Default Hit-and-run

I am not sure if any of you have seen this video Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com

check it out, it looks like the cars were racing or playing around, now the 78 year old guy is left paralyzed from the neck down. The drivers are yet to be found...

Watched the vids at work yesterday after hearing about it on the radio. fucked up situation.

at least 911 was called and the police responded very quickly. but that certainly doesnt make up for the fact that no one helped the poor guy.

How can people so rude? Seriously. If you were hit by a car would you just want people to sit and stare at you as you're in harms way? And hitting someone and fleeing? That's pathetic. Own up and admit it. Someone is horribly hurt becasue of you. People needs to really shape up.

/end rant.

Shit like that just pisses me off.

it made news over here too

cunts in cars.... but accidents do happen....

but when you see something like that... how is it that people do not rush to that person's aid, to at least ensure other traffic doesn't hit the lifeless lump?

apparently (according to the articles released out here) pedestrians and cars alike just carried on passing by, except for one walker, who stopped only to take a foto! (WTF!?)

nice society! 'me' much? FUBAR
