Fair enough

I was just trying to understand your position.

My own opinion is the punishment should be that they get real jobs.

How to accomplish that is the big question.

But if the only answer is shooting people in cold blood I don't want any part of it. And much as I see cops as part of the problem, if I saw someone with a gun sneaking up on a cop (a cop who wasn't engaged in a kidnapping at the time) I would act to defend them.

Aside from the morality of it, if violence is used to secure change, violence will be built into the new paradigm, and nothing will have actually changed.
