Good choice or bad?

I firmly believe that in life, we all make choices. Some choices that we make are better than others, but with every choice that we make there are certain outcomes that may or may not fit whatever actions that your choice was. for example... I saw a man beating up on his girlfriend, and decided to try to help,

Unfortunately we are all human, so there is a split second where you think about what to do. and figure "something must be done right here and right now"!!! So I pull the guy off of her and allow her to escape, he takes a swing at me. I take a swing at him. Out of nowhere, the very girl that I have went out of my way to help, is now on my back, and digging her fingernails into my eyes, screaming leave my boyfriend alone!!!

Even though I personally have no beef with the guy other than the common knowledge that he is a scumbag for beating on a girl, I am now involved in something that would have otherwise never involved me, had I not tried to help that poor girl getting the snot beat out of her by that guy.

I have to ask... Would it have been a better choice to just walk past, and pretend I didnt hear her screaming and crying and pretend I didnt see what was happening?

Being the person that I am, I think if I was presented with that same situation again, I would probably do just as I did then, hoping that maybe this time, I would actually be helping someone who appreciated the kind of help I was offering. Leave me a comment telling me your thoughts. I would love to read what you all think.

I managed bars for years in Dallas, I've seen this happen time and time again. A couple starts fighting, he smacks her around, someone jumps in to save her, and she attacks her rescuer! No accounting for it, it just happens! No understanding human nature sometimes!

That is exactly why a lot of police officers hate being called out on domestic abuse calls...........I have a friend who was the County Sheriff here for years and he told me that two things could happen...........she will either jump the policeman as he is trying to arrest the man or she will beat them down to the jail to bail his ass out.

And still i will try to break it up if i can..........which has resulted in a couple fit lips but i heal.

When I lived on the street I learned very quickly not to get involved in anyones business unless you wanted to get stabbed or shot. Today I access the situation before I jump into anything.

As any policeman will tell ya, the most dangerous call is a domestic dispute.....
