Look Im not saying "dont kill guise"
Im saying "china doesnt care about you being a human being, we do, and that's why we in the west dont kill as fucking readily as the chinese do"

Like Im trying to make a horrendously complicated idea as simple as I can, which I cant cause I dont fully understand it myself, but it's like you WANT to miss the point

No mention of NOT taking action
No mention of Thou Shalt Not Cap A Bitch

This isn't about the specific case you can stop bringing it up its relevance has long since run dry

The American guy in Ferguson would never have attacked a cop in china
If he was chinese he could well have attacked a cop, considering that the chinese do seem to still have those types of violent criminals

Another fascinating feature of human complexity, not all criminals are afraid to die

See all Im getting out of this so far is that, if you dont kill all the criminals, youre coddling them
What western society does isn't coddling, it's simply not gunning them down immediately
Afterall, there is still a fair number of violent and dangerous criminals killed by law enforcement in the west, like that's a thing that still happens, so we know it's an approach we're still willing to take

We're just not as ready to jump the gun, so to speak, as quickly

I think you have a flawed misunderstanding of criminal behaviour, because on paper it makes sense that criminals only gonna crime cause they think they can get away with it, but then comes that ol' bean of human complexity ruining simple shit like that yet again

If you can tell me, with absolute certainty, why someone does a thing, there's a very high chance you're wrong, and the real reason they did the thing has some tragic bullshit story behind it, or that person was severely fucked up in a different way than you described

basically Im telling you that you don't know people as well as you talk like you do, because almost nobody knows anybody that well
#129 - Lookinatstuff (7 hours ago) [-]
But you've made my point.
We don't know people that well.

So, when there is an innocent life involved, and if it is felt that the innocent life is threatened, we must take action - and if that action requires immobilizing the criminal, then that action must be taken.
We can't assume that the guy holding a child out a window is just a poor misunderstood soul for which a few kind words will change his life and put him on the path of goodness. We must assume that he is capable of killing the child, and so if it appears that might happen, he must be stopped, quickly and effectively.

Yeah that's the problem with human complexity

There are practically no absolutes
Not a thing that crops up very often if ever

It's not about it being 'good enough' either
That concept is basically irrelevant
It just is what it is
It's a thing that is as a consequence of the human being... being what it is

It's not about the rights of the criminal either, youre getting too bogged down in this and that, specific scenarios specific details
Im over here talking about the value of human life and human complexity driving actions to all manner of extremes and taking at the very least a second thought before callously nodding my approval at an execution and smugly smirking at the corpse

This isn't some "killing is bad m'kaay?" speech, this is "that was a human being who had thoughts and feelings and probably a life goal and loved ones"
And that doesnt stop being true just because hes an asshole one day who made a series of seriously fucked up decisions and got himself killed

if it's necessary to kill the guy, sure, ok
but I for one don't wanna shrug it off like all of a sudden he wasn't a person anymore

like that's my beef with china
people are more than just meat for the grinder, even bad people

I agree that is not a time for celebration when a life is taken, it is a tragedy, regardless.
We also don't know the story behind the few pictures we saw. Surely what we saw didn't all happen in one minute.
The (albeit crude) point of the post is that Western society is too coddling of criminal activity. Of course, the criminals know this, so they are more willing to act out knowing there will not be consequences.
The guy in Ferguson would never have attacked a cop if he was in China, because there he would know he would not live to talk about it. Here, he thinks he can get away with it, and when the cop rightly protects himself and the criminal unfortunately is killed, instead of consoling the cop who was wrongly put into a terrible position, and had to do what will stay with him the reat of his life, we brand him as a racist and a murderer.

well no
for one it's never 'all well and good'

it just is
as an amoral factor, it simply is what it is

when I say I put stock in it I mean that I take it into account, that I make sure to specifically do so

and the whole "do x and you y" doesnt really help that
that's why the complexity is a factor, because a person's actions aren't black and white

It's hard to explain and I've no real reason to believe you're gonna give a fuck either way but typically, you don't take someone hostage and make demands with the intent to kill, you're generally hoping you get what you want and so avoid doing the killing

And you don't typically do it out of boredom or bloodlust, there's usually very compelling (not agreeable, not justified, not right, not good, but compelling, understandable, maybe even relatable) reasons for someone taking that series of actions, making the decision to do something like that

people are complicated
almost noone wakes up one day and thinks "Im gonna threaten a child for a new sports car, that sounds like a fun activity for today"

Like, I don't care that you're cavalier about human beings and their lives, but I'm not really interested in hearing "YEAHBUT THEY DID THE THING SO, POP POP MOFUCKA GOTTA DROP"
#116 - Lookinatstuff (7 hours ago) [-]
The problem with your argument is that you (correctly) cannot use absolutes in your reasoning.
People almost never...
But, that is not good enough when there is a credible reason to believe another person's life is at stake.
I'm not saying that if a guy is standing on a street corner shouting he's going to do X if he doesn't get Y, that he deserves a bullet in the head.
But, if a guy is hanging out a window, holding on to a small child saying he's going to throw him out if he doesn't get X, then yes, the correct move is to try to eliminate the threat to the victim. If that means killing the perpetrator, then that is unfortunate but necessary.

Our society is so wrapped up in the rights of the criminal, they have put the rights of the victim at a lower level.
