  1. This woman is psychotic and needs to be put behind bars where she will not be a threat to the public. I hope he retained a lawyer for a civil suit for physical and emotional damages. At the very least the spectators should have separated the two instead of filming the beating. (Actual account, as told by victim and backed by video, stated he escaped on his own with the keys, while spectators just filmed.
