    Reasons vary....but is taking the life of another altogether justified?  Depending on the circumstances my reply is this:

    Self-defense>  Absolutely
    Death Penalty relating to convicted offenders> No
    Mercy killing for vegetative state people> Depends on the case and the pre-established desire of the person now in the vegetative state.

    Out right killing anyone...   Wrong...not right...Bottomline

    There are many dimensions that apply to the thought process of a person that kills.  Myriads of researchers throughout the ages contribute it to eight basic dimenisions that "influence people to kill. 

    1. Social environment
    2. Family background
    3. Peer group association/personal relationships
    4. Contact with defining agencies, law enforcement, psychologists/psychiatrist, other agencies
    5. Offensive behaviors
    6. Self-concept
    7. Attitudes
    8. Recall of events

    Now, these dimensions are not all inclusive and there could be more added in the future.  If you take a close look at these dimensions, they tend to overlap one with each other.  Take for instance Jeff Dahmer, he had a horrible childhood, resinted his mother, had self esteem issues, recalled past events, had a poor attitude, and so on.  So, to answer your question, there is no one single reason that people kill.  It's an intertwined and tangled web of psychopathic, biological, and sociological deficiencies that occur in the mind of the killer.

    No one has the right to kill another human being.  Self dense is one thing but....Just killing for the heck is wrong!!!

    Greed is always a strong motivation to kill someone, jealousy another, we've all heard of crimes of passion. Others enjoy the thrill of exerting complete control over someone else, others kill to cover up other crimes, some simply for revenge.
    Everyone's life is important and thank goodness most of us respect that.
