Graphic: Police Release Video Of Hartford Hit-And-Run

Here’s What’s so Chilling. Nobody seemed to care on the street. Look at the video. A number of people just stood around and did nothing. Nothing. How would you react if yo witnessed such an event? Would you go to the victim’s aid? Would you call for help? Take a look.
And I wonder if we should not have a good Samaritan law that gives immunity form a law suit to those who, in good faith, try to be of help.Â Many people say they shy away from helping in certain situations because they do not want to be sued. So should we give legal protection to one who tries to help?What do you think?
