After the London stabbing incident, David Pethers has been dubbed a hero for taking action to help take down the man with a knife who began attacking people on the London Tube. Instead of letting it go to his head, however, Pethers is angry with all the other bystanders who were there and only took videos with their cellphones instead of jumping in to help.

While Pethers was simply trying to commute like everyone else, a knifeman, who is now a terror suspect after his actions during this London stabbing, tried to decapitate a victim on the Tube while shouting “This is for Syria!”

When the man’s shouts indicated that he was taking a stand for the terrorist activity going on in Syria, one witness to the London stabbing event shouted in response “You ain’t no Muslim, bruv.”

This phrase has stemmed a viral hashtag, #YouAintNoMuslimBruv, that both stands by true Muslims who “don’t try and kill innocent bystanders,” while simultaneously condemning the actions of terrorists everywhere.

Unable to stand by and let innocent people get hurt, David Pethers jumped to the rescue and, along with one other man, did his best to stop the knifeman. While these two people did what they could to help, though, most of the other bystanders either fled the scene or started recording the London stabbing event with their cameras.

According to a witness, the victim screamed “Help me, help me,” as he was beaten unconscious by the stabber.

Another witness, and the man who called the police when the London stabbing occurred, Salim Patel, said that the stabber “was sawing with the knife, like you would cut an onion. I could see his hand going back and forward. The knife was about six inches long.”

David Pethers, who was slashed in the neck himself as he tried to help, angrily shared that “There were other adult men standing there, just filming it on their phones… There were so many opportunities where someone could have grabbed him.”

While many people would say that Pethers’ actions during the London stabbing incident were unusual and heroic, he doesn’t seem to think that his actions were anything special and is instead disgusted that most people just watched the events unfold instead of trying to help as well.
