cooper’s Principles of Personal Defense again. With the long soccer tradition that Holland has, there is no excuse that nobody placed a well-aimed kick to the head of this bastard with several kicks for good measure to follow. Maybe is something in their laws that forbids them or punish them for getting involved, I really have no idea.
One of the comments from Active Self Protection mention that nobody was rendering aid to the attacked woman and that at least you should train for some basic First Aid. Even if you do not have your kit with you, some assistance in the form of what to do can make the difference (Lay down, bend your knees up) not only for the victim but also in case you end up injured and must take remedy.
Just another bit of reality to help us understand what might be out there and how to prepare for it.
