Isn't it a crime not to provide help/not to call 911 in the US too?

It can be a felony in Europe.

That would fall under duty to rescue laws. You only have to rescue someone if you caused the situation, which you can make a case that they did by stealing. Good Samaritan laws protect the person from liability for trying to help someone in need. They are often confused.

Oh ok, here in Europe if you fail to help according to your possibilites, meaning that at very least you can always call 911 you can get slaped with fines and up to 1 year (in germany)
