That said, I agree, even if it wasn't violence outright, "what about my career?" is just effed up and as I laid out, at least do SOMETHING other than what was done, right then and there to save that kid.
I hear you. I have reacted the same way for family. Even had to get tackled by four friends so I wouldn't beat a guy's head in with a tire iron for hitting a stray dog with his car. I'm pretty sure I know how I will react but you can never be sure.
Shock can do strange things to people.
The guy that saw it all should at least lose his job. A freakin' disgrace. Don't know how he sleeps at night.
