    not trying to be a cool kid or anything but I honestly don't place that much value on life in the first place

    I mean there's 7 billion people on the planet, millions of people could die one day and it wouldn't really make a difference lol

    Everyone dies eventually, it's just natural, doubt they really care about life once they are dead

    I don't think I would have a problem with killing someone but I definitely wouldn't do it without a very good reason

    I think I would try to, though I'd probably brick it.

    I have no idea, I don't think I have it in me, but who knows what I'd do under that sort of pressure...

    Most people would defend the lives of themselves/family if push came to shove - the law allows for that too in terms of 'reasonable force' . If an assailant has a lethal weapon, using a brick would be perfectable reasonable

    OK, say your being attacked...this guy is mental...really hurting you yeah.

    There's a brick near you, could you pick it up and kill said attacker?
    I've seen enough episodes of Deadliest Warrior to kill him a thousand times over with that brick.

    Seriously though, I doubt I'd hesitate to grab the brick and smash him across the head with it. I wouldn't try and incapacitate him until the police arrived, just go for it.

    Of course, I might be overestimating how much of a badass I am, so truthfully I don't know. I'd like to think I could protect myself, friends or family against an attacker.

    If someone had killed/was trying to kill myself or my family I would respond as best I could,in self defense and anger probably but that doesn't mean I could kill them,not sure I would have the strength,if I say had to beat them with a break,especially if they had a gun or a knife I probably wouldnt survive.

    Reading the responses I think it is apparent a lot of people think they are capable of murder, and probably would freely do so if there werent any reprocussions.

    I'd kill someone if there was no other option. But if I had the opportunity to say hit them with the brick knock them out or incapacitate them and run I would do that.

    I think everyone has that survival urge and if its triggered would kill in order to survive, protect etc. i can honestly say if it was a choice between me and this person attacking me i would kill them.
