Would-be warriors in waiting: Getting help when you need it

At least under the American concept of ordered liberty, raising "good citizens" entails far more than the "3 R's" taught nowadays in schools (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle):

few officers have been trained to consider asking a bystander for help. They are not aware that many states authorize officers to request and even demand assistance from citizens who are then bound by law to assist. Some of these statutes allow for officers to arrest citizens who refuse or fail to come to their aid when so ordered.
