Surely the the aim of protecting your assailant from harm puts aikido at odds with the majority of martial arts out there?
Maybe it is out of self interest. Even the thug who likes watching fallen enemies bleed out knows that he will go to jail if caught.

Someone I know once said of a poor person who walked by "Wouldn't waste a bullet on him."
