In crime, the role of witnesses is often overlooked, so what can they do to help?
What are they?
In a crime there are four types of people. Firstly, there are the Criminals who commit the crime, secondly there are the Normal Witnesses who see the crime but they do not do anything, next there are the Helpful Witnesses who see the crime happen and use one of the methods I will list down below, and lastly there is the Victim who is the recipient of the crime.
What do Helpful Witnesses do?
Well... they can...
Call either 999 or 911
Remember to Call, Speak, Explain
Illogical thinking will not work
Make good notes of what happened
Engage rather than exit the process
What do the Unhelpful Witnesses do (or not do)?
As I said there are two types of witnesses, the Helpful ones and the Unhelpful ones. So, why do the Unhelpful ones not help? Well... it's a bit complicated as there are lots of reasons why they do not help so why don't you post a comment on why you think they do not help?
I think that no matter the situation, the witnesses should do something!
Please comment what you think about this!
