Is this sentence in a wrong tense?
"How can you stand by when those boys are kicking the cat?"
Should it be "How could you stand by when those boys were kicking the cat?"
Thanks!What I can't get is that ..
If it is in present tense, then why the heck the speaker was just asking a question but didn't stop the boys him/herself...
So.. I think .. maybe it should be in past tense? (in a realistic situation)
