    For example if i told you that this person had killed over 10 people in the past and i had killed that person it would be for the greater good(capital punishment, let's say i managed to get them in that situation)

    You'd think hey that's not bad no-one wants that kind of person around but i(for the sake of examples) told you a half truth and didn't tell you the full story.

    The full story let's say was the person had reformed of their ways and has started helping those less fortunate than themselves and never ever went near anyone again with the intent or anything to kill.

    Am i lying or not?

    It's deceiving but I don't know about lying, devicing is twisting or telling the truth to make it seem different and lying is saying something that isn't true. Although lying is a form of deceiving but deceiving isn't lying

    This, really. From a moral point of view, missing out important pieces of information to change perceptions in your favour is incredibly deceitful, but to lie is to tell something that isn't true, so technically the person the OP is describing hasn't lied but has instead been deceitful, which is no better in itself but again it's technically not a lie.
