    Shoppers step over stabbing victim, take pictures

    As a stabbing victim lay dying on the floor of a Kansas 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 incident, captured on a store surveillance video, received scant news coverage until a columnist for The Wichita Eagle first disclosed Tuesday the existence of the video and its contents.

    Police have repeatedly 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."

    LaShanda Calloway was stabbed during a fight at the store, but it was not part of a robbery, Bassham said. It took about two minutes for someone to call police to report the crime, he said.

    Calloway, 27, died at a hospital from her injuries.

    "The lack of concern for humanity over this young woman's life is deeply troubling," Bassham said.

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

    It's good to see society is just as wonderful as it used to be. It's no worse, really.

    I was being facetious. Society sucks more now than it has in a long, long time.

    Or that the defecit will fall by 205 billion. Still a ways to go, but that's good news.
