Yesterday on the news I heard about some guy who attacked someone who he didn't know at all with a hammer for no reason on a subway in Philadelphia. There were about 10 or 11 witnesses (including the attackers about 5 y/o son) who did nothing. Some assh*le actually took the victims cellphone when he dropped it. I seem to be the only person who heard about this. I would link it, but saw it on the today show. It was some pretty crazy sh*t.

That's almost as bad as the bus beheading a few weeks ago. There's some scary people out there.

I read about this.

The sick part is that none of the bystanders are legally bound to helping the victim. The sickest shit of all was the fact that the victim was sleeping.

Who brings a hammer with them on the subway...?


Someone who plans on beating another person with it.

Seriously though, that is pretty screwed up.

But, yeah, bystander effect (pscyh 101), some woman got stabbed in Walmart and no one gave damn.

There is a case of a women being raped in the courtyard of a apartment complex and noone even called the police even though people admitted to here yells for help.

Well i think he even left and noone did anything to help her then came back later and killed her and still noone did anything.

Yeah. They may be morally bound. But as far as the legal system goes, they are not obligated to get involved whatsoever.

My question was if you honesly believe that we should be legally bound to help people?

Noone should be legally bound to help as far as you will go to jail if you don't. If someone is being attacked and you can help you should do something. Given i don't expect anyone to stop someone with a gun, but if someone is trying to rape a 10 year old and they don't have a weapon then you are a disgusting human being if you don't try to help.

Yep. It's a sociology thing. People are less likely to take action in groups than they are when they're alone because they always expect someone else to do it. That's why when women are being raped they're supposed to yell "Fire!"
I sure as hell wouldn't sit around waiting for someone else if someone told me my shit was on fire.

Yeah because it is wise to confront a maniac with a hammer who just beat some guy to death. Maybe if they were a green beret or something but what can you expect the average Joe to do.

He didnt't kill him. Broke a couple fingers and the dude needed some stitches on his head/back of neck but thats about it.
