Lets say you found a girl you love and she told you how her ex boyfriend was not only emotionally but physically abusive towards her, and basically treated her as his slave, would you want to find him and beat him up?

Not worth the drama and possible legal trouble that would cause. Not to mention it could backfire and you'd get really hurt yourself.1

No, I would leave him alone. . . unless he began to cause a problem.
Women have been known to tell lies, especially about former partners. Unless or until I saw for myself that he was an abusive psycho, I would leave well enough alone.
It should be remembered that she picked the abusive psycho as a boyfriend and chose to remain with him after the abusive behaviour began.
Although he may have been an abusive psycho, she was, to a large extent, the architect other own misery.
Her decision to leave him was motivated most likely by an improvement in her self esteem, to the point that one day she decided that she did not deserve to be treated in that way.
If he became a problem during my relationship with that female, I would assess the nature of the problem and potential threat, in terms of her and my physical safety.
Depending upon my assessment of that threat, my response would range between speaking with him, using my knowledge of martial arts to inflict a beating that he would remember for the rest of his life, or opting for a more final solution.
