This is not a problem that has "spread" anywhere. It's human nature. While people will react one way to a situation if they are alone, they will often not react if they see a large group of people who also see the situation. Its a sort of deflection that eases the conscience and allows people to do nothing and tell themselves someone else already probably called 911. Problem is all of those people are thinking the same thing and 911 never gets called.
