Put yourself in the homeowner's shoes. You hear a loud noise and hear someone enter your home. You arm yourself. You go to your kitchen and confront 3 people wearing masks. You are out-numbered. You don't know their ages. You only see 3 masked felons who just broke into your home. You don't know if they have any guns on them.
Because you are not a professionally trained law enforcement agent, the next few moments could make the difference whether or not you and your family is going to be dead or alive. Maybe you could apprehend them yourself, maybe not. Trying to apprehend 3 felons by yourself would be risky for even an experienced police officer.
Now, to me the safest choice of all would be to open fire immediately and eliminate the danger to you and your family. Why? Because many criminals are motivated to commit crimes because of one common reason. DRUGS. I would gladly wager a bet for $1000 that at least 1 of the perpetrators had used drugs in the last 24 hours. People on drugs are far more dangerous than those who aren't. Just ask any police officer.
lmao. Why do you hate men so much, easy target?
I don't hate men. I hate stupid people equally. (Just in case you were confused--- you're one of those stupid people.)
lol. me thinks the man-hater doth protest too much, eh, little stupid one?
I spend my hard-earned money on safaris all around the world without killing anything. That's the way conservation works. Not by killing stuff, be it an elephant, a deer,... I do make exceptions for sandflies, leeches and mosquitos though!
What do you do to make conservation work, except for defending people that make their living by killing wild animals for fun?
I agree, even to ponder or entertain the idea that it was money.....terrible. I believe he did this to heal her suffering because he loved her so.
Conservation isn't that simple. It's war. It takes guns and money and manpower to protect animals. There are poachers armed with more than cameras who will kill every animal the can find. There people on the front lines, putting their lives at risk for these animals. The hunters are at odds with the poachers and they have the motivation to get out there and help stop the slaughter. Are they the ideal? Of course not, but they are out there willing to put their lives at risk to help.
I read about this guy and he isn't part of the problem. He was an activist who was well respected and well liked. Is it so hard to give a man the benefit of the doubt?
The owner of that pitt bull is a real piece of trash. how can she think her dog isnt responsible? that animal needs to be put down and the owner better lawyer up because shes going to get sued and hopefully face some criminal charges.
i thought you got few BPO mike.
You didn't answer my question. You veer around it by claiming hunters are on the forefront of conservation, but failing to understand they hunting lodges not have any unique talent for conservation compared to e.g. safari lodges. Poachers are the real treat for animal extinction, that far we can agree. But hunters give the wrong example and they are effectively killing wild animals (if not canned hunting) for their pleasure, giving the wrong example for local communities and poachers alike (who often come from local communities, and feel they have every reason to poach animals if hunters shoot those animals as well!).
