It remained this way for about thirty five to thirty six year until in “1901 when William McKinley became the third President killed in office, for Congress to unofficially assign the task of protecting the new President, Theodore Roosevelt, to the Secret Service” (About.com: US Government Info).

Hence the Secret Service we know today was created and a list of duties where established that grew through the years. At first the Secret Services duties where only to protect the “President, First Family, and White House staff” (About.com: US Government Info).

Kitty Genovese – The ‘Bystander Affect’/Genovese Syndrome Case Study and Summary Case Study; Catherine Susan Genovese (July 7, 1935 – March 13, 1964), commonly known as Kitty Genovese, was a New York City woman who was stabbed to death near her home in the Kew Gardens section of Queens, New York on March 13, 1964. The circumstances of her murder and the lack of reaction of numerous neighbours were reported by a newspaper article published two weeks later; the common portrayal of neighbours being fully aware but completely nonresponsive has later been criticized as inaccurate. Nonetheless, it prompted investigation into the social psychological phenomenon that has become known as the bystander effect (or "Genovese syndrome") and especially diffusion of responsibility. Genovese had driven home from her job working as a bar manager early in the morning of March 13, 1964. Arriving home at about 3:15 a.m. she parked in the Long Island Rail Road parking lot about 100 feet (30 m) from her apartment's door, located in an alley way at the rear of the building.
