you know what lady j back in the day ive tried to intervene the g/f on both occasions turned on us who were trying to help ,wth 馃槙
@english i know this is one of the problems with trying to help it can backfire
I had the same experience once too, his girlfriend started screaming at me..
But they stopped fighting.. sadly she walked away with the asshole as if everything was fine.

What the fuck!? Where are you that the police arrive in minutes, we have to wait 4 days and then all we get is a letter babbling on about a victim support group and a free personal alarm!
Kent police!

@LadyJ that helps,we are 3 streets away,admittedly one of them is 12 miles long.

@Moonpenny apparently not if they're my children.
@goldenorchid Sorry to hear that 馃
No. If he does it in public that means it has been happening for a while and she has chosen to stay.
@SW-User i thought that tonight..i thought how many times as he done this and got away with it 馃
@LadyJ You are probably going to see them together again as if what you witnessed never happened.
@SW-User i sad

Yes, in a heartbeat.

I have a martial Arts background. If I am not going to use it to benefit others then why bother.
Of course I would intervene and in fact I have, a number of times with both strangers and acquaintances..

"interfering" has gotten me into trouble a few times, but I was raised to believe that there's no excuse to hit a woman.

Most time's I'll restrain the dude and/or put him in a headlock...

If there are kids involved/nearby, and he's screaming swears as well... I'll use his head for a mop & butt for a broom...

Idk when my bestfriends bf came home high on meth and tried to hit me and they put her in a choke hold and dragged her down the stairs beating her I wish the guys that where just standing on the street watching would have helped
Oh wow that's awful.
I'd call the police but I wouldn't intervene because I'd get my arse kicked.
I hope she's OK
@FairyGirlGemma i hope she is too! The ambulance came for her..and she could still walk so im hoping its nothing serious
@LadyJ Let's hope it's the last time that bastard lays a hand on her.
@FairyGirlGemma he needs locking up for a long time

I have. It鈥檚 an intensely scary experience but there鈥檚 this part of me that won鈥檛 allow the vulnerable to be abused in my presence. Even at risk to myself. It isn鈥檛 always the smartest move but I think it鈥檚 important to step in to stop violence.
