Don't Know What To Say...

Not surprised though...Read for yourself:

"In an instance of shocking apathy, a sub-inspector of Tamil Nadu Police, brutally attacked by a gang in Tirunelveli district, bled to death as his cry for help went in vain even after two ministers with their convoy stopped by and saw his plight.

44-year old Vetrivel, who was a member of the Special Task Force that gunned down forest brigand Veerappan in 2004, lay in a pool of blood with his leg severed and begged for help after the attack by the gang at Alwarkuruchi shortly before the ministerial convoy was to pass by last evening, eyewitnesses said.

Health Minister M R K Panneerselvam and Youth and Sports Development Mohideen Khan, along with officials, including the District Collector, halted their convoy on seeing the profusely bleeding police official battling for life on the road.

Eyewitnesses said Vetrivel was screaming for help but did not get assistance in time from the ministers and accompanying officials."

Saw this on the news an hour ago. While I am totally aghast at the reasons being put forward by the government people driving by, what stopped the TV correspondent and the cameraman from rushing this guy to hospital. Was it necessary to stand around filming the sub inspectors last moments in agony ? For transmission on prime time TV ? Have we lost all value for human life unless it belongs to a politician ? Shame on us.

That was so shocking to read about! The apathy is shocking! I believe it was a free-lancer who filmed it - but still makes one wonder where everybody's priorities are! As for the politicians - lesser said the better! The so called representatives of people standby while a man bleeds to death!

The footage is too shocking to be described. everyone watched but no one did anything. The two ministers, with many cars in their entourage, waited for an ambulance to arrive; no one helped to help stem the flow of blood.

I have never seen such cruel apathy ever. Shocking does not even describe it. Those ministers should be thrown out of the government.

I agree with both of you - the journalist should have done something but then again, he was getting a story, wasn't he?

And what were the eyewitnesses doing- practising telling their story to the press?

The cop belonged to the same force which protects these useless-ungrateful-undeserving-corrupt set of politicians.Next time,the force should leave a neta alone in midst of a crises.
At the end nothing will happen, if these ministers go-so will the central Govt-hence they will find some excuses.
S-H-A-M-E on all those who are around because of their support.

I understand there was no jouralist of media person around it was a video footage of a passerby sent to TV channels. Perhaps a person without a car at his disposal. While the minister and govt officials had cars and yet they called up an ambulance and waited long enough until they realised it aint coming! We have some sick minds up there!

It is shocking!

and more shocking that these ministers are still in power.. nd the public who normally dont need much to get agitated are doing nothing... guess they continue to wait seduced by the handouts (TV, Computer etc.. etc) in return of votes.. nd I read that none of the main Media owned by these politicians gave this news any importance...
