Today was a very unusual day.
I work at a Subway/Exxon, (ghetto I know, it's on a main highway). That's just location of what's about to go down.
The town is a high class, upper class citizens.
After my what 8th hour working my shift alone, I noticed a truck with 4 mexican guys, and a mexican woman holding a baby, avg age is about 25-30 for
Well they all got out went into the gas station and came back.
Problem was (guessing because the truck's stolen) that they were locked out of the car, so the man looks around for a slim jim in the back, gets one
and after a minute passes can't get it, so he looks around at everyone.
Then get's really nervous and anxious, because knowing me, i'm just staring at them! Laughin mind you!
The man then goes and finds a hammer, and breaks the window.
The woman with the baby (who I believed was dating the man breaking the window. (note the sun is still out and cars are driving back and forth paying
no attention to the man who appears to be breaking into a car!) ) immediatley gets expression wise upset, and steadfast walks toward the man who has
begun to what I saw start to hot wire the car to make it start again, while everyone else is in the car, the woman seems to refuse to go with them.
Well when this happens and she's close to him, he grabs the baby from her, (this is where I get upset) she goes to take the baby back, and he kinda
pushes the baby toward her, and starts punchin her, (really hard!!!!) in the face and shoulder, then grabs her across him and thrusts her into the
This is when I have written down the license plate, and make model everything. He speeds off, while im on the phone with the police.
I find the glass and it has more information about the car specifically on the glass. I call the police back and tell them, they said they had traced
the truck, about 60 miles up and have handed the report to the next jurisdiction to handle the assault and possible auto theft.
I was interrogated by the police, kind fellow. He took photos of the glass and etc...
What really upsets me is, that at least 100 people had come and gone, and had seen this, yet anyone who saw it, immediately looked away and went on
with their business, I asked a man though.
If I should call the police about it, he told me not to, and that hopefully it'll resolve itself in the future.
Call me a snitch or whatever, but if I see a man punching a woman, especially with a baby, i'm going to do whatever to stop it!!!
Why am I the only person out of everyone to actually, i'll say it, man up, and try to stop an apparently innocent woman from being beaten!
If your worried about guantanomo inmates, and other things, why not worry about something that has happened right infront of you!!! Yet no attention
I'd like to point you to a online friends newest thread, which I found went great with my message.
WatcherinTheShadows thread. Watchers Tips.
I want to ask everyone, in my position, what would you have done.
Honestly what do you think you would've done, it's very easy to ignore it, because it doesn't involve you, and it's none of your business, but in
actuallity, I believe it is my business. Very much so. But what would you of done!
I've asked all my friends, they said they would of done what I did, but I've seen them in these situations, their itching to leave when something is
asked of them like that. It's also easy to make up excuses to why you shouldn't.
