As a survivor of domestic violence, there are multiple occasions when I should have called the police but did not out of fear. I was afraid of the outcome, of escalating the violence. When I finally sought a restraining order against my abuser, the judge cited the multiple instances that I did not call the police as her reasoning for dismissing it. I urge people to consider the long term consequences in the court of law when they decide to "handle crisis situations" alone.
