Justifiable killing
Sweden MJeyy 
When do you think its fine to kill a person? Lets say a murderer who has killed your family/relatives or just alot of people. Is it justifiable to give them death penalty or someone else murdering them, for example the relatives which survived but their families didnt. Or do you think killing in general is wrong even people seeking revenge?

I think killing someone intentionally should be immediate death penalty. It would be better for community because murder rates would probably go down a lot. on the other hand it's not good for individuals. but Community>individuals
2018-05-21 22:12
btw death penalty =/= murder
2018-05-21 22:12
Why do you think that? And either way isnt that just a euphemism?

But can death really be considered a punishment if theres no afterlife? I would rather die than spend the rest of my life in a prison for sure.
2018-05-21 22:21
Yes. So if someone abused animals/humans dont they deserve the same abuse they gave?

If the death was quick then the only ones really suffering are the people close to the victim. I don't think giving the murderer the 'same abuse' is fair in this case.
2018-05-21 22:30
I mean yeah in a sense if there is no afterlife, The person getting that torture wont really change anything except for maybe the people feeling better the person got what they deserved.

so if you have a gun and you are in your room, sudently a psychopath breaks into your house threatening your mother/father/whatever. If you had the chance to kill him, wouldn't you do it to save your family/loved ones ?

Ethics would suggest that there is never a justifiable time to kill a human. While many disagree I don't know how logical the reasons can be. Take the context out and by default it is morally wrong to kill another human. You are left with making a decision out of emotion and not out of logic essentially. That is not how the world works though. We try to use context to make informed decisions on how to punish people for their wrongdoings, accepting in the meantime that a greater good may come out of it. i.e. you killed someone for killing your family, yet it is wrong to kill someone so while you may be punished it most likely will be far less severe than killing someone at random. When you think further and further about things, I mean actually think about them it becomes much more difficult to have the same conviction you may have had when you were far less informed. For me it is very difficult to say that killing someone for any reason is justifiable for the simple fact that killing people is wrong, regardless of context. Think of another example to kind of solidify my point I guess. Imagine your scenario again. Someone has killed your family. Spouse, children, parents, anyone. They chose to do that, so you kill them for making that choice. You just did the same thing to someone else's family. Does someone just accept that their family dies because they made a terrible choice? Does that give them the right to kill you? What if your family member instigated violence to cause them to be killed? Do you accept that they died then or does it not matter so long as someone killed your family? To me, that is where you see that the line between acceptable and not acceptable starts to blur. It really is a tough question, but ultimately I think I come to a no. It is never justifiable to kill someone. Would that change if I was in the position? I would hope not but one can never know...

If you ask a moneylender for money and then you pay him all that remains, but even with that he still wanting your money, making an endless debt and start to threat your family if your didn't pay him. For me killing the guy is the only way.

The family should have the right to decide what to do with him but imho capital punishment is expensive and it's easy way out for the criminal. I think it's far better to let him rot in prison for 30+ years then to give him time of the day and waste resources on painlessly killing him with the needle.
