    I learned that lesson in childhood when younger siblings would tell me that someone did something to them and i should go pound them. Usually it was my sibling's that were in the wrong, and it wasn't something I was interested in being part of. The lesson is that everyone is a suspect until proven innocent. They are lucky that the perp was not armed.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    This is exactly why I more than likely wouldn't get involved in a 'personal dispute' (as opposed to something like an armed robbery happening in the same store I'm in) even if I witnessed it from the beginning... you still never know who was in the right or wrong or all the facts about what triggered the dispute.

    I'd be pressing charges and filing a suit against the "good samaritans".
