What would you do?

Did anyone see that programme last night about strangers helping people out that were being beaten up/ robbed etc.

Whilst I can understand that there is a big risk involved in going to the aid of someone as you dont know if they may have a knife etc, I found it really disturbing about the girl on the bus who had her head stamped on by a gang of older girls and everyone else on the bus just sat there and did nothing. I actually found this more sickening than the actual act of violence itself.

What would you do if you witnessed something like this?

It's easy to say what you would do, until you are actually confronted with a situation. You may surprise/disappoint yourself

i can appreciate that, but on the programme last night the girl was 11 - same age as my girl. Just got to thinking how I would feel if it happened to my daughter.

I also think that if one person had made a stand against these bullys on the bus then the rest would have probably got up as well.

Absolutely.

For instance, I often have a "no-one can hurt me without me kickin the shuuuush out of them" attitude. I'd say I'd never put my kids in danger to become involved in a situation but I did and I have to come to the help of someone else ( because the aggressors pishhed me off doin that in front of my babies. ) Have to remember to put our own kids first.

If that happened to my daughter, I'd have wanted someone to help her out too.

Makes me angry when people dont have the common humanity to help a vulnerable person in need.

Hard situation, isnt it?

It is a hard situation, but then I wouldnt want my daughter to see me standing by and watching someone getting beaten for no reason, and not doing anything to help,

It's not simply a "Jump in" or "Watch/Ignore" situation.
There are alternatives, such as alerting the driver, calling the police, making other passengers aware and taking descriptions etc.

All of which don't carry the same threat of coming to bodily harm yourself.

Exactly my point, there is something a bystander can do without just sitting back and pretending it isnt happening.

I once stepped in and grabbed a guys arm as he was about to punch someone in the face to make him stop. I then went further down the road to find a group of about 5 kicking the other victims friend against a wall, so I shouted at them and they all ran for it. I took both the guys to my house and called an ambulance because one of them was bleeding all over his head and his face.

When they left I broke down into tears and I was terrified. Momentary braveness!

I have stepped in when a large group of schoolkids were taking it in turns to run and kick one lad laying on the floor. It was right by a mainroad with a lot of drivers slowing down to rubberneck but not actually stop. I shouted at them and stood between them and the boy on the floor, they squared up to me but I stood my ground until one of the drivers came to help and they all moved on. The boy on the floor didnt want to call the police, just wanted to go home.
What annoyed me most was the fact that all the male drivers stayed in their cars and watched whilst I was surrounded, and it was another female that pulled over to help.

It is scary but as you saw sometimes just yelling at them to stop is enough and imagine how you would have felt if you just walked past and did nothing and then found out later that guy had died

Woah I bet that was scary

I do think its harder for men to step in, I also think they are more likely to be turned on than women

it was scary as Im only 5ft and they all totally dwarfed me! I just kept thinking that if it was one of my boys on the floor I would hope someone would step into help.......plus I have to admit I did bring myself down to their level with my language :oops:
