A question of relationship abuse....

Today I watched as a couple argued in the street, abusive language and assult for more than 20 minutes, as one kept trying to walk away as the other kept following, swearing insulting remarks and hitting, then punching....

I watched, as with the police (via their street cam less that 20 feet away) I wondered how many cases of "reverse abuse" are ever looked upon as serious.

Of the couple I witnessed, "she" was verbally abusive as well as physical. "He" kept trying to walk away, he was defenseless from punches she gave.

I wondered, as all this played out under the noses of our police department, would cops have shown up in a New York minute had it of been "the other way around"?

    yes, they would have come, but let me tell you it is better now than it was 20 years ago, the cops used to come then and believe the man when the woman used to stand there crying and telling the cops the true story and the cops would let the wife abusing sob go with a warning or not believe the wife at all, the she's crazy officer thing worked! I don't like abuse from any angle and if she is like that, he should pack up his stuff and leave, just like they tell the woman to do, i believe in equal treatment. We don't have to live this way!
