In a worldwide catastrophe, every single murderer and rapist just vanished from the world at the same time. Nothing left behind, either dust, clothes, or whatever they were carrying at the moment.
There were millions of witnesses. People on the subway saw their fellow commuters go voosh right in front of them.
The criteria is as follows:
- Murder: Willingly and consciously terminating the life of another breathing human, regardless of any secular justification (war, legal executions, etc). Abortions are out, since fetus don't breathe. Vehicle accidents are also out, unless the vehicle driver had the intent of driving to kill (e.g. Terrorist drive-thru)
- Rape: Forced genital intercourse with another breathing human that is either unwilling or unable to give consent regardless of gender. Again, regardless of legal standings of a particular country. Any intercourse that is not genital on genital is disregarded.
But how many people did vanish that day? How to estimate this quantity?
P.S.: I am going to post other questions regarding this event, but the Stack rules say "One question per post."
