    Hiya,Alrighty, you’ll need to look through Social Psych research – try using the word “bystander” in your searches – “bystander response” etc. There was quite a bit of study done during the 1970sBooks:- “Social Psychology in Natural Settings….” by P.G Swingle – did some experients on how witnesses react. – “The Unresponsive Bystander – Why Doesn’t He Help?” B. LataneMore recent stuff – news pieces & articles you can download….quite a few case studies etc”Will Eyewitnesses to Crime Take Action” – news article [external link] …”They Know I Saw It: Evaluation Apprehension and Diffusion of Responsibility in Bystander Reactions to a Violent Crime.” [external link] …”Crime, Commitment & the Responsive Bystander” 1972 T. Moriarty. [external link] …”The unresponsive bystander: are bystanders more responsive in dangerous emergencies?” [external link] …Also try looking up “Bystander effect” – here’s the Wikipedia start – got some good links…. [external link] …Hope these help as a start….Good luck :)
