  • Bystanders has caused many casualties

    There were many crimes that happened cause of bystanders that didn’t help. Take a case that happen in china . Yue Yue a 2 years old child that hit by 2 cars but no one helped her. There is 18 bystanders that didn’t help yue yue and the 19th woman helped her but its too late. Yue yue died. That’s mean if the 1st bystander helped her and brought her to hospital. Yue yue’s life could be saved. That’s why bystanders must be punished.

  • Bystanders are inhuman if they don't help . Inhuman people should be punished .

    Humans are a social race . If social norms are not respected , how do we expect to live ? What if we got into an accident , and people just went by , looking at us as if saying " your bad luck " . How would we feel ? Would we still live after that if the accident is fatal like the case of Yue Yue ? But , bystanders cannot be punished physically , as they did not perpetrate the crime . But , they should be punished socially , like shunning them from social life .

  • They are just as guilty

    For example if someone was to drive off the road and you didn't stop and neither did the next ten people didn't stop, but by the eleventh person it was too late they were already dead. Just for victims, by the time someone was to stand up it could be too late..

  • They are just as guilty

    Like for example if someone drove off the road and crashed and you didn't stop and neither did the next ten people, but as soon as the eleventh person stopped it was too late, the person was already dead. That is kind of how it is with a bully and it's bystanders like by the time someone was to stand up for the victim it could be too late.

  • If It Were You

    Witness of a crime should absolutely be charged for not helping when possible. No its not their responsibility but it should be human nature to intervene when witnessing a crime or wrongful act. That's whats wrong with the world now nobody will take action until their on the other side of the fence and someone fails to hep them. Yes it could in some cases lead to more injuries or deaths but help from some one else could possibly save a life

  • Not doing anything is understandable

    A person might be afraid of retaliation if its a crime. If its an accident the person may be afraid of getting run over themselves. There are a number of good reasons somebody might not intervene. And even if there's not really a reason the person watching could've simply been in shock over it and so didn't do anything because of their emotional reaction to the scene not because of callously refusing to take responsibility.

  • It isn't their business.

    During a crime if a person is not directly involved it should be up to them whether or not they get involved. By punishing bystanders you are punishing them for a crime they did not commit. Why should someone risk their life for someone they don't know, unless they feel the need.

  • People doesn't know everything, and sometimes do dumb thing.

    When someone else is not crying for help, other people doesn't have to help them. There can be many reasons for not helping other people. Maby they didn't wanted to get revenge by criminal, or they just had more important things to do. They can think that other people was already helping, and 911 will come soon. When people are not helping another, that means that there are other things that are more important to them. It is very hard for the judge to decide who is responsible for this crime.

  • Punishing someone for witnessing something.......Welcome to 1984

    In a free society there can't be an authoritarian presence, and implementing any law even close to something like this would mean nothing less than creating a big brother style police state.
    This essentially means that anyone who sees anything what the government deems illegal and either doesn't react at all or reacts in an unpopular manor could be held liable, depending on the governments assessment............All of you yes voter should go for a year long trip to Saudi Arabia, after than I'd love to see if you still think totalitarianism is the way to go..

  • They are only innocents themselves.

    Although I think that we should help people in need, it is completely understandable that people wouldn't help out. The least someone could do is call the emergency services or police to help, because that is what they are for. It is not my job to help someone being mugged, but calling the police would be enough. If someone was shot in an alley, people would not try and stop the shooter in fear of getting shot. We are all civilians who (supposedly) have authorities and laws there to protect us, but this isn't the case.
