Just a mini comic for a random fan idea for the series, The Walking Dead.

For those who know the show, this would take place during season 2, episode 11: Judge, Jury, Executioner.
It's when the the group is deciding what to do with the new and unwelcomed member, Randall. Many want him gone, or taken care of, while very few would like to keep their humanity and allow him to go free.

Daryl is undecided, while Fawn is debating what's right and what's the safest choice for the group. Decisions decisions.

Humanity is a mostly arbitrary, and often subjective term. Sometimes people say it's humane to kill someone. Other times they say it isn't. The word "humanity" has about as much meaning as the word "fun". It's entirely subjective, changes with context, and from person to person.

True. During this episode, that is exactly what everyone was debating about actually. "What is humane, what is the right thing to do", all in order to keep the group safe. The fan character I created believes that humanity is feeling compassion, sympathy, and tolerance for another (which is basically the Google definition for humanity). Some of the original WD characters believed the same thing. The character they were arguing about (Randal) never did anything wrong or personally harmed anyone from the group, BUT he posed a threat due to the fact that he was part of another group that could be potentially dangerous. BUT he was just a kid.

So personally I would feel that it's "inhumane" to kill someone innocent, even if they were a potential threat on my life. Others would think it's what you have to do to protect yourself, so you "have to do what you have to do". In this case though, my beliefs side with my fan character, and that basically she felt it'd be wrong to kill Randal. This illustration is meant to share what I was personally feeling when watching this episode go down.

In a safer world, like where we live now, it would be more humane to sit down and consider Randall's actions (or lack thereof). But in the hasty, dog-eat-dog world of TWD, given Randall's association with that other group, his safety is outweighed by the safety of Rick's group. Even though Randall may never do anything to harm Rick's group, it is a morally acceptable sacrifice for the sake of protecting a group that has already proven itself trustworthy.
To quote Spock; the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few... or the one.

Yeah and I completely agree, especially for the TWD universe. Personally if I were in the situation though,
I would most likely be torn but be more comfortable with dealing with the situation as it would have been
in the "safer world", because of my personal morals and beliefs. But that's something I liked about this
specific episode, how torn many of the members were and just how they were trying to figure out how to
deal with it. That's what I was trying to capture.
