How do you think about the silent of good people in front of the actions of bad people?

Today on the way when I went to the office I saw a thief try to take a girl's bag, but no one helps her, even me because that thief not went alone, they have more than six strong man went together. I'm not strong enough to save her in this case. But I always thinking about no one has even a small action to help her. May be all of us are scare to be revenged.

How do you do in this case & how do you think about the silent of the good people in front of the actions of bad people?

Cam on Teresa! We call a person of those characters, a dumb devil. If I were in your place, I would take out my mobile and call the police. We have to do anything to stop those thieves. Teresa, is it possible to be one of your friends? Thanks.

I will probably run and hide, but to call the police, or even take the picture of the thief, if it is possible. :D

 It happens  all the time and everywhere   :(  . Yes it is shocking  but it is  true few people step in for help  . Coz they don't want to get themselves  involved  in big problems  .  I have watched  many TV  programs  showing  such social experiences  about people reactions  . In ur case  , I don't blame them confronting  a theif isnt an  easy thing , he might be armed  . The loss of her bag is nothing in front of a loss  of a human  . There is a more shocking experience  that of the American  psychological  scientist  Stanley  Milgram have done  see the links down ....

First of all, are you and that girl ok? You said that they tried to take her bag. Ofcourse it is wrong when the people don't even do some actions. But you did right! Just imagine, what could happen if you tried to help her... I guess they just took her bag and escape, right? The people like them could attack you and that girl and everyone who tried to help... One bag is not so bad in case that they could attack you... And yes, better was to catch them at photo and call the police.
Evil happens because of opportunity and the silence of good people.

In theory, it's right & wise. But you have already taken the right choice to keep silent this morning because it was impossible for you or even the authority to impede the gangster brutality.

Theft, robbery and other crimes are everywhere nowadays in our society. Keep your eyes open, live simply and try pushing the people who are in charge of this issue to do better.
Oh, i thought that i read Rosemary's comment... Yes, Rosemary's comment is better and more informative.

   Thanks Roman  , I wish if u could see Dr. Stanely  video   . Human behaviors are more deeper than right or wrong    :)

I don't want to watch that video if there is violence... Sorry, Rosemary.

Thank you for sharing. why I didn't call to the police? because if I call, after that there was no one stay there when they come :( & may be only me stay there & waiting for the police. That's why.

Yes, this happens in everywhere. But when the good people are keep silent in front of bad things, given that the sign of instability in that social. As Martin Lutherking said "It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, "Wait on time”.

You're quite right.

Why we keep silent in this case because I lose faith & see the results of words, actions derived from conscience and responsibility become ignored, mocked by others, even causing damage what do not deserve for myself. I'm not strong to change it, but I never compromise with evil. Try to make this world better.
