Ignoring the dying — revisited

It’s been just a few days since I posted a link to the Detroit story of a body being found — and ignored — in an elevator shaft in an abandoned building. Now comes a video of a man in Washington D.C. being beaten on a busy sidewalk and left to die.

At one point in the video, which comes from a store security camera, a man is loading a van next to the body of the beaten man.

It wasn’t until a store employee called 911 some time after the incident that an ambulance arrived.

Two similar cases in less than a week. And those are just the ones we know about.
