Oh a screaming contest is it? Well alrighty then.......<br />
This in fact happened to me many years ago. I remember being awakened by hearing an argument. I thought I could just ignore it. Go back to sleep. This wasn't going to happen. I got out of bed to listen at a window to what was the sounds of a woman being beat on. I got my cell phone. I called 9-1-1 to report this. I walked outside and spoke to them. I was upset further to learn that this was in an upstairs apartment and there visable to me were two young men. The woman who I could hear was pleading for the man to stop. I imagined she was on the floor as I watched in horror his motions with his arm and his fist swinging into a hit towards the woman on the floor. That the other man did nothing to stop this man further prompted me to head to their door. I was fearless! I yelled up for him to leave her alone! I kicked the metal outside door, which presumably lead to a stairway to this apartment. Bang, bang, bang! Three strong kicks to this metal door sent them to the window. I let them see me. I wanted them to know I was a witness. I had come to the aid of this defenseless woman. Now, minutes later there was a loud bang but this time from the young man who's fist was making non-loving gestures to this poor woman's face. He had the unmitigated gaul to approach me. He spoke. What he said was pure evil. He said, "did you see him?" I said, knowing full well he is the guy he is speaking about, what guy? Now, the police were coming up the street. More than one squad car. I spoke to them right away. I told them what I had witnessed and that both men had fled the apartment. That the other man had stepped into a maroon colored van parked over there. Where the other man went I did not know. I went back home. Shaken. Proud but scared now that I could have set myself up as a target for violence by these two thugs if they sought revenge on me. <br />
I was fortunate that never happened. I would later learn that this young woman had had a restraining order well a court-ordered one against her attacker. He, apparently, was her boyfriend. The cops said they were now going to get him and arrest him. <br />
In the ensuing weeks I was confronted by this boyfriend's mother. What a class act. I remember thinking how odd to defend such behavior or rather acts of violence against another woman. Didn't she with the eyes of a woman? That she expected me to mind my own business was a lack of decency and common sense I did not subscribe to at any time in my life. That I further found it revolting that she condoned violence in any form. Against a woman who deserved it because she acted against her boyfriend's wishes? Wow this woman brought back that old attitude a woman is property mentality. What a piece of work. I would do it again. I am older now so I am careful about being public but I would still like to think I had the nerve to help a man, woman, child or someone's beloved pet for that matter.
That was bravery.
Thank you. It is amazing what adrenaline does for us.
Call 911 for sure, grab a bat or knife and run over to help (I hope)
grab my cell, walk over and check out the situation.
it depends on the reason why they scream... -_- people here scream just for fun
I would just call the cops. Besides, what they do in their own home is there business, not mine. I might just ignore it.
Laugh in delight!!!
If I heard, almost any one of them, I would check it out and see if I could help; but there is one, that if she started, I'd call security and let them deal with it. She has been arrested several times for assault, including assault on a police officer and once on an EMT. She is wacko. I'm afraid of her.
I'd be jealous.
I would only react different if it was - "OH GOD YES!"
i'd tell them to stfu
