ďAt least 23 passengers were killed and 16 wounded after gunmen opened fire on a local bus in northern Honduras. . .

The bus - carrying mainly women and children - was driving through a busy neighbourhood when it was surrounded by the attackers who opened fire. . .

The attackers left behind a note saying they represented a revolutionary group opposed to the reintroduction of the death penalty in Honduras. ď

Men killing women and children
in order to oppose possible reintroduction of the death penalty.
See a problem with that?

I would hope very few people need a semantic twist of irony to see a problem with that, John. Men killing women and children, for any reason conceivable, should be problem enough.

John
Please do not dis the higher animals who only kill by accident, or who show mercy when their opponent gives up...or who may kill another but only because they are hungry
We call them the lower order, but are they really?

Only human beings are capable of murder, Only human beings are capable of rationalizing the taking of a life from one who has taken life away from another, and call it justice.

The murders of the passengers was a purely human act, as well as the act that the murderers opposed...
