The mods may consider this a totally inappropriate thread and if so I apologise and request that they delete it.
The question obviously does not apply to members of the military who may have killed whilst in action but they may post should they so wish.
I would really like to know how you felt afterwards.
I ask because many years ago I accidentally killed a young boy of 7.
It wasn’t my fault, he darted out between parked cars and it was impossible for me to avoid hitting him, the matter went to court and I was exonerated of all blame and even his parents agreed that it was a tragic accident and I was in no way to blame.
Despite this I had bad dreams for months after, I could still see that young lad.
It was about 12 months before the dreams ended but to this day I shall never forget the feeling of absolute horror that I felt as I hit him
