But what if Chloe had simply hit the guy over the head with a bat? The guy lives but is brain dead. The result is the same but different weapon.
Sorry to bring personal experience into this BUT my brother suffered a massive head injury when I was a kid. He fell during a work accident. He was Brain Dead. My parents decided not to keep his body alive by machine.
He was gone.
If a similar injury happened as a result of purposeful attack -
that would be murder.
Yeah, I know its just a tv show. Not trying to be overtly seriously here. This was almost 20 years and I barely remember him I was so young. Just giving my POV. Which is that my definition of "Brain Dead" has been ingrained in mind my whole lofr.
Sorry to hear about your brother. I don't have any experience with this myself. I was just going with how entertainment like Smallville
generally handles the situation. Unless the good guy is a soldier, a cop or some sort of anti-hero, most shows and movies of this sort have the good guy putting the bad guy out of commission without actually killing them.
while I think this guy was murdered I think it was really Brainiac in control and not Chloe. Just my current take....
We will see.
Guess we will.
