This shocking social experiment will terrify you
This powerful social experiment is shocking to say the least. A little girl named Talie walked around a city, pretending that she had lost her mom. She approached strangers asking for help, and their reactions were recorded.
While many people willingly offered their cellphones or money to the girl, others were not nearly as helpful. Sadly, most people completely ignored little Talie when she asked for help, just walking away. When she asked one awful pedestrian "Can you help me find my mother?" he grumpily replied "I don't know who your mother is," then shoved the girl out of his way.
But this wasn't the worst reaction to Talie's pleas for help. One man instantly responded to the lost girl, claiming that he knew her mom, forcefully grabbing her hand saying, "Come, I'll take you." Thankfully, two other men were suspicious of the aggressive behavior, stepped in, and called the police. Disturbingly, it turned out that the man was a neighborhood pedophile with a restraining order.
This social experiment is a scary reminder to keep your children safe and asks you to consider - would you help, or would you walk away?
