I will say that I really hate it when I see people yelling at their kids too. Usually if you do say something, you should only do it by empathising with the parent, so they don't get defensive and calm down. And if you really want to do something, perhaps work to offer non violent parenting classes in your local area?

Well, in my case, when I spent about two years at the end of my rope, I actually ended up yelling at ds1 more when we were out in public. When we were out, I wanted to get something finished, I wanted to get home, I was often carrying heavy items (eg. groceries) and wanted to unload them...and I - completely unreasonably - wanted him to stop being a toddler/preschooler and just do what he was told and hurry up. I'm not proud of myself. But, the fact that I felt "so free to yell and scream" in public didn't mean there was anything going on "behind closed doors".
