You're Ok . .

As Art pointed out, it's natural to want to be rid of the scumbags, but you did several things that make you a good man. You controlled youself. Though we all hate violent, brutal acts, you didn't sink to his level (hate the sin, not the sinner). Part of being a big kid is controlling your temper, you did that. Further, as gratifying as it would have been to waste the mo'fo', you understand that you're not in the judgment business, vengence is God's, not yours. You came in in the middle of an incident, you don't know all the background or what went on before your arrival, you stopped a violent attack, with held judgment, kept your cool, and everyhting worked out. When one has perfect knowledge, the right decision is easy, anything less is 'best guess'. Carry on, sir. M2
