I have no idea about this song i chose it because it was called the bystander song, it was
blocked though (and i didn't want to be known as the kid who got the bystander song
unblocked), so i couldn't put the lyrics down.
This tells you something about being a bystander and what are the benefits and disadvantages.
Good morning on this clear Monday.
The first time I dialed 911 in New York was on a subway platform at 42nd Street — last
A woman was bleeding on her head and neck; she had fallen on the stairs between the
platform and turnstiles.
Some passengers hurried past her. Others stopped to look and moved on. Several took
out their phones — not to call for help, but instead to record the scene.
I chose these words because they describe a bystander, bystanders are weak and keep to
themselves and don't help.
Maybe you’ve witnessed a similar episode in the city:curious onlookers who
hesitate to act, or opt not to do anything at all.
It’s often what psychologists call “the bystander effect.”
“It’s a general term for people not reacting, when they’re in a group, to some sort of
situation that might call for a reaction — where responsible intervention would be the
right call, but no one is intervening,” said Katherine Fox-Glassman, a lecturer in the
department of psychology at Columbia University, whose research has focused on
judgment, decision-making and risk perception.
The 1964 murder of Kitty Genovese — who was attacked and stabbed repeatedly
on her way home from work — is one of the most cited references to the bystander effect
in New York City’s history, even though the role of the witnesses was greatly disputed in
later reflections and reporting.
The bystander effect can happen most anywhere — after a bike accident, a fight
on the train or a fender bender. But do cellphones exacerbate the phenomenon?
Though it could simply be “morbid curiosity,” Ms. Fox-Glassman explained, it could also
be bystanders wanting video of an event, as in cases of possible police brutality.
“The many recent examples of people having film evidence of an event that was later
contested — evidence allowing us to see what the truth was — that might be encouraging
more people to film situations that seem ambiguous,” she said.

I chose this article because I don't like when people are bystanders because bad things happen,
when you could be helping. Some articles show that being a bystander is good, this shows you
sometimes need to be involved. This shows that when you are a bystander bad things happen.
person who hates writing and cant stand doing this stuff and didn't care to much about this
project. I still want a good grade though so i did it i will share a link to a comic strip that may or
may not work, sorry if it doesn't.
