Default Re: Contradictions in the London Police Shooting

What scares me is the relativization of the value of human life. The principle of innocent until proven guilty of course lets a lot of people off the hook, but is the price we pay for the better good.

Life is risky. Anyone can go out in the street with a knife and kill someone. Or he can use a car. But we know those risks are much less problematic than trying to give power to people to decide who lives and dies, based on racial profile or anything else.

With this whole situation, life is not an ABSOLUTE value anymore. End of civilization as we know it.
