>> Paranoid big city upbringing says a person appearing possibly in need of help on the street is as likely to be a threat. :-/ <<

That has always been a concern; bandits used to lie down beside or on a road to make people stop. Thing is, if the members of your society don't stop to help each other at need -- if ignoring harm is the routine response rather than a fluke -- it means your culture is coming apart at the seams. A lack of compassion is very corrosive, and it's a serious problem in big cities.
