    Interesting reading, thanks for posting it. It left me a little speechless. I'd heard of it before but not about what's just read.

    A lot of "instance twisting" still goes on in the media, sadly.

    I remember reading about this and studying this case, based on the original article. It was a reference point of typical human behavior. Fascinating read.

    One part that caught my eye - when a journalist started to question the police chief about a case the chief didn't want to discuss, he changed the subject by bringing up Kitty Genovese and claiming there were 38 witnesses and no one helped. What was the case he didn't want to talk about?
