http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2011/08/04/four-people-held-for-trial-for-shooting-at-septa-bus/ A recent incident in Philadelphia prompted me to ask myself this question. A lady was on a SEPTA bus with her misbehaving child, whom she proceeded to spank. A fellow passenger took it upon himself to admonish the lady for spanking the child, threatening to turn her in to DHS. The lady gets on her cell phone and calls a friend relaying what had happened. The bus is met at the next stop by two armed men who help the lady and her child get off the bus. The lady then points out the man who admonished her and tells the men to open fire. Thankfully they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn door and no one was hurt. The incident was caught on tape and the men were arrested. Is this really where we are as a society? There are many more examples of brazen indifference to human life that can be added to this but the bottom line is we seem to have lost our moral compass. The sad part of the above story is that there was an 80 year old woman on the bus who had no idea what was going on and was walking up and down the aisle trying to figure out what to do.
