Abstract

Responds to Brock's comments (see record 2008-12151-012) on the current author's original article (see record 2007-13085-001) which talks about the original 1964 Kitty Genovese murder 38-witness account. Manning, Levine, and Collins wish to leave it to readers of this journal to judge whether it is wise to continue to use in textbooks inaccurate accounts presented as facts, and whether it is sensible to conclude that despite being read by many thousands of students and researchers, the story of the 38 witnesses has had "negligible scholarly impact."
