People are often too scared to help a fellow human being who is in trouble, and they usually have any number of excusesÖ they donít want to get involved! Gone are the days when if your car broke down, for example, every person who came along the road would stop to see if they could help. These days, helping someone in trouble could be expensive.

People know that if they witness an illegal activity, and say so to the appropriate authorities, their act of goodwill could cost them their whole way of life. They could be put in a witness protection program and to be a witness could even cost them their life. People would rather not help.
