Jaywalking in Hartford

This is not a joke, and it's not pleasant to watch.

From Greg Laden's blog:

Hartford [CT] police ask anyone with information regarding this incident and/or the identity of the suspects to please contact Crime Scene Division (CSD) Detective Michael Chauvin at 860-757-4229 or CSD Commander Sergeant Jason Thody at 860-757-4225.
Contrary to the implication of Andrew Sullivan's post on this disturbing video, I think the bystanders did the right thing by leaving the man where he lay. I've always understood it's best not to move a person after a traumatic injury because of the risk of doing further damage to the spine. Paramedics can move the injured person in the right way after more fully assessing his/her condition.
If anyone knows better, please let me know. I don't want to pass on bad information about something like this.

What a world.
