But I don't think we should just resign to shooting folks that demonstrated the potential to kill others. I know it's naively idealistic, but killing another human should be avoided at all cost.
No offense taken, I just didn't want you thinking I saw the guy as an animal because of what happened.
To your other comment I'd simply say Dorner didn't just demonstrate the potential to kill, he demonstrated a willingness. Obviously any time a shootout happens and people don't walk away it's not the ideal outcome, but if it comes to a choice between law enforcement and suspect (the way Dorner made it with his actions)? I can't fault the law enforcement for taking extreme measures (meaning killing a person).
Yeah I think I'm just lamenting the fact that humans have to die in general. Life, ya know?
Anyways, I discovered the hard way today that we don't have a plunger at my place.
