I think it has more to do with the situation.

If a person commits murder for fun this is where either committed for life or the death penalty is justifiable depending on how many people were killed. If a person only killed once there'd be a chance he'd eventually learn the error of his ways. If we're talking serial killer of children or such I believe the death penalty is justified.

If a person kills for money life imprisonment with no parole is justified.

And if a person breaks into my house I will NOT take the time to wait and see if he plans to kill my family and myself before shooting/killing him. It's totally asinine to assume someone breaking into your house while you're there isn't there to do you any harm.He who hesitates and fails could not only cost himself his life but that of his family/friends and that of whoever's house the thief decides to break into next.

Mate unless you're American, Russian, Turkish, or from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, or Turkey your country has very little to do with anything going on with Syria.

And if your a Yank ya ending the regime of a man who targets schools and hospitals , President Bashar al-Assad doesn't deserve to keep breathing one minute longer nor do all the brainwashed fools that support him, including Russia . And even at that the Yanks have a very minimal military presence in the area compared to the second Gulf War.

Honestly I wish Canada would get involved in this war alongside more American deployments . We could wipe the floor with the illiterate tribal forces buying into Assad's lies. But people like you are preventing that.

Not really removing people just because they broke into your house to steal so they can survive is just as wrong.
Now if they were attacking you and trying to murder you then sure fire away kill them they deserve it.

His point is ridiculous if the person is just a thief but has merit if the person is trying to kill him.

I have had my house broken into multiple times not once would i have ever killed the fucker that wouldn't be the good way to go about it.



Promise me mate you'll never join the armed forces of your country. There is no such thing as a thief with merit, he or she is scum who will likely do whatever is necessary to get away scot free.

And eye for eye, a tooth for a tooth mate. It's one of the few things both atheists and theists can agree on.

There is no such thing as a thief with merit, he or she is scum who will likely do whatever is necessary to get away scot free. And all your drug fuelled fantasies aren't going to change that.

Don't plan to I'm not deluded enough to kill innocents who don't plan on killing others.

A thief is scum but that doesn't warrant death.
Even thieves have morals if that was not true I would be dead by now.

Unless someone has the intention to kill at most they should be apprehended if they show the slightest intention grabbing for a weapon then by all means kill them.

I'm not a fool who deludes himself fulfilling fake justice who kills without thought or reason and I take orders from nobody for those reasons I would never join any army let alone my shitty countries army.

soldiers kill bad people but a true soldier would never kill someone who isn't a threat.
Any soldier that kills an unarmed man civilian or robber is no worse then the people he kills at the end of his guns barrel.

I can't and won't respect anyone like that.

I have been robbed whilst I was at home once even whilst I was a baby the robber could of killed me to get away without me screaming but they didn't.

Most robberies where I am occur with the robber having no weapons and no intention to fight if they see a person with a gun they will flee.
Now if they don't flee then they have an intention to fight and then well that's when they lose the right to live.

Killing an unarmed intruder whilst legal is still a shitty thing to do and I won't have respect for it.
You asked me opinion I gave it :)

eye for an eye indeed so when a robber takes a tooth don't go and take his skull that puts you below him

He had a point though, you just have a self righteous viewpoint that has no basis in either reality or experience. When you gain a grasp on both maybe I'll respect your useless pacifistic viewpoint mate.

How do you know they did it just to survive? There are many people that read obituaries so they can find that persons house and loot it before anyone can remove the valuables. What if that person breaking in is high and wants more drug money not food? How do you know they aren't there to murder you Mr mind reader? Us normal non psychics don't have the luxury of foresight and if we wait we or our family might die.

Good job by allowing that thief victory you have further encouraged him to take greater risks and put more people at risk. I've read many stories where thieves started stealing from stores, then cars, then houses, then raping people in houses, then killed someone when something ddnt go as expected. They were in it for the rush and the excitement not because they needed anything.

Waiting for someone who has broken into your home to reach for their weapon will get you killed. When someone breaks into your home, it is no different then putting a knife to your throat. Breaking into someones home is a violation of their personal space and a threat to their safety.

Edit:
Also, I don't think you understand how dangerous and deadly an unarmed person can be, even someone not trained in martial arts. A person with a gun could have the disadvantage against an unarmed person when there is less than 10 feet between them. This is especially the case when the person with the gun is reluctant to shoot because the other person is unarmed.

On topic, I think a person who kills because they can is despicable. I don't fear them, because I won't in all likelihood encounter them, or at least not while they are killing. I don't care what someone does with their time, unless it is something that harms others.

You never mentioned what we were killing. If it were animals, I do it a lot. If it's people, then my opinion is that those people deserve execution, unless it was strictly self defense.

You break into my house there is a good chance you going to get shot!

Here is something I found~ California has fairly strong castle doctrine laws.

Homicide is also justifiable when committed by any person in any of the following cases: 1. When resisting any attempt to murder any person, or to commit a felony, or to do some great bodily injury upon any person; or, 2. When committed in defense of habitation, property, or person, against one who manifestly intends or endeavors, by violence or surprise, to commit a felony, or against one who manifestly intends and endeavors, in a violent, riotous or tumultuous manner, to enter the habitation of another for the purpose of offering violence to any person therein; or, 3. When committed in the lawful defense of such person, or of a wife or husband, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant of such person, when there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony or to do some great bodily injury, and imminent danger of such design being accomplished; but such person, or the person in whose behalf the defense was made, if he was the assailant or engaged in mutual combat, must really and in good faith have endeavored to decline any further struggle before the homicide was committed; or, 4. When necessarily committed in attempting, by lawful ways and means, to apprehend any person for any felony committed, or in lawfully suppressing any riot, or in lawfully keeping and preserving the peace.

You break into my family's home without expressed permission and I don't know who you are, I think I deserve the right to shoot first and ask questions later.

Life is precious and no one has the right to take it from you, I don't think murderers are even human to begin with.

that's too complicated an issue to broadly apply "killing is wrong, no matter what" in regards to killing ISIS members. i respect your opinion though and agree, but the world we live in sadly doesn't allow us that choice most of the time.
