Wichita: Home of Americas finest

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,287953,00.html



WICHITA, Kan. As stabbing victim LaShanda Calloway lay dying on the floor of a convenience store, five shoppers, including one who stopped to take a picture of her with a cell phone, stepped over the woman, police said.

The June 23 situation, captured on the store's surveillance video, got scant news coverage until a columnist for The Wichita Eagle disclosed the existence of the video and its contents Tuesday.

Police have refused to release the video, saying it is part of their investigation.

"It was tragic to watch," police spokesman Gordon Bassham said Tuesday. "The fact that people were more interested in taking a picture with a cell phone and shopping for snacks rather than helping this innocent young woman is, frankly, revolting."

The woman was stabbed during an altercation that was not part of a robbery, Bassham said. It took about two minutes for someone to call 911, he said.

Calloway, 27, died later at a hospital.

Two suspects have been arrested. A 19-year-old woman was charged with first-degree murder. Another suspect who turned himself in had not been charged as of Tuesday, the Sedgwick County prosecutor's office said.


The district attorney's office will have to decide whether any of the shoppers could be charged, Bassham said.

It was uncertain what law, if any, would be applicable. A state statute for failure to render aid refers only to victims of a car accident.

Eagle columnist Mark McCormick told The Associated Press he learned about the video when he called Wichita Police Chief Norman Williams to inquire about a phone call he had received from a reader complaining about a Police Department policy that requires emergency medical personnel to wait until police secure a crime scene before rendering aid. McCormick said Williams then unloaded on him about the shoppers in the stabbing case.

"This is just appalling," Williams told the newspaper. "I could continue shopping and not render aid and then take time out to take a picture? That's crazy. What happened to our respect for life?"

I sure hope they charge the shoppers for failure to assist the victim.

One would wonder, if they actually assisted, would the victim be alive?

It seems revolting, but depending on the amount of blood, it's possible that some of these people just thought she was drunk or something. I bet if you take a knife right to the heart, your bleeding might be mostly internal.

I know nothing about this, though, so maybe I'm wrong.

I second that, my good friends' mom was murdered there last year. I mean a 30 yr old guy stabbed this wonderful elderly woman to death for nothing and they caught him at least and he's going to be spending the rest of his life in a prison while our tax dollars are gonna pay for him to be alive, I mean why the **** can't they just kill people like that.

Yes.

This sort of thing happens at least 15x's a week in Wichita. I'm amazed I can make it down my driveway to grab the paper and return to my kitchen alive...............

I never realized Wichita was such a hellhole.

I know Dez Moinez has some shady neighborhoods, but you almost have to go looking for trouble.

A clear violation of the Good Samaritan law. They should be sentenced to one year in prison.

That's not the case in Wichita. Usually, trouble goes looking for you.

In the U.S. there is no affirmative duty to render aid to anyone, unless you were the cause of the injury. Even then all you really have to do is call 911.

Good Samaritan is a protection under the civil code, not criminal law. Good Samaritan laws protect people giving first aid from lawsuit if they attempt to render aid and the victim dies or is further injured.
