Good Samaritans?

May 25, 2012

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?


  1. I can’t believe how fast our society will turn on each other. This poor guy was in a vulnerable position and these assholes took advantage.

  2. We need to go back to stringing up this people in public and then post videos of them and let everyone humiliate them.I’m sure they would think twice next time.

  3. WOW.. whatever happened to Do unto others as you would have them do to you.. i cant believe the woman examined the guy’s chain and not the guy’s health

  4. Helpers others is too complicated of a thought for these Americans.

  5. It’s like a scene from a wild animal documentary. An example of mob mentally at it’s lowest.

  6. This is like something out of G. Martin’s books, "Game of Thrones". Wharf rats, not humans.

  7. Marcus Aurelius, a Roman General who lived A.D. 121–180 was emperor of Rome in A.D.161. His belief system in "Meditations" has, at its core, that one should do right for its own sake. Neither for reward nor out of fear. We have not learned much in nearly 2,000 years.

  8. Wow. Remind me never to visit Port Chester. One drink too many, and I could be next.
