    Definitely, if I was stronger. I would never allow anyone to hurt people that are dear to me. I'd use everything, including physical force to protect them.

    Self defense is the only reason I can think of.

    Self defense or if I saw someone hurting one of my family members.  That would make me want to go after them physically.

    I would, and have, physically lashed out at a person and persons that were physically trying to harm me and at other times trying to harm others.  Sometimes it has worked.  More than once I got my a@@ handed to me.  Would I do it again?  In a heartbeat I would.  What gets me is not defending self or others by any mean necessary, but rather those who stand by and watch a defenseless person get hurt by a predator or those who for whatever reason allow themselves to be victimized over and over.  There comes a point where if you don’t stand up for yourself you can’t expect anyone else to.  How many of us have seen battered spouses take the abuse for years?  How many of us have seen gangs jump a lone individual while a crowd stands shocked on the sidelines?  What does that say about us?  I don’t condone violence for any reason other than that of protection of self or others.  There are brutal predatory beasts among us.  As long as some of us are willing to take it, there always will be.

    lots of things. i have no problem with violence as long as there is a good reason. i'd happily break a persons arms if they tried to hit someone i cared about. steal from me or my family and your fingers will wish they were attached to different hands. this forgive and forget attitude makes me sick and i'll have no part in it. don't get me wrong, i wouldn't hit someone or hurt them just because they were rude but show me violence against me or my family and you will get it back, i promise.

    Self defense for sure. Also if I saw someone physically attacking someone that I cared for, which could be family, friend or even perhaps a stranger (though I would try to find police to handle this one because you never know the situation).

    I have a very explosive temper. Mostly I use my mouth to tear a strip off someone, BUT, hurt anyone in my family and one never knows what might happen.

    Absolutely. We were robbed when we first moved her to Brazil. If they try again, depending on how many there are of course, I would definitely fight back. I think it would give me back something I feel I have lost.

    My husband stopped a robbery happening to a pregnant woman's shop and with the assistance of another man held him down until the police arrived.  He was commentated and awarded some money for doing so.

    I think people are so mollycoddled now they don't know what to do. Would this have happened in the 50's? I don't think so, people had more morals then and would help their fellow man.

    Good question.
