Hartford decries hit and run incident ...

From Newsday:

A 78-year-old man is tossed like a rag doll by a hit-and-run driver and lies motionless on a busy city street as car after car goes by. Pedestrians gawk but appear to do nothing. One driver stops briefly but then pulls back into traffic. A man on a scooter slowly circles the victim before zipping away.

The chilling scene _ captured on video by a streetlight surveillance camera _ has touched off a round of soul-searching in Hartford (Conn.), with the capital city's biggest newspaper blaring "SO INHUMANE" on the front page and the police chief lamenting: "We no longer have a moral compass."

I have just one question: Where was Marshawn Lynch?
