A heroic homeless man, stabbed after saving a Queens woman from a knife-wielding attacker, lay dying in a pool of blood for more than an hour as nearly 25 people indifferently strolled past him, a shocking surveillance video obtained by The Post reveals.

%0 years of conditioning to “let the authorities handle it”.
Animals can be driven crazy by placing too many in too small a pen.
Homo sapiens is the only animal that voluntarily does this to himself.
I see where ‘one’ of these animals posted a comment on the site asking .. “What the hell was he chasing after the guy for .. Was he going to rob him?”
I am SO TIRED of these kinds of people/Animals!
Prayers for this hero. Shame on those that walked on by.
It’s New York.
So the government funded “taxpayers” saw him and left him to die. ;-)
WTF ! Now I know why I have no desire to visit NYC !
“In the wake of the bloodshed, a man came out of a nearby building and chillingly took a cellphone photo of the victim before leaving.”
In New York, I’m surprised no one tried to see if he had any money to steal while he laid dying.
Socialist mentality: NOTHING TO SEE HERE FOLKS, JUST MOVE ON.
they refuse to give the race of the attacker...lol...we live in an asylum
I was at a hotel once and I saw a little girl slip into the deep end and her mother jumped in to save her
I was frozen with fear
how could these people just walk by ?
I don’t know. I fear people have lost common sense & empathy. Maybe they just didn’t want to be involved. I know I couldn’t walk on by. It is very sad & scary when people can stop caring about their fellow man/woman.
“Cops said they received four 911 calls at around the time of the attack reporting a woman screaming, but found nothing.”
Union quality work.
Wow I totally agree. In a past life I had to travel to NY/Boston/Newark as a requirement of my employer. I hated it. I guarantee that New York New York is not ever not ever again.
How hard is it to call 911? Most cellphones have a one-key method for emergencies now. I’ve called when people were in danger of freezing, when people were acting loco on the bus . . . many times.
The Empire State.
I wonder .. Did the one taking the cell phone picture .. accidentally dial 911?
If so .. You can bet that It Was a mistake!
I’ve observed an overcrowding effect on people just in an office. When everyone is in it’s a less pleasing environment. Take a few out for the day and it’s more palatable.
New York City, in particular, at least certain parts, is incredibly crowded. And everyone moves fast. It can be very overwhelming. But I have been there when people stop to help someone in need. It’s not all awful.
Neighbors of New Yorker, Kitty Genovese, back in the 1960s listened a long time to Kitty’spiercing screams from her apartment, but did nothing and did not phone the police.
People afterwards said “Tsk, tsk, what is wrong with people?” and lots of analyses appeared.
This heroic man, himself bereft of home, retained and proved his humanity.
What do you want to bet .. All of those that just walked by, (the ‘homeless man’) .. were going HOME?
This district went >96% for Obama in 2008.
24 Obama supporters step over a dying man, and couldn’t be bothered to lift a finger to help.
The story is as old as Kitty Genovese. 1964.
It’s a social psychological phenomenon known as the “bystander effect” or “diffusion of responsibility”. It’s a result of liberalism. For example, liberals find it (much) easier to vote to have their neighbors’ money confiscated by government and handed over to “the needy” than it is to actually take responsibility and do something themselves. Somebody is stabbed and dying? The government will take care of that problem.
It's difficult for me to believe that 96% of that district is Amish!
Too much TV. They are so used to watching crime shows on TV that when they see it in reality, they tune out just like they do when practicing being a couch potato.
Other side is, maybe people did call 911 but 911 never picked up the phone.
A few weeks back someone stole the mirrors off of my friend's truck. His neighbor called 911 to report the theft. No one answered the phone on the 911 end. This happened in Queens NY.
As always, there are two sides to every story.
What the hell is wrong with people?
There is a lot wrong with all the people involved in this news story.
Why is a woman walking alone at 530ish am with cell phone in hand and didn’t help the guy out after he saved her?
I’m talking in general now:
I see too many of you women walking or jogging or doing stupid things alone when you shouldn’t be there especially when its dark. I’m a guy and you wouldn’t find me going into that situation.
I live near the ocean and its a great area out here but I see women jogging after dark into extremely dark area/secluded areas and I always have to shake my head and say to myself what a Freaking Dummy dummy ( i cant cuss here) but you get what i mean.
Some have a fear of being sued others are just like the lawyers that create the fear they don’t give a @$%@.
What the hell kind of creature could just walk on by something like this?!?
If I am ever in need like this I pray there are several Freeper nearby.
They may have thought he was passed-out from booze, or mentally ill and sleeping there, I don’t know.
There are many people on the sidewalks in NY doing all sorts of different things.
If they didn’t see blood I could see how this could happen.
If law-abiding NY’ers were allowed to carry firearms then this scenario might have turned out with a dead perp instead of a dead good Samaritan.
What happened to the woman that was initially accosted? Why didn’t she call police?
She was too busy .. Running away!
Big cities are boils on Earth's butt!
And often home to the people who tell those of us in the hinterlands we can't cut this tree, move that rock, fill that mudhole...
I know—but I’m wondering if she did call police about the attack. If she didn’t, why not?
We’ll survive here without you.
This is the kind of thing that happens in an “all about me” entitlement society.
Many don’t care to help because they can’t see anything in it for them.
Way back in 1974 I took a train from Seoul to Inchon Harbor to take photos of the unusual vessels there.
I got to the train station in Inchon and took a bus to the Harbor, then walked along a dirt road to it, about a mile and a half.
It was January and cold and as I walked I came across some old drunk sleeping along the road, red from the cold.
I took my photos and had some coffee and then started back home.
Guy was still there sleeping as muctitudes walked and passed him.
About half way back to Seoul on the train I realized this guy was dead.
Dead and thousands simply walked by and ignored his lifeless body.
To this day it still affects the way I think about folks.
That said, as someone who lived many years in NYC and loves it (well, love/hates it), there are many citizen heroes in the metro area. A glance at 9/11 reminds us of that.
Overcrowding and the stress it exerts seem to raise the resistance threshold of the willingness to get involved. Living in NYC is like living inside a giant machine. You realize that you are a much smaller part of the whole...and, as such, you have much less individual power there as opposed to a small town. Hence, there is a greater sense of apprehension...and an increased unwillingness to take dangerous action (because all action appears to be more dangerous).
Of course we must fear evil men, but there is another evil that we must fear more and that is the indifference of good men.Monsignor
Flyover country isn’t as cultured as those in the big city.....Thank God!
Telling comment by a reader:
“I am born and raised in the lower east side, NYC, and honestly, I don’t miss it either. I only miss my friends. All the city is now is a big giant dive bar for jerk off out of town scum bags, teenage hoodlums with no respect, and a dirty, rat infested ****hole.”
This has nothing to do with crowding and everything to do with the enemies of society being excused for their barbaric behaviour.
The good samaritan was stabbed to death.
Kitty Genovese: The indifference of good men
NOT FOR KIDS
The religion of liberals is to sell their humanity in the very name of humanity; by paying taxes with the understanding that its the states responsibility to take care of themselves and their neighbors.
Therefore, charity and goodwill are matters of the state, not of individuals on the street.
That and 75% of the scum on the streets in NYC are working some scam, and the people there have learned to just keep walking and not get involved.....
Me too. I occasionally have to travel the DC-Philly-NYC-Boston axis on business, and I despise those cities and their cultures.
what a crock...
What is Lazarus saying? A pack of dogs would stop and call an ambulance? A flock of seagulls would stop and call Police?
Fine quote, but I think it is better applied on a slightly different scenario....
