Public Rape Social Experiment

Public Rape Social Experiment: Would you help?

I’m sure many of you have seen this “viral” video depicting what they call a “public rape social experiment.”

They said that 85% of the passerby didn’t help and kept on walking:

From Speisa:

“As this absolutely shocking video shows, indifference and fear seem to have grabbed a firm hold on the average Swedes.

Despite a poor girl screaming loudly in terror from the backseat of a car – apparently being beaten and raped – people just walk past, minding their own business.

As much as 85% of the passersby showed no interest in helping the victim of an apparent ongoing rape, while only 15% interfered in some way. At one point the “rapist” was physically stopped, while most others asked what was going on, then let him start the car to drive off – with the “rape victim” still in the car.

The Swedes need to grow a backbone – and it’s urgent.

“The biggest sin of the humankind is indifference. So act as you want others to act when you find yourself in trouble.”


One aspect they left out of this experiment worth mentioning is – that people usually act completely different when alone, compared to when in groups.

Groups always help more often than not – because it’s a “shared” responsibility. Which is why in big cities, where there are often countless people around at all times – you’re very likely to get help.

A quiet side street with hardly anyone around? Not so much. Which it’s advantageous to travel in groups, or choose your routes and times carefully.
