    The legal definition of violence – the most obvious way in which we might begin to think about the term – is contained in Section 8 of the UK’s Public Order Act 1986 (, n.d.). It states: violence means any violent conduct, so that-(a) except in the context of affray [see Section 3 of the Public Order Act 1986 for a definition], it includes violent conduct towards property as well as violent conduct towards persons, and (b) it is not restricted to conduct causing or intended to cause injury or damage but includes any other violent conduct.
