They naturally selected crime as their modus operandi, and a bullet made their already-conceived offspring fatherless just like they themselves were growing up.

I guess I just find any loss of life to be a sad thing. I agree fully that the customer had no other choice and the kid brought it on himself. Of course he was in the wrong and placed a big red target on himself. Like I said, I would've done the same as the customer if it meant saving my life and the lives of the other people around. But that still doesn't make it any less real that a life was lost. Was the kid a hardened heartless criminal? Or was he just the result of a really messed up upbringing? In the moment of self-defense those questions don't matter and you do what you gotta do. But when I stop to think that this kid was only 19, it would make me wonder what led him to literally throw his life away.

Once a person makes the decision to commit violent acts against innocent people,they have NO moral value to me. Whenever a person is killed while commiting their violent crimes,they get exactly what they deserve

I'll buy that.

gun contro working as intended. how exactly is it that a 19 year old man get a hold of a handgun when its illegal for anyone less than 21 to posess one without consent of a parent or guardian. just another example of why all gun control needs to be repealed.

but im sure he was just using the robbery as a means of turning his life around

See you lose me when you say someone has no value. Life is life, no matter whose life is lost. If a criminal places me at the crossroads of choosing between my life and theirs, well then I'm going to choose to save my life. But that doesn't mean I want to kill someone. I simply want to not be killed.

Difference of opinion or difference of perspective I guess. Everyone is free to see it as they wish. Just sharing one more viewpoint.

I respect your opinion and the way that you think about people. I have dealt with the criminal element for a little over a decade. I have sat and talked to hundreds of inmates about their crimes while i worked in the prison. Alot of them show no remorse for what they have done to their victims, and some would say that they did but if they discharged you would soon see their face on the 10 o'clock for robbing or killing someone else. I have worked on the streets and worked the crime scenes,and ive seen the pain in the victims eyes while i helped clean up the mess left behind. Ive had to tell the parents that their sons or daughters had been killed, and ive seen children placed into DHS custody because domestic violence ended in bloodshed.

I think the way i do because......... I do

I understand where you are coming from. It is sad that someone had to die. But, at least it was the right someone. I hope I never have to take a life. But if put in that position, I would have done the same thing.

I am a Christian. I feel that anyone can ask for forgivness. Some people just choose not to...or they wait too long.
