I'm not sure if this belongs in this section or not but here goes,
Three days when my parents came home from shopping they were yelling at each other. Before they came into the kitchen to argue and scream more, my dad kicked a hole into the side of the staircase then my mom tried to explain why they were arguing to my sister. That's when my dad got even more angry and kicked in one of the cupboard doors in the kitchen. My mom got angry that he was breaking things and pushed him but he pushed back and that's how they got into it physically... Like my started hitting him with her hands (he was just trying to push her off him and pushed her to the floor in the process) and then hit him with the bat in the head and the thigh and then hit him with a water bottle.
While this was going on I went upstairs and called the cops on both of them. The cops came but only arrested my mom cause she told the police that if they didn't come her and my dad would still be arguing with each other and that she would kick me and my sister asses for calling the cops in the first place (cause the cops were never ever called before and much worse stuff has happened).
Basically she had to spend a day in jail, has a criminal record now, and can't get her nursing degree (she wanted to but cant cause she said once you get arrested you cant get financial aid). On top of this she said that its gonna be hard for her to get a good job now and that she's leaving the house permanently and moving in with her brother after her probation hearing (she was cursing a lot at me, my sister, and my dad at how much she hates all of us and how much of a mistake we were).
No one in the family supports what I did and feel that I should have not done it. I feel horrible for calling the cops on her but I was afraid that either her or my father were going to hurt one another. On top of that she drinks a lot (she promised to stop Christmas then broke her promise then promised again on new years when things got really bad, but that's another post for another time) so i think she has a tendency to get angrier.
Sorry if this post is long, my families just going through a lot right now. Like my sister was crying earlier when my mom came home (she couldn't afford to stay in a motel another day after she got out of jail and had to come here. We all thought she was going to work thought but I think she quit cause she's leaving the state soon) - cause she smelled and cause she looked messy (like she needed a change of clothes even though im sure she showered and she looked like she was crying a lot).
It just hurts a lot even thought im trying not to show it cause everyones making me feel bad cause im the one that called but if i didnt this would have kept on like it has for so many years.
