The whole point is the difference between a man and a woman. Sure, some chics are pretty butch and can kick some major a$$. The typical female, however when put in a physical confrontation with a male the same size and shape will not be as strong as he is. Also, a male is more structured for battle or fighting than a woman....our bodies are built better for it. Not saying that women don't beat on their men or their kids or their dogs....just saying that if a man is beating on a woman, shame on him....even if she is a big biznitchadizat and never shuts the ef up and pushes his buttons over and over and over and then cheats on him with his best friend. An a$$ whoopin isn't the answer. Just leave her....
I've had a number of girlfriends over the years. Some of them were very stupid. My tolerance for bullshit is super low. If I'm with a girl and she starts acting stupid to the point that she "needs" to be smacked, you know how I handle that? I give her a $20 dollar bill and tell her to take a cab home and not to call me anymore. That simplifies thing quite a bit. Smacking a girl not only complicates things, it is wrong and makes you a punk and a loser. You never hit a girl you're in a relationship with. If you feel the "need" to hit her it is time for that relationship to end . . . after which it is STILL wrong to hit her . . . unless you catch her crawling in your window with a butcher knife or something. Hitting girls isn't nice.
I'm not winning this battle, there is too many of you so I'm just leaving this where it is.
yes Daddy O....it is...I have seen guys shot 9 times and still walk to the ambulance. I have seen someone slashed 4 inches deep across the back and fall down right there and not get up. Depends on the person attacked and the will to survive. A knife never needs to be reloaded, is always ready and has never misfires or jams.
FBI statistics recommend a 30 foot radius around you as personal space for weapons drawing...If you have a suspect that encroaches inside that you are to have your gun drawn and ready down position at least by 30 feet. A healthy male, age 19-28, not on drugs like PCB or Meth can close that distance (30 ft) in 0.75 of a second. If they have a knife hidden in their hand, you now are on a losing fight for your life. Even if you draw after the fact you still may be badly injured or die from traumatic shock and blood loss.
Itís every manís business to see justice done.
p.s. I never said that I would not make a phone call out of sight. I simply said that I wouldn't get involved. I guess some may argue calling the police would be getting involved which can be a whole other debate. You mentioned that it wouldn't be right to just walk on by implying for me anyways that you would take some sort of action that would be a little more direct than calling the police from a safe and out of sight distance. It all depends man, it's one thing to talk scenarios and what ifs and a whole other to be there to make the call. Here is the best advice that I can give you. "We'll See."

Social psychology says the majority of the time, people will do what others do. It's not uncommon for such things to happen and people just ignore it, simply because other people are ignoring it. Some don't want to get involved, or figure there's no point. If the kid was dead, would there be a point in trying to help it? Some people say yes, others say that they aren't sure. None will SAY they won't, but it's likely to be true.
For those who would physically intervene in a fight between strangers, I say more power to you. But like I mentioned earlier, if you have a family, get LOTS of life insurance, seriously. What happens to your family if you die tomorrow trying to save some poor girl? Are you the financial provider? Who's going to pay your mortgage? Do you know how much a funeral costs?
Of course heros never think they're going to die, but they often do. Real life ain't like the movies. I don't know how many times I've heard of guys trying to break up a fight only to get stabbed or shot to death.
But I'll raise a glass to the fallen heros, and I'll feel sorry for their families when they wind up homeless because the breadwinner is dead, and they're living in a homeless shelter, or a car, or on the street.
I admire the nobility and selflesness of heros. But from my experience, when you have a family, you have responsibilities. And with those kind of responsibilities comes hard choices, like putting your family above all else, even ones own need or desire to be a hero. If fulfilling my responsibilities to my family means that I have to live with the guilt of not intervening in a fight, well, that's just something I'll have to live with.
