Sociopaths will laugh when they read that.

You laughed. . .  admit it.

No, I know what it's like to feel guilt.

It's the entities with no moral compass who were laughing.

Because the robber is going to be tried for committing a crime, and the shooter is not.


The robber is dead, so no, he's not going to be tried. He is dead.

💀

In fact the convenience store owner may be tried, because the article says the investigation is ongoing.

Vulcan control ftw. I know when I shouldn't laugh (which is always, every joke is at someone's expense) so I don't.

Your society is very much headed in that direction, except that "positive" emotions like hate will be permitted. It's positive when it's directed against evil people like racists, you see.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

That should save taxpayers money, which will make a very lot of people happy.

Have you watched the video?

The investigation should continue. They should try to find out where the robber got the gun.

The store owner's gun was almost certainly legal. Even if it wasn't, he has a natural right to defend himself and his property.

So my question remains about why they have to say allegedly for the robber and not the shooter.

I would rather quote myself:

"When you injure another man, you'll carry the guilt until his wounds heal - when you kill a man, you'll carry the guilt for the rest of your life." - SkyChief


That's a weird thing to say Chief.  So if some guy comes into rob you, you would feel guilty for killing him?  What you should be worried about is that he doesn't die and then tries to take you to court.

Did you forget about the riots?

I don't know - thankfully, I've never had to kill anyone.

But if I injured someone - either willfully, or accidentally - I would feel some guilt or at the very least, some degree of culpability.  That would go away if/when he heals.

When I was 15, I pushed a guy off a diving board, and he hit his head on the concrete edging of the pool.  There was blood, ambulances, police, lawyers, the whole 9 yards.  Fortunately, he pulled through just fine, and i haven't really given much thought about it until just now.  (he deserved it BTW)

If I killed someone - no matter what the circumstances - I would think about it each and every day for the remainder of my life.

I can understand that but just thinking about it doesn't mean the thoughts have to be guilt-ridden.

You bought a gun to protect yourself, your family and your property.  No one wants to have to take a life but others don't respect life.

Guns and the death penalty save lives.

But you don't have a gun.  How would you feel if you were put in a position where you had to shoot someone to save your life or property?

Could you do it?  Many think they could, but would freeze up. 

The shop owner had no hesitation in sending the robber to his maker.

I might have hesitated.  I don't know.   I hope I never have to find out.
