Kitty Genovese Syndrome on Social Media Deja Vu And Timothy Wall Publix Killings?

 At a Publix Store in Royal Palm Beach another senseless killing of innocents

That has police and the most of us wondering how to more of these killings prevent
Timothy Wall went into the store not with groceries on his mind
But to kill especially children as he walked up to shoot a one year old from behind
The boy’s grandmother tried to intervene and in the struggle was knocked to the ground
Wall’s gun had jammed but sadly he was able to clear the jammed round
Then he quickly shot her dead
To quick fatally shoot himself in the head
Police seemed so far not to have found any connection with the victims
But Wall’s posting of Facebook shows these killings were not a spur of the moment whim
He was believed to be acting strange recently with a wanting to kill people and children  post
If seen by others evidently did not ring alarm bells not wanting to get involved or with their own issues too engrossed
Almost instantaneously 911 calls came in from the stores
With no warning so no time for fellow shoppers to the threat ignore
But on social media perhaps the Kitty Genovese Syndrome from 1964 to not wanting to be involved
Another example of the sanctity of human life and to help out fellow human beings being dissolved
