###  - I am on your side, Lee! For the sake of computability, any
ethical system must define an in-group, or at least a way of deriving
an in-group from available data, otherwise the system is just a load
of useless mess incapable of outputting directives on behavior. My
current model excludes gang members who severely infringe on
legitimate property claims from the in-group's protective privileges,
so yes, disposing of them cheaply and efficiently is right and proper.
