The neighbor was punching his wife in the face. Her boyfriend kicked him in the leg and knocked him down. I sat on my porch and watched the whole thing quietly as I drank beer.

If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
Stand up for your Rights,, They have no authority on their own...
All power is inherent in the people,
it is their right and duty to be at all times ARMED!
Beer is only as satisfying as the bacon you eat with it. Was there bacon involved?
What was the fight about?

PS..Good for you for not getting involved....
You couldnt at least shoot at em? Not even a little?
Dammit it hurts to laugh, stop that!

"Be not intimidated ... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your Liberties by any pretense of Politeness, Delicacy, or Decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for Hypocrisy, Chicanery, and Cowardice." - John Adams
Tyranny with Manners is still Tyranny.
On a side note, here's one of my (rarely eaten) favorite breakfasts. I call it the Heart Attack Bowl:
- Weave 2+ strips of bacon into a mat in an oven-safe bowl. (You might want to partially pre-cook the bacon.)
- Sprinkle brown sugar onto the bacon.
- Crack an egg into the bacon "bowl".
- Top with shredded cheddar.
- Bake @ 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes (until the egg and bacon are done).

Bacon + Chocolate + anything
... including ice cream.
It takes a village to raise an idiot.
I don't much care what brand. I like whats on sale and gets me happy.
Cloven-hooved meat and alcohol.
(Personally I prefer crispy and 18 years old.)
The GLENLIVET 18 yr and Fletchers thick sliced Bacon on thick toast oooh what A combo!!!
I truly Love my Country, But the government scares the he!! out of me.
Congress SHALL NOT receive A salary greater than any service member and will be given EQUIVELANT insurance as any service member
I came into this world kicking and screaming covered in someone else's blood. And if necessary to protect the Constitution of The United States of AMERICA. I will go out the same way

Let me guess.... the Husband is in the military and he just got back from deployment? I have heard this story 100 times... though I am not sure I would have stayed out of it. A guy hitting a female close fist deserves to mysteriously fall down face first onto the concrete and subdued until LEO's decide to show up.
"So there I was between a rock and a hard place, when it hit me... What am I doing on this side of the rock?"
My immediate past ex told me about an incident that happened while he was in basic training.
A group of guys were sitting around on the steps one night waiting to go to town.
One of their girlfriends showed up. She & the boyfriend got into a fight. He hit her.
Very very quickly after that he fell down.
In fact, my (ex) BF launched himself from about 6 steps up & tackled the guy.
It took about 4 of them to help him to the CO's office because he fell down and hurt himself so often along the way.
That's what they told the CO. I don't know what the unfortunate object of their attentions told him in private.
The girl was very grateful for the help, and the other guys told her that her guy was a lout and any of the rest of them would be better to her than he was.
Of course, the woman in the OP certainly helped create the bad situation, but they should've worked it out like adults, not apes.
I've told my boyfriends that they get one "oops".
One major, relationship-ending screw-up free.
One "I don't know what came over me, I'll never hurt you again"
"But honey, she kissed me"
or something along those lines.
The second time, we're done.
(And even with a free pass they'll have some serious re-earning of trust to do.)
