Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
No one is endorsing crime of any kind here and you just used this lie to avoid answering the question again.
Making "self defense" illegal is a conflict to retaining the greatest constitutional rights for the most people. It's not about numbers....our justice system is based on more than numbers. It's about providing justice for those in the right....just like our laws protecting minorities from discrimination and abuse. The idea of expecting someone to die before their attacker can be tried in court is insane.Originally Posted by Lursa
I'm going to type that again to let it sink it:
You're arguing that killing people saves lives.
Just because you see one as "the bad guy" doesn't mean that the justice system shouldn't provide due process. You're not and should not be the justice system. It's called a system for a reason.
"If the officer used lethal force, that's attacking." in a literal sence, absolutely, you are right. That's like saying the French police attacked the terrorists. In the eyes of the LAW, you are wrong. Legal lethal force is a necessary precaution, not an attack.
Lol, I'm enjoying this argument.
And you are arguing that if people can save themselves thru lethal force, they legally and morally may not and must allow themselves to be killed or raped.
Now....does that sound rational at all? Of course, you still refused to answer specifically if the cops and the daughter should indeed have allowed themselves to continue to be attacked until death/raped. Seems like moral quicksand since you cannot stand up and articulate it honestly.
At what point to we prioritize prevention of rape v access to due process?
