maybe i'm missing something ,but if the doors are locked and the windows are up , no one is pulling anybody out of a vehicle.Should the taxi driver have kept driving, away from the situation ? Maybe the hoodlum showed a weapon ,who knows?

Since the Taxi is licensed and she was paying the fare, he doesn't have to do a thing. The passenger is required to lock/unlock the door in every state that I know.Also, the window is her responsibility. The Taxi 'could' have radioed his dispatch and had 911 immediately, though the cops were probably writing speeding tickets.
