Or the more realistic scenario is that the average person walking down the street 1. doesn't carry a firearm on them, 2. aren't sharp shooters and it would be hard to hit a target that's running away and 3. odds are he kills you.
Plus, you're not taking into account the shock you'd feel by seeing someone murdered in front of you. We'll see how bad ass you really are when that happens and it dawns on you quickly that he could very well do the same to you and you only have a few seconds to make a choice. My choice would be saving myself and getting the fuck out of there because I like to live.
nah. to be honest what you're saying is downright cowardly. in fact, that's part of the problem today: cowardly citizens. a lot of times people see someone getting mugged/attacked and they just keep walking by, they don't even call for help. honestly, i wouldn't give a shit if the criminal wanted to kill me, that would actually work in my favor, cause then i could kill him and say it was self-defense. chances are i'd see him before he saw me, anyway. it's a little cowardly that you would run away from someone who needed help, just because you wanted to save yourself. what if it was someone you loved that got killed and the criminal ran away, and was never caught? i bet then you'd thank the citizen who shot the piece of shit. there is absolutely nothing wrong with killing criminals, and i am 100% positive that i could kill a criminal and not have it "weigh on my conscience". this has nothing to do with trying to be a "bad ass". this is about fighting back against crime, which all able-bodied citizens should do. we work hard for our money, and then some piece of trash wants to take it from us? fuck that, i'll kill any criminal scum that wants to hurt me, my family, or any innocent person.
op how often do you see someone killing someone else on the street just steal from them? pretty sure most people just point their gun at the person and force them to give them their shit and not shoot so they don't get charged for murder.
it happens A LOT more than you think. it really depends where you stay at. here in miami a lot of innocent people get killed for stupid shit. some crackhead needed money, so he robs someone down the street, but it gets out of hand, he panics, and shoots the person. he takes what little money the person has, and flees. sounds great, doesn't it?
a lot of times the mugger doesn't mean to kill the victim, but he does anyway. they shoot them or stab them once, but since they don't call for help for the person (obviously) the victim bleeds to death on the street, or wherever they got robbed at.
This is the most random thread and idea.
OP, how in the blue hell could that possible work?
(are you a killer?)
There is something called "innocent until proven guilty" which makes a lot of sense. There is no room for error when it come to life and death and killing someone!
You're saying you'd kill someone if you saw them kill someone else. Vigilante justice is all well and good but could you live with murdering an innocent man? or murder in general? It's fun to joke around and say you'd have to kill 'em and all that but i bet you're a complete pussy and would run home scared.
Capital punishment is the way forward in certain cases?
nah, i'm not a "bad ass" by any means but i am sure as hell not a coward, and i would never want to hurt anyone who didn't deserve it. maybe i take this issue a little personal, because a friend of mine who i knew for years got killed outside of his house and they never found the person that did it. either way, i see nothing wrong with killing criminals. and why would it traumatize me to kill some murdering trash, anyway? i'd be doing the world a favor. capital punishment is retarded, anyway. it costs more money to kill someone on a death sentence than it does to keep them in jail. why not just kill them then and there? i'm sure the jury would be in your favor if you're an honest citizen with a gun liscense, and there's sufficient evidence at the scene that the criminal you killed had murdered the victim.
