some people are unbeleivable. on the news this morning i heard a sad story. a man in his 50's or 60's can't remember exactly, was standing at a bus stop when a guy in a truck ran into him and sent him flying 30 feet. he had bags of groceries with him. people rushed over and guess what they did, no one rushed to help him they rushed to steel the groceries, and the guy in the truck that hit him left the scene. one other man did help the man that was hit and he put his bags down and people stole his bags as well. the man later died from the hit and run. how sad is that. what is this world comming to

hello, poppoppop! I am so sorry for the poor man. The traffic accidents are common, but why the persons do so? It is a big pity! The persons who robbed the poor man's things will not feel reassuring when they talk to the God for help, and maybe they will be punished. As far as the peacebreaker, I think the police will find and judge him. Yes, there are more and more things we don't want to see happening everyday. So, what should we do? Perhaps what we can do is helping others as much as we can . best wishes to the world and all the persons!

This story makes me sick. We humans are just so unkind. What is this world coming to? We hear about global warming but we build even more factories. We hear about the North Pole melting but we plan to place a sea route in the place that melted. The earth needs more people who actually care about the things and people around them.

I heard about it on the news as well and it did make me sick. I'm not proud of our world because of what it has become. It's definetely isn't what I was raised to be or to do. We're not here for long, I'm afraid, in which I had asked my mother a while back, "How bad did it get in Noah's time before God flooded the world? How bad is it going to get this time before he destroys it again but this time by fire?" People better start waking up and realizing what they're doing is wrong and start straighening up or we're all doomed. The old saying is so true. "Turn right and go straight" Now how hard can that be?

That is disgusting! It just shows that people no longer have respect for others. I wonder if they have a concience.

That is really sad. People are just plain losing their sanity. There is no way that I could take the groceries, when someone is laying there hurt. I would feel compelled to help, even if I wasn't sure what to do.

That is amazing. People usually want to watch accidents and just stand there, but to actually steal both mens' groceries instead of helping is incredible.

This is so sad. Those people who stole those groceries and didnt help should be ashamed of themselves. I feel so sorry for his family. I hope they catch the guy who ran into him. he deserves to be punished. I so dont understand people, so many these days dont seem to care about others, its tragic what things are becoming

Wow that is absolutly ridiculous. I cant believe people would even stay so calm as to steal his groceries after witnessing a scene like that. I would have been horrified! How awful for that man, and the one nice person that wanted to help was rewarded by having his stuff stolen too. That's just sickening. I cant believe it. I hope they find the truck driver. What a depressing story!

Right, this story really IS sad. Early this year, I saw some videos about the LA riots and it was pretty scary stuff. It made me think how people can act that way towards another human being. We should love one another as brothers and sisters. This might sound corny but I don't know any other way to put it. There is still hope but it should start from us. Let's convert our anger to understanding, our criticisms to sympathy. Let's all hope for a better world. Peace!
