If someone extremely hurt your child would you let the authorities handle it or take justice into your own hands?

  • BOTH
    If someone hurt my child and didn't get place in jail or prison they better fucking hide,
    I'm like a mama bear, you don't mess with my young. I will hunt them down, slowly torture them. Then make sure their body is never found.

  • Depends on the circumstances.

  • It depends. If the person who hurt my child was readily available I would most likely attack them and get off Scott free because it would be considered a crime of passion. If I had to go hunt the person down then I would let the cops handle it. I wouldn't want to hurt my child more by taking their mom away from them by getting thrown in jail while they need you.

  • I would hurt them like they hurt my child then call the cops and say I did mine by accident.

  • I would let the law handle it...what good to my child am I in prison? My gut would want to destroy that person, but my brain needs to take over and be reasonable. My child has suffered enough, why add to it by having a mom in jail?

  • If someone hurt my child in front of me...I would most definitely do something about it...and that person would probably end up in a body bag. If it happened when I wasn't around...depending on who it was, and why they did it...I would let the police take care of it. If it was a family member, or someone that I trusted...then I would probably also take matters into my own hands.

  • I would like to say that I would be able to step back and let the authorities handle it. Logically though, if I saw my child hurt, I don't think I could control my emotions well enough to do that.

    Ditto. I don't know if In could control my motherly insticts to protect and defend my child or not.

  • I would do to them what happened to my child and then if the law decided to do something about it they could handle it after that!
