^ Should be anyone's ordinary human caring to help a fellow human in trouble.

I do think the mailman was overly concentrated on his job, and like he said, he thought the body was part of Halloween.

KMGH-TV reports the carrier has been temporarily taken off the route. The family says the carrier told them he thought the body was a mannequin, a decoration left over from Halloween.

I can easily see that happening.

So is the family mad at every single person that drove by? or walked by? Morally he should have done something, but legally? No he didn't have to do anything, this guy shouldn't have been taken off his route. No legit reason for it

Yeah! Screw everyone else and common decency! It's the American way and our legal right!

No, But he shouldn't have any bad come to him because he didn't help. I mean when was the last time you stopped to help the guy who was on the side of the road with his flashers on? or a guy stuck in the snow? or with a flat tire? if you can't think of at least 1 times you stopped in the last year then you have no right to say anything about common decency... Just you let you know, in the last month I pulled a car out of the ditch (Yay for auti Awd, and providing hookups to the frame) jumped a guys car, help change a tire in ca driving back to Alaska, and I almost always stop to see if someone needs help. I mean I'm lucky, if someone needs help and I'm out doing something for my boss I can take the 5 mins and see what I can do, but most people might get fired for that. I'm just happy I don't live in an at will state...

I've stopped to render assistance plenty of times, in all cases so far thankfully none of them have been life threatening or stuck in dangerous conditions. In all cases where I have been concerned for someone's life, I have always checked to see that they are OK. It's my civic duty to do so, and everyone else should do the same regardless of the law. Everyone should perform their civic duty within their ability willingly, without being forced to by laws.

It takes 2 seconds to tap someone on the shoulder if they are slumped over, even if you are not sure if it's a halloween prop. From touching he would see that it's not rigid like a mannequin and investigated further that it is an unconscious human being and work out if in fact they are simply sleeping or something else.
