There Was No Help

I was appalled to read the news about a teenage girl getting beaten up right beside the guards manning the Seattle bus tunnel. The incident happened last month and caused a stir when the incident was caught on the surveillance video.

How can these guards let the girl get beaten up right there infront of them? They were saying it’s against their contract but how can their conscience work that way? The girl went near them to avoid getting hurt thinking that she’d be safer with the guards around. Wrong! She got hurt bad and there was no help. Those guards were useless. What were they for there, I wonder? Just pose around and get seen my the surveillance so they can get paid?
