A brief word on murder.

You are going to die, just as I will die, and every living thing must die. The money in your purse will not mysteriously move into my wallet, but you will die.

Murder is only the bringing forward of something that, unlike theft, is inevitable.

A doctor in a hospital ward had an old man dying in his hospital bed. He known the man will die before morning. Into the hospital comes a young girl, injured in a car crash. She will die if she does not get into a hospital bed in ten minutes. If the doctor turns off the old mans life support, he murders him. If he does not, he murders the girl.

If the old man will die at 6am, is it murder if the doctor turns off life support at 5:58am?

World War 1. 10:59am, 11, November 1918. A soldier shoots an enemy and he is a war hero.

World War 1. 11:01am, 11, November 1918. A soldier shoots an enemy and he is a murderer.

(The war ended at exactly 11AM.)
