I just wanted some clarification to your question is all....If I were married I would NEVER stop beating my wife.  I am very competitive and whatever thing we would compete in, I would "beat" her.  Whether that be a game of pool or a card game, etc...I would do my best to BEAT HER!  You?  Or do you need some more clarification?

I didn't put quotation marks around "beat."

I did not put quotation marks around "beat," and that is important because the lack indicates that I was using the word in a strict, not colloquial sense.  As in, "to strike repeatedly."  If I intended the word to be colloquial, I would have used quotation marks, which are also used to indicate colloquialisms, not just to attribute some exact phrase as the speech of another.

In any case, you've also failed to answer the question of whether the cops who attacked Ryan and his compatriots should be tossed in prison for their numerous crimes.

Nah, you just dump them in the barrel with the fish...

(for kelteckiller's benefit: that's a joke, relating to "shooting fish in a barrel," which is a colloquial phrase referring to defeating someone easily)
