Yet, most people will not lend a helping hand. For example, in 1964, there was a bizarre crime in New York City; a young woman named Catherine Genovese, commonly called Kitty, was murdered and thirty-eight onlookers witnessed the act and yet nobody came to her assistance or phoned the emergency services.…

    Many incidents go by without people even noticing, and this causes so many people to get hurt. When people just stand by and not help someone in need, it shows the impact of society on them.

Incidents like the Kitty Genovese Incident have proved that others will stand by and just watch someone else be stabbed because they think someone else will help her. Or they don't want to get hurt themselves.…
