Am i justified?

If someone assulted me but didnt leave a mark, and i defended myself and left a mark on them, am i still justified and in the right? There is a witness.

It sounds like self defense, so you should be just fine, girl :)

I'm hoping when you say girl, you and her are pretty friendly. If so, that's good. I'm glad you're becoming friendly with my ask.com bestie.
Report as
Oh, yep I like mikababy!
Report as
Okay, that's good. At least SHE emails me, lol.
Report as
:P You already heard my reason for that
Report as
Yes I did. But still. She has no problem with me
Report as
Im confused...
Report as
About what?
Report as
Ive emailed you?
Report as
Yes. This is the silent ninja remember?
Report as
Damn! I didnt know you changed your name! I feel stupid.
Report as
Wait... Okay, so you FORGOT that this was my backup account? Or I DIDN'T tell you that this was my other account and all this time I was asking you weird questions and you didn't know it was me?
Report as
Well plenty of people ask weird questions, ninja
Report as
You didnt didnt tell me you had a backup account. And yeah i was wondering why the person was asking me weird questions!
Report as
@Jackie: Let's say that my questions are really weird.
@Mika: wow. Can't believe that. That's an epic moment
Report as
I have many of them
Report as
I had one when I first saw you
Report as
Which was?
Report as
(Palm to face) I had an EPIC MOMENT when I first saw you.
Report as
I mean what happened? You saw me and said OH HEY THIS GIRL IS COOL?
Report as
Not really. I said, "Hey, this girl is HOT." Then, well, I don't know what happened after that. I just knew you were cute and since you were cute I wanted to talk to you more.
Report as
Haha which now we do :)
Report as
Of course. You don't include a lot of information with the weird stuff, though. Maybe just a little more information would be cool.
Report as
Im sorry. Ill be sure to be more open
Report as
It's okay. Leave some to the imagination. But it would be nice to appeal to the senses a bit.
Report as
Jackie is probably reading this and thinking "oh lord" lmao!
Report as
nah, I don't think she has a problem. She's straight but she finds some girls attractive. I'm sure you might be one of them.
Report as
No i meant like thinking this whole conversation is weird
Report as
I don't know. She's surely not saying anything. It would be nice to have her opinion.
Report as
Jackie!!!!!!
Report as
Jackie!!! Where are you?! Lumos Maxima! (Carries lit wand down the dark corridor and tells her to follow. Along the way, they meet some beastly creatures and have some weird adventures. In which Mika narrates the first one.)
Report as
(As Passage fights the deatheater, Mika stabs voldimort in the eye with her wand while singing "we are the champions")
Report as
Wow. Nice way to reach the ending. I think it's about time me and you wrote a story together. I think it would be nice. Hm... Okay, what would you like to write about? It doesn't have to be long or anything; I'll take care of that.
Report as
The war between the ninja mole rats and the panda warriors, and how the world fell from power, leaving humans to live in captivity over the newly evolved animal rulers
Report as
I'm here! And no, I think it's fine and peachy :D
Report as
It will be interesting :)
Report as
It will. But we should have a lot of humans in it. i want some you know what in there.
Report as
Sorry, I'm late for Professor McGonagall's class, gtg!
Report as
Jackie! Seriously, we're trying to get out of this dark corridor and all you can think about is being late to class? You are such a Hermione!
Report as
Ill leave that all up to you
Report as
And you need to have some part in it too. Just a few paragraphs would be nice. Nothing major.
Report as
Alright. Ill start turning on my imagination
Report as
Yes sir! But first we need to figure out a concept. Character names. Im not gonna use Bob and Sue :p
Report as
Oh, you do concept? I just go with a storyline, make up character names after I figure out how many character there will be, and then start rounding up the events in the story into chapters.
Report as
Well yeah... But im not just gonna write THAT without knowing names, characters, what led up to IT.
Report as
of course not. okay, i do the ninja names and do the panda warriors. better yet, go on yahoo and find pictures of some of these characters. name them whatever comes to mind.
Report as
Oh alright. Ill get that. But like Jackie said, late for class :p Ill be on later
Report as
So will I. For me, it's 11; I'll be on again around 1:30 to 2. That will be in like 2-3 hours. I know, you have to wait a long time. How do you think I feel?
Report as
Ill be on around that time too

