Good samaritan dies on the sidewalk - April 26, 2010, 06:13 PM

Random guy stopped a mugging, got stabbed in the process, and then laid on the sidewalk for over an hour before EMTs arrived. People walked by, someone even took a picture with a cell phone.

Its not uncommon to see someone face down in the middle of the sidewalk in NYC. Usually pissing and shitting themselves. People probably figured he was drunk or high. You see that shit enough, you become desensitized to it and don't make a habit of rolling them over to see how they are doing. Someone probably called the cops and said someone is passed out in the street and they figured f*ck it and took their time getting there. You can even see one of the EMTs kick the guys shoe as he walks up. On the other hand, the guy probably wasnt dressed like a drunk junkie living on the streets and he was in an awkward spot...f*ckin sucks.

The people that just stood by and watched as that old man died in the middle of street after getting hit by a car and those that did nothing as that patient in NY fell over face first in the waiting room are worthless as human beings.

The fact that the dude took a cell phone picture tells me that this was not the standard.

I think you can see the blood pool at one point.

Take it from an NYC vet ...
In NYC, 99% of the time it pays to mind your business and go about your way.

I know how crazy and absolutely uncivilized that must sound down here to people who were raised in this region, but it's the God's honesty truth.

Let the law sort it out.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

Its actually very well documented. Extensive studies have been done, it has nothijng to do with being a pussy, a person helping someone is not at all in harms way. What it comes down to it is, when there are other ppl there, individual responsibility becomes diffused, whereas if its only one person, all the burden becomes placed on you. Its no different than for example, if you are doing a project for work with colleagues vs individually. If your alone, your gonna put all your effort into it, because the outcome will be attributed to solely you vs if your in a group, you dont put in as much effort bc 4 other ppl will get introuble for it as well. Or look at mob mentality, ppl in groups will do things they wouldnt do individually bc responsibility becomes diffused. Examples are numerous/different and yet htey all tie intogether into a similar fashion in how we act in different situations

Fine...call it being a sheep.

Diffusing of responsibility sounds really nice but in this case, individual people walked by without other persons being around.

Sheep vs. Wuss...you say potato, I say potahto.

Yeah that's a good point. The same argument that says people may have been desensitized to seeing something/someone like that and wouldn't think twice about walking on would raise the question..."Why stop take a picture?"

I thought about the blood too. It could have been trapped under his body or soaked up through his clothes as he fell and laid over the wound, but you would think a pool had to have formed.

I still cant believe the blatant disregard for the old man in CT and the patient in NY. They should take a page out of this guy's book: My little 'brother', the hero...
