Ole was reffering to the situation when, for instance someone wants to kill innocent people, and all the peacefull ways of preventing him to do so fail, then the only way is to break somebodys arm, to prevent killing ( I heard that explenation from Ole many times) It is in accord with Vajrayana precepts.

Ole's advice was he should break the other's arm. A murmur went through the crowd, Ole looked irritated for a moment, then he repeated what he had said.
