thelost Posted November 13, 2010 Share Posted November 13, 2010 i dont know where to post this but anyway i have a question about verbal abuse. suppose someone yells and swears at you. can they get into trouble for it? can they go to jail? can the police do anything about it? im just asking coz i live in aus and my auntie gets verbally abused by her husband daily. yelling, cursing, swearing etc etc. the police here say they cant do anything unless he touches her, like punches her, slaps her etc etc. is that true? so does that mean if you abuse people verbally you can get away with it as long as you dont do anything physical?
