Really Valuing Life

The most disturbing thing about the footage of the Septa hammer attack (Philadelphia) isn't even that the attacker is first on the train with a young boy. It is that someone saw the attack, and got up and *moved away.* Ten people did not help stop the attack on that young man. Ten people did not assist him, did not help him get assistance at the station, didn't help him to the hospital. One person provided some sort of help, but another, rather than calling 911, stole the victim's cell phone and sold it for $150.
