If we’re teaching our three year-olds, the answer is “Never!”
But what about in real life?
To protect the vulnerable?
To teach an disrespecting loudmouth a lesson?
Strictly for self defense?
As a preemptive strike?
Or is there a certain code that defines when someone deserves a shot…say, someone insults your woman/ man/ mom?
Someone is insulting someone who can’t hit?
Someone is just such an asshole that the world will be better if his nose is broken?
Someone is a Red Sox fan and is (as they usually are) talking?
What do you think?
