A question I have asked many friends would you rather be the parent of the murdered or the murderer?

Murderer.

Murderer

because at least then my child would be alive.

WidowWadman Tue 16-Aug-11 22:14:04

Neither

god, what an awful thing to find myself contemplating!

I agree with NotSuch - the murderer.

As painful as it would be to know my child had killed someone, it would be a million times more painful for them to be dead.

Too awful to contemplate. Sophie's Choice - can't do it.

I cannot answer my own question, either would devastate me.

the murderer.

lisad123 Tue 16-Aug-11 22:28:53

neither, I cant say my childs life is anymore valuable than another persons!

Too disturbing to contemplate seriously.

The murderED would be a lifetime of sorrow and despair.

The murderER would mean a lifetime of regret and guilt.

neither.

I'm with Pan, don't want to be the parent of either, thanks very much.

Horrible thing to contemplate. I would have to say the murderer.

Thanks I'll be off to sleep now to have sweet dreams about my teenagers marauding around the village killing people!

Why are you even thinking about this? Really horrid sort of poll shock

Durham-----SORRY it is something that has made me think about a mum who shopped her sons for murdering a man in a nearby town.
