I watch that show "I Survived..." and I've seen several episodes where a woman was attacked, raped, and stabbed or beaten, and when she escapes and runs for help, the first person she cries out to won't help her! One episode, a woman got away from a man who raped her and beat her for 5 days... when she ran out of the house naked and bleeding, she flagged down a car with a woman in it.... but the woman in the car said "I'm sorry, I can't help you, I have to get to work." Other instances have been met with people turning off their lights and closing the blinds, or people running back inside their houses. WTH??
Is anyone out there a psychiatrist? I would love to know why this happens....

Many are willing to make an emergency call, few are willing to physically get involved citing safety concerns. We stop and physically help all of the time. We even helped evacuate a family from a roll over accident in So America. My father (retired Battalion Fire Chief) and I also provided first aid with the help of a bus driver and his supplies.
