One bank clerk got fired if i recall correctly for chasing down a bank robber (because that was at risk to his life, nothing the banks want their employees to do). But this was a girl who could have benefitted (perhaps here, nothing definite) from a few words of intervention.
Sadly in the USA , calling the cops wouldve resulted in some very scared cops coming over and at the very very least tasering her. OR in an extreme situation if she came at them with what is perceived as a weapon (could only be a can of carnation milk) they would not have hesitated one new york second in shooting her multiple times (in fear of their own safety you see) and she would be one very dead girl.
Oh come on! Cops don't be shooting yogurt spilling girls dead in the States without asking any questions- yes, sometimes there is police over-reaction and when there is, that shit is all over the news. But generally they try to talk a person down before tasering/shooting them.
