Every man is guilty for all the good he didn't do.
I once, in broad daylight, saw two pickpocketers (a girl and a guy) trying to open another girls napsack from behind while walking.. I noticed this and quickly shouted and pointed to the theives, in hopes to prevent what was going to happen.. others stopped, some kept walking, security or police were nowhere to be found.. they DID stop, but the boy reached into his coat and pulled out a knife, as if to say "mind your business, or else"... I was puzzled and afraid.. called the police, as they (thieves) walked off... |
What bothered me the most, is that these very two theives, if even caught, would be set free, with "lack of proof", as explained by the police... "lack of proof", meaning there'd have to be more eye witnesses to actually testify, and in most cases, people choose to be silent... then he later explained that I should just keep to myself and let the police handle such crimes... I guess that's fair, because it's only care for my safety... But I still wonder, as this does not solve anything.. the solution lies in the very root of the problem...and no, it's not foriegners, nor the "elite chinese".
Some people are afraid to step in if they encounter such incidents, not only fear for their lives, but fear to waste their time, for results that favour the criminals... as time passes, more people are afraid and choose to be silent, and before you know it, here becomes a whole society full of fear and doubt, in which case, the criminals knowing this, perform even more crimes, with the knowledge that they can very well get away with it.
It seems there has been a backward movement in social development.... it which lies one root of the problem... If only the initial fear was overcome, others would follow to prevent these crimes, and testify against them... slowly, criminals would then realize this, giving them less opportunity to perform such crimes.... and before you know it, crime will forever dissapear... ok, not totally, but it will no doubt decrease... but for now, that is obviously not the case... Is it reversible? well, with a population of 1.4 billion, and a very small percentage being the criminals... it should be quite easy... it's just a matter of "breaking the ice", who would like to step up?... The other root? is well, pure evil, there's no point blaming who or why theives steal, or why others kill, hurt, lie.. etc. etc. etc... there is no explanation for evil, except evil itself.
