Thumbs up Thumbs down - March 9

March 09, 2013

Thumbs up to Paramount Elementary school students Drew Lobley and Zachary Arensdorf, whose generosity is going to benefit the area’s homeless. Drew collected 66 blankets and 12 pillows, and Zachary collected 25 boxes of cereal and a one-gallon can of pears that were donated to local shelters.

Thumbs down to the crowd of people who Charleston, W.Va., police say watched as a man was kicked, stomped and robbed at a downtown mall, taking photos and videos of the beating with their cellphones rather than using them to call for help. Such failure to help another human being in distress is disturbing.
