Re: I need to make the best decision here...
If a grown man screams in my face and puts his hands on me and pushes me, I'm calling the police. Period.
I understand they are your friends but it really doesn't matter.
You know it was violent and wrong and you need to make a report. Remember that you're teaching your daughter what happens when a man puts their hands on a woman.
It really sounds like he needs some therapy for his anger, etc.
Ultimately, you need to do the right thing and making a report is the right thing to do for you, your daughter and his kids.
I don't know if you have a male partner...but I can tell you that if a man did that to me...my partner would have taken care of it for me. What happened is not ok...and you already know that. That your friend didn't call you is disturbing but you need to call the police.
Be careful here!!!!
Thirty years ago, some shopkeeper swore at my wife. Called her the B word and the C word. My wife came home crying. I tore out of the driveway and went to his store. I demanded an apology. He started going off on me.
I floored the guy. I then hit him in the head with a can of dog food. The can broke open.
I ended up in jail. Luckily, there were witnesses there to testify on my behalf. The charge was reduced from felony assault to a 3d degree misdemeanor.
I spent 8 weekends in jail. Had to go through anger management classes.
I was lucky that the charges were reduced. He was lucky that I was not armed.
This is a dangerous world...very dangerous.
