Woman Rescued By Man On NYC Subway Is Criticizing How He Rescued Her: "The gun is a little extreme"
Stockholm syndrome describes the psychological condition of a victim who empathizes with their abuser. There is a similar phenomenon in politics where progressive voters protect the people whose policies arguably create more abusers as they empathize with their goals.
There is no denying that New York is run by a bunch of Second Amendment haters. Progressive voters have elected these people into office, and some argue that these goals not only disarm many citizens but subsequently increase crime.
Some voters suffer from this phenomenon so severely that nothing can get in the way of these aforementioned goals, even if it saves your life.
In a perfect example of this, a woman who was saved from an attack on a NYC subway by an armed man said she wishes he hadn't used a firearm in the process.
In case you need more recap, click here. But just to explain it a little bit, John Rote was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly shot a gun inside the subway to scare off a man attempting to rob a woman. Matthew Roesch allegedly told the woman he would steal her purse if she didn’t give him money, prompting Rote to fire two warning shots. This worked and fortunately, nobody was injured in the incident.
The woman spoke to The New York Post Friday and said, “I said, ‘I’m not going to give him any money’ and kept walking. He followed me. He kept demanding money and he said, ‘if you don’t give me money, I’m going to take your bag.’ I was trying to walk away from him, but he was following me and getting very close.”
The woman who did not want to be named, told The Post she believes the subway has become increasingly unsafe for riders due to the lack of serious punishments for repeat offenders.
“Of course, I am happy that that man tried to help me and that nobody was injured during this incident, but it’s scary to think that people are carrying guns around the city. I understand why people do it, they see it as their only means of protection,” the woman said.
One reason she may be throwing this man under the bus is that Stockholm syndrome is also marked by a negative attitude toward authorities who threaten the captor-captive relationship.
Roesch is known to police for hanging out in the subway and attempting to rob people, according to The Post.
“In this case, the man risked a lot to protect me, his safety, and the safety of other people on the platform. Yes, I do think he is a hero, but I don’t know, I would likely think him a bigger hero if he tried to help me without the gun. In my eyes, the gun is a little extreme. It was a very dangerous situation, anything could have happened,” she added.
The man saved her life. What is the point of trashing him? Had he not done what he had done, who knows what would have happened to her?
Most people understand why you don't want someone just randomly popping off rounds in a subway. But that is not what happened here and we all know it.
That said, it is shocking to see the lengths some Democrats will go just to virtue signal.
