The "phone-obsessed" don't notice life threatening situations

The

Phone-Obsessed Train Passengers Didn't Spot Gunman!!

(NEWSER– When a killer in search of a  victim pulled out his handgun on a crowded commuter train in San Francisco last  month, the dozens of passengers nearby were so engrossed in their smartphones  and tablet computers that they didn't notice a thing, police say.

 

Security video  shows the gunman repeatedly flashing the .45 caliber pistol with other  passengers close by, pointing it across the aisle and even using the hand  holding the gun to wipe his nose before shooting university student Justin  Valdez dead, apparently at random, police tell the San Francisco Chronicle.
