Would you assist a law enforcement officer who was struggling with a suspect?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 22, 2006
“I wouldn’t get physically involved, but I would call the police so they could send help.”
“It depends. If I saw that the suspect had hurt someone and really needed to be stopped, and I didn’t think the cop could handle it. But if I didn’t know the whole story, I would probably just stay away.”
“Yes, because I work with law enforcement every day. I would do whatever I could to make sure they stay safe.”
“No. It’s not my job, it’s not a safe situation and I don’t have the proper training to do something like that.”
