    Default Would you ever kill someone?

    I was recently watching Fox 5 News and came across the fact that people murder other people. I thought I should make you all aware.

    Yeah. It must be easy to set-up situations in which your child is being attacked by the particular person you'd like to kill.

    Uh, no. I think in a random circumstance where it was either him or me and life depended on it, then yes..obviously... but I could never sit and contemplate murdering someone...if people here do, please lock yourself up. Thanks.

    I actually think that some people function better when they take on murder as a recreational pastime. "Balances them out," so to speak. I think it's important that we let people do whatever keeps them sane.

    If it wasn't for the existence of God I would have killed so many people you would not believe the thoughts I have had. Really incredibly violent thoughts, so many different ways, the flesh horribly distorted...so many former people just lying there, dead.

    Does no one else find it questionable that most of the responses to the poll involve some variation of "yes, why not", while only one is a "probably not". There's no "No, never." or a "Only if I had to" or "To protect my loved ones"

    Almost anyone is capable of killing if pushed far enough or placed into the right situation. I wouldn't hesitate to shoot someone if I thought they meant me or my family harm.

    Anybody would. No matter what you think, it's batshit easy for anybody to be pushed into violence in the right situation/push the right buttons long enough.

    I you are in a war you are free to kill anyone (although he must be from the opposition) at your own wish, further more, you are actually motivated by your superiors to kill as many as possible. Next to this you will even get rewarded with lots of medals.

    If there is no war, then you get the death penalty when you try to kill a person who has sexually molested your own child.

    Isn't it ironic.

    shooting someone != killing someone

    or did you mean shooting with the intent to kill? in most situations i imagine you could shoot them to prevent them from doing harm without actually intending to kill them

    There is always the chance that a person who gets shot will die, even if you intend not to kill them.

    If my children were in danger, I'd do whatever it took. but I also know that violence would be the last thing to enter my mind. I used to have these dreams that I was being held against my will and I would always try to talk to the person and get them to trust me, to like me or whatever. I'd use psychological methods first. I think I would have a hard time actually killing someone, even if it was justified and even if it was to save another person. I just think there's something inside of me that would hold back. If it was very clear that something bad would definitely happen to my kids, I'd do it. I'd try to hurt them enough so that they couldn't hurt my kids. Maybe not try to kill them.

    true, i guess i'm getting intentions mixed up with the actual outcome

    but still, the question has to imply some intention to kill because otherwise no one could possibly answer no... because its always possible that you may cause an accident and someone may die as a result of that accident.

    I wouldn't go out looking to kill someone. If someone is attacking me I would avoid using lethal measures if possible but if lethal is the only way oh well.

    FOX 5 News is a different channel. It's the local FOX broadcast affiliate in NYC, not Fox News Channel. They do the 5 O Clock news like all affiliates elsewhere around the country - pretty much straight news, not too much bias, except a seeming bias towards only talking about who got raped, killed, etc like all other local news.

    probably not. i don't have a violent soul at all, but if killing someone meant euthanizing a brain dead person on life-support machines i think i could do it if required. but as far as murder for personal gain? no, probably not.

    Maybe a more interesting question would be: "Would you be able to kill someone outside self-defense?"

    sometimes i have trouble controlling my impulses and ive been driven far enough by emotion enough times in the past to behave in ways counter to my values. so under extreme circumstances i seriously doubt it would be any different when it comes to murder. i think its extremely unlikely that the motivation, opportunity, etc. would ever line up exactly right for it to happen. i would need to be under a degree of pressure like i've never experienced before.

    it probably feels like self defense a lot of the time even when it isnt.
    ie. this person is fucking my lover/going to get me fired/holding onto money that i need therefore ruining my life
    not RATIONAL obviously, but people have irrational thoughts and feelings all the time.
    i think maybe you have to be a psychopath or something to kill without feeling some kind of pressure to do so. and i don't think that's true for most people who have killed.
