    Well, unfortunately it makes sense. People have always been afraid to step out of the crowd and affirm themselves. This goes on any type of situation. I don’t really think we will see any change in this regard. I think the only people that would step up and help the person are people who either have been in that situation themselves so they can empathize with him, or if their job forces them to step up in this or other kinds of situations so they are used to it. I think some kind of programs which would encourage people to step up against the norm would benefit this and many other kinds of situations out there.

    That is so sad. Of course, that makes sense, but it is still awful. I think that it is the responsibility of every adult to properly train themselves in First Aid and CPR. That injured person could be a friend or family member, and it is sad that too many people aren’t prepared or equipped to help in an emergency.

    I remember learning about this in Business Ethics.
    It has always baffled me. One thing we were taught is to point at someone and specifically tell them to call 911. That way there was no bystander effect. That one person knew it was their responsibility.
    So the best thing to do is take charge and tell someone to do the right thing while you’re helping .

    That is horrible for people to be ignored when they obviously need help. There is nothing wrong with being different. People are rude. Would they like to be the one needing help?
    If I was to see someone needing help, I would be the first person to help.
