The voyeurism in the U.S. has hit a new moral low with the level of crimes being committed on video. Too many people are focusing on becoming amateur cameramen and bullies rather than being helpful.
A Detroit woman by the name of Mercedes was caught, literally, ass out, on camera during a brawl at a Detroit Coney Island restaurant called Legends on West Davison on the westside of Detroit. Mercedes said that she and a friend walked into the restaurant and immediately, women she did not know, started talking about her.
It gets fuzzy as to who threw the first lick at Mercedes, but a video captured them in a brawl with several women on top of her and her bare bottom exposed along with her breasts. The super sugar bear that came charging out of nowhere and fell on top of her had ripped underwear and her bare behind exposed as well.
Yes! It was a catastrophe and all of these women looked ridiculous, but where were the authorities? Well, an EMS truck and fire truck are shown arriving at the scene, but they never provided any medical assistance to the women fighting, nor did the firemen leave the truck to attempt to break up the fight. Mercedes was interviewed by Fox 2 saying:
“The ambulance and the fire trucks were right there in the midst of the fight,” Mercedes said. “Not one time did anyone jump out of the car. My whole thing is you don’t even have to break it up. If you’re not going to break it up, why didn’t you come to anyone’s aid? That’s the thing. Like why? What are you there for?”
“They were out there blowing their horns.”
“We’re women. No one had any guns. No one had any knives. Clearly you could see there were no weapons but a heel. You’ve got these big guys working for the city putting out fires and saving people[‘s] lives.”
It’s a certainty that the firefighters and EMS workers could not ensure there were not any weapons involved, but another problem that we’ve grown to accept is the late response of the police in the ‘hood. So much so, that it has become a running joke. But these problems are not Detroit’s alone. This is happening all over the country. The breakdown of our society is apparent whenever those paid to enforce the laws and protect the people become spectators and allow for mayhem to prevail? This is absurd!
We should not stand for it! Because no matter who is at fault for this fight, the morality of those involved and those taping the incident is at an all-time low. At one point, a man even places his foot on Mercedes back. A man? Or should I say a boy dressed up like a man. He could’ve stepped in, along with the other boys standing around laughing, and stopped the whole thing. But I guess that’s where we are now.
Check out the report and get angry! Demand that Detroit, and your city, do better!
