"The male juror hit by the bag of excrement suffered depression and was released from service by the judge."
It really depends on the situation at hand. If my understanding of the question is correct, here is an example:
What would you do if you saw a member of the KKK beating a black man to death for no reason other than being black? probably fight to win;
What would you do if someone refused to accept your personal social or religious beliefs? probably mediate to coexist.
Does that help any?
Ve Germans are very good at coexisting. Just ask ze French.
