If I kill them, they're not innocent, to me.

There was a point at which Hitler was likely 'innocent.' When he was first born.
Would you kill Hitler when he was innocent? Probably. Because you already know how he turns out.

Going by a strict definition, no is truly 'innocent' really, past the age of 10. Or less than 10, perhaps.
If you went by that, then you could kill anyone. Because that would mean all would turn out to be guilty, or "non-innocent"

Life isn't precious, not really. It isn't a gem. It is common, in fact, and as is death. There are more dead things than living things on Earth.
What is precious, then? Existence? Contentment? Ideals? Truth? I'm sure you would get a variety of answers from a variety of people.

You ask me what would make me kill someone? Nothing. I wouldn't. Simple as that. I wouldn't kill someone to save 50 other people, I wouldn't kill someone for money, for a car, for a mansion, for immortality.

Considering the fact that it could be anything, I could say any number a thing, and set any conditions I wanted. What happens when you take that first step? Say you'd kill someone to save some other people? To gain immortality? You decide that. thing is for sure, a dies.

This universe is vast, and it houses many a mind that are also, yes, quite vast. I would let the world continue on, as it is. The post, the topic you have questioned us all here, it calls forward human desire. What would you do for your own good in exchange for someone else's is essentially what this is asking.

I am not some justice-caller. I am not a king. I am myself, through and through. No matter how you know, you own, or you have seen, there is simple fact. You exist, and that is all that matters. You don't need immense knowledge, treasure, or morality to exist. You don't need to save a bunch of people by killing . You don't need to do anything. Just exist, as you always have. Be content with the way things are working. Let the events pass, and time flow forward. Keep things as they are. If everyone could kill an innocent and have any wish granted, there wouldn't be any innocents left.

Of course, that is all fine and well until we really ponder what innocent means. "Not guilty of a crime or offense." What if there were no laws? No morals? Innocent is purely based on perspective.

Besides that, as a great man (or perhaps a figment of another's imagination, it is debatable) once said: "He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature."

Just because you've lived an incredibly sheltered life full of emotional stability, and can't so much as empathize with feeling angry about being mistreated, doesn't mean that the rest of the world can't.

(You posed that as a question so I answered it as best I could).

Why does this sound like a gang initiation?

edit: but I'd say if i was in a kill or die situation, or someone offered me large amounts of money (assuming there is no repercussions)

Quite sure a shark eating my leg off means less harm than a baby cry.

Cannot kill an innocent person it goes against my religion. However the idiot that is trying to force me to kill someone is no longer innocent.

Ummm.... probably not. I get what you are saying....but, you are assuming babies are born knowing right from wrong. At the very least, a shark understands something dies so that it can live.... innocent as that is.

How naive. The shark eats to live. The baby cries to annoy me.
