Man Passes Out & Is Beaten & Robbed By Other Patrons
The term “Good Samaritan” comes from a parable about a traveler who is beaten, robbed, and left half dead along the road. First a priest and then a Rabbi come along, but both avoid the man. Finally, a Samaritan comes by.
Historically, Samaritans were a large community — up to more than a million in late Roman times. Not so much anymore. The Samaritan helped the injured man. According to the current tally, there are 745 Samaritans alive today. Apparently, none of them were walking by this neighborhood outside this bar that night. Where’s a Good Samaritan when you need one? Or how about a cop? Or a decent human being?
