    Why is nobody answering my question?

    Why didn't an adult respond immediately?

    There's a bunch of reasons.

    Mainly because the bigger the group involved in bystanding behaviour the less likely it is that anyone will respond, each bystander believing essentially that "somebody" should take responsibility but feeling no sense of personal responsibility to do so. Its typical of situations where responsibility is felt to be diffuse.

    Not buying that one? Well issues, sadly, of personal safety, liability and accountability, they result in either indecision or abdication of responsibility. The "I'm alright jack" reaction to anothers distress or need.

    No good? Generalised cynicism, "This is a stunt and I will not act in anyway which could make me seem like a sucker".

    I'm not buying it because none of those are being used as acceptable excuses for the teenagers.

    An adult? Did you not realize that you're an adult at eighteen, dear? Certainly the Juniors and Seniors were more in the neighborhood of twenty-one, twenty-two, even twenty-three...it's not like you're defending junior high students. Hell, 100 years ago a fifteen year old could run an entire household.

    I'm not buying your position at all, if any thing it's infantilizing young adults.

    How could this many people miss that this occurred at a university, not a high school?

    I'm more alarmed at how many people use twitter. It's really not that great.

    It really isn't. I mean it was cool during the Iranian election stuff but otherwise, yeah, it kind of sucks.
