Has anyone seen the video tape on the news of the elderly gentleman who was hit by a car while it was chasing another car in Hartford, Conn.? It happened about two days ago and it's played all over the news. It showed where people just stood around on the sidewalk and didn't help the poor guy. Later they stated that four calls came into 911 in less than a minute concerning this. From what i saw the whoile time on that tape while that guy was laying flat on his back was no one was willing to go over to him and assist him until help arrived. I couldn't believe what I saw in people. Are people that disconnected from real life to where they don't want to help anyone hit by a car? The guy is paralized now in the hospital. I do hope they find those people in both cars who did this and make them pay dearly for what they did to this gentleman.

Yes, I saw it. I couldn't believe no one stopped to help him. That was disgusting. It's not like the road was too dangerous to stop on. Hartford is not the greatest city in the world. I'm sure they'll be able to enhance the photos they got of the two cars. I was there twice in my life, and couldn't wait to leave each time. NYC is much safer.

It was a lead story on CNN.

You're probably right, click. If someone does try to help then they get blamed for the paralysis. I couldn't help myself but to help in some way.

People just don't care anymore... A lot of lookie lou's, they all want to see blood, but nobody wants to help.

Unfortunately , in the stae of Connecticut the law says when you attempt to assist someone who is injured, unless you are a doctor, liscensed AND BONDED emt or firedepartment medic you can and will be held responsible for that person's injuries whether you inflicted them or not! Now do you understand why the "apathy" and uncaring feelings of people.

I think not touching is common sense and without researching, I believe most, if not all states have similar laws. Most people are aware of that. But you don't leave a man lying unprotected in a road. Defer traffic. Anything until the right help gets there.
