    Depends on what it was. If someone abused my kids, I'd be very tempted to take my revolver over to their house.

    We have a paroled child sex abuser living on my block. I walk by his house every morning when I walk my son to school. I cannot even look at him. It is very frustrating to have someone like that living so near but there are many here in rural CA.

    Add "maybe" to the poll.

    I said no- but only because of the consequences I would face if I did.

    Will do. Sorry I tend to see things in black and white sometimes.

    Let me know what other selections you want, Alois, and I can edit the poll for you.

    A "maybe" is a "yes." If, under certain circumstances, you would do something illegal to defned or protect a loved one that's a yes.

    I sure would.

    I voted "maybe", but the truth is this: let some pervert touch one of my family, and they'll wish they'd opted for castration.

    I'd gladly go to jail for that.

    the veneer of civilization is always there, but you nevre know what lies beneath the surface
    the problem with doing something like this is that you will longer time in jail than the offender, plus your family will suffer a double pain for the one hurt and for the loss of you while you are behind bars
    not to be mercenary also but family will have to pay money for lawyers

    a very wise perspective, chattsy.
    furthermore, i don't know if i am capable of inflicting serious harm on another being.
    what i do know, is somehow, i would want to make the perp regret what s/he did.
