I think i’d stay mum until it a) sounded threatening b) i felt threatened or c) it occured more than once. I’ve lived near shady people and sometimes putting your neck out there isn’t worht it for YOURSELF. But if it woke you up in the middle of the night, it sounded like things were being thrown, or it sounded like someone was in danger, I’d call anonymously (and state that i definitely want to stay anonymous) that there was a disturbance and you are concerned for the girls’ safety.

I tend to mine my own business as much as I can though. A fight is a fight and that’s relatively normal. Plus, she moved out. Calling the cops on him coudl just make it worse for her, too.

I also tend to mind my own business unless it seems very threatening. Especially if it is indoors….people sometimes don’t realize you can hear them.

One time Fiance did call the police. There was a guy and girl (young) walking down the street and decided to stop caddy corner from our house. Our kids were outside playing and Fiance and I were tending to the yard and the conversation got heated, there was cussing, the guy threw his bottle at the girl and it looked like he might hit her. Fi asked them to please take it somewhere else, kids are around (not just ours) and then the guy started to get angry with Fiance. So we got the kids inside and Fiance called the police. They already knew who he was and he had been in trouble for domestic violence before. We’d never seen him before.
