    Just wondering............

    If you see a man getting a good beating from a gang of youths-what would you do?
    Would you; help him, phone police, ignore it?
    I have been thinking about it as it is happening a lot recently, I feel that I would try to help him but the consequencies could be fatal

    why isnt the option of "join in" there?



    cos I thought it could be a sensible discussion, dont think 'joining in' was a choice in my eyes:oops:

    Steer clear personally, probably phone the police

    Too many of them carry knives now days so it's not worth the risk even if you think you can take them on

    give him a kick or two

    Phone the police and let them sort it out, simple as !



    yes but, by the time they had compiled their paperwork it could be too late and I would feel very guilty if it was

    ok but the guy cud b a rapist etc, might have tried to chat up one of the youths and they werent having any of it......gotta b careful nowadays on road.

    I tried to help someone before and got a thump so no i wouldnt do it again, but when i tried to help there were other people about men bigger then little old me and they did nothing and watched me get hurt NICE

    I agree but always think of it this way...................

    Imagine it was your son or daughter laying on the ground being beaten to a pulp by a gang.. and there were people walking on, not helping.. how would you feel.


    I would always ring the police then I would try to do something. Yep i may be injured or killed but one day it could me my child noone is helping...

    I would take the risk...

    I was in town the other day and some woman just collapsed (she was about 45-50). She hit the floor and started having what looked like a fit. I was about 25 metres away having a fag and as soon as I see her fall I started rushing over. Everyone else just walked past her completely ignoring her.

    That's people for you now days, she's OK now anyway I used my First Aid skills to get her in the recovery position and monitor her until an ambulance arrived (I was in the military for over 4 years and that's the first time i've had to do first aid oddly enough)

    I know how you feel, the same thing happened to me and I'm male, 6 foot and 16 stone I could have lost an eye. I'd feel terrible but you can't risk getting involved. It's a shame there's not more cops on the beat rather than on traffic duty clocking up speeding fines.

Personally I would call the police, I wouldn't get involved NO WAY, but then again I live in quite a rural town, it's not to small but not too big either. If ever I saw it, it would be on a Saturday night, outside a pub well re-knowned for bother, in which case, in our town there's always a copper van parked outside waiting for bother!! Everyone knows evreyone here, so you either stop and stare (if you know them!) or walk on by!!!!:-D:thumbsup:

    It is just a question though, not happened to me

    yep totally hear what your saying, totally understand but i would never ever be able to sleep at night again if i had not have helped. But them maybe thats my police side in me coming out. Had I not had the training etc maybe I would not think like this. Who knows.

    I just know I would never forgive myself for not helping. Thats me all over though, hot headed and would get involved without thinking. Instinct takes me over.
