Its uncertain what it say's about society. A person need more specifics before answering such a question! Was the individual that was murdered evil? And i don't mean that lightly! I mean what did he do ? Was he sadistic and cruel?Did many people suffer at his hands? Sometimes when a wrong eliminates evil perhaps its not wrong? This isn't my opinion. I believe that no one should ever take the life of another, but then again until im forced to make that decision who am i to judge?
