Murder is an awfully strong word to use in such exceptional circumstances.
Do you believe your own government upholds "murder"? You have so little
trust in the judicial and lawmaking bodies. You don't mention even a hint of
"Leave the decision to those who are more learned in this area."

I really wish there was this much concern for animals and this much fight
directed towards living a vegetarian life. Not only the animals would
benefit here, but the people who refrain from accumulating this karma.
