    I suppose its not so much the initial act of violence that is extraordinary but the rapid formation of a 'violent mob' - that would be an area of concern for say trade, investment or some mid -western parent contemplating where to go for a family vacation this summer.....

    He got what he deserved. He could have been Dominican, American, Chinese, or whatever.

    Stabbed a 4 month old in the neck?!?

    I don't know about killing him but if they were just gonna beat the crap out of him, I definitely would've put in a few swift kicks to the gut.

    Yeah I guess it is very different from the states where most people would simply just stand around doing nothing but watching this guy stab the child or video taping it so they could post it on youtube. Personally, I agree that this Hatian man got what he deserved.

    don't be silly. in the USA you can get a legal smack for not helping someone. people would react. the only difference is that they would hold the perpetrator down until the arrival of the police (within minutes) because they would be scared to be prosecuted for hurting him.

    You're correct, but can you give me one example where it was upheld?? I will post a few examples regarding people in the good ol USA standing around while crimes are being committed.. Do a search for yourself to get an idea how much this unfortunately happens.. It's sad BUT TRUE.

    CNN Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com


    On October 24th, 2009, as many as 20 witnesses watched as a 15 year old girl was brutally assaulted and raped outside a homecoming dance in Richmond, CA. The viciousness of the attack was shocking, but what was even more shocking was the fact that so many people witnessed the attack and yet failed to intervene or call police.

    Deborah Boothby Was Beaten to Death While 100 Watched; Now 4 People Arrested


    A young woman was allegedly beaten outside a nightclub while people watched and took videos of the attack with their mobile phones. A witness says no one tried to stop the fight or help the victim, who later died. Police have since made two arrests and have charged one woman with murder. Dr. Drew and his guests will weigh in on this behavior.Tonight: Woman beaten as people take videos | HLNtv.com

    it's enough problem to be just accused, you don't have to be sentenced. and people in DR stand over dying accident victims snapping photos too. your attempts at "usa is much worse" will never be successful.

    You're missing my point.. It's not about one place being better than the other.. It's about ALL of the places being the same more or less regarding human nature and that there are good and bad people in every society and country in the world. No country is immune. Not even the US.