Self defense is not a crime and you don't know if you don't have a mark. Some marks aren't visiable to the naked eye.

yes, you were attacked first, it doesnt matter if they left a mark, if you struck back with your full capability to defend yourself, then that isnt an issue. you were in the right

As long as there is evidence that they attacked/assaulted you first, then yes. If you can prove you were defending yourself, then you're fine. If it was school, then there might be different rules because school is stupid. Well, actually, a lot of places are like that.
Is this what started your year out horrible?

Report as
Oh. So I guess I'm not a creepy stalker then.
Report as

No you didnt. Because you refuse to show me your face. If i remember correctly i was the one to mention it and you said no
Report as

Then what is it? Afriad im gonna turn out to be some old ugly cat lady?
Report as
I know you're not.
It's just me, though.
Report as
What about you? I already told you, you have nothing to worry about
Report as
But you've never seen me. I look a bit older than I am. I'm 19. Okay, well I'm turning 19 in like, never mind, not telling you when my birthday is.
Report as
And why the hell not?
Report as
I feel it would be too much attention. That's why I don't like telling people about it. I don't want them making a big fuss over it. But, then again, when they know about it, and they don't do anything, I feel hurt. It might be good to just not tell people
Report as
I know the feeling, but come on. Its nice for people to wish you happy birthday.
Report as
Ehh. I'll let you know before it comes to my birthday. Just to give you a heads up, though, it's next week. And I probably won't celebrate it with much, which is very depressing.
Report as
Just keep talking and you'll find out soon.
Report as
Well just incase Happy early Birthday

If you have a witness to be assault first then you have the right to defend yourself no matter what's happen to the attacker.

No problem, the word of two against one! You were attacked, you have the right to defend yourself to the point of stopping the attack! If they backed off and you continued beating them then you would have a problem. Get a notarized statement or police report with the witness statements in it for a civil suit defense just in case the other person sues you!

I may have accidently sliced his arm :/
Report as
Sliced his arm?.... man what was he trying to do to you then?
Report as
We got in a fight and he started choking me, so i grabbed his arm and my ring accidently cut him.
Report as
Wow then he deserved his arm to be slit open for that freaking choking a girl was he your boyfriend or what?
Report as
Hes my abusive ex...
Report as
Wait hold the phone.... he was your ex and he was doing this to you?... Did you contact the authorities about this and explain what he did?... If not you should of done so because not trying to scare you he might try to come after you this time and it would turn worse case scenario of him going far beyond then just hurting you if you know what I mean....
Report as
Yes i know. And i have called the police before. They havent done anything about it. And the only reason i havent called them on this is because i have no mark. He does. And the only witness is a buddy of his. So i dont know if he would stand up for me, or take his side.
Report as
I swear cops these damn days just sit on their fat azzes and get bigger and not even do hardly any justice in, but would rather say over the phone well there's nothing we can do sorry then hang up and probably start hittin' the donut shop up with a cup of coffee on the side..... sorry to hear about this happening to you need to carry protection with you like a taser and light his azz up next time until he p!sses his pants or pepper spray to almost blind his sorry azz...
Report as
Ive always said id rather him beat on me then someone who cant handle it. I have one of those concealed knife/nail file things. If i get anything bigger, my parents will start asking questions
Report as
How old are you and him?... If not mind me asking and don't or have you not told your parents about his abusing you or not?
Report as
Im 16. Hes turning 19. And no i havent told them, and im not going too. Ive talked to my friends dad whos a cop, and he says he might be able to help
