"After reading “Nightmare on the 36 Bus” by Brian McGrory, I began to wonder if David felt any guilt because he did not help Sherrice. This is because the article mentions the fact that Auclair went to help but saw that people were giving him weird stares and he sat back down and “It's a decision he's regretted ever since”. Maybe David Cash truly didn't become an upstander because he truly was scared to get involved, we’ll probably never know, but either way it’s painful to think that he was not able to put his doubts aside to help Sherrice."
I also wonder whether David Cash feels at all guilty about his lack of action in this situation. If he did, it certainly didn't sound like it in the interview clip. I think the things he said in that interview definitely make it even more difficult than it already is for someone to try and empathize with him and from his perspective. I wonder if he did seem like he felt guilty about the situation and said something more thoughtful or empathetic in that interview if it may change how people see the situation.
