Im no treehugger but we cannot blame everything on the hippys... Human Kind has no reason to do research such as they did? What did they want to figure out where rage comes from....RAGE COMES FROM 5 'o'Clock TRAFFIC WHEN YOUR ON YOUR WAY HOME FROM WORK AND SOME BLUE HAIR JUMPS IN FRONT OF YOU SO YOU MAY HIT HER AND GIVE HER THE CHANCE TO SUE YOUR ASS FOR GIVING HER WIPLASH......sorry......I hate old drivers.....errrr.....yeah.....! Such research is useless.

The scientists, just like in "Alien Resurrection", "The Fly 2" and "Resident Evil"; the “stupid treehuggers” (I said “stupid” because I’m also kinda treehugger and I would NEVER do something as stupid as that), just like in "Jurassic Park 2 – Lost World".

------
Note: “treehuggers”, “animal rights activists” and “hippies” are all different definitions (although they are frequently related)– keep it real.

Amen brother. I think that it was 1) the scientist fault for creating (or developing/isolating) the diease and 2) for the militant actions of some people who thought they were doing the right thing.
Animal testing is always wrong no mater how you look at it. If we need to test something and feel the need to test it on our closest living relatives (chimps) then why don't we just take a drive down to the prison and gather up a few bad people (rapest, murderes, pedophiles, ect...)??? I think that would solve alot of problems right there

Dinochick! Im appalled!

You believe it is ok to invade the body of another human being against their will and to test things on them? To violate their civil rights? How is that any different from telling a woman she cant have an abortion? (i make no judgements on THAT issue)

Yes, once they have comitted a crime and are in prison for life they should no longer have any rights, at least for the ones who have committed the most horrible crimes.

Exactly, an eye for an eye maybe... without sounding barbaric.

Re: 28 days Later: Whose Fault?

Its a difficult subject.
I for one dont agree with testing on a human being without their permission whoever they are.

But then again nor do i believe in doing so on an animal either.

I can see the logic behind Dinochick and merlin's points,but i emphasise the word logic.
Yes it does make sense but the "an eye for an Eye" theory leaves a lot to be desired.

What is the difference between that and the death sentence?

Re: 28 days Later: Whose Fault?

If the government takes an eye-for-an-eye approach to its Justice System, whats the difference between cops and vigilantes? It's not supposed to be about revenge.

I agree.
The death sentence is meant to be a deterrent and yet it has made no difference whatsoever to the crime rate in the states

Ditto.

If someone injures someone, it's natural instinct to strike back, and if the attack was premeditated, then the tretribution should be at least equal to the attack, plus "interest" for the malice to have carried it out in the first place.

So, the retribution should always be a degree above the suffering the criminal caused.

Re: 28 days Later: Whose Fault?

Revenge makes you blind. It's powerful. People under its influence make snap judgements and bad decisions, and then more people suffer needlessly. Justice and Revenge can't co-exist.

Sure they can. All it takes is a strong will to judge it, and another to enforce it.

I see. So you do support terrorism after all.
