Is it wrong to act as karma? From what I've been told, doing anything based on negative emotions brings bad karma. But consider this hypothetical situation: A truly evil being, who has very bad karma, is attempting to harm my friends. I am very angry at this being. I hate this being. My anger and hate are a result of my love for my friends, so ultimately it all extends from love and compassion. I then channel my anger and hate towards this evil being to give me strength, I attack this being with my anger and hate, I intend to harm this being. I am of course defending my friends and acting on my love and compassion for them, but also acting with karma, giving the evil being what it deserves.

Do I get good karma not only because I defended my friends but also because I 'helped' karma by giving the evil being what it deserves?
Do I get good karma for defending my friends, but bad karma for acting on anger and hate and harming the evil being? If so, why? Why should I get bad karma when the only one I attempted to harm had it coming and already had bad karma and threatened my friends?
Similarly, more in the area of witchcraft and Wicca (and related areas), is it morally and karmically justified to do something with the intent to harm, perhaps for a greater good, or even for vengeance, if the person to be harmed has bad karma and has it coming? Obviously it would be wrong to cast a spell on someone in attempt to kill them just because the person did something to annoy me, but what if I am only trying to give them what they deserve?
