Get off your camera and be human!
Unfortunately, the person taking record of this does not have any sense to get off his mobile handset and confront this beast of a woman.
If only people can learn from Kevin Carter’s 1994 story where this adventurous photojournalist took a Pulitzer award winning photo of a malnourished starved Sudanese child (now South Sudan) next to a vulture ready to devour her!
Though the photo won an award for him, Carter took his own life four months later after facing a barrage of criticism from concerned humanitarians who sought to understand what had happened to the starved child. It turned out that Carter left the helpless child to be devoured by the waiting vulture just because he simply cared to take that momentous award winning shot!
Similarly, today we are in an era where a dying accident victim will not attract any humanitarian help but the most people would do is take pictures. We are in times where people only care about the traffic they generate on their social media platforms yet they can at least do more than the virtual advocacy. Whereas it is good to take record of such incidents, it is in fact much more better to confront the culprits committing such heinous actions.
