  • In some cases, it can be.

    Even though killing is a bad thing, there may be some cases where it is the only way to survive. What if your friend was about to be killed by a man with a gun, and you yourself have a gun. What would you do? Would just stand there and watch your friend die or shoot the person who is about to kill your friend.

  • Yes .... Some people need to die!

    Sometimes people do such horrific acts that the scales can never be balanced. Serial killers / sex offenders why do we keep these people alive at a cost to the tax payer. If someone does something so horrible to you or your family I think you would be justified in taking the ultimate sanction.

  • There are people that do deserve to die

    I do believe that they are people that deserve to die.

    The world is filled wth monsters, serial killers and people that have no respect for you life.

    If i had a child, I don't care what you will say, but if someone killed my kid i wouln't have a clear conscience as long as he lives. ( Im talking about a murder, not an accident ).

    Don't talk about God and the ''Thou shalt not kill'' commandement because it means the in the end, the wicked get what they deserve (Hell ).

    But the thruth is that we don't know. We don't know if Hell and Heaven are real and I am not gonna just stay there because the guy might get punished in some supposed afterlife . Before thinking about Man the son of God, I think about man the animal. You kill a person's child? Get ready for the consequences.

    ''Oh, but killing him is wrong!, Put him in prison''.
    Yeah, and when he kill another after he has done his time what are we gonna do ?

    The real question is not whether or not kill is sometimes justified. The real question is, are you willing to do this ?

    Even if you know the man has done unspeakables things and will continue to do so, killing a person is not easy.

    And even if you are willing, are you ready to face the consenquences? That person might kill you or you might go to prison, is it worth your life ?

    It sucks big time, but we live in a world where innocent people are always attacked and we are told that it is wrong to get rid of it.

    Sorry if you don't agree but life is too short to endure people like that.
    There are things to have to be done.

  • Yes, murdering is justifiable.

    I agree to this statement because the police always shoots the person that seems to be killing other people or causing a threat to the police. Murder is justifiable when you are doing it for saving people, not when you are planning to kill someone innocent. If someone did horrible to your family, you would most likely want to get that person back for what they did. Osama bin Laden, is a terrorist that caused 9/11. If we had eliminated him we wouldn't have over 2000 people dead. We also wouldn’t have the Twin Towers destroyed.

  • Legally Yes. Morally?

    Yes.
    In a car accident you can cause the death of another, inadvertently killing them.
    Battered person syndrome- a legal defence
    Abortion- depending on how many weeks into the pregnancy, it is killing, but justified.

    But self defence needs to be clearly defined, for some understandings of self defence are not justifiable.

  • It can be justified.

    In the case of self-defense, killing is then justified. (Norma in Bates Motel could have had a justified reasoning for killing Keith Summers, but she chose to not tell anyone about the raping, and she stabbed him multiple times, making it look more like murder than self-defense...) I don't know what I'm saying...

  • In Defense, Killing is Justified

    While it is clearly wrong (and illegal) to kill without provocation, there are situations where the use of lethal force is okay, and where not using lethal force can be considered unacceptable. If you have a firearm in your home for self defense and you wake up to find someone aiming a gun at you or someone you love, it is acceptable to kill them (although it may be practical to wait until they are distracted so they don't kill their target anyway). It would still be okay if the other person wasn't pointing a gun, but instead beating them physically and severely. So, killing can also be acceptable against non-lethal threats, but only if it is to prevent severe bodily harm (like torture or rape).

    TL, DR: Killing is acceptable if it is in defense of you or another, if it prevents you or the other person from being the recipient of severe bodily harm.

  • Only for self-defense

    Killing is wrong, killing is one of the sins specifically forbidden by God in the Ten Commandments. I believe the only exception is defending yourself and your family. If someone attacks my home, I will fight back; if the only way to keep my family out of danger is killing the attacker, then that's what I'll do.

  • It would not be killing someone

    If it was justifiable I wouldn't call it killing someone because if you did do it you obviously had no other choice.For nstance self defence or if I had an ultimate and there was no other way out. When you say justifiable there are different parts to what justifiable is.

  • It's sometimes is.

    I think killing is SOMETIMES just, because of self defense, defense of family and friends, and in the law of karma, by "in the law of karma" I mean if someone is a horrible person and they really REALLY deserve it. But killing, and war, or even hunting, in my opinion is not just. But, that's jut my opinion. I'm a pacifist, so it's not just to me in MOST cases, but in a few, very few cases it is just.

  • Killing should never be justified.

    In certain circumstances people will argue that killing is justifiable due to self defense, revenge, punishment or even banishing someone "Evil" from the world. We will never evolve into something great if killing is our first option for everything. Killing is becoming more socially justifiable with terrorism, wars, attacks and so on; but how will future generations ever progress onto something positive from something so negative being fully justifiable? You can never justify the fact that you are a good person for killing a bad person.

  • Killing cant be justified

    People can argue that you can kill in self defense, but even then how are you any better than the person tying to kill you. Technically you tried to kill a person, and you did, what more is there to say. No one should take another persons life. If you could kill a person in self defense then everyone would go around killing, because they looked at you in a threatening way

  • Killing is not justice

    Only the weak resort to killing. The people who solve conflict without ending another life are the true bringers of peace and love. I understand the war and self defense argument, but due to our technological advancement, we have weapons that takeout people without killing them. That is true justice.

  • Killing is wrong

    Killing the person that killed someone you love won't bring them back. It's no better than what they did to the person you lost. We teach kids that its not right to kill. So why turn around and say that "it's okay if..." the person does this or that. That's still killing no matter what and it's wrong.

  • God said, no Commands so.

    Honestly, that is the only thing that I can say in disagreement. Killing seems very justifiable from a certain point of view, then again it's a sin. I would agree to not kill under any circumstance for fear of judgment. Our heavenly father Commands that we not take the life of another. The Bible, however, states that our Lord is very forgiving and loving so it comes down to, do you disobey and sin to save yourself or another, or do you simply ;let it happen? Well, to simply let it happen is kind of the same thing as doing it yourself, which is also forbidden. I would suggest a compromise that usually works, diplomacy. An attempt to talk through the event I think is way better than just ending it for good. If talking it out isn't working than try with every ounce of your own will to apprehend the threat. If your the problem, that is quite a different situation. Firstly, why would you be the threat? If you can answer that, you could indeed figure out a way out other than killing. Kind of like a back track to a time that you once were at and that you can remember.

  • Because violence is never the answer

    Killing somebody, in any kind of situation is never justified. Even if that persons is from the 'enemy' and fights killing people never gives an sollution or hope for peace. What it does is upsetting people and causing more people to die or murder other people. Diplomacy and helping those people is the only sollution.

  • Is all a domino effect:

    The first thing for me to say is that no one should not take another person's live. Like the title says this is like a domino effect. If a person doesn't thread a another, that person doesn't get killed. People needs to deal with their actions and learn how to control themselves. If the human being can learn how to live in harmony no weapons would be used in humans, it will only be used for hunting. But this is not that type of world. So we have to live with the killing and hating that is around us. My best advice is that your friends can be your worst enemy. I just get to see a case like that this week

  • Taking someone's life is never justified.

    It's not our decision to make to end someone's life. There has to be a way to try and rehabilitate or help. Killing makes us killers, which isn't any better than what some people are against.
    Today's shooting ended up in a death, it doesn't matter anymore if she "deserved" it. Who can say you were right? You will always be wrong, you can't be proved right, she's not alive anymore to be judged.
