After park attendees saw a robber running away with stolen money, they began to chase him and blocked his getaway car from exiting the park. The thief was arrested.

Lately, it seems as though it's rare to find people who want to get involved in a crime they are witnessing. Recently, a crowd of people stopped to film a woman who was being savagely beaten - no one stepped in to stop the beating, or even called the police.

Would you risk getting hurt, or just getting involved with a crime in general to stop it from happening? Do the benefits of potentially saving someone or stopping something bad from happening outweigh the danger that might come with the situation?
