The more things change the more they stay the same. From USATODAY the following excerpt:
"Neighbor says they ignored dying woman's screams
Neighbors ignored a dying woman's cries for help early Saturday morning in New York City, newspapers report.
Ebony Garcia, 21, was stabbed after midnight at her cousin's apartment in College Point, N.Y.
A neighbor tells the Daily News that she collapsed on the sidewalk and screamed for help from neighbors and passing cars. Newsday says at least three people eventually called police, but it was too little too late.
Garcia died after police found her "lying in a pool of blood," the N.Y. Post reports. "One neighbor said she heard Garcia screaming for 35 minutes but ignored the cries because she thought the victim was drunk," the paper says.
Homicide detectives are hunting for the woman's ex-boyfriend."
