That's the most interesting part in the episode actually. That the onlookers didn't do anything to stop the 2nd incident because if the Sibyl system doesn't say it's a crime, then it's alright. That's the danger there in that humanity is overly dependant on the Sibyl system to do the thinking for them.
Kind of reminded of the movie Demolition Man (ok, it was a horrible movie) which was about a future where aggression has more or less been bred out of society and they had no idea how to handle a violent criminal.
