    Why Isn't This Killing Justified?

    Ohio is not a stand your ground state, and does not bless a homicide to prevent a theft, such as shooting a would-be car thief if you are not in the car at the time. In all cases, even a home burglary, you must reasonably fear imminent danger before you are legally entitled to shoot to kill...

    Lynching a PEDOPHILE, justified or not?

    In the video above, which I put in spoilers because it gets quite violent at times, a group of teen boys in Efremov, a small town near the city of Tula, Russia, beat a 47 year old man.

    A Tale of a Cop and Thugs - When is death justified for being, just being?

    (Thug as the code word) Is it the man choked to death for selling cigarettes on a street corner to survive? Was it the two policemen sitting in their vehicle working and raising their kids? Was it a man killed on the street with no knowledge of a crime? Was it an unarmed teenager who walked...

    Police union chief calls killing of 12-year-old justified.

    Why Is Authority Justified?

    Status quo authorities often take the excuse that if you don't like what they have to say, tough. You have to put up with it because they say so or else. You see this in households, firms, governments, clubs, churches, and elsewhere in organizational behavior. The status quo, even if...
