Man’s ‘cruelty’ in 9 degree temperature
A video going viral on social media is from San Francisco, US, where a man mercilessly sprinkles water on a homeless woman, doing so when the temperature in the area has dropped below 9 degree Celsius. According to ABC7 News, the man has been identified as Collier Gwin, who owns an art gallery. He has accepted this ruthless step of his, but flatly refused to apologise.
The nearby cafe owner did the record
Social media users have described this act of throwing water on the woman as ‘brutal’. Also demanded action against Jeevan. As ABC7 News reports, the video was recorded by Edson Garcia, the owner of a nearby cafe. He told the news outlet that he turned to the shore and saw the man dousing the woman with water. Garcia continued, “It was cold and it was raining. She was yelling OK I go, I go!”
‘I was going to wash the road and…’
The cafe owner said that he sometimes told the helpless woman not to block the way for people coming to his outlet, which she obeyed, but Gwynn claimed that the woman became too combative. The art gallery owner told the news outlet, “I was going to wash the street and she refused to move. Said he called the police for help 25 times and the woman was told by the police that morning that she needed to leave.
Expressed displeasure with social media users
The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) said in the case that police viewed the hosing incident as a possible assault, but both Gwin and the woman declined further police action. But the footage has sparked outrage from social media users, who were shocked at the treatment meted out to the homeless woman.
