Re: The New York Post, right, wrong, something else?

I just wonder, if this was a deal that went bad.  The guy who pushed was hired him by him, to kill him  and he was backing out of the deal.  And, got really mad and push the victim all the way into the train.   And, that's what the argument was about.  That's how the photographer, got his attention because of the argument. 

 

As for reporters, you can't  even like anybody anymore, because they are always  on the move.  We have some favorites in our market, but every single reporter is hot and they need the ratings, haha.  People get so turned off by the news now.

I don't know about the rest of Europe, but in France a 'Good Samaritan' law exists wherein it's a legal obligation for onlookers to assist those in danger unless there's also a danger to themselves.

 

Maybe most of the people witnessing this particular situation were too far away or too shocked to offer assistance, but the photographer certainly had the presence of mind to take a photo rather than go to the man's aid. It's a thorny issue, though, requiring legal minds to delve into people's motivations in a given instance.

 

It certainly shouldn't be on the front page, though. We already know being hit by a train will kill you, so what public service are they pretending to serve? It's exploitation, pure and simple, and sadly for humanity it's probably swelled the paper's coffers enough for them to do it again in future.
