    Hypothetical question.

    What could somebody do that would justify you (personally) killing them?

    The assumptions for this hypothetical question are
    1) that you have absolute proof they did it,
    2) you have absolute immunity for your actions,
    3) you are the sole deliverer of punishment (courts are not involved)

    Would you kill somebody?, And what crime would warrant this action?

    Just curious.

    Raping/molesting/abusing a child.

    Murdering an innocent person for personal gain, or "just because".

    it is not to me to take another humans life...i have faced that once and prefer to never face it again....but i would have killed as calmly as i type this... he treated me and more importantly my child...i would not kill over property...nor would i kill someone for taking a life...unless for some reason i was standing between this person taking another innocents life...i would only kill for a preventive measure not to take revengue...if someone killed my love one...i would want to kill...but i do not think i could..i hope i am never tested with that....you really dont know how you would react...you can huff and puff and say this and that....cyber dick rattling at its best...but until you are there...you have no real clue what you will do or how you will react...

    but hey that is the nice thing about being a witch...we just curse your ass...in more ways than one...

    Given the stipulations he posted above, I look at it as population control. The world has no use for the two types of people I mentioned, and would be better off withou them.

    Interesting. Preemptive justifiable homicide. Not really my question, but you still answered it with something I can understand.

    i think most call it self defense or defense of another.....it simply goes to the fight or flight theory i guess...if you are where you cant run or dont have a place to run then you only have one option...to fight...i think that is why most fight....its not courage or bravery...it is simply you have no other options...think of men in combat who fall on grenade to save others....do they debate this in the nano time it took to make the decision...no...they fight...it is the mentality of a warrior...i am sorry to say i believe it is the same mentality that drives suicide bombers...there is not other option...be it only true to them..that is all that it needs to be true too...

    you have people on message boards who have never faced combat...yet seem to talk as if they know all about it...even in combat how many men will actually fire their weapon at the enemy? as opposed to those just trying to get out alive?

    unfortunately i know death and men that murder all too well. but that is for another time and day
