What would you have done ?

yesterday i was taking a walk... I passed a yard and heard kids yelling and crying.... I looked over and seen a little boy on top of another little boy BEATING HIM UP...and 3 other little boys watching and "cheering him on" ... it was obvious it wasnt play becuase the little boy on the ground was crying and had a little bit of blood on his lip.... I yelled at the other boys, and helped the other one up and was talking to him when this loud mouth lady came out of the house ( that the boys went into) ..yelling at me that I have no right to tell her kids what to do or to come into her yard..and I was like" they were beating up this boy" She said no they were playing and I said " is that why is he crying and bleeding" ... the boy told me he lived down the street so I was going to walk him home.. the woman started screaming that she was going to call the policea dn I told her to do it ( but they didnt show up so i doubt she did) .

  • I would have done the sam ething! Except I would have called the police on that crazy lady and let her explain to the police why she thinks it's okay for her kid to beat up another!!

  • I would have done the same, only I would have contacted the police myself. That's insane to let your kids beat up someone in the front yard. Good grief, another one of those people who shouldn't be reproducing.

  • Good Job! Not many people would've stopped to help the kid. Most people think "Someone else will step in", but nobody ever does. you did a great job! I commend you for taking action!

  • You did well! Its insane that the woman didnt want you interfering and thought beating up a child is "playing".

  • I would have done the same thing. I would also have called the police. Let's see if they think this was friendly playing.
