OK, I watched the now viral Central Park video. People do and say terrible things when they are afraid. It is clear what the video shows, nothing before or after. I was trained and taught that you control a situation by refusing to give in to your fear. Clearly the gentleman was controlling what was happening.
The way I look at it, he had a number of choices. Do what he did which resulted in this woman’s life is now in shambles. I now this man’s life may have been ruined also, but it was not. Just on an intuitive front maybe a small hand of compassion for a young woman so obliviously in a crisis. Maybe a gentle word or two to help bring her back from the brink.
