This... I find disturbing on many levels.
So this guy helps a lady being mugged (level of disturbing 1: the city has a low crime rate per capita so things like this tarnish those stats) and the Samaritan gets stabbed. The mugger flees. Apparently so does the lady (level of disturbing 2: some dude helps you out, gets hurt in the process and you walk away?). Then the samaritan falls down and is ignored for an hour, allowing the guy to freakin' bleed to death (level of disturbing 3 through 10: people PASS HIM BY during that hour and do nothing. Level of disturbing 100: some idiot takes out his cell and TAKES A PICTURE and walks on by).  By the time EMTs arrive, it's too late.
So the guy was homeless. He helped someone and that is what he got? A likely slow death? Humans are so...!!!! I just can't believe it. Lady who was mugged, you know who you are, and your part in his death.  A little gratitude in this case could have saved his life.  And dude with the cell phone picture? I sincerely hope you share it and get caught and charged with accessory to manslaughter or something like that.

Sometimes, I really despise people.

I think I'm going to go look at cute kitten videos for a while.

  1. People generally are awful. It's a sad but true fact. Sure, there is good in this world, there are happy things and good people, there are, but the world is mainly ruled by the opposite of that, people out for their own gain, their own problems, their own lives, with no time to even glance the way of someone in need. (And it's nothing new. Read the story of the Good Samaratin. There were others (well-to-do, prominent people of his own city) who passed him by, but it was someone of their enemy city who stopped to help him.)

    You're right. It's a sad, sad thing. I hate to hear stories like this--why I don't watch the news very much any more.


I'd love to know what you think:
