In the wake of the tragic story from the New York City subway this week, I thought it was time to revisit a post on the situations when a person can be arrested and prosecuted for inaction.
It was written during the uproar of the Penn State scandal. Check it out here - Duty to Act. The lack of criminal responsibility will never absolve someone of moral responsibility for 1) not helping, 2) taking this picture, and 3) trying to profit from it.
Naeem Davis was arrested for pushing him on the track. The man who took the New York Post picture? Should anything happen to him? Could anything happen to him?
Incidentally, when I was living in NYC and taking the subways, this was my greatest fear.
