It was a night not unlike most as College of Idaho strength and conditioning coach Mike Shines walked out of a dinner lounge in downtown Boise. He noticed a group of people had gathered outside. Shines walked over to see the subject of the gathering—a man physically abusing a woman.
Shines stood among the group, just like the others, until the woman was shoved onto his car. That is when he spoke up and said something.
“I asked myself, ‘Had he not thrown her on my car, would I have stood there like everybody else, or would I have done something?’” Shines said.
