What would you of done?

This weekend I took my son to the park and we were have a great time. Then suddenly i could hear a man yelling at what i believe is his wife. I looked around and noticed the yelling was comeing from the house right next door to the park. I told my son to go play farther away from the house. I heard this man hit the woman about three time and continue to yell at her. Once I heard him hit her I called the police. So Just wondering if you were me would you had the same thing?

  • I probably wouldn't have, only cuz some people are crazy. Some women actually get turned on by that behavior and who knows if they were in the middle of foreplay? I wouldn't know. So I wouldn't have bothered calling.

  • You did the right thing. While I see milmiracle's point, I disagree with not calling. Even if they were doing a mutual roleplay, foreplay whatever kind of thing, to be that loud that close to a park where kids are playing isn't appropriate. At least, if that's what it was, the cops could have told them to keep it down.

  • I would have called, of course, in situations like that, she probably just downplayed it to the cops so they would leave, probably didnt press charges either, just how it goes.
