Hell no! I'd definitely call the police or stop them myself. As neighbor, I have the responsibility to look after their welfare while maintaining the level of respect between us. They have their own problems to deal with, but when it comes to violence, It becomes a social problem.

I personally could not just watch this. My first move would be to call the police, my second would be to try to go see if everything is okay, make sure he didn't have a weapon and try to calm the situation. I don't know if I would go over there alone, maybe with a few other neighbors or my husband if he was home. But I wouldn't just act like I didn't hear and let it happen. It is our business when it involves children. You should watch that show What Would You Do..you can watch it for free on hulu.com. Anyhow it does a few senarios similar to this. And in situations like this a lot of people are afraid to step up and try to help. I think if a child was involved I would be over this fear in a second.

I would never stand still while those wors were being spoken. This would make me call the police on them. I would then go outdoors with my phone so the cops could hear the noise as well. I think people who stand by and watch are guilty of the crime as well.

Hello Rondo, that is so sad. beating or killing wife and kid? he's a real psycho and should be put to jail. that's her wife that love him and the child as the bear fruit of their love, this is insane. he doesn't deserve to live nor to be with this girl, he's insane and crazy. am pretty sure he's not mature husband.

Herro RONDOLAWE I agree with other two responses. I would call the police. Where I live, a family violence brings at least 2units and sometimes more. I also have a different experience level. I was a counselor that focused on counseling the people who committed the violence. If authorities don't know the violence is happening, the judicial system cannot mandate counseling. So, Yes, I would call the police. I would NOT interfere. That is up to the authorities. Prosperous mylotting

ohh my god :( i would call the police without the man sees it or he might kill me too. i couldnt just watch and do nothing. he can really kill his wife and his son bcs someone that talk like this is crazy for sure. if you saw this please call the police and make an anonimous report.im sure they will investigate what is happening and will protect the woman and the child. try to talk with your other neighboors too and maybe you all can present charge so that way they protect the child and the woman instantly bcs if is only you reporting maybe they do something but if they dont see anything they cant do nothing. but if you and some neighboors talk then is different.

i've never been a witness to these acts but if i do, i'd call the cops immediately. i've stop a few fights before so i think i would probably get myself involved if ever this happens... after calling the police. :)

that definitely is a very delicate situation and personally not liking to get involved somewhere where it's none of my business, the violence still gets me and if it'd be necessary I'd go call the police. bUT i DON'T THINK EITHER i'D GO OVER THERE AND BREAK IT UP OR SOMETHING, CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW IF A NEIGHBOUR HAS SOME (sorry caps) Weapon and you can get hurt too, so I'd probably go with a group of neighbours to check what's going on, rather than alone.

I'd call the cops. You probably don't want to get directly involved since it could cause even more issues down the road, but any neighbor could call the police, so they won't know who it was and you'll hopefully help the family. Often they need counseling and a child should not be in fear for his life.

I would never sit on the side lines and listen and/or watch something like that! I would call the police and see if the situation could be controlled. Too many people mainly moms and children are being hurt in horriable acts that could have been avoided in the first place. I really hope that those are not actual words. Grilling his son, that is just beyond me. Things people do these days is just too much.

it's not plazent to assist at a scene like this. sometimes my neighbours have similar problems with exhusband and often we the neighbours have to call the police to get him out of the block. it's sad when you see someone acting as crazy as he did. i don't know what was the issue that strated their quaroll, but still he shouldn't take out on his inocent kid.

Heck no, I would call the police. One because they are disturbing the peace, and two they are being ridiculously stupid. The adults. I mean the woman should know better than to stick around and stay in an abusive relationship, because its probably not the first time, but when people aren't smart enough we have to be smart for them and step in. If your afraid of them, call the police but report yourself as anonymous. Good luck.

Hi, RONDOLAWE. I will just pick up the phone and call the police. I will not sit and watch what is going on. I will try to do something about it. If it means ratting out on someone, then so be it. I don't want to allow someone to be seriously hurt or killed. If I can do something about something, I will do so. This man has no business talking this way to his wife and his son.

in the philippines, the anti-violence act against women and children, empowers anyone, including ne ighbors, to intervene and report to authorities the beatings or domestic violence, especially if it involves children and women. Those who bear witness to these acts of violence but who choose to keep a blind eye and deaf ear about it, will be liable under such law. Humane-reasons wise, i could never let someone, lest a neighbor, beat his kids and wife, within my hearing without doing anything about it. i would surely report his acts to the police or other concerned authorities who can take immediate action on such matters. if they are long in coming and there is imminent danger to the kid and woman, i will take into my own hands to stop him. just can't let anyone hurt a child, for whatever reason.

I'll just watch because, my neighbors are noble enough not to do the bad things they say. And if the action is implemented already, I'd just call the police because I don't even know or talk with our neighbors.

call the police, cause I can't manage such a situation on my own. so i'll leave it the professionals.

This business was not mine. When situations were happening. I must walk away from them. I don't need their attention. I don't involve them, because I don't know what happened. I must not judge them for fixing them.
