What would you do?

Ever heard of this program? They have scenarios and wait to see what strangers do in a certain situation. A woman looking battered and beaten walks into a restaurant with her boyfriend, as they are there he starts to verbally abuse her loud enough for others to hear and intimidates her constantly while she looks terrified of the man. He grabs at her and threatens her, would you say something and step in to defend her? or would you mind your own business and ignore?

  • That's a tough one!  My first instinct would be to step in and defend her and probably call the police, unfortunately if that happened she would probably get a lot more abuse when they got home.

  • I don't think I would step in by myself. I would ask for help from other people. If nobody wants to help I would call 911.

  • I agree with beeky if you do something it could make it worse on her later. But i would feel horrible if i didn't do anything.

  • it all depends on if my son was with me... if he was i would just call the police... if he wasnt i would do something... like say something. if she went to the bathroom i would follow her and try to help her. when i was younger i would have done something crazy to him... i was a little impulsive.

  • If she's choosing to stay with him than there's nothing anyone can do.
