1 person is getting beaten up by multiple people and I agree, no matter the circumstances I'm obligated to intervene.
Thankfully, if I get the chance to hit someone while they aren't paying attention I can usually remove their will to fight very quickly.
Can only think of one instance where intervention was necessary. Stupid school yard fight that I wasn't involved in, and I didn't even need to hit the guy, a simple "get the **** off mother ****er" was sufficient.
But humans are disgusting! SO
many people don't do anything about stuff like that! Like SO many. One night, rather late last winter I was awakened by my dog growling on the floor of my room, he was off about this couple who was loudly arguing. (The pitbull doesn't like it when people fight you see, he is against violence of any kind between others)
Then I hear a dull *Thump* and I can here someone fall to the ground, then the girl starts screaming and crying and screaming, and the guy is yelling at her. I couldn't see them from my window, but I got outside to help her out, dog in one hand, bokken in the other but they where gone.
You think someone else might have done the same? Any of the hundred other people within ear shot on the block corner? A single able bodied person? Not a freakin' one.
No one could be bothered to help out a woman who had been struck by a guy in the middle of the night. What if she needed help, really bad? What if he was abducting her? Everyone sits comfortably in their homes while anything could have been going on to her, defenceless. I was sick to my stomach that night, couldn't get back to sleep for a long time..
