It did not happen. We have the security video from SEPTA that shows that was not the true narrative," he said.

While there is no action on reigning in the gun epidemic/passing heavy gun control, only a fool would intervene in any such scenario. Unless that person wants to cease existing for all time from a blink-of-an-eye gunshot from yet another mentally ill conservative gun fetishist.

The video are all over net. Now your saying it never happened. Be sure to install security cameras in vehicles and stations in each public transportation system so that such incidents will not be repeated twice. In such a situation, citizens are forced to use their own cars a lot. Amen Prosecutor ≠ Decider of truth

Well...they didn't do enough. - страна бездушных, алчных урод.в (-только личная нажива). 'callously'...

Charges unlikely for riders who saw Philadelphia train rapePHILADELPHIA (AP) — Prosecutors pursuing the case against a man accused of raping a woman on a commuter train last week don’t anticipate charging fellow passengers for not intervening, a spokesperson for the suburban Philadelphia district attorney said. I am disgusted that they did nothing. Shame on them. Change, people! Their names should be released to the public... That's too bad they won't or can't charge them but at least they could publicly thank them by name as I understand the video evidence is valuable to the investigation
