Agreed. We just aren't wired that way by nature. I would even go as far as to say a professional photographers trained instinct is to stop and grab their camera when the unexpected occurs.

Since cameras were first invented there have been many who have strived to catch the moment of death on film, some have succeeded. It's a rather disturbing concept from my perspective but it's far from uncommon. How many wartime correspondants might have saved someone by taking action rather than clicking the shutter? I dunno the answer but I'm sure it's greater than 1.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Helped. I wouldn't have watched a man die standing idly by.

I have been in similar public settings and have helped instead of having my camera ready.

There are situations where the better part of valor is discretion but I don't think this was one of them.

Most people are sheep and this further confirms that.

Was referring to the video of the attack on the girl in the subway.

My stated premise doesn't apply at all to the case of the man on the tracks.

Wouldn't have gotten involved in that subway nonsense with the phone unless someone was in danger of getting beaten to death or what not.

I would prefer those animals take themselves out of the gene collective.

+1. MF'ing animals. I normally wouldn't condone assaulting a minor, but in this case, it would've been satisfying to see a group of vigilantes step in with bats and brass knuckles. Want to train an animal to behave? It's going to take more than calm words of wisdom. DC should allow caning like Singapore. Steal someone's phone on the metro? How about a brutal & bloody beatdown with a cane? Sounds good to me!
