    Like I discussed with Masta, this gets to the definition of moral responsibility. Perhaps i am a bit too esoteric, but in my mind taking a life is taking a life. There are some circumstances where it is legally justified to do so. There are also cases where it is both legally and morally justified to take a human life. In all cases, the person taking the life has burdened himself with the moral responsibility of the act, no matter how justified.

    You delineate morally justified and morally responsible. I think they are one and the same

    Fixed. And couldn't agree more. I wanted to hang him at first, but as much of this came to light, it became pretty clear to me. I would also add that upon first hearing the 911 calls, my impression of GZ was completely different than what his detractors and the SA tried to convey. Even the "F-----g punks. They always get away. . . " sounded whiney to me rather than aggressive.
