Wow, another video were people watch and go wow yet will never do nothing.

How about enforcing laws and making the laws way more severe. Time to thin the herd of violent and child offenders.

It's hard to enforce a law when members of the society you live in choose to remain silent when it comes to a very serious issue.

The whole point of the add is that, unlike with the noise of the drummer, nobody reacted to the abuse, nobody phoned the police. However, had the police been phoned, their attitude towards solving a case of domestic abuse would probably also have left much to be desired.

And my point was that there are tons of videos exactly like this one. No one will ever do anything because they are afraid of getting involved in a violent confrontation because in the end the punishment for the offender is weak at best.

People need the security of knowing that if they DO get involved that they will be protected and the offender will be severely punished.

problem is person playing drums is someone you can reason with and talk to...

an abusive person is someone who might turn their anger out on you if you speak to them.......

i think that may be part of the reason most people don't speak up........b/c you can't reason with a hothead who thinks it's normal to beat up women.....

Agree, but that is when it is time to call the authorities. I have done it twice and have not regretted it. Once a child was being beaten and the other time it was a young woman.

That's why you call the cops and you don't need to speak to them

Happens in the US all the time. I remember a youtube clip some of my friends were sending around, of a couple beating the heck out of each other in the middle of the street while a police car drove by and kept on going.

The fact of matter is violence is everywhere, and it shouldn't be exaggerated too. No Country is Perfect.

This is very frightening. Hopefully it will serve as a wake up call for some people. At the same time we all need to ask ourselves, would I have done something?

I have a few battle scars from getting involved. The worst scar is the one received from the girl getting abused and beat up behind a building at a local auction. I stepped in to save her but and she cussed me out and wacked me with a board. Ah well, ya can't let the little things keep you from doing the right thing.

It's pretty sad when victims of rape and abuse are told to yell FIRE!!

Amazing to watch...what is absolutely true! No one wants to intervene in someone else's domestic affairs!

Excellent ad. And sadly it could play here with only a slight tweak of the accents of the speakers!!!
