    Are we comfortable filming incidents than we are getting involved?

    Wikipedia defines the duty to rescue law:  duty to rescue law requires people to offer assistance, and holds those who fail to do so liable.  The good news is thanks to modern technology, i.e. cell phones/tablets, video has helped to record the facts of incidents.  My question: Do people still provide help/assistance?  Why do you think more people are willing to video tape than help? 
    The headlines:
    "Witnesses Filmed Deadly Crash, Didn't Help Victims"
    "Mother Who Survived Brutal McDonald's Attack Wonders Why Onlookers Were Filming Instead Of Helping Her!"
    What are your thoughts?

    Sometimes I think deadly crashes are just easier to record now because of the use of smart phones and cameras in general have gotten a lot smaller, easier to carry around.  Crashes I don't think you always have time to response or help.

    On the flip side of that coin, when people film fights instead of breaking them up I really think this shows a decline in our society.  I feel like social media has detached us from connecting with fellow human beings almost desensitizing us from life.  So in our natural life we view things like fights, as a spectator, like we do with people and videos on social media in our virtual life. 

    I truly wonder when people are watching fights if they are thinking about the people fighting and whether they are going to be hurt, or if they are watching the fight like something they are watching on Youtube in which their actions could in no way affect the outcome.

    I guess what I'm saying is I feel like social media has made everything seem a lot less real and has damaged our abilities to effectively manage moral responsibilities as a society.
