You know that you must kill them. Do you? If so, do you choose to kill them while they are still human?
A close friend or family member has been bitten by a zombie.
I'd be like Will Smith in I am Legend. I would kill them, and then I'd be broken up about it for a bit. Then I'd get to kicking some zombie ass.
1 to the head for each of them and depending on what type of zombie outbreak.
Depends who they are and how long it takes them to turn. If it's an elderly relative who is just going to slow me down then I would rather put them out of their misery than risk them fucking everything up or going through a lot of pain - this is of course assuming that society has crumbled and I can't take them to a hospital to be euthanised. However if it was someone like my brother and he wasn't going to turn for a few hours, it might be better to let him live for a while - he might be able to help you while he is still in a stable condition.
I also know that, if he did get infected, he would kill himself before I would have to. I would do the same for him if it was me that got infected. We have had our zombie survival strategy planned out for many years.
If the question is "Would you be happy about it" then the answer is, obviously, no.
It depends on how long it takes for them to Zombify. If we're talking 28 days later shit, I'd shoot without thinking, but if it's Dead Rising business I'd chain their wrist to a radiator and find some zombrex or make their last moments worthwhile.
Also I would kill them BEFORE they turned. I wouldn't want them to have to experience that. It may hurt, or they may FEEL themselves losing their mind. I wouldn't want that for them.
My family is filled with tender love and care for one another, so I'd give them some carefully chosen parting words and wait for them to pass (out) before delivering a good chop.
Father - "You thought leukaemia would do you in, surprise surprise. My regards to your brother when you see him."
Mother - "Good news, you won't die from the heart valve issues that took care of your sisters and brothers, bad news, welp!"
Sister - "Guess it's time I finally admit, that you were the one I liked the least of my five sisters. I'll take care of the kids for you"
" Funnily enough I asked this very same question to my mother recently, and she responded with a swift and stern "Yes. If I'm a zombie, I expect you to kill me because...I just wouldn't be myself anymore." If that's not family bonding, I don't know what is. "Your mom is the coolest...
And I would kill them if they didn't want to kill themselves first; after we said goodbye (assuming we have time). I would expect the same of them if I was the one bitten.
Wait until they turn, then destroy them. Don't take your eyes off them until they turn and you've dealt with them, however, or you may find yourself fucked too.
When the world goes to hell, you do everything you can to survive, or you won't. I won't take them out while they're still human, but I have no qualms about killing zombies.
If I found a good opportunity I wouldn't wait for them to turn. Ideally I would catch them asleep or something to make it easier on both of us and also so their last memory isn't me pointing a gun in their face.
I have to say though, what kind of asshole is going to make his or her friend or family member kill them? That's a pretty hard thing to ask of someone. If you had any sense of decency, you would kill yourself. Take it out of their hands completely. Make it easy on them.
Hmm... I'd only kill them human if they ask me to, and maybe not even then. Depends on whether or not the transition is a painful one.
I don't think I'd ever kill another person though, bitten or not. I'm not that heartless. And the guilt would probably kill me faster than the zombies would.
I wouldnt need to do this, my closest friends and I are fully prepared for such a thing?
As far as family goes Id have trouble shooting my mam, siblings and my mothers side of the family. The rest Id shoot if I saw them around in a normal everyday situation.
Enough with the zombies already. I can't believe people actually think about this sort of stuff, I've even read about people having plans for the zombie apocalypse and stuff. Even if it's just for fun it's a bit crazy. Zombies are as fictional as orcs or klingons. I'm proud to say I have not bought anything zombie related since the original Dead Rising.
