What the hell is wrong with us? The video just left me in shock. People literally walk past him, drive their cars around him, and it made me sick to watch. Made me just shudder at the nature of the human race.

People disgust me. I can't fathom what was going thru the inds of the ppl who stood there and did nothing or just drove around this poor man.

I don't know where we all went wrong, but when the aliens come for a shopping preview, they would be in their right mind to decide we should be vaporized instead! The state of many people's sense of right and wrong, their lack of compassion and basic manners, makes me very sad.

Sad. That was so sad, and that one car that was actually a witness was pulled over, and then drove away. Why?

So, sad.

This just broke my heart. I cannot believe that there were only 4 calls to 911. It is just sad.

They say that seeing is believing but I cannot comprehend this... as you said, what the hell is wrong with us?

It still leaves me seething thinking about it. But it also builds more compassion in me and hopefully will do the same for others in the country who read the story and saw the video for themselves.

Peter - you are so right that seeing is believing. We just don't want to believe there are people like that around and yet they confirmed it by their very actions. *shaking head*
