Chilling Juxtaposition

In this video, Wang Yue, a two-year-old, is run over by not one, but two, vans, both drivers continuing on their way. Passers-by on this busy road in China ignore the bleeding child, until a woman finally stops and aids the toddler after at least 18 people went by without raising a finger. Outcome: Child dies.

In this video, a stray dog risks its life to save another dog that has been hit by a car on a busy highway in Chile. Outcome: Both dogs survive.

    I take your point. Dogs more humane than humans.

    Does the overwhelming number of people in China contribute to this attitude of one life not being worth much?

    Just to mention: you left out the x in juxtaposition.

  2. Before watching the video I said to myself, must have been a girl and of course it was. Unfortunately it is not the large population that contributes to this attitude but the still prevailing disregard for the lives of girls.

    The dog video I love.
