Maryland: Tourist Attacked, Robbed & Stripped in Baltimore, No Aid Given

There are times when we see evidence of a society that has degenerated to the depths of benign neglect and sport at the expense of those who have been victimized.

I hesitate to even cite the video link for fear of adding credence to those who filmed it, rather than rendering aid to the immobilized crime victim. Yet, truly "a picture is worth a thousand words" and sadly documents the depravity that purported civilized society has declined to.

COMMENT: Although it is a sad commentary on the state of societal progress, the upside is that various versions of the footage has availed to the Baltimore Police Department valuable leads to hopefully apprehend the perpetrators.

One can only hope that if the bystanders in this case have the misfortune of being laughed and jeered at one day when they are left dazed on the pavement, they will hope and pray for a Good Samaritan.
