    I just read some news on a local website
    long story short: one guy stubbed his friend because this friend of his
    sexually assaulted his young daughter (of the first guy).

    now lets see how most people will look at it:
    "it is justified because of the sexual assault, as he was protecting his daughter"

    so if there is a pole about if this guy shouldn't be charged with an assault
    most of people would of say no, that is at least what i saw on the website.
    (there was a poll)

    now lets look at how I see it:
    "you cant know the case just from those words, you don't know what happened
    in there, you cant even know if the sexual assault actually took place.
    the guy who stubbed his friend could come up with this story to cover his crime
    the guy also could of misunderstand his friend and what happened.
    maybe his friend just put his hand on the girls' shoulder, and her dad saw it as
    sexual assault or maybe the father have some mental issues..."

    yet most people don't think about it, they are simple minded horde of sheep,
    they take the words as they are, without thinking deeper.
    they don't check facts, and if 10 sheep say it was justified, the 11th will
    say the same (like "if 10 people say yes, then its probably yes" sort of psychology)
    and if the poll had political power (like democracy) then no charges would of been dropped on the father.

    at the end, the father was charged with an assault
    yet ALL people said that the judge shouldn't of charge him

    sad but true
    world of sheep

    I understand what your point was but if someone shouts "wolf" and you don't run, and turn around to find one with it's mouth open and about to close around your neck, well...

    You're right about the sheep metaphor though, most are followers.
