Its called the bystander effect, theres a few studies on it as well

but of course I would help someone

i'd have to help out, did a silly thing a couple of years back, was dropping friends off in Glasgow after a night out, drove round a corner and seen 2 boys attacking another boy with what i thought was punches, i drove up to them as fast as i could, luckily it frightened the perps off, i got out the car to find the boy had been stabbed, i got him in the car and drove him to the hospital!!
In hind sight, maybe i wouldn't do this particular thing again, but your 'fight or flight' takes over when it happens!!!

Me and a m8 went to the aid of a chap getting and absolute tanking in Glasgow, the guy we just helped then pulled a blade on us.

im female, and used to work in the prison, that really opened my eyes as to the fact that people dont care any more what they do or who to!!!! sad the way the world has turned out. I dont think i would get involved, i have two little children that i want to return home to!!! I would alert someone or do something tho!!! Hard to say tho as adrenaline does take over and your instinct, maybe if i was put on the spot i would intervene.

i would definately help

saw someone getting the crap kicked out them in a club once, bouncers were nowhere near so i helped the guy who was in the ground trying to protect himself, ended up getting bottled and thrown out though, luckily the bottle didnt smash and the guy i helped was ok in the end :)

In my experience its that people are more willing to help women with a problem than a man, the amount of times I have seen a woman launch into a attack on a man in the street often when people are on a night out and then random bystanders then attack the man as if he was the one who attacked the woman when he was just standing there getting punched and clawed by the woman!

Not the same but similar it also comes into effect that why on earth if a woman drops shopping people are willing to help but if a man does people dont!

I was attacked once at a train station outside in Surrey, there were taxi drivers and people going into the train station and was broad daylight, it was quite horrible looking at people and knowing they weren't helping me, a long time ago yet the attack left less on my memory than the people that ignored to help me believe it or not..

I find this sort of thing a fascinating study into how humans function towards each other. Last time I saw someone being attacked in the street, it was a policeman. People seemed split into three categories, one batch who watched and took photos and videos, another lot who did everything they could to pretend it wasn't happening, and then another group whose instinct was to join in, and utterly destroy the guy.

Me, I pulled four people off him before other police arrived and chased off the rest. I'd never leave someone just to maybe die.

would step in after accessing the risks to myself, 10 on 1 would just be stupid. Have picked up cons who have just been released from prison and dropped them in town to get on the train. Was very busy road, incidentally I picked up a prison officer a few weeks later at 7am **** out of his head after a night out in a town 20 miles away.

saw a guy getting bashed in by another in full view of hundreds of people in birminghams bull ring. Went of for a good 5 minutes and one guy was getting mashed.

All the people just stood still and watched.

"something like 20% of people would help you if its busy and 40% if there are not many people around."

obviously not if you look at this forum - "OH YEAH I WOULD HELP I WOULD DESTROY THEM" is big and hard on the internet but when you see someone attacked with a knife your inner self would run like hell.

It all depends on the scenario really, but saying you would help on here doesn't count.

London is a dump.

I saw this video on Youtube once of a homeless person located somewhere in America, who got hit by a car in broad daylight by some idiot, they then instantly sped off leaving him sprawled out in the middle of the road.
And then for the next couple of minutes, everybody was driving around this guy in the road, nobody stopped, and everybody just walked past him too. Eventually someone called for help, but most of the people standing there were taking pictures.

Would defo help ouut after assessing it.

clicky here
An interesting read numpty and I think it is true in all these situations that women empathise but expect the men present to step in and help, rather than do something themselves, even phoning!!

As to an attack in a UK street - I might call out and I would definitley phone the cops but I wouldn't physically intervene, although I may have done when younger and I certainly have in fights at school.

Did one have an office chair? oO

Ive only ever witnessed one guy getting attacked, but that was shortly after the same guy tried picking a fight with me, i ignored him,he obviously moved on and bit off more than he could chew. Sometimes that person you might see taking a beating is the instigator, and i would hate to step in and help some mug who tried to pick a fight with the wrong person. But also, like others, i would assess a situation, and step in if i thought i could actually help and if person genuinely deserved help.

Deffinitely help them. Have done a few times

Once when 4 lads came barreling out of the local news agent running towards me with the shop owner screaming after them. I tackled one of them to ground and dragged him back to shop owner.

Similarly at another shop when my bro and me were walking his dog on the field behind, 3 lads cam running out with their hands full of stuff. We gave chase, caught one, brought him back to shop. Turned out they had push the owners wife out of the way (65 years old) grabbed as much booze as they could and legged it. We stayed with them until the police came.

Also when on holiday in tenerife sat outside a bar one night we kept seeing one lad who was very drunk, moving from bar to bad, getting thrown out and abused. TO be fair it was his fault as he was far too drunk. Then in the bar next to us, he letched on to 2 girls, who were with 4 massive blokes. The blokes didnt take it too well, so again my bro and me stepped in and said we would get rid of him (even though he was drunk he didnt deserve a beating), so frog marched him off about a mile up the road so he couldnt find his way back :)

I think everyone should step in, if everyone did then less people would chance a mugging or street robbery for fear of people power.

There was a good documentary on this once that made me think twice though as it showed people who had stepped in to help but had got stabbed or shot for it. Didnt deter me fully though
