i have been in and seen situations that require due thought. If someone is in the act - you stop them if it is in your power. I do not retaliate - that is a matter for police.

no to this one

Education is the best answer i know of. I also understand hating the group. But where they are peaceful - they should have the same limits on freedom as you. If you can stand up and say "NAZI's are bad" then they have the same right to stand up and say "Brendon is bad".
You are also acutely sensitive to your particular group, But think about all the genocides that occur everywhere - The American Indians on 2 continents, Chinese peoples, recently in both Rawanda and what was Yugoslavia, what of the Caananites?
What I am saying is that all of our pasts are filled with genocidal maniacs, everyone of us. Many Nazi's of today cling to a past they were not responsible for. I can olny punish them for their actions directly. Now - if they go around beating people up, then they need to be treated like the "gang" they are, arrest, prosecute em, etc... If they put up posters, hand out fliers and march, then use them as a tool to show the young what NOT to be like.
