Don't get involved

The recent case of a video showing bystanders in China walking by as two-year girl was twice run over by vans is creating considerable angst in both China and the West.
This reminded me of a famous case Murder of Kitty Genovese which occurred in New York in 1964. However, that case involves more ambiguity (and controversy) because there is (thankfully) no video of it and the neighbours alleged lack of response.
It is a good time for us all to read the Parable of the Good Samaritan.
