This is what's wrong with it.

“But it does go to show modern society, where somebody chooses to video another person on the ground rather than going to help. Whatever happened to the good Samaritan?”

People think it's perfectly acceptable to film others at their low point and then post it online. I wish it was legal or even encuraged to knock phones out of people's hands if they're doing something stupid like this or even in general really when they're not paying attention to their surroundings.

Yeah, I'd be sympathetic if it weren't Barnaby Joyce. And he's clearly not dying.

Unfortunately he's actually a zombie who can't be killed. We drove past his electoral office on the way north to Easter in Qld and I lamented to G that we appeared to be fresh out of rotten tomatoes and eggs to throw at it...

Fair call on Barnaby but my comment on society still stands!

I wonder if this story made it into The Australian? If it was a member of Labor or the Greens it would be front page news.
