Some of the recent posts here have gotten me thinking about the case of the hopeless situation, where you know that no matter what you do you are probably going to die. For instance, BGs lining up hostages in a robbery and starting to shoot one by one, or you've already been shot and are losing blood rapidly but are still conscious, etc.
Most people would probably respond that they would like to 'go down shooting', and I was a bit skeptical of the motives of such discussion. That is, until I realized: people who are willing to kill innocent people like this will never stop. So, by 'going down fighting', if you manage to mortally wound some BGs in the process, you are almost certainly saving the life of some other innocent person who would be their next victim.
Just some food for thought.
