This should have never been allowed to happen. EVERY SINGLE PERSON in that computer lab allowed this abuse of power and torture to continue right in front of them for several minutes of a fellow student and human being, and did absolutely nothing to protect him or stop what they knew was wrong. A whole computer lab full of college students for Christs sake. They are as guilty as the ones committing the act to begin with. You wonder why so many have so much power? This is prime example. People are too passive and just dont give a (insert beep here) anymore. Because when wrong doing is committed right in front of someone's face and half way up their nose, they STILL just watch idle and do nothing to help. Then those same people have the balls to come on here and other boards, the web, news, or whatever outlet suites their fancy, and then complain about all the wrong doing in the world.

If one does not act to preserve and protect what is humaine and just, then one does not have any moral leverage to even open their mouth and say a word. Period. When people stand by and show this lack of respect for human life and watch torture right in front of them and still stand idle, it only feeds the minds of those who do have power, reminding them that they do indeed have power to control as long as this type of passiveness exists.

Our society is not becoming more enlightened, it's becoming more passive and emotionless and life of any type is no longer respected the same as it was only decades ago. These students allowed it to happen. They didnt care enough to stop a horrific act right in front of their faces. These students that witnessed this are guilty as the ones who committed it.

Why didnt anyone there help him? That should be AS an important question as to why this all happened to begin with.

Thoughts anyone?

While I denounced what happened to that kid, I would never encourage those students to interfere in something like that. They did the best thing by filming it and being witness to it. Had they intervened more would have been hurt.

The best thing they can do now is voice the experience and when the trial comes up and Im sure there will be..speak up


BTW we have a big thread on the incident here
