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.
