Put it this way, even if Epikeia were to be applied in certain circumstances, now as in Antiquity neither Judaism nor Christianity considers that lying is OK.

Where is this thread going, please?

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

This thread received it's last reply before your's more than over 1 1/2 years ago. :zzz:

It's is unclear to me what you are referring to by " for sure not".

In any case, meanwhile, to me bounty hunting is just another facet of "police" life, in the largest possible meaning of the word "police".

Criminals are on the run, -some folks catch em for money, -either police, or bounty hunters.

The criminals are not sold as cheeseburgers at MacDuffys.

End of story.

Alright Hanzze. no problem.

But it seems you think that bounty hunter captives arrive in custody injured?

What do you base your information on?

I had never heard of Bounty hunting before I watched "Dog" on TV.

He doesn't seem to injure people at all.

But I have seen violent American policemen on TV.

I've read that being a policeman isn't considered right livelihood as well as it might include having to use violence and hurt people. If this is the case (that is is wrong livelihood) then being a bounty hunter would be even worse.

Yes, Hanzze. I can.

But I hardly ever catch or discipline with the body.

No problem, your concern is justified!

Certain situations are more conducive to breeding violence than others!

In harmless jobs you don't get as many opportunities to slip as in more violent ones.

Say, is this a Gorilla baby on your avatar? It's cute. :smile:
