A Generation of Sheep

War hero Sid takes on gun thug at bookies | The Sun |News If you keep telling people that they should not get involved, eventually they will believe it.
Sid intervened as burly Henry Rockson, 30, walked in brandishing a pistol and demanded cash from two women behind the counter.

The pensioner barely hesitated and grabbed hooded Rockson. As they grappled, Sid shouted to the other customers — most much younger than him — “Give us a lift.”
Nine other men were in the shop - all younger than Mr. Bannister. No one came to his aid. He ended up needing stitches from being hit over the head.

If one other "man" hadn't been a sheep, they could have captured this guy. But the British no longer believe in self-defense. They are convinced it does not work (evidence to the contrary notwithstanding).
