Maybe if I was as bulked up like that guy or with a group of friends I might intervene but I'd probably just call the cops. I wouldn't want any of my family members tackling a group of thugs by themselves like that lady did in the end, that's just asking for trouble.

I don't know... I'm not in the best of physical shape and might just get hurt or killed myself. I have no idea what I'm getting myself into in that kind of situation, and would just call the police.

And the police even recommend not getting involved and just calling them, its their job.

The guys jumping him, and the victim are all actors. The camera crew was filming it to see if any pedestrians (unaware that it's acting) would step in and defend the guy, or at least call the police. You can't expect everyone to physically intervene, but they should at least call the police. I'd like to say that at the very least I would try to break it up and let the guys know I called the police, but it's a kind of thing you'd have to experience.

Considering that I'm 5'7", that I'm barely over 130 lbs., and that I have no training or experience in fighting one person, let alone three people, no, I imagine I would not attempt to directly intervene. If I did, then there would be two people getting beaten up and in need of assistance. :P

I imagine I would probably dial 911 though.

See, that's the problem I have with the video. I wouldn't get involved because I have no idea what their motives are and what kind of weaponry they might be packing. Sure, it could end up like it did in the video, and I'd be a hero... or it could end up with me bleeding to death on the curb with half my skull crushed in and the people who care about me wondering why I didn't just call the police.

And if later down the road, I end up having children, I won't be doing stupid things like that ever, because then my children could lose their father and half the support for our family. Unless of course I know I have the ability to over-power their group with my own group. But if I'm alone, no chance in hell. Sure, its selfish to not help... but I'm not exactly the kind of person with the ability to rescue others from people most likely stronger than me. Yeah, if I were built like the black dude, I'd easily try and do something... but I'm all flubby and weak and don't have commanding body language.

That's completely understandable but most people in the experiment did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! The guy said something on the lines of 67% of the people who saw the assault did nothing. That's awful.

I don't think I'd beat them up but I'd be rightly pissed. I hope you'd at least call the police and I assume you would. The point of that video is that 67 people didn't even call the police. That's what is significant.

Now I'm not saying I'd be the big hero and hand all those guys a whuppin without breaking a sweat, I'm just saying I couldnt just walk away. I would walk over to them telling them to get lost and do my best to look as intimidating as possible.

Turn to my friend and whisper, "He's kind of hot."

No, but really...

I wouldn't help him. I'd try to get other people to help him.

I am woman, and I am tiny. I would look hilarious trying to push them away from him and probably get one hit KO'd or something. Yeah, that helps the situation.

Well, they weren't assaulting him :P

But my question is, is it appropriate to call the police in a non-emergency situation?

People have called for stuff like thinking they were locked inside the car. (Seriously)

You can call 911 for this. He was being harassed and bleeding, and needed to go to the hospital anyways.

I knew I shouldn't have said woman. xD

I wasn't saying a woman couldn't break it up, just that I couldn't. Far too small and would've been intimidated by them. I could yell at 'em, though! Haha.

Holy ****, big mix up! :lol: I thought I watched this video before, but apparently it was a different one.

So yeah, I'd probably call the police, or look down in shame - I wouldn't want to get involved, seeing as I'd be a foreigner anyway.

I'd call the police then physically intervene. You have to remember these punks are spineless cowards.

I'd feel ashamed if I idly stood by. And I would regret it for the rest of my life if the person died, because I didn't act.

For all the people who are saying they would help.... nah, be fair, you probably wouldn't if it happened. I have been in such a situation, I was too scared to help, I didn't know if the attackers had guns, knives or other weapons, so it might be life threatening to jump in. I waited from a safe distance and I tried to memorize the faces and clothes of the attackers as well as I could. I called the police, there was a car on patrol near by, so it only took a couple of minutes before they arrived. Luckily the man that was being attacked didn't have any severe injuries, but the attackers already fled. Because of the information the victim and I could provide, the police caught them minutes after it happened. I read on a local tv station the day after that they were arrested. The whole situation was not fun and I was scared. The only time I can recall I came into action was when 3 guys were beating up some little shetland horses behind my house, I went into a blind rage, grabbed a big stick and ran into them. But they drove off before I reached them. I don't know what could have happened, I could have been seriously beaten up by them perhaps. So I hope such a situation will not occur ever again, because animals are my weak spot. I know I can't control myself if I see something happening and that might be dangerous for me.

I am Mexican, if i didn't have my TEC-9 i'd bust out the spike knuckles :D I remember seeing a Euro video on youtube where a guy is walking with his girlfriend or the like and one guy hits her, in a matter of like 2 seconds he knocks out both guys :lol: It was pretty epic, i'm 6' 200, been going to the gym for about a year now so whatever, i don't really care if i get hurt or die.
