    I’ve always heard the term as “bystander nonintervention.”

    Think it's called "diffusion of responsibility."

    I think that's always been an interesting psychological issue: the willingness or reluctance to intervene if you are a witness to a crime.

    Isn't there sort of a belief that the larger the crowd of bystanders, the less likely that someone might be to intervene? Sort of a situation where you hope/expect someone else witnessing it will intervene, or will be more capable of stopping the crime?

    Bernhardt added that there were not “dozens of people” in the car at the time but there were enough present that “collectively, they could have gotten together and done something.”
    Yeah, ... apparently 'something' was video.

    Passengers who recorded an alleged incident of sexual assault on a train near Philadelphia but did not intervene or call authorities could face charges.

    ... had an opportunity to intervene for 40 minutes while the victim was allegedly assaulted by the suspect ...

    FOURTY minutes and all you did is ... record?

    Yes, this is real. Apparently kids in costumes saying trick or treat are Satanic socialists. Has to be exhausting to be this angry all the time.
