I laughed as lily and I headed toward our first class of the day.12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7opmWak3iu 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡywfFVSZhGf "No its true Sally. Tons of people saw this woman being murdered yet no one did a thing. It wasn’t even short. From the article it says neighbors heard her screaming for half an hour as she ran down the street begging someone to help her. Yet no one did. No one even bothered calling the cops. By the time the police were informed it was already morning and she had been laying on the street bleeding all night long."12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeOq6kFoqQS 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOXhdkeoFhG "Lily you will believe anything. There is no way hundreds of people witnissed this and not one person called the police. No way. At least one would have tried to help." I scoffed stopping outside my math class. 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9Qdpv9ivrY 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKGNbM8QbyH "But..." 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3nFlAZzYFR 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFOITde2wJt "Look lily we are seniors in highschool now. We can’t go about believing everything we read on the internet. " I interrupted. 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuu9iFVqw6Z 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeamTwXT6Vy "Those news people probably just exaterated the report is all. Anyway i will see you later. Math will be starting soon." Lily looked like she wanted to argue more as her brown eyes flashed angrily, but I wasn’t about to stick around to listen to more of this obviously fake news report. So waving goodbye i quickly escaped into my classroom closing the door behind me. Its not that i doubt the woman died. No its not that. Its the fact that not one person even bothered calling for help. No way something like that could happen with so many people around. Chuckling to myself i took my seat in my little desk in the back of the classroom, and began pulling out my calculator and math book. 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYBnGuBUw7E 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0C8aUO6kkd ***12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkyoHsUEm0A "Rats that club Meeting went longer than I expected. Mom is going to kill me for being late for kyle’s choir concert." I muttered to myself hurrying down the sidewalk from school that day. 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVZbiFFUzc1 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡedEmnybuTv "Maybe if i cut through this alley I can get home quicker." Biting my lip i gazed thoughtfully down the dark shadow filled alley. I know the media always portrays alleys as dangerous but thats the media. Nothing they say is true right? Shaking away my doubts i stepped cautiously onto the gray cobblestone path leading into the shadows. Running my fingers nervously through my shoulder length black hair, my midnight blue eyes stared down each nook and cranny i passed fearfully expecting to be jumped at any moment. I breathed a sigh of relief as i saw people just up a head at the mouth of the alley. I could hear the buzz of cars zipping past as they zoomed down the busy road. I had just taken a step out of the shadows backpack slung tightly over my shoulders when i felt a hand clamp down on my arm. I gasp in fear as i am pulled back down the alley. 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHd45UxZzU0 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9PZk8F02fd "You my lovely get to come with me now." I hear someone say behind me. Screaming i manage to claw his hand off my arm. Racing into the light i race past person after person screaming for help. I am just turning a corner when i feel myself jerked backwards as my attacker catches up with me. I scream and fight as much as possible hoping to draw attention. Several people glance over at us, and i can see by their faces they know whats going on yet they just put their heads down and keep going. I couldn’t believe it. Tons of people passed us by as i was litterly dragged back to the alley to a waiting car yet not one person stopped to help. Quite the contrary. In fact i saw quite a few pick up the pace as they hurried past us pulling their hats farther down their face as if to block the scene from view. Tears flowed freely down my cheeks as i was shoved forcefully into a waiting car. Lily was right, over 50% of people won’t stop to help someone in need if they are in a group. Everyone expects someone else to step in and help so they just keep going and the victim’s are left to help themselves. I cried tears of frustration as the car pulled away and sped onto the highway with me in it. 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4tqIQOh1ia 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxZoC5j94S3 The end.12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ51T5m1Km4Z 12Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz9t0SjP9k7 Note: The Bystander Effect is very real and very much a problem. Most people if they see a person in danger or in need of assistance while others are around will not stop to help, because they assume someone else will step in. So they just keep going. In the end no one stops to help and the victim is left in danger. If you see someone in danger or in need of help great or small, even if you are in a group, assume that no one else will help and take that step yourself. You might end up being the only one who does.
