    I’m a New Yorker and I hate to say it we are some selfish self-centered ba.stards. I’m sure had I been in lame Queens I wouldn’t have helped either.

    People are so cruel these days. @Freeze I hope you burn forever in hell for that comment you made. @ak you’re absolutely correct.

  • belletheball

    I was about to say this was the bystander effect, but I don’t think I can call it that when people are poking, prodding and taking photos of the man. We are really living in a desensitized, self-absorbed, careless society.

    @ Freeze

    You did not have to touch him. You dumb ni99a. All you had to do was call for help.
