Several people were inside the internet cafe when the man was murdered. Although the incident took place in front of several individuals, no one bothered to help the victim fight off his assailant.

After the stabbing took place, several people simply stood around the man’s body. One female gamer reportedly continued to play her game despite the fact that blood had splattered on her clothes. The murder was captured on the cafe’s surveillance system.

Man Murdered At Internet Cafe, Gamers Continue Playing

Don't think I could of just kept playing with blood splattering on me or would want to.

Are people really getting this disconnected?

People suck.

We need a plague.

People have gone beyond selfish and greedy. To actually find compassion, and sharing, from people is hard to do, especially strangers. Popularity, and " I am above that " mentallity has taken over.

People suck, period.

Of course the gamers kept on playing!

They don't want to lose a life because they took their attention away from their game!

I'm not sure about Taiwan, but a lot of Asian citizens make a living playing games. I wouldn't doubt if the people in that cafe had a job to protect, and leaving the keyboard to assist could have cost them it.

I really don't think this is a societal or species disconnect so much as it is cultural programming (defend your livelihood before another's).

People are justifying these actions in this thread already....

Disgusting. As I said, people suck.

There is NO excuse to not help another person, none.

It is how people have become, selfish, and greedy. And only care about themselves. It will only get worse.

Pretty much what Sakari said. The world gets worse every day. Wouldn't be suprised if we do ahve a plague at soem point. Even if nature brings it on.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Isn't it just the worse thing on this earth to see the lack of love and compassion for one another? Shocking beyond words. :no:

Who here would stand between a man with a knife and the victim? I wouldn't unless i had training or a weapon. I mean, i am not a martial arts expert, i don't carry a weapon and i have a family that needs a father/husband.

I would.....As I know he may have a family that needs him also. And, I hope someone would do the same for me.

Not hard, especially when there ie more then one person there to jump his ass, hit him over the head with anything.....At least try to save a fricken life, and not be only thinking of yourself........You would just stand there and ignore it, or watch it like it were a pay per view event?

What if you were the " victim "????????

Most of the time, in a situation like this, once the person see's he/she is out numbered, they will stop.



As I said, people suck, are selfish, and only think of themselves.



Edit to add :

I have done this......

I hope I would help him even if all I did was throw a chair at the man with the knife.  I know I couldn't just sit there continuing to play a game even if my job was at stake.

Been there more than once before I even graduated from my Freshmen year of high school.

Disarming somebody who has a short range weapon, such as a knife (does not count for larger knives such as machetes) is more about being calm and studying how your opponent is moving than it is about being particularly well versed in techniques. Although knowing anatomy can help as well, because for tougher individuals it might just be easier to eat the blade in a part of you where it won't do much damage, then grab the attacker's arms so they can't pull it out.

Again, I wouldn't recommend unarmed disarm if your assailant is using a very large knife. I primarily encountered knives of six inches or shorter. The instances where a larger weapon was used, I found it best to be armed with something bigger and play keep away.
