They thought he was left in the care of his older sibbling. (Byford,p.235) In this case the bystanders didn 't intervene, because of the numbers of other people around, some were even alone, when they encounterd the three boys, but because the thought they didn 't have the right to intrude other people 's family life. The two abducters were aware of this, and even told witnesses that he was their brother. Comparing the cases of Catherine Genovese and James Bulger, both of them took place in a public place and in both them a large number of bystanders witnessed parts of the crime (38 people in both cases) Both of the approaches, the experimental method and the discourse analysis tried to explain, why despite the number of witnesses, none of them intervened to that degree, that both of the vitims could have been spared with their
The reason my husband asked me about it was, years later after I had begun to date and finally married, I saw a news story about two robbers arrested not far from where we live. The report mentioned it was two men, dressed in black, who had robbed a home and tried to kill one of the owners. The reporter said the third man, who had worn a skull mask over his face, had never been caught. I had started panicking at this, and eventually told my husband all about what had happened. He knew my brother had died, and that it had been during an attempted robbery, but not much else.

The saying “second time's the charm” didn't apply, because the state did not triumph.
For example, former Atlanta police officer Elton Augustin was sentenced to two years in prison for conspiring to accept bribes and lying to FBI agents. Between June 2007 and September 2007 Augustin and two other Atlanta police officers received over $10,000 to protect an illegal business. The nightclub in question posted the officers outside in the parking lot to intercept any incoming officers responding to calls at that location.
