    A sendup, no doubt, but Poe's Law applies in this matter.

    So: And since in our special and extraordinary case the "vast majority" of them are "good", what has happened to everybody else throughout history and around the the world then will not happen to us. It's not even a serious risk.

    I don't know if this was addressed, but a more accurate translation of the Torah is "You shall not murder". There is no prohibition against a justified killing. There is plenty of killing in the bible, for goodness sake read the Leviticus - misbehaving child; kill him or someone collecting firewood on Saturday; kill him.

    If it comes down to a vicious dog about to kill a child, or being shot by a police officer, I am all for cops killing them. This, again, is something they should get a medal for.

    None of those dogs I showed were going to kill a child. Once again you strawman.
