Fantasy and reality

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 3:23 PM

Last week, as many as 1,500 people watched a 19-year-old man commit suicide via Web cam. What's more horrifying than that? The number of people who have since watched the video. What's really going on in our society when we are actually watching people die? For 10 hours no one called or did anything while this young man lay there and died. I think everyone who viewed it should be charged. That may seem extreme but perhaps others will think again before idly standing by and watching someone take a last breath.
