She Saw A Helpless Student Being Bullied... Then She Did This!

I have learned a little psychology and I know of this thing called The Standby Effect which happens when you're in a large crowd, standing by and seeing something grave happen. Sometimes people get all heroic and help the ones in distress to win praise of the other onlookers or sometimes they just keep looking and shove off the responsibility.

Here in this case, where a student was being bullied, there were both types of onlookers.
