The situation itself is obviously very sad and clearly many of the people involved have some deep problems... you see it a lot in lower-quality bars an clubs.
But here's a different perspective to consider, why didn't he just get out of there?
I wonder why people hang around people that are obviously not their vibrational matches.

This is why it's important to hang around the right people.
