It has nothing whatsoever to do with neighbour being "merciful" or not, David,
Thomas' advice has to do with misplaced mercy, Olga.
or exposing him to possible danger.
It has everything to do with an appropriate response to neighbour's irrational & cruel act.
Or maybe 2 acts, if he also killed Arella's other dog which went missing.
has to do with future self defense

that u "fully understand" if the Neighbor returns in malice ????????
I would feel exactly the same.
Clearly there is something very wrong with neighbour,
for him to do what he has done. He is dangerous.

Using a gun against him is not going to help matters at all.
What is the purpose of weapons ?????????

He needs to be treated for his "condition" whatever it is,
before he is let loose on innocent people & their animals again.
Tho admittedly, I have not attended medical school,
I have a hunch that "his condition" can be treated by encephalectomy,
accomplished by a few rounds of softpointed or hollowpointed .45 Long Colt
administered to the intracranial cavity, restoring peace and harmony back into the neighborhood, including all of its fauna.
