I was convinced that this is impossible. But in samr time i think that exist circumstances in life when every kind of people can make this. Just imagine that somebody enter in your house and want hurt your kids or wife or husband. If you don t have any option, you will kill to protect they? If somebody attack you and want kill you...you will let him kill you? Can be situation when even somebody is very disapointed and jealous can kill. what do you think? Are situations when all of us can kill somebody?if don t have other option?

I think you are serious in this discussion. I was about to throw a joke but.. I can only kill somebody accidently. I am not a fight lover person so, even if someone is going to attack me, i would like to save myself rather than attacking him/her. So, if by pushing him to the wall or window or even to a kniefe, that person gets killed, it doesn't mean that I killed him, is it?

You are 100% right, even law says that if a person gets killed by someone who is defending him/herself, then it is not a crime!

Firstly I would like to start by saying that you pose a very good discussion. I know personally that if it were a matter of defense, I would kill someone. I also know that if someone ever hurt my family, I would probably be more than willing to inflict some type of retribution. I think that there are a lot of situations in which people find themselves in a position to make this decision. I know that there are cases where jealousy causes someone to make a rash decision, but that is not something that I would ever be capable of, like I said it would have to be a matter of defense for me. I think that the only thing that separates us from animals is our ability for compassion and our ability to resolve things peacefully. I would like to say that I believe this is always the case but as we all know, that isn't true. There are murders every day and I believe that the people capable of such acts are not better than animals. I hope that my answer is what you were looking for and I look forward to reading more of your discussions.

If my discussion is good, your answer is very good too. I got your point, yes..in situation when we want "punish"somebody, for sure that i can t kill, but never say never, i talk about jealousy...we are rational minds, but are situations, when we can say "never"only when we are in that situation. About self defense or protect who we love, i am sure that this circumstances make us to find so much power and energy inside, and we can make disperate gesture.

I can't really kill anyone. I don't even kill the mosquito that bites me. But the case you mentioned, seems to lure us to take some really violence action that is difficult to imagine for me. I don't know, I think I will do two things. I would try to hit the enemy in such place that would hurt him, but not kill. As far as possible, take some defending actions just enough to save ourselves. The second thing I do is shout for the help. In case of man, you know the position lol...

hehe!!! very true icesmile...Our mind doesn't really work in that situation like we talk here like I will do this and that. Things like that can become unexpected and also our reaction can also be unexpected one that we can't talk them here imagining...We don't know our actual strength unless it becomes really necessary... Thanks for responding back...May such things never happen to anyone in the life, never ever....

Absolutely not! I have trouble killing bugs. I prefer to "escort" them outside. Life is precious, and I could never end one.

Unfortunately, I was once in that situation. I couldn't hurt the person, let alone kill him. I really would die before I'd inflict pain or end the life of another person. It's just my way.

I think, the sentance is nt right, it contain the vague conception. when we reply this question, we should get clear who are you asking for. If the question asked in a general condition, it should add a premise. such as: without thinking, have ability(physical) to do it, or something else. Generally, not everyone have the physical ability to kill others especially others have the talent or martial art or other kinds of striking skills. maybe in some confition, you can, but not in evry condition. So, I am doubtful for the question been asked.

is a simple question if i or you or a normal, polite and nice people can kill somebody who want kill us or somebody who we love..kids..if in a special circumstances, to defend our self we can kill....and i think that i can kill somebody if want kill somebody who i love or want kill me. Instinct will make me to kill.

everybody yearn for peace,security and to living and working in peace and contentment,but that's an ideal dream.It still exist a lot of violence and sth disappointed u.For me,none but some extreme cases can impulse me into kill sb,and it's just for self-preservation.only if my life and my relatives or friends' life are under intimidate,I would kill the one who do harm to me or my relatives.

I believe that every one would not want to resolve it to violence. but also it's true that when you are in that complete current situation, you will have no choice and kill that person out of fear, to protect yourself from that criminal and offender. and they would strongly say that it's only for self defense.can't blame it happens all the time and you can't seemingly negotiate with a person who is about to kill you .

If somebody came into my house and tried to attack me or any of my family members, that person will certanly have to die. But I just would not kill, I would probably beat them up first. Then maybe kill if need be. Other then that I dont think I would kill someone. Certainly not when dissapionted or Jealous. Yeh but there are many reasons in this world to kill.

Yes of course, I can kill anybody if my near and dear ones of myself, is attacked by somebody. Attack for self-defence is granted legal status under law and many a murderer have actually been acquitted because it was proved that they attacked in self-defense.

At this moment I can say I'd never be able to take someone's life but realistically if someone was threatening the lives of certain ones in my family, there's nothing that would stop me. I'd just have to pray that God would understand and forgive me. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I might be hoping for some people to die miserably because they have hurt me, but I don't think I can kill anyone with my own hands, because I'm scared with bloods. But under a situation when someone try to attack my family physically, then yes, I think I can :) I hope not, but I would if I have to :)

whats the difference between killers and you??? you both have same hands and feet. you both can walk and run, you both eat food and drink water, you both have a meaning in life. what matters most is their reason for killing, i can kill someone for self defense or to defend someone i love. i can torture someone to confess to a crime to prove my innocence. even your own mother would kill someone to protect you.

We are all humans whether we are nice, bad or very bad, we have to accept that. I believe we have to defend our family from strangers and if the other party gets killed in this instance, its an incident...

I do not think that i could kill some one, but i do not know how i would react if someone cam into my house, and tried to harm me or one of my children. I have never been in that kind of situation but i know that i would do what ever it took to protect us from danger.

I don't really think it is in me. The only way I could see doing that is if someone was about to kill me, or if they were about to kill someone I loved. I think I would seek to injure them in such a way that they would stop their murderous behavior but if the only way to get them to stop would be to kill them, then I guess I would do what I had to do. I would never want to do that, but I would not stand by and do nothing if someone was killing someone I love or they intended to kill me. I would have to defend myself.
