CNN's Lou Dobbs Promotes Killing People to Retain Consumer Goods!
12 Dec 2007
Seeing that consumer goods including money,gold and jewellery can be replaced and that human life cannot,where then is the ethical or moral precept of this Texas law that condones the murdering of fleeing burglars?
CNN's Lou Dobbs,on his tv program wednesday night,went out of his way to promote and sanctify the idea that it is A-OK to murder people if they try to "steal" your consumer goods! Mr.Dobbs's viewpoint was backed up by his guest and radio host Michael Medved.Medved called Tom Horn a "Hero" for murdering 2 unarmed men!

In analysing the situation anyone could see that Mr.Horn could have let the police capture these men or he could have stopped these burglars with his shotgun by shooting them non-lethally in the lower extremeties like their legs - but Tom Horn obviously already had his mind made up to "shoot to kill"!

Seeing that consumer goods including money,gold and jewellery can be replaced and that human life cannot where is the ethical or moral precept of this Texas law that condones the murdering of fleeing burglars? As the Bible stated "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!" Its also well to note that criminals can often be rehabilitated - but of course not dead ones!

Taking Lou Dobb's condonment of this double murder one philosophical step further it should be equally moral and justified for a third party to murder the people who are responsible for stealing the resources of a foreign nation!
