Okay, this is a soap box i get on a lot and i know that most of you are probably sick of hearing me rag on and on about how people can be so callous, but when i found this in the news today i just snapped!
A woman, who had been stabbed in a convenience store, was walked around/over while shoppers continued to get their food. She later died of her injuries. Why didn't people stop to help her!? there was no apparent danger from helping her, there was nothing but a dying woman on the floor and apparently all the people could think to do was take a picture of her!
Now it may be that the news from the states gets more press coverage than other places, but in the last few weeks there has been multiple stories from the USA about people watching while someones life is on the line. There seems to be a growing trend right now in the states to stand back and watch the violence...even if you could stop it.
If that doesn't disturb you, you need to check yourself into a mental institution right away.
