Videos of crimes being committed are all over the web. The latest shows a San Diego man being thwarted by bystanders after attempting to carjack a mom and her daughter at gunpoint. The footage shows the man being pulled out of the minivan and beated by a crowd after his carjack attempt in broad daylight.

While beating up a criminal may be a bit extreme, it does take a certain kind of person to jump in and help a victim in need. So many of these crime videos show people standing back and recording someone getting hurt instead of helping. Would you intervene if you saw a crime being committed or would your self-preservation instinct kick in and keep you at bay? Would your compassion force you to act? Let us know below.
