In a previous message I proposed not to get too technical, so I
fully expect to be told to shut up.

What I mean is, that someone who is causing harm is not
automatically a killer. He can easily become one, but until he has,
you can only assume that he will. 

That is why I can't see any justification in your reaction. I can
understand it to a degree, but in no way justify it.

Perhaps I am a technocrat, but if that's what needed to
counterbalance raw emotion and wild instinct, then so be it.
