Re: Street justice: Bystanders drag subway 'pervert' off train, hold him for cops [youtube]

You're exactly right. It's chilling to think the crowd took this woman's word for it. Incidentally, this is why, when I'm standing on a crowded train, I hold the overhead railing with BOTH hands, so some emotionally disturbed woman doesn't accuse me of something crazy. Things like that DO happen. I once had a patient who was roughed up by a mob of angry onlookers for allegedly groping a woman. The kicker was, she was still on the scene when the cops arrived with us. The cop took one chef look at her, rolled his eyes, and told everyone ”Not again! She does this shot every week!” Turned out the woman was a certifiable macadamia. But an innocent man got the scare of his life! I never forgot that incident. That's when I adopted my ”hands in evidence” rule for crowded trains...
