Here's My Question? How someone else could have been involved in a situation like this, without such a civil authority? Not many of us has Police IDs and most of the time when crap like this occurs there's no officers of law is present. I've overheard dozens of conversations like that and even has put my hands in a few as well. To be honest, hasn't gone very well for me on the ground situation!

If you are with another woman (gf, wife, mother, sister or other) you can wait for the guy to go to the toilets or smoke a cigg or whatever and go to offer your help to the girl, offer to drop her home or to the police station to fill a complain. If you are alone, it's better to ask the restaurant staff to call an officer, explaining them that there is someone threatening a girl and that you are scared for her safety. Stay there until they arrive so you can be a witness of the events. If no such situation happen (you're out and there is no authority figure to help you or no way to talk to the girl alone) then just step in, offer the girl a chance to run away and talk to the man about his behavior and how you're not letting this happen. Whoever hits first is the punishable one so stay calm and just offer her a chance to hide somewhere. Afterwards, if you manage to make him leave, encourage her to fill a police complain in which you can be called as a witness, leaving her your details.

BTW kindly explain to me why anyone would make up such a story in the first place. What does he have to gain from it? He didn't even make himself out to be the hero, and it was submitted anonymously.

Nor should you... For those who are spouting the bullshit line "who cares if it's fake," well.. you should. Because it cheapens the truth of those who do step up for people. Maybe they don't do it with all the right words or as smooth as this guy intended for his hero cop to sound. But those who do step up for others still put their asses on the line to help.

I really hope this story is true. I am jaded I guess, as I know a writer in my town that writes about lonely hearts. She just makes stuff up. If this is true, bless that cops heart and his family and buddies on the force..and the first fellow that got up to straighten out that creep. And if it's not true let's hope the story inspires people to help a damsel in distress.

Um, yeah, that's what writers do. They embellish. Many of them write flat-out fiction. Just because you know ONE liar doesn't mean the entire world is lying. Besides, why would the guy who submitted this story make it up? What does he have to gain from it? He didn't even make himself out to be the hero, and it was submitted anonymously.

This story is totally fake. This incident did not happen, and if it did, it did not play out the way it was reported. Stock photo with a LOT of quoted dialogue that could not have possibly been recalled unless it was secretly recorded (which it wasn't). It's just a huge story and you guys are all falling for it with your goosebumps and your tears. Please. It's fiction. It came from someone on Reddit, for crying out loud. Be a bit more discerning in what you swallow as fact.

In the US most police departments have a non- emergency number. Look it up and store it in your phone. You can always call and ask if they have a police officer near by that might want to have a chat with the D-Bag. If I hear a threat I call 911. As I am a female I would walk up to the female and ask if she needs assistance or a ride.

l noticed a sign in one restaurant whilst traveling recently, it is set up in the ladies toilet..it tells you that if you happen to be on a dud date or he turns out not to be what his profile says or any other thing, then you go up to the bar and request a particular drink, which really does not exist and the staff will know straight away that you need help getting out and they will get you out the back door AND organize a taxi for you..more pubs/bars need to advertise something like this..

That "free country" of yours seems quite a jungle. This lady has problems bigger than this situation if she wasn't able to handle such a jerk. Why does it have to be a policeman to overhear it, she should have called the police earlier if she didn't feel safe. And otherwise just give this guy a lecture in his own dirty way. Or just take a phone and call for the taxi.

Naomi Gill

Sure. Because we all think calmly and rationally when scared out of our minds. And maybe she'd tried to take out her phone already but the creep didn't let her make the call. Maybe she was afraid he'd do something physical to her if she tried to leave. You don't know. I do. I haven't been in a situation this bad, but I have been alone with a guy who was giving me the creeps and it can take an incredible act of will just to *move.*

I'm so happy to hear that this officer knew that his family would have stood by him and that he had NO problem dealing with the jerk face. It's good to hear something good about cops because my brother is one of those good guys and it's really good to hear about it from another person who was also a good man. Police are NOT the enemy but most of the time people don't hear about it. We only hear about the bad cops of which there are quite a few of them out there, but there are also a LOT more good cops.
