OscarB63 made the following comment in jest, and it got me wondering.
Kill Zimmermam NOW or there will be riots.
If a person's death would prevent riots that would result in many more deaths and property damage; Should the Government have the power to take this life?
Yes, only if loss of life is imminent.
Yes, to prevent both property damage and loss of life.
No. The Government should kill the rioters.
