Hey "Star Kitten" [Nice Avatar BTW
] , this kind of behavior not only irritates me, it downright infuriates me as well. For some reason we are
now witnessing an increase in such "hands-off" behavior, and it goes against EVERYTHING upon which this Nation and Society in General were founded.
I see the older Generations, such as my Father and his Father, and they were always there for eachother. Back when they grew-up, your neighbors helped
you out, and you helped them. No one used to complain about the lack of "Government Intervention", because they simply believed that we as Americans
should help EACHOTHER.
In recent news stories I can recall there was an elderly pedestrian who was hit by a "Hit-and-Run" driver in Connecticut, yet people just walked
around him, drove around him, and took photographs of him lying motionless in the street. Some clown even rolled up on his Moped and circled around
the guy in a curious manner, and then left. I also remember this lady who died in an ER out in Los Angeles I believe, and the employees, patients, and
officials simply walked over her body without the slightest concern. A Janitor was even mopping around the lady's body, but she still remained on the
floor until someone dialed 911. A similar incident occurred with a stabbing victim in a Gas Station Super Market. Customers took pictures of the lady
with their Cell Phones, but NO ONE, not event the attendant on duty, ever dialed 911.
One time I was on the Metro when a Lady became stuck in the door. The sliding doors chimed as they closed (for departure), but they failed to re-open
when they hit her (as they are designed to do). This lady ended up being half-way onboard the car, and half-way standing on the platform. I grabbed
one of the doors, another guy grabbed the other, and we pulled them apart while a third guy used his umbrella to pry them open. Fortunately it worked,
and we pulled the lady on-board. I always remain glad to this day that two others jumped in to help this lady, as opposed to the so often cited cases
of witness neglect.
