The reason why Mr. Kourdakov, and his men, failed their first assignment against the Believers, is because beating up thieves, murders, fighters in bars, wife beaters, etc., is a lot different than beating up random innocent people who obey the law/not breaking any laws. Beating up random innocent people who are not law breakers or not breaking any law is not right, even if someone has the authority to do so. But it is also not right to beat up thieves, murders, fighters in bars, wife beaters, etc., unless they get beaten up in the process in getting arrested, or they caused too much damage that they had to beat up the person (people who are breaking the law). I am encouraging innocent people to defend themselves if they are attacked. I am not saying that the police should not beat up lawbreakers who are causing trouble. It’s the innocent people who get picked on just for fun and are not involved in the law that is violated, that should NOT get beaten up or possibly killed for another person’s crime, unless they volunteered, (not by disease, accident, or suicide but someone killing them, like a person or animal getting shot, stabbed, etc.,). In other words PROTECT the innocent, not the GUILTY.
