" Still indifferent after the 2-year-old girl was run over?"

Blame their mamas who teach them from young to 'mind your own business', 'buyao guan xian shi'!

I personally have done things in emergencies in China. The 'National Thinking' is FEAR!!! So many fe ...

Not going to happen. It's a nation of sheep as you say and as this thread shows Chinese people would more commonly stand around like stunned mullets than take any practical action. Crowds will flock to a traffic accident as if this was a major source of excitement in their lives. ( Sheep, fish and birds - that ought to cover it. )

As remarked by other posters on this thread it would be more common for the police to do absolutely nothing so no justice would be served if that was the only approach. The foreigners are attempting to act like police because the Chinese police simply won't do their jobs efficiently. Unless one has a good deal of "guanxi" relationship with a local police office, they will most commonly ignore you unless you are willing to hand over a well stuffed red envelope. That's the typical system of justice, law and order in beautiful downtown China.

Your wife must be a Chinese?  Only the Chinese would stay away as they have seen too many cases of good samaritans being wrongly accused. And also, they have been drilled from young to 'mind your own business', 'buyao guan xian shi'.
