ok..let's ask a strange question..do you have the courage to kill someone?!..could you dare really to doing such awful crime?! i don't think that there is on earth someone who could think that to kill someone is a solution to any problem..i can't even imagine how someone can make another lose his soul whatever he did to him..yet i am hearing people killing each others everyday and what is most amazing that you can hear that someone killed his mother or father for just take thier money!! have the world reached this level really?!! killing became normal as if you are erasing something...WoooooooW.. so my question to you can you kill someone for any reason?! also have you ever killed any one before even if you did it by mistake and you didn't meant it?! what is your feelings then?..are you dreaming by him in your sleep?..do you feel guilty?!

well I am not just going to go out and murder someone if that is what you mean, but under the right circumstances, I would say yes...I hope I am never put into a situation where I need to, and I would hate that it happened, but some things are worth killing for.

An example of something worth killing for, okay here you go, I got two, but I am going to make them kind of one. Someone is trying to kill you or someone you love. I do not mean that you suspect that someone is conspiring against you, or even if you've proven it and taking preemptive action. Preemptive action is never good. But what I am talking about is say for example they come to your home armed with some sort of weapon or something and are trying to kill you or a child or spouse or something. I in that case would kill them in self defense, to protect myself and my family, even if it meant prison time, though if it was proven self defense, it would at least be reduced.

If somebody did kill somebody here. Nobody would admit it for sure. They wouldn't want to go to jail. Admitting it here is hard evidence. I probably killed someone... in my dreams. LOL.

As far as I don't think I'm capable of trying to kill myself, I don't think I am also not capable of killing others. I must admit, It had crossed my mind, though. A lot of times. There are always a number of people who would get the best out of me and irritate me, and I would gladly give myself the option to do that--if i had the courage, which i certainly lack. My mind plays up the ideas, but I can't act them out. Don't think I'm a psycho, I don't think of gruesome things. Mostly it's about them leaving my life, me fighting back, me defending others, ect. It's the things that I can't really do in reality.

if only that peaceful world could be real, then there would be no dispute and harm. If only everyone respected each other.

i would have to have a good reason to kill some one and i think i could.. it would mess me up mentally forever but if it was to like protect myself or extreme circumstances i could do it.. i would never kill just for the fun of it or anything

I dont think that I could ever kill someone. I dont see how people do it. The only way that I could kill someone is if they were trying to hurt me or my children.

i hope no one hurt you or your children then ;)

You hope nobody hurts her or her children then? Meaning that you wouldn't care if they weren't willing to kill to protect them? Well, I hope nobody hurts them anyway.

if only I have the courage to kill, I think I already kill lots of people!, those who are parasites, and those people that world doesn't need. but of course, it's a sin.. so I don't want to commit such crimes.

I wouldn't want to, but if someone is threatening me or my loved ones, then all bets are off. For example, if someone wants to hurt my children, they are going to have to get through me first, and you can bet I won't make it easy for them. It's kill or be killed, survival first. I understand what you are saying about how everyday people lose their lives and most of it is completely senseless killing. I would never harm anyone I didn't have to. I would never take a human life if it was completely necessary. But I'm not going to stand by and let someone one hurt the ones I love.

...when was it ever not normal that there are people killing eachother everyday? ACTUALLY, considering other periods of history, all that's going on today is pretty tame in comparison. Could I ever kill someone? Yes. Would I like to go out and commit murders? No. Do I think killing people is the solution to mundane problems like disagreements or money? Nope. If it came down to it, if someone was trying to kill me or my family...I really wouldn't hesitate, knowing it'd be the only way to survive. Would it probably leave me a bit messed up? Likely, yes.

Very strange question. No I am not killed anybody and Big no for ever. Yes we can blame those who killed their Mom, Dad, Grand parents for Money. But now teens want instant money for their fast life. so may they chosen such. But how we can judge as well we are not GOD. Now a days every day there are a lot of killings on News papers. Always getting shocked with such messages. And I am really appreciating their foolishness. Beacuse Killing somebody spoiled killer's own life. Moreover society always looks at him as an murderer. Or may be such an unavoidable reason which forced them to kill that particular person. Rest all upto that person.

I don't think so. No matter how much I hate this one, I won't kill him/her because it's quite stupid for me to make such kind of a big crime. It isn't worth. If he/she is a bad person, finally he/she will deserve a punishment. I love China

If my family were ever in danger, and there was no other way, yes, I could kill someone. I could noy just kill to kill. The circumstances would have to be extreme. I do not agree with murder, but at the same time, I would protect my family and end a life if it were the only way to save them.

I believe that everyone has the courage to at least attempt to take a life. It's just a matter of pushing each individual beyond their point of reason.

No I never ever want to kill anyone. I would never eat meat, if I had to kill the animal myself. Guess, I'm not the killer type.

I do'n;t have enough guts to kill someone for just a simple reason or problem. I don't want to put dirt on my hands and dignity as a person. BUT If he is worth to kill, I would.

Ha! Killing someone is the last thing that i would ever do. Killing is a mortal sin and God stated it in his 10 Commandments. How could you get the life that God gave to somebody? All of us have no right to just say that you have to diee no matter how bad that person is. I Didn't think of killing someone. Just to think that i hurt someone would make me feel awful. I couldn't even kill an insect so how could i kill a human being.

ohh...i could kill an insect!..LoooL! it is something awful for sure if you only thought to kil someone..so what if someone did!
