So I was just going a walk and, since it's 3am and I live in city centre, there are a good few drunks walking home from clubs.

Anyway, I saw these 2 guys fighting and proper going at it - so I called the police.

I just thought it was quite weird, since I've never had to do it before. Is calling the police for a fight normal or is that just wasting their time?

It wasn't like a wee push around or something, one guy was severely beating the other guy.

Nah, their job is to write tickets.

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

if the police have the time to participate in the "war on drugs," then theyve got time to check out that fight

This. You shouldn't feel weird about it at all.


This, you'd actually be kinda a dick if you didn't call them.

No-one calls the police anymore, they just leave doughnut trails leading to the scene of the crime.

You should have video taped it and posted it on youtube instead. What the hell is wrong with you, TS?

Make the police get off their asses and do their jobs.

I'm sure the guy getting his face beaten in thought calling the police was the right decision.
My complaint isn't with the cops, it's with the EMS service. They're suppose to be calm and collected but most of the time they come off as cold and moody.
One time I called 911 because I saw a dog get hit HARD by a car and was limping all over the road and the man on the other line goes "well what do you want me to do about it?". I know it's not their expertise but yeesh you could've contacted ASPCA or something...

Drunken fights are the sort of thing that sort themselves out. No need to get the cops involved unless one participant gets mortally wounded.

The guy should have grown a pair and fought back.

Isn't the problem with this that you want to prevent someone from being mortally wounded?

You did the right thing. They get a worse rep than they deserve, for the most part most cops are actually pretty understanding and are more concerned with keeping people safe then dealing out tickets left and right for breaking any rule.
Have a good one,

You did the right thing TS. There should be more people like you. Instead, we have people who spectate rape in a public area, and record it, and do nothing.
