Lol how is my logic faulty? Non lethal force is just as effective as lethal force.
Pretty much says it all right there doesn't it?
BTW, you should let all Police Officers know this little tidbit.
All this time they've been lugging around loaded guns for nothing when all they ever need was a tazer.
Come on man, you are killing me.
I don't even want to tear down your thinking errors anymore.
It is like taking candy from a baby........at gunpoint.
He tried nothing else to diffuse the situation or to stop the criminal.
He should have at least tried to talk to the guy to find out what was bothering him.
Maybe even a little couples counceling right there on the spot.
"excuse me sir, can you please stop stabbing that woman, I'd like to talk to you for a minute."
You really are priceless.
I don't know if you are serious or if you're just F****ing with me but either way, I like you.
You can play the but they are hurting my family card all you want. It doesnt justify using lethal force.
First of all you are using a technique called minimization.
It was very subtle but I caught it.
Let me show the rest of the class what you just did.
You very cleverly substituted the word "KILLING" with the word "Hurting"
Not so bad when you look at it like that hu?
He was only "Hurting" my family.
Everyone hurts the ones they love don't they??
We all get hurt everyday in one way or another don't we?
Hell, just this morning I hurt my big toe when I stubbed it on the door.
We've all "Hurt" someone at some point our lives haven't we?
I have never had someone KILL me before
Have you ever KILLED anyone? lol, just kidding I already know the answer.
More than likely most people haven't.
So, when you use a word like "Hurt" it is familiar to all of us and we are comfortable with it.
KILLING is a little different though isn't it?
You've never been KILLED before have you?
So, let's take your statement and be a little more intellectually honest shall we?
You can play the but they are KILLING my family card all you want. It doesnt justify using lethal force.
To which I say.........nothing at all.
You are doing a better job than I could ever do at exposing yourself.
With all that being said,
there are no hard feelings. Try not to let it ruin your day.
I DO respect the fact that you are at least consistant in your stance.
You are the first person I have ever had this debate with that was willing to put their ignorance
TOTALLY out there for all the world to see.
That takes courage and I respect you for that, and I am not being a smart ass either.
