And say I mistakenly decide that you have raped a child, and I shoot you in the head.
Yep, I should just be let go... Oh wait, but you didnt do it. Hmm, I was wrong.
Why, lets not have any of this trial to determine guilt, stuff.. I was right. I thought you did it. So you died.
End of story.
Yay me, and my stupid gun.
This is ridiculous. no wonder the middle east is so full on, they at least admit their barbarity and not hide behind ignorant justification to kill everything that moves away from them.

I'm not gonna lie, if I were a juror and some grieving father was being brought to task over shooting the man who drunkenly ran down his two boys while he watched I'd be shrieking 'NOT GUILTY' until the other jurors were bleeding from their ears.
And to further drive this grieving father's sentiment home, as a father and a husband I have two people in my life that I will happily murder for. I'm not exaggerating, or trying to play 'Billy-Bad-Ass'. Any man who has an ounce of masculinity left in their testicles knows exactly where I'm coming from.

I wrestle with those same emotions whenever anything like this comes up. Seriously. I am against murder and I do think it's wrong to take another's life, but I am also a mother. I have also lost a child. I know the rage and emotions that come with that even though my loss was not one of violence. It's blinding and all consuming and I can not blame the father for what he did. Justice is not one size fits all. We see it time and time again. It's nice to see it come out on the side of good on occasion.

We should all take revenge this way. It will be a wonderful world.
