If it was physical and obvious that it's not the 'playful' physical abuse, I'd say something, which would include threatening the authorities.

I've called 911 on a man who was beating his wife in public.
I don't regret it at all


It's a different kind of scum to physically abuse your significant other in public.

That said, if I was Ranwolf I'd probably not bother with the cops. I'd do what had to be done.

but since I'm not him, I'd probably tell him to stop, and if he didn't, I'd alert an adult ^^

If physical, I'd probably call the cops. If verbal, I'm not sure who I would call.

Beat everyone involved.

On a serious note, probably ask if everything is 'alright'... then beat ev.. I mean, it really depends on how the situation unfolds from there. ><

I don't really care of it's a man or a woman doing the abusing - it pisses me off to see. I don't like being a victim and it's a sure bet the other party doesn't either. Even if it's none of my business, if I see abuse, or even hear something that crosses the line with me, I'll be a nosy jerk and step in, if anything to simply calm the situation.

Every woman I ever got along well with ended up with a guy who treated her like crap - and it drives me absolutely crazy because now, I see it everywhere I look. Even little abuses - they add up and make it hard on a person.

If someone is being physically abused? If I can't break up the fight, I will probably pick a side in it until everyone is restrained or gone. That is - after I call the police... as much as I dislike dealing with them, physical abuse should consistently be reported to law enforcement because there's no excuse for it in civilized society.

Depends on how bad it is. If it's just a lot of yelling, I'd go my merry way. Or tell them to stop if it's interfering with my work. If it's a physical fight, I'll try not to get personally involved if it's avoidable. It's best to call authorities in that case, especially if there's deadly force.

It's great to help people out sometimes, but you need to also think about your own well-being.

Always found it irritating that people do that in public. Grown adults fighting in public. Go somewhere else.

Really Depends on the context, verbally I'd just walk away since I don't think it's my place to intervene when there is just words being thrown. Physical abuse is different in that case I believe it would be best not to stop it myself but persuade others around me to help the person who is being abused for the following reasons :

1.) I'm small and not skilled enough to get out of the situation without getting myself into trouble
2.) I think situations where people are fighting are best settled by the community regardless of how close knitted or disconnected the community is.

Although in another sense sometimes people need to fight and should be left alone to get it out of their system, or maybe they have a good reason to fight, I don't know, well unless I was involved to the point where I had an idea where both of them were coming from.

Well here's the thing, and I know every man and woman can relate. If a woman was being abusive to a man, like slapping or hitting him in public, I would have a good chuckle. Now unless this woman brought the man to the ground and continues to beat him, then of course I would step in, because that's just too much.

If a man was being abusive to a woman, yeah I don't take kindly to that, unless the woman is a complete cunt. If it was just one slap to the face that actually did some damage I would step in, because things like that set me off, and when I get going; good bye self control! I hate getting to that point, because it can get ugly

I mean there are people you need to actually be careful of, but it doesn't stop me from stepping in. Yea it might be some 300 lbs monster, and wouldn't have any idea of the outcome, but I stand by my beliefs, don't ever put your hands on a woman with a violent intent, or you might just set off the wrong people, like myself.

Same goes for women. If you want to be abusive to a man and do some damage, Expect to be hit back, and Don't think that you have more right to be abusive to men in that manner.

Most women, and this has nothing against women, but most have no chance of defending themselves against a man without proper means. So I am more inclined to defend a woman from a man than a Man from a woman.

If it's physical abuse, I would most definitely interfere (If it's too violent, I'd ask someone to call for help and then try to interfere with minimal injuries lol). If it were verbal abuse, I guess it depends on the situation. Regardless of gender or sexuality, violence is violence. It must not be tolerated.

If its a recurring and ongoing thing, and its annoying, I would probably say something. If it was someone larger and of a physical nature, I'd probably just call the police.

Why are you threatening the authorities?
