    I think I'd still be too scared to stick around and I'd just want to get as far away as possible with my family. I don't think I'd kill in cold blood for revenge unless it was one of my children that had been hurt.

    If, when I got out, my family was dead, I might fixate on killing the guy and eventually do it. I might not have anything else to occupy me.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Depends.

    What kind of torture? Well, I suppose if it were that he tortured me, it would be bad no matter what kind.


    Mmmmm I can't say no. Too many possibilities.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    If I was guaranteed to get away with it, I'm pretty sure I would.

    I don't think I could personally kill anything larger than a fly... actually, fish are kinda big . I don't think I'd do it out of vengeance, I don't tend to feel the need for that. But if it was a job, or a sheer necessity, there's a chance that I'd detach and go through with it. A thirst for vengeance probably isn't the best quality a person could have, I admit that it would take a lot of guts to kill someone, but what's the point.

    Besides: Wouldn't 16 years of torture make one quite insane?
    I might actually kill the man without knowing that it is reality and not just another of my fantasies.


    EDIT: I don't know who I am after 16 years of torture.

    Kill them? Probably not. I don't see death as punishment. It's an easy way out.

    Seek some kind of retribution? Possibly.

    I'd try to find some closure.



    I like the little smiley-face icon for this thread. Nice touch.

    No.

    But I would kill a person to protect my loved ones. I'm very sure about that.

    yes I think in all probability decades of abuse/torture that ones day you would snap and do something you would normally find horrific (and I beleive most people probably would).

    I also thing that in the right conditions you would also eat them (think what happened int he Urals in Russia - canabals or death)

    Do keep in midn it would take a lot of abuse to get msot people there

    I really don't know, there would be a lot of factors going into my decision and even then I don't think my mind would be made up until the very last second possible.

    Ruining his life but leaving him alive would be very tempting, though if I still had a life waiting for me outside I don't think I could choose that option, because long term revenge tends to take time and effort (as in The Count of Monte Cristo).

    I'd say that it would all depend on the moment I saw him really

    Would You Kill a Person
    If I was placed in a position where I had to.

    Yes, without a second's hesitation.
