    The fragment you posted can't be used on its own. It would normally appear at the end of a longer sentence.

    "Abuse should always be illegal, be it physical or verbal".

    The above means "Abuse should always be illegal, regardless of whether it is physical abuse or verbal abuse".

    Note that I corrected your "it's" to "its". The apostrophe in your post was incorrect. "It's" is the contraction of "it is" but you needed the possessive "its".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
