    So sad! What would possess someone to take a photo with their cell phone but see if she was being helped? Did the store clerk not see her there?? I wonder if she would have survived if she'd gotten to the hospital that 2 minutes sooner, they didn't mention that.

    from the article:
    It was uncertain what law, if any, would be applicable. A state statute for failure to render aid refers only to victims of a car accident.
    When they started instituting those so-called Good Samaritan laws, I remember some people were upset about it. But it's been proven countless times that it is necessary.


    It's like that famous case in 1964 in New York, when a woman named Kitty Genovese was murdered in an alley with dozens of eyewitnesses, but no one called the police. Everyone figured that someone else must have, if that many people were watching.

    Absolutely appalling! It's a wonder those people can sleep at night.

    "It was tragic to watch," police spokesman Gordon Bassham said Tuesday. "The fact that people were more interested in taking a picture with a cell phone and shopping for snacks rather than helping this innocent young woman is, frankly, revolting."

    I couldn't agree more. I heard this story on the news this evening and told my DH about it, He didn't believe me. He said that no one could do that to another person. I just sent him the link.

    If this is in fact what happened, it is beyond appalling.

    However, I do wonder why the only original reporting on this came from a columnist for the Wichita Eagle. That certainly isn't the usual route for the initial reporting on such an incident. The AP story takes all its information from that column and adds no new information or quotes or anything. Just makes me wonder if something isn't being twisted or somehow taken out of context.

    That is just...wow! I could not imagine seeing someone needing help and just going about my way.

    And now, police are trying to track down photos of a dying Calloway that someone told them had been posted on the Internet.
    That is just sick.
