Embarrassed By Spectators



Re: March 2, 2004 Paper "Spectators watch as man beaten."

I'm embarrassed to be living in the same town as those people who stood watching a helpless person -- whether male or female, old or young -- getting beaten, without doing anything to help.

It is sad that we live in a society today that the majority of people would rather "not get involved" than to help a person that needs physical or mental help.

To those "spectators" -- and you know who you are -- sadly, there may come a day when the tables are turned and you will be the one who needs the help. I just hope the person looking at you isn't like you, and has the "heart" to get involved.
