Eye for an eye? Tooth for tooth?
Just be bad enough where someone will in turn kill you if you are yourself a killer?
How do you be humane to all parties involved?
I agree that the situation sucks when that happens. Would you become the beast to protect the innocent blessed loving ones from other beasts if there was no other way, even if you had to pay the price of leaving the blissful home because you do not fit in there anymore and have to start over with karmadebt again?
It isn't down to money. That is just part of the benefit of removing them from the planet. Keeping them would be akin to keeping that smudge on your cheek, that stain on your shirt, the moldy left overs in the fridge, or the dog poop on the carpet. It is never wrong to do proper cleansing.

advanced cultures dont kill humans unless its for defence and a warning has been given
I can't tell you how ticked off self-satisfied comments like this make me feel. But, my personal frustrations aside, how does our advanced culture justify this supposedly inhumane practice, when it is considered the only humane thing to do to "put down" a beloved pet that is suffering and in pain?

I think both are wrong also. At the same time, if all they are going to do is sit in a cage for decades what is the point in everyone else paying for that? If prisoners were used for hard labor during their sentences maybe that would add to the deterrence factor. People know if they get locked up they are going to sit there and wait for their time to be up...
