I suppose the instinct for

I suppose the instinct for self-preservation is stronger. In addition, when people come across a bizarre or shocking scene, it's impossible to know how they will react. Years ago, I witnessed a man beating a woman senseless in a restaurant parking lot from my window seat on a public bus. As the bus passed by the horrific scene, not a single person said a word or yelled for the bus driver to stop to help the woman. I know it's terrible, but who can know the truth of a situation when one is an outsider unless informed? Weird and really terrible things happen all the time. All anyone really knows is what they are doing or thinking (and sometimes not even then).
