If he's being a bad enough guy right now, then that's enough of a valid dichotomy for me to decide whether or not he needs shooting.

The good guy vs. bad guy model is good enough to fit the situation as it exists. It isn't perfect, but what is? ...
Yes, and perhaps "Bad actor" in that a person (who might otherwise be nice to dogs and their mother*) who is currently being a bad and dangerous criminal RIGHT NOW is what we are talking about. On second thought, that is made pretty damn clear in that thread. No one, I repeat no one is suggesting killing someone just because they are a "bad guy". They are posting stories where a criminal is currently and at that very moment being a "clear and present danger".

The Ops whole point is thus invalidated.
