If this episode is like the last two, I'm going to be irritated. The pacing has gotten too slow.

Episode was okay, but that murder in the middle of a crowded street was hard to swallow. I get it, people are desentisized, conditioned not to expect this kind of behavior. Yes, even in the real world, there are crimes happening in public and no one helps, but to say that all of them remained completely calm, barely even understood what happened - despite this happening everything but fast - and not one person among that crowd actually reporting an incident? That just goes against human nature.

I liked that part. It's not desensitized since they aren't experiencing that every day to a point where it doesn't mean anything to them. It's just so foreign that nobody knows how to respond. It happens all the time. One time back in high school this girl just passed out in the class and smacked her head against the desk. Every body was just shocked and didn't know how to respond. Someone told the teacher after a few seconds after the shock of it was gone. But now imagine that on a greater scale.

Right, my misspelled usage of "desensitized" wasn't the right word here. My apologies.

A situation like the one you described is something I was trying to allude to in my post, though. Yeah, something that's so far out of the ordinary happening causing some lapse in response time is realistic. But as you said, someone told the teacher after a few seconds, after the initial shock. In this case - even if it was on a greater scale, as you put it - we are led to believe that no one in this huge crowd showed any actual emotional reaction despite observing this scene for a long time, and after it as over, no one told the authorities. That's like the girl in your class passing out and the lesson continuing for another half hour, and then everybody leaves and no one cares.

Because if it really was a crime, the drones or law enforcement would be there immediately. In fact, if a criminal so much as step foot on the street, an alert would be set off. Because neither of these happened, the public really had no idea what was going on. "Was it a hologram demonstration? A movie perhaps? There's no way someone is actually getting killed in front of me. Those things only happen in fiction."

On another note, in Psycho Pass there was a reaction in the crowd. The area stress level went up, hence what alerted the police in the first place. They weren't emotionless, they were just completely shocked and didn't react.

If anything, the real life example is worse because people weren't exactly shocked as much as simply not caring and just grabbing up videos of it or thinking "someone else will fix this".


As for original topic, great episode. 10/10, interested to see where they go with this.
