'Men get arrested, dogs get put down"- Rorschace from Watchmen
Humans generally behave animalistically, and when ultimatly humanity is abandonded, they become as the old, tired, sick dog. When a human being abandones rationality, the duty of rational human beings is to attone that shell of a human being. In the case of murder, the persuit of irationality to its finality, it is an inhumane act, it is not of mans spirit, but of animal appetite. Human society has no need for animals, they must be put down according to their lowly qualification.
This is true, but murder isn't the best revenge. As humans, we should have no need for an executioner. We are not 'animals' and should punish people according to our standers. I believe we should punish people by imprisoning them, when you imprison someone you take away their human identity. Death is not a punishment, a horrible life is.
It's more the passion than the action. To take a life in retribution is the ultimate rehashing of an event tho. It's like when a girl will bring up the time you said she looked fat in pearls. EVERYONE looks fat in pearls, but that's beside the point.
The intent of revenge killing is a statement. IF you fuck with me, I'll make sure it's the last thing you do; that kinda thing. It's a personal statement tho, liek a mantra almost. Depends how serious you take your self I'm guessing, some people kill eachother over really fucking stupid reasons (cheating wife) instead of just taking life in stride they need to dwell on how they've been wronged. When they should be figuring out how to right the wrong, basically.
