Default Ohio couple saves beaten woman

Another interesting video from Frontsight.

Pay attention to the end of the video. Many of the couple's friends didn't agree with what they did and thought they should have just left well alone.

What is wrong with people? Have we really become such a callous society that people would rather just leave a woman to be beat rather than intervene?

Yes. Yes we have. In this day and age it is much easier to pretend we don't see anything than to actually risk getting involved.

We had this proven recently here in the Seattle area where some girls were beating the hell out of another girl in a transit tunnel and people video taped it, but no one stepped in to help. (note: turned out the girl getting her ass kicked deserved it as she was a multiple offender and had TWO assault and robbery charges pending, but no one knew that at the time).

It has been said many times, but in a rape situation women are encouraged to yell FIRE because it will illicit a faster and more positive response.

As tango has indicated, we have a land filled with effing douches masquerading as men these days.

Saw a shirt once- said "If you see me being beaten, put down the fricking camera and HELP ME!"

"People wondered why they got involved in the first place?" What kind of people would, given the fact that the guy was beating the "crap" out of this gal, think that you shouldn't get involved?

Great story, they probably saved her life!!
People get the government they deserve.

C3, I remember that case well and I STILL don't understand how people could have heard that situation and not done anything.

It is nice to see that the police where grateful and all that jazz. I think people should in the most general way stand up for others.

This really pisses me off. Those that questioned the couple for intervining should get an a$$ woopin. The one caveat, they need there mouths sealed with duct tape because you know they would be the first and quickest to start screamin for help. I would stand there and watch for a while, eat a tub of popcorn, and then step in and end the beat down. I would then reply that I was only trying to be a good witness.

In all actuallity, if I knew someone that was against intervention was getting their a$$ kicked, I would imediately intervene. In good conscience, I might think they deserve an attitude adjustment, I dont think I could allow myself to allow them to get beat.

People that are impulsive, and usually end up in jail, say that it is easy to do bad things and just act. If I every come to a situation where I "want" do bad, no matter how little, it takes every fiber in me to force myself to do bad.

At the end of the day, I the situation above ever did arise, I would go home feeling good. And the isolationist person probably wouldnt even be thankful and say nothing. What ever happened to pride, morals, character, honor, courage, commitment, or even the resemblance of a spine???

I don't understand how someone could not get involved. If I saw that and was unarmed I would still have gotten involved. He may very well be able to beat my butt but he's going to have to prove it before I let him beat a woman in my presence.

Have you ever seen first hand what a man can do to a woman when he beats her?? Do you realize how strong you hit when you hit something? Especially when you are angry. Guess not if you have to ask a question like that.

Sorry. But deadly force or not she could have been killed from the beating. Swelling of the brain, internal damage, etc.

How old were the couple that stopped the man, were they smaller then him? They did what they had to do stop him. I would do no less in there place.
