    I love how all of the people who watched him fall just milled around until the cop jumped in. Don`t try to help or anything.

    Pro Tip: Waving at a train doesn`t make it stop any faster.

    Yes, I would. It wasn;t like it required a giant feat of athletics or split second timing. Pretty much anyone COULD have done that but only one guy even bothered. The fact that you would rather watch some poor sod get smushed by a train than walk 10 feet doesn`t make the rest of the world that pathetic.

    @jevans55

    Well crap, i guess waving does help. (assuming the engineer didn`t see the guy. I will make it a point of waving at trains from now on to see what happens :P

    I`m not jumping in front of a train and onto electrified tracks to save some random drunk shmuck. For all I know, the guy is a serial killer. Or a saint. I don`t care. I`ll wave at the train to stop but I`m not risking my crappy life to save his crappy life.
    But that guy is certainly a hero, he clearly doesn`t care about his own life at all.

    "I`m just saying that you clearly don`t value your own life that much if you`re willing to risk it for some stranger who just did something stupid to put himself in danger."

    No, it means that he values human life in general. The guy doing the rescuing never seemed in danger considering how he sauntered over there. Just because someone made a mistake doesn`t mean they deserve to be violently squashed on the tracks in front of everyone and it`s thinking such as yours that makes me fear for the future.

    99% of the people saying they would jump in wouldn`t. At least the ones who say they wouldn`t are being honest with themselves.

    Someone I knew, a friend or relative, I would jump in a stranger... sorry I will be waving like hell but I ain`t jumping in.

    And for any hypocrite who disagrees with me, you probably could have saved 100 lives in Africa this year by sacrificing the food you ate and giving it away, let yourself starve if to death so other people can eat if you are so benevolent.

    No, you`re just a coward.

    What does feeding people in Africa have anything to do with this? Do you physically have to stand in front of them as they LITERALLY starve to death? No, but everyone standing there as that train came would have had to witness the guts getting squished out of him. I think more people than you think would have jumped in to help... As I said before, you`re just a coward.

    Thank you ajd121, we cynics must stick together. Most people won`t help strangers unless they feel like they have to, and most people figure some one else will do it, therefore they don`t have to. After all, we don`t need 20 people jumping on the tracks to save a guy, we only need one.

    The man waits a full 12 seconds before he runs down and saves the guy. Maybe he waited to the last second for dramatic effect.

    ... but in seriousness, he`s a hero. Bravo sir.

    Although, I would probably have done the same, just a bit sooner :)

    tahts a bit how i feel...its the reason i dont want to join the army...why sacrifice my life for people who dont even know i exsist when i could do something better and save lives rather than take them and/or lose my own? i would save someone i knew but i could not bring myself to do it for a total stranger but you can bet your ass that i will scream at someone else to do it while waving my arms like a bat flying out of hell at the oncoming train while possibly falling in myself praying to god that someone will save me too (if not first)...thats just the way people are...first law of nature is self preservation...

    "its the reason i dont want to join the army..."

    Outstanding! You`re absolutely right. Why should you risk your little candy ass? Why should you have to fight for your rights and those of others? Someone else should do it for you, right? But then, if you`re not willing to fight and die to defend your way of life, what will you die for? You planning on living forever?

    Personally, I`d much rather die defending my country and, by the way, your right to be a pansy and not have to get your hands dirty, than to die in a nursing home later wondering if I could have made a difference.

    I served so that you have the right to grow up to be a whiny, lazy little hipster. I manned the line so that you don`t have to. I payed for your freedom with blood, sweat and tears, as did so many, because you won`t. I still bear the scars and nightmares to prove it. I voluntarily put myself in harm`s way for years ... and I don`t even know you.

    You`re welcome.

    WRONG nobody should have to die for something that should come for free....if i could have it my way the congressmen would be trown in a cage and let them fight that way...its not like they do do it anyway...

    i never said that i didnt respect those servicemen and women and tbh im still am grateful that they do what they do...the fact of the matter is that the job itself shouldnt need to be done and there is no point in dying for something that you want to have...once you are dead you cant use it...

    Lord Jereth: Should we all sign up then? No. Because then there`s no one to protect. Yes, you served your country and each and everyone one of us should be eternaly greatful for your sacrifices. But, Blatently saying your work gives US the right to be pansies, and we`ll die thinking we made no difference because we choose not to fire guns... Neh, doesnt hold water. Try shooting a gun when the miners arn`t mining the ore to make bullets. Good luck gaining improoved equipment when students arn`t learning to advance our weaponry. Thank you for doing one of the most taxing jobs i can think of to help us keep our liberties, but dont stuff militant ideologies down our throats. You`re still one cog in the mechanism of society like every contributing human. Talk and teach, dont preach.

