what would you do if you saw a couple arguing on the street and the guy was getting pretty abusive towards the girl?

I wouldn't intervene myself, but would call the police if it looked like it might get violent and hang around until someone arrived, in case the girl needed help, or a witness!

Start causing a stir, stare the offender down, ask if there is a problem, find someone in authority or a big man to step up and if physical abuse start recording on my cellphone and get someone to call the police.

I probably wouldn't step in myself. I like the idea of recording the incident, then if it started to get REAL ugly I would definitely call the police.

yeah i probably wouldn't step in....only because if it got physical the guy could turn on me...and who would that help? but i would call the police if it was really bad...or ask the girl if she needed me to call someone or if i had my car offer her a ride and get the hell outta there!

We had a young woman probably in her 20's bang on our door late in the evening one night when I was a kid. Her and her boyfriend had been fighting and he started to get physical. My mom called the cops. I don't remember what happened after that. I remember being scared though!
