Could you live with it? Could you cover it up in the first place? Do you have those lying eyes?

I'm going to keep the poll private so that you can answer without having to admit to anything, but I'd /love/ explanations.

I probably couldn't live with killing a person, but I bet I could cover it up pretty well. What's funny is we're both vegan, so I couldn't hurt an animal, let alone a human!

I dont think I could ever murder someone, but I could defend myself. I would have a hard time dealing with that if I had to kill someone. But I think I could deal with it.

Not sure I could murder someone without some qualms, so getting away with it would be hard

Yeah, I really don't know how well I'd cope with actually killing someone, even in self-defense, but I think that I would be able to get away with it pretty well. Plus I just don't "look" like a killer, and in this town, with this police force? I think that would actually really be in my favor. Unless they called in behavioral analysts or something. I should take spy training so that I'm prepared just in case.

I don't think I will be able too. I just don't have it in me then when I fib I tend to laugh and not keep a straight face. I would be no good at it.

There are several situations I can think of where I'd have no issues ending someone....and feel very little guilt. If someone was trying to hurt my kids, or was between me and my kids and they were in danger....they'd be done. In most cases like that I wouldn't need to cover it up, as it would be legally not so horrible....but if I needed to cover something like that up, and it fell within my earlier parameters, sure.

Don't I sound all cold and calculating...sheesh.

I've had this discussion before, and I've had dreams where someone broke in my house and was holding my kid, and I shot them without even a moment of hesitation. I think in real life it would be similar. I have a very strong mother bear instinct.

I think that that makes perfect sense, but that you're hopefully right that you wouldn't have to cover something like that up. If your kids are being threatened and there's no way to stop it aside from violence, then violence is justifiable.

According to the TV, CSI teams can catch anyone - but of course they don't. People get away with murder every day - it's probably a matter of picking someone that few people care about.

I'm terrified at the thought of killing anyone for any reason. Even in justified self defense.

I'm sure I could get away with it...I'm kinda already OCD about stray hairs, and fingerprints on things...yeah. I mean nooooo, I couldn't do that.

I'm a terrible liar. There's no way I could get away with murder.

I can lie a little bit, but not when it's a stright-forward question. It's all over my face.

Well, I'd never kill anybody... but if it happened... I wouldn't be able to lie about it.. so no...I wouldn't be able to get away with murder.

I am terrified of hitchhiking because of how many serial killers there are that just drive along highways, murdering people. And no one even knows how many there are, because it's so difficult to connect the murders, let alone find them. Eeek.

I have access to a crematorium and extensive experience with DNA handling/aseptic technique (i.e., not leaving your DNA lying around or letting it contaminate things). If I was really motivated, I think I could adequately cover-up a homicide.

No, I have an anxiety disorder, so I would probably break down and confess or go insane before they got close to catching me.

First drop of blood and I'd be vomiting all over the place. That's sooo not something I could handle.

This response randomly reminded me of an episode of Xena, Warrior Princess that I watched as a kid where Xena meets a look-alike who faints at the site of blood. So I'm now officially picturing you as a super petite Lucy Lawless. xD

The key here is to destroy the body by some means, BURN all clothing/evidence, and KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!! Outside of DNA/fingerprints, the most common way a criminal is found out is because he/she couldn't just shut up about what they had done. And NEVER ever ever talk to the cops without a lawyer present. If they don't have enough evidence, and no confession, a conviction is highly unlikely.

**Edit to add: Pull the teeth, remove clothes, and feed the body to pigs. They will eat anything and leave no evidence!**

That is a tough one. Guilt would ripe me apart. I can't even keep my Christmas gifts a secret to my wife for her.. LOL

Ahhh--Hannibal Lecter.....

If I did have to murder someone, I do have a perfect location. Mountain lake overgrown with weeds....cement blocks or rocks and a lot of cable. But-- keeping it to myself and not freaking out? Possible but depends. Lying to anyone about anything to do with it--no. I am the worlds worst liar...even a little kid can tell I am fibbing!!!
