I don't know how this came into my head. Anyways, in which of these circumstances would you kill or seriously hurt a person?

1- A person has gun on you and MIGHT kill you.

2- A person has a gun on everybody you love and will SURELY kill one of them.

3- A person is running away with all money you've earned in life.

4- You hear a terrorist planning to bomb a place. You know it'd be too late if you call the cops.

Now, in all the situation, you've a fair chance of killing/hurting the person without dying. What would you do?

Severely injure in every scenario. Possibly kill depending on whether things escalate.

When this person tries to kill/seriously hurt me.

When this person tries to kill/seriously a loved one or friend.

When this person tries to kill/seriously hurt an innocent.

I'm having a bad day and need to take it out on someone.

How is severely injure even an option? All of these seem to imply you have a gun and a few seconds to react. Even with training, no time limit, and a target standing perfectly still, it's insanely hard to hit someone in a way they won't probably die. If you're just some schmuck with a second to shoot someone, you're not gonna skim them until they surrender, you're gonna goddamn shoot them.

1: Kill.

2: Kill.

3: Injure & take my money back.

4: Severely injure & leave for the cops.

I'd severely injure someone whenever my life or the lives of those I care about are in danger. Kill if the threat can't be extinguished with non lethal force.

It's never o.k. It's just that sometimes you have no other options. That doesn't make it o.k, it just means you're choosing the lesser of two wrongs.

Severely injure to the point where they want to end their own lives for all situations.

That is a bit harsh....

Well in all the situations they're going to kill someone. With an exception of 3 (if it is a good reason, like save lives, than I'm okay with it).

Well you could save lives without killing them or making it so they want to kill themselves.

In a hypothetical situation where a person with the intent of killing innocents is confirmed (no blackmailing, framed, being forced to, etc.), they deserve it. Unless they have a chance of reforming (again, not sure since by hypothetical question situations, I assume they are hell-bent on killing. Say, someone like Joker).

Injure them so they can go to jail. Killing them would be the easy way out for them.

Kill or seriously injure for all. I'd do my best to not kill the dude, especially in the taking all my money situation.

Id say incapacitate them the best way you can and let the main focus be on actually saving the people as opposed to killing/torturing the kidnapper.

Id resort to killing them if there was no other choice in the situation.

Well I'm not going to kill/torture him right there. There could be kids. I agree with you, but I'm assuming the only way to save them is to kill the person, since the topic is when is it okay to kill them.

Would there be a need to torture them though?

Well the OP set up some of the situations in such a way where it seems there is no alternative for some of the scenarios.

As someone who has their concealed carry scene

  1. I'm going to shoot him
  2. I'm going to shoot him
  3. I'm not going to shoot him - I'd either chase him down, or call the cops.
  4. I'd warn people, but unless I was 100% sure it was going to happen, I'd ignore it.
