Is it ok that we didn't call the cops?
I was with family and walking down the street when we heard a couple arguing very loudly. A woman was cursing loudly at a man, screaming the f word over and over and hitting him. He was not hitting her back and nobody seemed to be in serious immediate danger. My mom was worried that calling the police might escalate things or they might misinterpret the situation (we have read news stories of people being shot by cops). I want to know if you guys think it is normal we didn't call the police.
