Answers
Handful is ready to resort to violence in order to achieve her freedom because she has reached her breaking point. Not only is she a slave, and not only is she denied her God-given human right of freedom, but she is subjected to merciless punishments and cruelties, from being whipped to having her foot mangled in the Work House. She is unable to save money to pay for her freedom, and so the only option she can find is violence.
