I suppose, it's been around for a while, but we have a new case of "Bad
Samaritan" (with a bonus "Evil Samaritan" further down in the post).
> Bad Samaritan: Man Robs Drunk On Subway Tracks, Leaves Him To Get Hit

> This guy is just the opposite. A disgusting robbery was caught on tape

Searching for versions of this story, I came across a couple of other
titles that include "Bad Samaritan". Yahoo and ABC News also had the
"No-good Samaritan" version.
