Bystanders ignore woman being raped

"(The video) shows one person looking out of her door probably three times," Walsh said. "It shows another person walking up, observing what's going on, then turning and putting up the hood of his sweatshirt."

At one point, the 26-year-old woman knocked on a door, yelling for the occupants to call police. A man inside that apartment told police he did not open the door or look out, but said he did call police — although they have no record of his call, according to court documents.


Once upon a time, I was running to get the bus and as I stepped off the sidewalk, I fell and sprained my ankle. A bus nearly ran over me.

I crawled onto the sidewalk.

I lay there, on the sidewalk, in full view of several dozen people waiting for a bus.

I could not get up and walk. I was still under the shock of falling and spraining my ankle. I just lay there.

It was several minutes before some ladies came by to ask me if I needed help.

Eventually, some paramedics arrived, and I was taken home.

I am not surprised at all that no one would help a woman being raped. If they won't help a woman with a sprained ankle, why would they help a woman in danger?
