Beth, two points:

1.  If someone does a wrong, it requires justice.  Not revenge, but 
justice.  This is necessary as a deterrent, and is the morally correct 
thing to do.

2.  If I found out that some jerk down the block had harmed his own 
family and was planning to harm my family, you can bet I'm gonna take 
him out before he has a chance to touch my family.  The same thing 
applies on a bigger scale, as horrible as it can be.
