my friend's gonin out with this total jackass, and i heard him say that if she doesn't sleep with him after the Homecoming, he's gonna break up with her or force her. i went to the concelor, but i have a past juvenial record and she wouldn't listen. neither will my friend. she wont believe me. i tried to confront the guy but he pushed me against the wall and told me not to [fiddlestick] with his life. i hate to admit it but he scares me and i really think he could hurt my friend. what do i do? Homecoming is next friday! HELP!

Well, I'd say try to talk to your friend again. Try doing it in a calm, rational way and she's much more likely to listen than if you do it hysterically. (Not saying that you did, just giving advice.) Tell her that he's been violent with you and that you don't doubt he might be violent with her.

If she doesn't listen, try telling another grownup--maybe another guidance counselor, or a teacher you trust.

If all else fails, keep an eye on her during and after homecoming as best you can.

(side note: would this maybe fit better in relationships?)

You're right, MarvellousPurple - I'll just move it over there.
