In reply to The best result - Dana Pico - Common Sense Political Thought
It almost certainly was the best result.
But me and my pesky American values and firm belief in those God-given, inalienable rights, is having a little trouble with our executing an unarmed man, no matter who he was or what he “allegedly” did. (assuming that’s what we did, of course… The story is apparently still “fluid,” and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it change, yet again.) Once we make exceptions to those inalienable rights, they run the risk of devolving into wishy washy situational ethics, and I’m just not cool with that.
It helps to buy into the meme that he might’ve had a suicide vest on under his speed racer pj’s, and thus the men who shot him acted in defense of themselves, the innocent civilians, and the others in their squad… …but it’s a kind of thin cover, where rights and values are concerned.
