If you can prove that he did enough to deserve the beating(given there's such law that listens to your reasons for hitting someone) ..Why should that be a bad thing..And why should you still be considered the bad guy ..
I mean in developing(corrupt)countries ..Where police isn't acting as the police in minor cases(minor for them not for you) shouldn't you have the right to rightfully dispose your anger on someone who caused it and is understandably beaten up?
There are people who should not continue in the world, such as muclims, as can be seen here:
"You honestly know nothing about Islam, in the battle of Medina, Mohamed decapitated all the men, enslaved the women and children.
Additionally, in Quran 65:4:
"And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the 'Iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.E. They are still immature) their 'Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death]. And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their 'Iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him."
wait, they are immature, as in, younger than around 13, there is a reason to hate Islam, it supports pedophilia! Well guess what the TRUE GOD says about this, Mark 9:42:
"And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."
Wow, a millstone around your neck and cast into the depths of the sea? Sounds like Jesus takes seriously to this crap.
Verse 33.50 says:
"O Prophet! Surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those [slaves] whom your right hand possesses (they are regarded as things or property) out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who fled with you; and a believing woman if she gave herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desired to marry her – specially for you, not for the (rest of) believers; We know what We have ordained for them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess in order that no blame may attach to you; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful".
Wow, sex slaves, really, so much for "Islam is good, trust the liberal television, Quran 4:34:
"Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great."
"surely Allah is high, great", nu uh, not from this view, sounds like Allah is a worm, a little chauvinistic worm, it also sounds like Allah is the father of lies, the prince of the power of the air.
I just want to say that there is a difference between attacking in self defense and beating someone who you think deserves it. If the person is verbally harassing you and you decide to beat them for that, you are still in the wrong because they did not physically assault you at all. What you are saying is that if someone makes you angry then you have the right to beat them up cause they made you angry, how on earth does that sound reasonable or sane? You should be considered the bad guy in all circumstances like that and you should be persecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Violence in self-defense is one thing. Violence i.e. force with the aim of deterring or incapacitating crime (not for revenge) carried out by the government is one thing. Violence because you are angry at someone, especially someone who merely insulted you is creating unnecessary conflict, chaos, and disorder in the world.
And from a rational self-interested standpoint it does you no good either. Even if we lived in a world where the government would excuse assault charges if someone insulted you it still would do you no good, because if you assault someone it's liable to escalate into a fight. Then you could get injured, or you could acquire a nasty reputation as someone who is easily angered. Gossip might even twist the story so that people think you started it, and people may be justified in that interpretation if you just misinterpreted the person's intentions and they had intended no offense at all. At any rate more and more people will likely try to avoid interacting with you.
Think before you act. Just because someone says "fighting words" doesn't mean you must fight. It is more beneficial to let it go. If you must, then dismiss the insult, show you don't care with some expression like "what ever" or "cool story bro" and then go on with what you are doing as if they had said nothing. Then you will get a reputation for being level-headed and calm. People will trust you more. Doors will open for you.
There is never a good reason to physically harm another human, except if done so because it was the only way to protect other individuals. No matter how bad the person may treat you, or how bad they may be, you should never exchange evil for evil and harming another person is typically evil (with the exception being what I said before.)
