It reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EisZTB4ZQxY (I'm new to forums-how do I post videos?)

I think it depends on many factors,most of which have already been addressed above.Assuming it's night,there's nobody else who can help,nobody else is with me,my attempt won't be completely futile and I'm not practically guaranteed to be in the same bad situation or worse,I would.Otherwise,it depends on how many of these are true for the situation as well as all the other factors listed by BlackoutMK2.

For the second question,I'll be honest,I won't intervene too much.I'll tell the bully off and I'll carry the conversation for as long as needed,but I won't physically help if he continues and if he targets me,I'll just use self-defense.Of course,if this is recurring(and I'll bet it would be with bullies) I'd tell an authority or guardian about it.

I help and I stand up for anyone being bullied. I got punched once in the stomach by a guy while I was defending another guy from getting hurt. Im just that type of person that will jump into any situation to help another defenseless person even though im defenseless myself I know there is nothing to gain from it but I just do it anyway, If I didnt I would feel bad that I never did anything to at least help in some way


oh steph -_-

If it's a stranger or someone that I like and know, I'd save their life.

But after chatting to them for a few minutes and they don't say thank you,

I'll throw them back in with the wolves.

Depends on the situation really but most of the time I do.

Assault: If there isn't a weapon involved and there isn't more than one attacker I would interrupt with minimal force, not much more than just blocking them out from the victim. If a weapon is involved I would create a distraction from an ambush position to attempt to deter the attacker, if I were to close the distance they could easily commit to actual violence rather than the threat of it. If the victim's life is in immediate danger I might jump in if the distance I had to close was short. I will not engage more than one person as it would be difficult to keep an eye on them and prevent them from using a weapon either drawn or improvised. All of course comes after simply calling attention to it and calling out for help.

Verbal bullying: Verbal bullying poses no immediate danger and I would simply try to understand the situation before taking sides if at all. If I decide to stop it I will try to win with reason and if onlookers are present I would mock the offender(s) and call attention to their behavior. If none of that deters the bully then I would resort to intimidation.

Physical bullying: If they want physical, I can give them that...

As far as risk assessment goes I am not a police officer but I usually follow guidelines to avoid the "fatal errors." I also would exercise more caution in situations where I am outnumbered since I am usually unarmed. I carry around a pocket knife that I can use as a blunt or thrusting implement. (I don't consider it a weapon as it wasn't intended to be used as such, in use it would be an improvised weapon.)

I can't remember being in a situation were I could stand stand up for someone, so I can't really say what I would do.

Depends on if i know the person, if i dont know them... then honestly i couldnt care less. Well unless it was multiple guys on one girl, that would make me snap.

I have a busted knee till this day because i defended this girl in 8th grade from getting pushed down a small hill behind the school yard, so i end up getting pushed down in her place and and i split the surface of the back of my head open and fucked up my knee, she couldn't give two shits about it, so i guess heroic acts only get you laid in Animes

If there's a fight, 1 v 1, then I would not butt in; there's an obvious reason for them to fight. But if I saw someone getting bullied or gang'd up on I would help; that's my nature. Would you not want someone to help you if you were ever in that kind of bind?
