PRECEDENT: Kitty Genovese

Episode Summary

Kitty Genovese has become infamous as the woman who was ignored by her neighbors as she was being murdered on March 13th, 1964. Much of her story has been embellished or misreported, though that’s not to say the truth isn’t horrific and her legacy lasting. Kitty’s case set the precedent for the 911 system we have in place and rely on to this day.
