A woman was raped on a Philadelphia commuter train Wednesday night at 10:00 pm in full view of the other passengers. No one intervened or called 911, even when the woman lost consciousness. A train employee entered that car for a routine check and immediately called 911.

 

Everything was caught on camera and the rapist has been arrested. 

 

According to police, there were many people in the train car.

 

How is this possible?

Maybe 'snitches get stitches' situation?

 

No wonder why I have a concealed carry permit, at least I have a fighting chance .

Wow how ridiculous!!

 

If it was me, I would have texted 911 if I felt scared to actually call on my phone.  No reason why a group of people wouldn't intervene though.  Really sad for this woman.

The problem today is you help someone and police arrest you for helping.  Yes...it's that bad!

Maybe the passengers didn't know what was going on. Maybe the victim was not able to yell for help. There's no way to know what happened unless I was there or saw the surveillance video. The whole story is not there so I can't comment on the passengers.

I live in the Philly suburbs and heard that on the news.  I just can't believe not one person called 911.  I bet some were filming it and will post on YouTube or something.  Disgustng.

This isn't just a recent phenomenon, for those of us who remember the Kitty Genovese case in NYC in the 1960s.  If you don't, Google it.

People are reverting to savagery. That's what happens when morals are abandoned and anything goes.

Ever notice on the news there always seems to be a video, most I am guessing are made using a cell phone. 

 

Now what is important to you and I is someone helping this lady, or at least calling 911. To others getting a "like" on their social media for their video is a top priority. Thus, in my book, another reason I do not like cell phones, unless used as a telephone, period!

 

I am with you on this one. WWYD?  I am not sure, but if it were here in my City? I would holler, then pull out my 9mm, and go from there. Hopefully that would be all that was necessary to stop this atrocious assult.

 

It's a different world now and sometimes I wonder who is on our side!
