The fact that dozens of people saw and heard Kitty Genovesse get stabbed to death over a half hour span in Kew Gardens, New York and did nothing blows my mind. Another situation that blew my mind was the girl in California who was gang raped for over two hours outside a school dance, and nobody else bothered to call the police. Because of these situations, it will be easy for me to remember the bystander effect and diffusion of responsibility, which is how we tell ourselves that we don't have to do anything because someone else will, for at least the next five years and most likely for the rest of my life. I find it appalling that nobody there did anything to save that girls life or stop that girl from being raped. These situations, our lectures, and the textbook made it clear that because of the rationalization we have in our thought process, we should just do our natural instinct and help people who are need of help.
