Sometime early morning Friday a man was killed in downtown Raleigh. Apparently at the scene there were several police officers who simply stood by as the man died. In addition to the police, there were others present as well. According to reports, these bystanders actually tried to get involved, but as they attempted to make their way past the police they were arrested.

… is it simply a matter of perspective?
