Hey Now! Stop That!

If you saw two people fighting on a street corner, would you try to step in and break it up or stay out of it? Why would you make that choice?

If you saw two people fighting on a street corner, would you try to step in and break it up or stay out of it? Why would you make that choice?

My level of involvement would depend on a few factors, like whether the people fighting seemed evenly matched and equally invested in fighting, and whether or not any other onlookers seemed to be involved.
If the situation seemed like it actually involved one person attacking another, I'd be more likely to involve myself in some way. However, the size of the people involved, relative to each other and to me, would establish whether I got involved by calling for help, or trying to talk to them to distract them, or personally physically involving myself. I've broken up fights between schoolchildren before, and am trained to intervene safely in those kind of instances, but if it were two men or women who were larger than me, or might be armed? I'm not standing between them.

Nope!im gonna watch them... and bought some snacks... and suddenly people crowded... lols!
