I was just wondering, in what kind of situation could you kill another person? Say the police and the law aren't relevant (e.g. you wouldn't go to prison for killing someone, and the police wouldn't care about anything) Personally I could only do it in self-defence...

A - You wouldn't kill anyone for any reason at all.

B - You've just entered your living room to find a man with a knife standing over the bodies of your family. He's just turned round, and is about to attack you. You happen to be holding a very large, very sharp knife. Would you kill him?

C - You've just entered your living room to find a man with a knife standing over the bodies of your family. He hasn't seen you yet. You happen to be holding a very large, very sharp knife. Would you kill him?

D - You've just entered your living room to find a man with a knife standing over the bodies of your family. He hasn't seen you yet. You know that in a drawer in the kitchen, there is a very large, very sharp knife. Would you go get it and kill him?

E - You've just entered your living room to find a family friend with a knife standing over the bodies of your family. He runs off without seeing you and drives off. You know exactly where he lives. Would you spend weeks planning how to get into his well-guarded house to kill him while he sleeps?

I'd first ask him how he got my family to come all the way across the country and into my living room.

In most of these cases, it's kill or be killed.

Yeah kill or be killed - that ones easy. But if he hadnt seen me i would definately try to wound him so he couldnt escape. If it ends in death, well, he had it coming.


What would you do after you've wounded him? If there wasn't police...
#11
Option F - Someone posts a silly post.
Would you kill him?

answer: yes
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

This is a silly question, B C D E, Who wouldnt kill the man who murdered his family?

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

Kill him? No, that's too easy. I'll make him pay for what he's done. I only chose option B. Self defense.

It's a better punishment to live the rest of his life scarred and have him off himself than for me to do the dirty work.

I'd kill him slowly. And I mean I'd torture him until he was begging to die.

this.

why the hell would you kill him? that's giving him an easy way out. Make him rot in a cell or make his life hell.

I'll take situation B, however I would not kill him, I've had too much training to puss out like this, I'd wail on him greatly, perhaps make him eat the rest of his life through a straw and then hand him to the police.

If it were a case of "it's me or him", I'd knife the bastard. I only ever hurt people in self defense.

And E is totally irrelevent for me. I'd never kill him in his sleep. I'd wake the ****er up and make his end a very painful one.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Seeing as he's about to attack me, yes.

Even if he isn't going to attack me, I'm not going to let him leave after doing that. And I'm especially not going to trust a court to give him a death sentence.

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

Fff I honestly wouldn't even care if he murdered my family, I'm killing the guy in my living room in with a knife in his hand.

Really? Not even to save a family member? That seems very selfish of you. I would definitely use potentially lethal force in defense of another. Obviously any situation would need to be weighed, if I'm in a grocery store with my family and a gunman storms in the other side of the store, I'm hiding myself and my family and calling the cops. But I think the guilt of not acting when you could have would be worse than the potential guilt of killing the threatening person. I hope to never be in any situation where that choice is forced on me.
#39
B, C, and possibly D if there's a chance he would try to kill me.
For E I would call the cops, have him arrested, and f*ck his wife.

If situation "E" was the case, I would just call the police. Otherwise, in situations B,C,and D, if it was to protect my family, I would kill a man.
