Over the years, there have been cases of people being harmed, violated and robbed in public, with no one willing to stand up and help, as spectators watch these situations unfold, and offer no assistance. The most recent case took place in Baltimore, Maryland, where a crowd beat, stripped and robbed a tourist on St. Patrick’s Day with spectators watching and laughing as the event took place. Displaying the type of antagonistic behavior you would expect to see written into a Hollywood film, or television series, but not in a real life situation.
Kathryn Raaker is available to address the following questions,
- Is human depravity on the rise in America?
- Are social responsibilities a thing of the past?
- Should spectators be held accountable for not interceding on behalf of a victim?
- Can these types of incidents be prevented?
- Is the violence portrayed in TV and Cinema affecting the way people act?
