"Mom, dial 911 NOW!!"

That's what I said to her in the parking lot of Wal-Mart just a few hours ago.

We were heading back to our car with our purchases when I saw a man pounding on the window of a car, yelling. He jerked the door open and wrestled the cell phone out of the hands of the woman sitting there.

Yelling at her (I assume it was husband and wife) he flipped through the cellphone before leaning in the car AND HITTING HER!

I told my mom to dial 911 while I stood and watched as this crazy man alternated between yelling at her, doing something with her cellphone and trying to beat the crap out of her.

The cops arrived but passed us by, so I went running after them and told the cops where to do. While I was gone the woman ran out of the car WITH HER 3 KIDS!!!!!

Yes, the asshole had been hitting her while her children were in the car with her.

The cops pulled up and immediately grabbed the guy, told my mother and I to stay where we were so that they could take our statements.

Thankfully the woman told the truth. The man had been hitting her and BITING her. He, of course, denied everything but they took his sleaze ass straight to jail. Just as they were handcuffing him (I resisted the urge to laugh as they did it) it started to POUR. Cats, dogs, hamsters and a few alpaca. So instead of making us standing outside in the rain a cop called my mom on her cellphone and thanked us for calling, told us what had happened and then asked us if we were willing to be witnesses in court.

OF COURSE WE'RE WILLING!!!

So we'll get letters telling us the day and time and stuff and you can believe I will be there, ready to send this SOB straight to jail.

It's so rare folks do their civic duty. Way to stand up for her and to help her out. :)

Wow, I would have puked. I can't stand seeing people being hurt like that. Good for you for taking a stand and taking action!

That must have been terrifying - thankfully you had presence of mind to get your mother to call the police and get that guy locked up.

Good for you! And hopefully this time when he tells her he loves her, he's sorry, it was really her fault for making him so crazy, he'll never do it again, she won't take him back. They always seem to weasel their way back.

Yeah! You rock girl!
I'm shocked the police got their that fast. If it were our neck of the woods he would have been long gone.
I hope they put his butt in jail until he turns to dust.

Good for you! So many people are apathetic these days towards what goes on around them.

Nice job! As a 911 dispatcher I commend you for following through and not casting a blind eye...

Wow! Good for you and your mom! I wish more people would stand up for what's right and do this. Too many people are afraid or claim that they just don't have the time to go to court and be a witness. Way to go!
