Although most people do not like to even get involved in another persons problems we as citizens have a personal duty to attempt to help or call the police if we notice someone getting attacked Catherine Genovese arrived home to her apartment building in Queens late one night to the chock of a man attacking her The man stabbed her with a knife and left her for dead He returned twice in a time period just over half an hour to finish her off The police received not one call until after Catherine died from her wounds while it only took them two minutes to arrive on the scene The people who witnessed the attack on Catherine reflect as cowards showed nothing but selfishness and hold partial responsibility of Catherines painful death First of all Catherines neighbors acted like cowards by ignoring such an important and deadly situation One man claim sthat he called a friend across town for advice on the matte and then walked across the building to try and push the burden of calling the police off on an elderly woman Another woman exclaimed that she would not allow her husband to get involved and made the attack out as just a lovers quarrel Yet another man claims that he simply went back to bed rather than dealing with the matter Secondly Catherines neighbors not wanting to get involved show their despicable selfishness It would have takedn just one selfless act of kindness and respect for human life to have simply called the police to deal with the attack One man yelled from the window to leave her alone but still did not bother to call for help Finally Catherines selfish and cowardly neighbors should hold partial moral responsibility for her gruesome murder If any one neighbor had shown kindness enough to call the police when Catherines screams first bellowed she most likely would not have died that day
