    You like killing, I get it. You like killing helpless, caged people. I'm sure it makes you feel so strong.

    Who am I to change that?

    It's lowering yourself to their level. I guess, for some people, that feels good.

    Dumb question. for starters, most people aren't psychopaths who rape and murder others. That alone makes "us" better.

    That's how evil spreads. Such is life.. the family of the sickos responsible for many of these terrible crimes are not the priority.

    You are so wrong in your assumptions that it is hard for me to fathom. This has nothing to do with liking killing. It has everything to do with justice being served. Justice is not emotional. It is perfectly sober, and it is not biased. Justice is met when the scales are balanced. This cannot be that difficult for you to understand. Certainly.

    Justice is not served by killing helpless harmless captives. Such a sense of justice is depraved. Justice is served when society rises above and validates its existence.

    You must be trolling. No way are you serious.

    Enlightened individuals understand vengeance (based on emotion) has no place in a justice system. There is no point to killing a caged person.

    That may be so but caged people do kill even after being caged.
