Talked with my friend this evening about last nights event and found out the reason his Dad couldn't defend himself is because the attack happened while he was driving and trying to keep the truck in his lane.

Also while this was going on is when my friends Dad called him telling his son he wished he was here to help him with is physco daughter and what all she had been doing to him. My friend told his Dad that he was calling the police or her probation officer,a little later his Dad called him back and told him not to call anyone about the problem and if he did he wouldn't talk to his Son again? WTH??

So this is why he was struggling with what to do?,family relations...Not because he needs to grow a pair,I've known this man 45 years,he has always been a stand up person and a friend that always had your back.
Guess I got his back on this one!

Update
The Elderly Hot Line has already started their investigation,contacting my friends Fathers girlfriend today,meeting with my friends Mom tomorrow,they have also called my friend to schedule an interview, and have contacted me for an interview since I made the call.

I guess once his Dad finds out I called he won't have anything to do with me????
I guess that's the way it will have to be???.

Thanks again for your opinions and input
That's what I like about this site,the people here with good honest values and straight shootin' advice.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

You did the right thing. Your responsibility for this ends now.

Your friends Dad may not have anything to do with you now. He may be mad at you for coming between family members. He could also be embarrassed about it and be ashamed to face you. Either way, he will be safe from the girl's "loving" attention, and that is the most important thing right now. Give it some time to calm down and see what happens.

Do what I did when dumped in that horrible position: Tell your friend to call an intervention specialist, confront her within 72 hours, or YOU call the police and report her for felony behavior. I agree with the poster that said it wasn't fair to dump this in your lap. Your friend KNOWS what is right, he just can't pick up the phone. This option gives the family an out to get her help before she goes to jail, and gets you off the hook as the bad guy.

You did the right thing. Now the issue is out in the open and you've given your friend cover. You did him a big favor. Now let's hope the family will do the right thing.

MOshooter - you did the right thing. You can go forward knowing that you did your best to protect all of their lives. There may be some relationship fallout from your decision, so be it. You can stand before God knowing you helped your fellow man.

I would be proud to have a friend like you!

Their parents need to call the police and press charges for assault. I would also recommend that they evict her from the residence if she lives with them.

You should not be confused. His dad can either live with it, threaten to hold his breath until he dies, foam at the mouth, lie down and kick the floor, call the fire department or.......thank you for it. That part is not in your control and sometimes people do the darndest things. Sometimes, after a while, they come to their senses and apologize. Sometimes, they don't.

Trying to figure out irrational behaviour will drive you mad.

We should have no tolerance for those who hit women, hurt kids or abuse old folks. None. Any of that should result in a trip out behind the wood shed - post haste.

You done good.

Rocky7 I agree there's no tolerance in my book for irrational abusive behavior towards women,kids,and our older generations.

Thanks,
Nothing i'm proud of doing,just something that had to be done.
Thanks again
