if someone assaulted you, in front of your daughter, would you call the police?

please answer truthfully and thoughtfully.
SW-User
Absolutely. If it occurred in front of your child, that's even more reason to do so. You don't want your daughter thinking that it's acceptable for you to be assaulted, because she'll learn from that. If you fear further retribution, you should communicate that clearly when you report it, because there are often resources for that scenario.

They don’t stop with the spouse or S/O, the children get it too. It happened to me.@SW-User

This is strange question, why would one not call police?
Miram · 31-35, F
Trying to get at Babylon with this public posts after your lousy attempts under two of her stories.

I will have you know that she is very appreciated long term member in this website. Your bitterness and resentment are of no use.

I was assaulted and didn't call the police until the next day, because my children forced me to. I couldn't identify the three men, so I didn't see the point.
SW-User
@rottenrobi I am so sorry this happened! How awful!
rottenrobi · 51-55, F
Thank you ❤️ @SW-User. It was years ago and I rarely think about it.
Gangstress · 36-40, F
Tbf. You're an absolute cunt

How dare you judge a situation or even know what happened?

Tbf. Trauma. Fight or flight. Ive had a time of flight. For various reasons. But ya know... only u know the right thing to do
Gangstress · 36-40, F
@SW-User dont bother mate, it wants some sort of justification its right or some shit. Check out its gifts. Its even gifting itself
Gangstress · 36-40, F
@vacationgirl block me. I'll merk you till i can tbf. I don't care what they say
SW-User
@Gangstress I believe it🙄

If anyone assaults you. You should call the cops no matter who you're with.
SW-User
Taking a step back, if you have injuries from this attack, get medical attention. Tell them what happened, because they will be able to help you start the process. Plus, there will be better documentation of the extent of the attack, which will then help them prosecute your attackers.
SW-User
@Waymore If she had killed her attackers, I think this would be an entirely different conversation.
SW-User
@Waymore I interpreted this as the person asking what to do about an actual attack. If we're talking hypothetically, then yes, my attacker(s) had better bring their lunch, because I would fight back.

If you don't back off you are going to find yourself banned from the site.

It is not your place. You are NOT A PROFESSIONAL AND this will be reported.
JaggedLittlePill · 41-45, F
@rottenrobi No worries. It is hard to figure out if you have not seen other posts. I would have not thought twice about it...I just happened to see something that led me here
SW-User
@JaggedLittlePill Do you know who it is?
JaggedLittlePill · 41-45, F
@SW-User No. I don't. The question is benign enough I don't see it being taken down..but honestly it is just a jab at someone else and it is wrong. How someone chooses to deal with their own assault is ther choice and not up for debate or scrutiny.
CountScrofula · 41-45, M
Why are you doing this?
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@bijouxbroussard the subject of molestation of children is an entirely different topic.
@vacationgirl Nor did I introduce it. The poster who is 26-30 said she didn’t remember it happening “20 years ago”. She would’ve been 6-10 years old then and might’ve been unaware. But it [b]was[/b] happening back then and earlier.
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@bijouxbroussard I will repeat the question stated in this post. if someone assaulted YOU in front of YOUR CHILD. would you call the police. it is a yes or no question. I gather your answer is no?
smileylovesgaming · 31-35, F
Yea I would call the police. He would have a gun shot in his leg
SW-User
Suffering from trauma is evidently hard for some people to understand.
Candice · 46-50, F
Call the ambulance to take them to hospital after my husband finished with them
SW-User
I don’t understand why you wouldn’t. Am I missing something ??
WizzBitt · 41-45, M
Truthfully ? I would use that situation to educate my children on how to defend themselves and the few situations where violence is justified. I would lead by example, first by trying my best to calm the situation, and if it fails, how to annihilate the opposite person by any means necessary.
Peaches · F
No. I would just say "way to go Debbie downer" like you did on my post! 👎🏼😠 If I want to wish my loved ones that I miss who are on the other side now I have that right! Keep your rude comments to yourself DEBBIE!
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@Peaches way to ruin christmas
Peaches · F
@vacationgirl No it isn't. If I ruined YOURS that's okay though.

Are you talking physical abuse or assault by stranger but either way in front of my daughter or not they would probably die. I grew up with that. I know enough to finish what they start or get them damn close. :(
hahaheheuhhaha · 31-35, M
I would try to engage first, but if matter out of my hands. Yes afterwards to take me to a hospital and arrest the culprits. Lol
Yes absolutely first it's wrong to assault another person and second it's even worse to be done in front of your own child
tallpowerhouseblonde · 31-35, F
Yes I would call the police,and ask for paramedics to give emergency medical aid to my attacker after I had beaten them to a pulp.
Poppies · 61-69, F
Why not? Why would there be any question about it? Unless you had a serious fear of retaliation for snitching.
Test12345 · 26-30, M
Assaulted how?
Test12345 · 26-30, M
@vacationgirl ..... lol what a strange question. Uhm first off how would you call a police while being physically attacked?
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@Test12345 obviously you couldn't. but after the assault you could, right?
Test12345 · 26-30, M
SW-User
Depends on how much I was hurt. I'd probably just find my way to the doctor
SW-User
I’d cry until someone else did
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@SW-User you think this is a joke?
SW-User
@vacationgirl Not funny enough to be a joke, too dumb to be taken seriously.
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@SW-User how so?
Thursday · 18-21, F
I'd probably take things into my own hands at that point, 911 would just be back up.
dunpender · 80-89, M
There is the macho thing of course mschismo is responsible for many problems
Overwatch6 · 41-45, M
I'd call the cops. Only to take a report and explain myself for beating them to death
iMystery · M
No I assault right back... makes for good cardio exercise...
Brutalbastard · 41-45, M
No i can fight my own battles.
vacationgirl · 36-40, F
@Brutalbastard and if you were a 100 pound woman?
Brutalbastard · 41-45, M
@vacationgirl that might be different. Cant honestly say i could relate to that scenario having never been a 100 lb woman. But calling the cops is certainly a valid response to the situation regardless.
Would that person who assaulted me be her father?
I can't think of a reason why I wouldn't.
dunpender · 80-89, M
Of course it is what the police are for is it not
SweetMae · 61-69, F
Yes, I would. Who knows what they will do next.
Jake966 · 51-55, M
I would kick their ass . Truthfully
TheRascallyOne · 31-35, M
No I'll shoot them
Test12345 · 26-30, M
@TheRascallyOne with bunny poop?
SW-User
I would not hesitate.
PTCdresser57 · 61-69, M
Oh hell yes I would call!
