No compassion
23 Oktober 2011

If it was me, I would only call the police and then walk away, I would not help her up. Reason is as follows: 1, afraid of being accused, afraid that as soon as I saved her, her parents would come out accusing me of hurting her. 2, after saving her no one will claim her, and I have to foot the medical expenses, if her parents do not show up then it would be hard for me to leave/remove myself from the situation. 3, In the circumstance that we still do not know the specifics of the traffic accident, I’m afraid if I save her then the police will catch me as the perpetrator, I can only think of these, I hope other netizens can add more. If there are people who agree with me, please repost, and I also hope the editor/author will not delete this post, as I too am a good person/law-abiding citizen.

This view seems to be mainstream. What is the deal with the lack of compassion and empathy in China?
