Can violence be used for good?

In some peoples opinions violence can be used for good, and in others it is never used as good. I believe that violence can be used for good only in certain situations though. It is mostly in the criminal justice field and sometimes for personal use.

I believe that violence can be used for good if some is getting attacked on the street or anywhere, where they could be in possible danger. This doesn’t mean that they have to use violence to kill the opponent just enough to get them to go away. I think that the concealed weapons permits are a great thing to have. In most cases it depends where you live or what kind of environment you live in that will cause the most trouble. If you live in an area with a high crime rate then I think it would be a good idea to look into self defense classes or self defense weapons and such. It never hurts to be prepared because you never know what could happen.

Violence can also be used for good in the criminal justice program. When law enforcement has an unruly law breaker they may need to use some sort of violence to detain them. Whether it be physical violence or any other type of violence. Or the law could possibly need to use violence if there is a big crowd that they need to get under control, they may need to do some things to control it, so that they are in control and can handle it. Or if a citizen does something extremely bad the law could do something worse to them, like the death penalty. I think that that is a fair penalty if something very drastic has been done.

There were a few reasons why I believe that violence can be used for good. We already do use it for good so I don’t even think anybody would be able to change that.
