This Doesn’t Inspire my Faith in Humanity

Seriously?  Am I just weird because I would stop to help?  It disturbs me know end to see so many people just casually walk by someone who is in obvious need of assistance.

That incident is disturbing on so many levels it’s not even funny.  The fact that the driver fled the scene of the accident is not surprising given everyone else’s behavior.

I know there are many who would say, “You don’t know how you would react.”  Well I can tell you this.  I would be ashamed to do such a thing and it would no doubt disappoint my family and further I would disgrace everyone else who I share the Eagle’s Nest with.  I know many people overwhelmingly live their lives in condition white, but to think that none of those people saw that man is beyond comprehension.  Further I know first hand that even after suffering severe trauma, I will continue to think of the welfare of others first until such time as the cavalry arrives.

God I need some hard liquor, crap like this is just depressing.  Anyone has anything that inspires faith?  I need a refill to remind me that is by no means a good example of society.  Then again you also had incidents like the person who was stabbed and left bleeding on the sidewalk and no one did anything.

    It looks like the last guy getting on the bus takes a look and crosses himself.
    At least this lets us know from whom we can expect to get any help: not them.

    Sad state of affairs. I’ve help save a couple of people who were victims of accidents when no one else would step forward, and I have no formal training in medical aid. You’d think someone would at least see if the guy was still breathing and call 911.

    Cities are Evil(tm), which is why I am trying to escape mine ASAP. IT geek looking to relo into WNC, and waiting to hear back on 3 apps.

    • I know that feeling. It’s really hard to get a solid EE (Software Engineering Emphasis, Think DSP and embedded type work) in the middle of BFE.
