The Officious Ones II

Picture if you will:
A couple walking down the street apparently having a heated argument, maybe with a little pushing and shoving involved as well.

And someone walking or riding their bicycle on the other side of the street witnessing their momentary conflict.  But, figuring it's a possible domestic abuse they're witnessing, this person takes it upon themselves to call the police and report this incident.

Do I have to mention the potential hazards this type of scenario could possibly pose for the arguing couple?  How a quota-seeking cop might finagle some kind of "just cause" as an excuse to make an arrest (or worse)?
Or that the motto of the police should read "To Purge Is How We Serve"?
