Look around you. This is the world we are living in nowadays. Crimes widespread. Not only in daylight. But even in the presence of other citizens/onlookers. Criminals becoming more daring.
Because nobody is brave enough to help or take actions against them.
Because they prefer not to be the next target. They prefer to wait for the authorities to arrive. Which would give enough times for the criminals to fled.
So, what is the consequences? ---> CRIMINALS BECOMING MORE DARING BECAUSE NOBODY IS GONNA TAKE ACTIONS AND THEY WOULD HAVE AMPLE TIMES TO DO WHATEVER THEY WERE DOING.
What if this sort of things happen to your family or someone who is close to you? Would you get mad? Would you blame the onlookers for not helping?
I BET YOU DO. Of course, who wouldn't right?
But then, why wouldn't you do the same thing for them? Why wouldn't you help when you see this kind of things happening right in front of your eyes. WHY???
At least try. PLEASE. Don't just stand there. Especially when there are more on your side. THIS IS NOT A FREE SHOW. That should at least scare the criminals away. Remember - THERE IS ALWAYS STRENGTH IN NUMBER.
