    Yeah i saw this earlier today. The guys a crazy driver.
    But gives a good description on how bad the country is at the moment.

    Excuse me ignorance - but it doesn't seem as bad as I thought it would be.

    They can't show all of Haiti, so of course there will be many worse off areas.

    doesnt look that bad at all to me either. By the way the news described it, most of the buildings fell down. Those videos show about 1% collapsed.

    It doesn't look as bad as i thought but then again they ain't showing all of Haiti

    i agree doesn't look bad, why put Haiti Earthquake as the title on the page, with a video that shows so little damage, it's not going to make people feel sorry for them. a video of people sleeping in the streets etc would get more sympathy

    agreed- this video is a real own goal if it was shot to get some sympathy. Now I just think its a huge media exaggeration (nothing new there then!).

    Maybe it was shot before the earthquake!


    Is that supposed to be funny? :thinking:

    Maybe there was no earthquake and it was all made up by the media. Anybody been there to confirm?

    the way they were talking about it in the news i thought every single building was grounded

    Like i previously mentioned. They are only showing a tiny bit of Haiti, If you looked at the news reports or other pictures (CNN have HD pictures) then you will see there are so many completely destroyed buildings.
    If you think it's not bad, then why is the death toll at around 110,000 people? and that's dead, the injured could be ten times that.

    i'm not saying that it hasn't happened and that 1000's of people haven't died, i've seen the pictures and read all about it. i'm just saying that a video which shows no damage to buildings and people going about as normal isn't going to help them at all. especially when it's put on a page titled "haiti earthquake" people will expect to see damage and when they don't, they'll be saying the same as people said on here.

    No they won't. They'll say there's a view of ONE street and a few buildings in an island that's 10,000 square miles large with a population of 10 million.

    Also, they may also notice that a number of the building on the video are flattened.

    Then they'll also watch the news and realise this video shows one of the better parts of the island and that here is utter devastation on other parts.

    Of course there will always be the idiots who do watch it, completely miss the point and say "Oh well, it's not all bad over there. What time does Big Brother start?"

    I see your point. I do think that they didn't choose the right area to make the video, maybe they just chose a random street.
    But there ARE flattened buildings and people in extreme poverty in the videos.
    But i'm sure most people would have seen the worst devastation on the news or on pictures already like i have.

    you don't seem to get what i'm saying, other people do so i'm not going to explain it to you like i would explain something to a 9 year old.

    read the first few posts in this thread, unless those people are idiots which i'm sure they are not (at least they haven't been idiotic enough to get suspended) i'm not an idiot either and if this video had been the only evidence of the haiti earthquake i had seen, i'd be thinking "oh well, it's not that bad" because like the post below yours says, they didn't choose the right area to make the video.
