Re: Officer kills man who beat toddler to death near Modesto

Good article, Matty. I'd love to think I would take action, but there is no way to tell until you are in that situation. Hopefully none of us ever have to find out.

This story makes me want to cry a little, probably because I've got a 20 month old so it hits home when you hear the word "toddler."

But I'm with you. Unless the guy has a weapon, I swear to God I'd go down myself before I'd stand by and let this dude do that. I think I've said it before around here, I have a visceral rage type reaction when I see people getting hurt who don't deserve it. Unless I saw a weapon on him. But if I didn't, I'm taking my chances. If the guy beats my ass until the cops arrive at least it's not a poor little kid. Pain is temporary, death is not.

Maybe the witnesses were elderly or female? (I didn't read the article)

I can only imagine the pure shock of seeing something like this going down right in front of you. I'd like to think I would do something... but I can certainly understand people being frozen from the absolute shock of it.
