Tell that to Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax.
The irony of the title the BBC chose for the article really makes you wonder if it was intentional or not. I guess if you aren't middle class or American that New York spirit they talked about after the 9/11 attacks doesn't apply.
But hey, at least someone stopped long enough to take a picture.
Now, I appreciate that people might not want to get directly involved in a rough neighbourhood - but at least call the police and give the correct address - the final call of three was the only one that got the police to the correct area, and by then an hour and a half had passed since Tale-Yax had been stabbed.
The USA - truly a nation based on the teachings of Jesus.