Living here should be an earned right, not a privilege for pants-wetting elitists that are rapidly reproducing and (oh f**k me) voting."

    first of all not all of us "sniveling little punks" take living in the states for granted just most of us...i for one know that i could easily be living in a third world country going through only god knows what...secondly i am in NO way an elitist...im not superior to anybody nor do i wish to be...

    "What you say is true, 9/10 people would just stand and stare, but some of us have the balls to help anyone in need, friend, stranger or foe. Getting hit by a sodding train is no way to go for anyone, Standing around and letting it happen is as good and killing them yourself..."

    but the thing is its not about having the balls to do something its about having the right state of mind to do something AND the courage. one could know full well that they have the strength to save that person but to them that train isnt that far away or they arent sure how fast it would take for them to move said person :( its sad that we as humans deal with things like this and i do wish that we could all just automatically help others when the time came...would make life alot better for everyone.

    The point "collegebound" is it`s not free and never has been so you can shoulda-woulda-coulda all day and it doesn`t mean a damn thing. Right now, we are talking about what IS. I "should" be able to avoid reading idiotic comments from misinformed twats who have superiority complexes but I know that`s not going to happen.

    In psychology that is called bystander effect. Read about it it`s pretty crazy, people always think they will do the right thing but it`s very rare in those situations unless you are trained for them like that police officer.

    Oh my, did I hit a nerve? *chuckles*

    @Narvos
    Do I think everyone should have to enlist? Yes.

    Yep, I said it.

    I think you should, like in so many other countries - Germany, Israel, etc. - earn your right to live here with a few years of service. I never said everyone has to be a lifer, just that, like Axejst commented, you should have to serve a short period of time, be it in the military or with community service, defending the freedoms you so enjoy instead of just taking them for granted.

    Everyone is bitching about the TSA and the security crap they have to go through at the airports - as well as the personal freedoms that the government is eroding every single day. But, I`ll bet if every single man and woman of age stood to post for a few years there wouldn`t be a need. We`re fat, we`re lazy, we`re complacent and we take far too much for granted here in America. My opinion.

    "Should?" Reality is, defend your way of life or hav

    "Should?" Should`s got nothing to do with it. Reality is, defend your way of life or have it taken from you. If you won`t earn your keep you have no right to bitch. Again, my opinion.

    then all i have to say is that im glad that not everyone thinks alike and im doubly glad not everyone things like THAT...

    the reality is that our freedoms SHOULD come without a cost...the reality is that nobody SHOULD have to die for everyone else to be happy. the reality is that humans in general SHOULD grow the drat up and stop being greedy about everything. the reality is that there is no way that is going to happen because we are human and thats the way we operate.its not that i dont believe that people should just automaticaly have the right to live how we do now in our current society. with all the possibilities out there of what one could become you should have to do SOMETHING. all i said was i would rather not join the armed forces and do something that i

    i would much rather find a cure for cancer and/or AIDS or end world hunger than i would rather kill people who could have done those things, i would rather build homes rather than destroy them and i would rather save the world rather than cause the "apocalypse". im glad to see you are a dedicated soldier :) and im glad you are ok wherever you are best wishes to you

    Actually the reality is none of that will ever happen. How is curing cancer and aids going for you? How many homes have you built this year?

    No nerve was hit Jereth, just my opinion.

    The amount of Brainwashing that goes on in the military is utterly astounding. Some call it conditioning. Either way, you`re trained to kill or be killed, and thus your view on society has become Fight or change. Not a bad thing.

    The same can be said for an accountant. He works with boring numbers all day and makes a modest wage. Why shouldn`t everyone else have to be as bored as he is? Why shouldnt everyone have to clean the sewers or pick litter?

    Fat and lazy, yea, we are, but that comes from developing social trends which wont be changing any time soon. What i hate is a lackluster attitude to contributing to society, thus is why im highly backing the benefit changes in the UK (On Jobseekers and refused a job? Do community service!).

    Soldiers are needed (due mainly to drating religion, but thats a different argument). But so are accountants, cleaners, managers, bar maids etc. All cogs in the mechanism.
