pretty fucked up. i'm going to avoid making any sweeping statements about China and Chinese society.
when did it become ok to show videos like that on the news?
I think it's OK to show it on the news.
It doesn't show the actual impact.
Sometimes you have to see to believe.
so i looked, i clicked on the link because i wanted to see the evidence of people ignoring her.....to see if that was as bad and inexcusable as it sounded, or if there were mitigating circumstances for the passers by that ignored........but it looks like there were not any visual mitigating circumstances.......to be fair i imagine that a large number of people would have the same response as me, and to be fair to those that showed it, how else would you have shown that the thread headline was true? and not just some cock and bull story designed to muddy the chinese reputation.......i think you need to actually need to see the passers by, passing by, to appreciate the apparent callousness (or awfulness of their current societies culture of fear of blame, where it has managed to overide their humanity)
