I don’t know what to make of this video. A woman accuses a man of following her into the 6 train, which may or may not be true. She proceeds to attack him physically. He responds with a kick. A rider records video of it all.

What’s not in question is how calmly a snack-eating man steps between the two and takes the situation down a notch. It’s amazing how a bit of even-handed confidence–or an iron-bound desire to finish one’s snack–can defuse a situation. [via Reddit]
