Losing control of your anger is human we all do it. 90% of the time we regret it. But sometimes force is called for. Almost half the time you lose control of yourself and become violent, later you will regret it. But there is the exception of self-defense. If you’re confronted with an individual that is violent and wants to fight, and actually does attempt to strike you, you have to roll the dice and fight. Laws from state to state vary, but in Nevada where I live if someone is within range of striking. You or if the person is even fifteen feet away from you and making a case that he wants to do harm to you. That right there is battery and if you engage the person 9 out of 10 times if the police come and no serious harm was inflected and EMS doesn’t need to be called out you will be on your way.
