Lack of Humanity? Homeless Man Left To Die in NYC

A homeless man was left to die on a Queens, NY sidewalk this weekend after he was stabbed numerous times while coming to the aid of a woman that was apparently in troubleFor over an hour, people (25) passed the man who lay on the pavement bleeding to death. 

Although stories on this incident deflect blame from the passerbyers with the fact that people are seen sleeping on the sidewalk all the time, this situation is a blaring example of the psychological phenomenon known as the "Bystander Effect," a human condition that was researched after the murder of Kitty Genovese in an area of Queens not far from where this crime occurred.

Well, on a positive note, at least 1 in 26 people are still human.
