Terry Garahan, instructor in sociology
In the aftermath of the mass killing in Aurora, Colorado, many are asking if it could have been prevented. Garahan told the Associated Press that people need to stop assuming that someone else will take care of problems involving emotionally disturbed individuals who might harm themselves or others. "Institutionally, we have become like the people who saw Kitty Genovese stabbed to death," said Garahan, recalling the 1964 stabbing of a woman in New York witnessed by some 38 people who never alerted authorities. "We assume that someone else is going to take care of it, someone else is going to make the call. What we can do is to take a risk."
