We mentioned the stoush resulting from the KCDC unilateraly declaring itself to be a White Ribbon council, to the disgust of some ratepayers and two councilors, in a earlier post.

However, this is to promote the campaign itself: say no to domestic violence. Usually it involves males on females, although not always.

We will mention more about Neighbourhood Watch soon, but the question can arise: what should you do if you think this is happening in a household next to you?  If it’s serious, call the cops, in fact it is a major part of what they do.  If it’s less serious, perhaps inquire in an as helpful and friendly demeanour as you can, ‘is there a problem that I can help with?’  At worst you’ll be told to mind your own business, but you could also get a positive response to that.
