Anything is justifiable depending on your opinion.

I actually think murder is just fine, we are animals to begin with.

By definition: Murder can not be justified by law.
Murder requires an unlawful killing. Therefore; A [LEGALLY JUSTIFIED MURDER] is an paradox.

Therefore: killing via war, execution, self defense, etc. is NOT "murder."

However, I believe murder is justifiable.
1. Catastrophic failure of government / criminal justice system:

For example, the integrity of the criminal justice system is seriously undermined. It's laws no long represent the will of the people. / Serious corruption. Or serious corruption / budget problems prevent it from functioning.
------ The criminal justice system passes laws such as - all persons of a particular race are to be summarily executed. At this point, murder is justified in order to prevent the criminal justice system from carrying out such atrocities. (If the will of the people is against such atrocities)

Well if it is in self-defense. I'd also understand if someone murdered a rapist or pedophile who molested them or a close family member. I'd also understand if the person killed was a serial killer and you caught them in the act of trying to kill their next victim and you took your chance to save that person by killing the killer. Otherwise murder isn't justified. And Im a pacifist and believe that war doesn't solve anything, it just begets more problems and brings about even more enemies. . .its a never ending cycle. . .

If it is justified, then it isn't "murder."

Yes, there are plenty of occasions when killing is necessary.

killing in a war zone is technically self defense since they are attempting to kill you as well.

Sure It's justified it's all just human nature, I mean you never tell animals to stop killing other animals it's just who they are. People kill all the time, we just shrug it off.

it's not justified, now on self defense is when there is when your life is on the line so I find that acceptable. But that doesn't means if you were threatened, that you can go out and hunt the person, that would be classified as murder. Only when the individual is attacked as has no way out, and even then you can just knock them out and not go all the way to killing. And now for those who are saying that we are animals therefore we are allowed to do it, wrong, we are not murdering to have a meal or to be alive the next day, which is why animals kill...not murder. murder has an intent to it, the killing in the animal world is more out of instinct than an actual attempt to kill something, plus they are killing other species for the most part not their own like us.

I think it's pretty obvious, most of the good guys kill the bad guys in the shows all the time. No one called Goku a murderer and he kills like everything.

A lot of you don't know what it's like to be in a bad situation. You think to yourselves that you should just shoot them in the leg when he breaks into your house. You probably don't know that you will be so afraid for your life you can't even hold the gun steady. The second you miss shooting his leg you will probably be dead. This man is invading your house and he is prepared for anything that happens, you are not. I don't care if he wants to steal any money or whatever he happens to want. If he didn't want to die he wouldn't be in someone Else's house in the first place.

His killings of criminal is pretty justifiable to me.

So yes, murder is justifiable under different circumstances.

Yep. They call it a war or a crusade.
