1st round acceptance, second round opening arguments without countering any points made in the others argument. 3rd-5th round defend your position and advance on the opponents.

I do not believe it it ever OK to kill someone under any circumstances for the following reasons:
1: if you believe in heaven and hell, then why would you ever want to grant another person, no matter how bad the deed they committed, an early trip to possible eternity in hell before finishing their full life on earth? If you don't, then why cut short the only time a person will ever experience life?

2: No matter what the cause of you killing someone was, there will be that death that haunts you and your image for the rest of your life.

3: Even if you are defending yourself in a lethal fight with another person, a lethal strike to them is never neccesary; You can adjust the strike to make it a crippling blow instead of a lethal hit, and if that doesn't work and the person still dies, it would not have been due to your intentional killing of him.

4: If you are in a battle during a large war, even though it is chaotic and your first instinct is to point and shoot at the head, like your officers taught you. But you have to think. That person you just shot and killed was most likely just a young man in his twenties who was taken from his wife and kids by the government to fight, and now he is dead because of you.

I believe this covers most instances in which someone may find it acceptable to kill someone, and I await your opening argument.

Killing another human, who is in the act of killing an innocent human, with the malicious intent to kill, is not only necessary, but a civil responsibility. If the altercation is possibly diffused with-ought the use of lethal force, that course of action could be considered. However, in most cases where the use of deadly force is already part of the scenario, it will be the use of deadly y force to counter the assailant and save the innocent victim.

Reasons for voting decision: The example of protecting the life of an innocent is obvious and Pro didn't respond for three successive rounds. Was this a real debate? Forfeits offset conduct.
