Do the right thing. It's Self Evident.

One in three people in Hackney & Islington in North London have recent first or second hand experience of street violence either as a victim or witness. Drawing on official statistics, the report estimates that there were 14,400 cases of street violence in the two boroughs last year.

Two in three of those surveyed said they were not confident anyone would help if they were being mugged in a busy street.  However they themselves were confident they would help if the tables were turned. Against this background, it was no surprise that people express strong support for a more engaged response from the public and the police when people witness street violence.
