...because I truly believe that denying a person their free will is evil.
I give a specific example because this very "thing" happened to my step-daughter and it was her mother (my wife) and myself who were also threatened. We stopped him. He is now in jail. He may be in jail for a long time. We have also prepared in every way you can imagine (legally and protectively) to ensure his free will, which appears an expression of evil, will be met by a counter will, our will not to be a victim of his will.
My point is that in this world where things are not black and white, it doesn't seem helpful to make blanket statements such as "...because I truly believe that denying a person their free will is evil." Isn't it more complicated than that?
