1. Preface

Murdering is an act where a human kills another human being which equals criminality according to the law these days, this is because the world has noticed that each human has its own right to live so other human beings cannot decide about another person’s life.[1] Murdering already existed thousands of years ago. Murdering happens because when humans do something wrong sometimes they try to hide whatever they have done and by doing that they believe that no one will notice the problem. Humans have been doing this for a very long time and this has been a habit to some of us today. The reasons are the common symptoms of the human brain.[2] The average rates from 2010 to 2012 suggest that America is more likely to be subject to murdering.[3] The purpose of this paper is  to analyse and solve this case from CH perspective.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Homicide as a daily event?

Homicide as a daily event sounds frightening.[4] According to the Oxford Dictionary, homicide means the killing of one person by another.[5] Will killing people really solve anything?[6] This is one of the question to be answered from CH’s perspective.

 

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights says all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.[7] This means that we have the right to be free of bullying and unpleasant events. Next is that everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of a person.[8] Meaning that everyone has the right to live because it’s his/her own life. Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.[9] Murdering happens all the time in many different places.[10] There is no country which does not have terrorism, murdering or other crime.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Picture. 1 The Most Violent Cities by Continent in 2011

 

Source: https://www.statista.com/chart/4079/the-most-violent-cities-by-continent/

According to the picture above, Tegucigalpa is the most violent city, the second would be Bogota, followed by Sao Paolo, Kampala, Ulan Bator, Almaty, Mexico City and the least violent is Auckland. The average based on this picture will be 13.18 homicides (per 100,000 inhabitants in 2011.) The range of the data will be that 101.5 people got killed.

 

Homicide already started a long time ago. The Holocaust was the period in 1933 until 1945, when Adolf Hitler murdered around 6 million Jewish people all over Europe. Only around 3 to 4 million Jewish people survived. About half of the Jewish victims died in concentration camps or death camps such as Auschwitz. The other half died when Nazi soldiers marched into many large and small towns in Germany, Poland, the Soviet Union and other areas.

Hitler started a World War to achieve his dream of world domination. The war left behind an estimated 72 million dead. Jews were the targets of the Holocaust because Hitler hated Jews and blamed them for all of the problems in the world.[11]

 

In Balinese tradition there is a sesonggan (Parable of two similar incidents in objects or animals): “Ngerebutin balung tain paisi.” it means fighting for things which are useless. It is the same with homicide: In many cases the murderer kills the victims, because he/she is craving for something that the victim has. But even though if the murderer gets the object from the victim it has no use because even though the murderer has the object, when he or she dies, the murderer will not be in possession of that item anymore.

 

Stephen Hawking has warned that artificial intelligence could rise up and destroy mankind. What he means by this is that if artificial intelligence and humankind are combined humans won’t be humans.[12] Artificial intelligence is meant to be a copy of the human brain, but it is not complete yet. Scientists still don’t know all the processes of a human brain. What they are trying to do to get the answer is by using Google and letting people search information. People made Google to find out the process of the human brain; that means to find out what humans are interested in and to know what is popular right now. Once they fully know the process of the human brain scientists can create artificial intelligence on their own.[13]

 

So the question is how to use artificial intelligence as a weapon. In the USA, Barrack Obama created a program called “obamacare” which is a medical insurance where doctors implant a very small microchip into our body that contains personal information and a tracking device. What this means is that there are already technologies that can be implanted into our body. This is very dangerous because, what if artificial intelligence is completed in the future scientists could be able to install it inside that microchip and implant it in people’s brain so that humans could be able to control another human and by doing that they can use it for criminality like murder. In the USA there is an organization called DARPA or the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency. It is a group for creating technology that is useful for us but they are also part of making  perfect artificial intelligence. They are the ones who made SIRI, or Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface, which is a software that is installed in Apple products. What they are currently trying to do is to create a very small GPS and install it inside the implantable microchip to track people using a satellite.[14]

 

Technology is what humans have strongly developed in. Technology comes from a branch of knowledge or ideas which will be created for the use of life, society and environment. But are we controlling technology or is technology controlling us? For example, for the past few years, the homicide rate increased by 54% in Washington D.C. The homicide rate increased from 88 homicides in 2012 to 119 in 2015. According to the Washington Times, Assistant Police Sheriff, Peter Newsham, blames the high increase of the murdering rate on guns. His evidence is that almost every person that he arrested is armed with a gun or a gun was presented at the crime scene.

With that example we predict that the technology that will be developed in the future will highly increase the number of murders.[15]

 

In our opinion, this can be proven by an the organization called Freemason. Freemason was founded through knowledge and war. What they are trying to do is to create  artificial intelligence. They need artificial intelligence because they require a brain that can think very logical and create amazing inventions for example a robot who do anything the human says. However they are trying to create it with criminal measures. In the 1900s there was a man named Thomas Blake Glover and he traveled to Japan to explore a new country. The things that he brought to Japan however were fire weapons. He sold so many weapons to Japan in order to get money for Freemason. Freemason also invited Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton to help them create a better world which to them means to own the whole world.

 

During World War II they disappeared because they did not have worldwide connections. Freemason has two symbols which is the pyramid and 666. When you add the numbers 666 it equals 18. Everything in this world seems to be related to 18 like Seven Eleven or the attack on the World Trade Center and others of the World’s greatest incidents, as well as money. On a 20 dollar bill, the 7th president of America is portrayed and he was also a member of Freemason.

 

What proves this is the fact that the O.K sign was made by him. When we take a closer look at the O.K sign it can also be read as “666”. Furthermore when we look at it upside down it will show the numbers 9/11 which represents one of the greatest catastrophes that happened in the U.S. The truth about the 20 dollar bill is that it’s a prophecy: when we fold a 20 dollar into half vertically, then fold it again into a shape of an airplane, it will show the twin tower that happened on 9.11. But it’s not only that, when we fold other US dollars which are 5-100, it will make a story of the 9.11.

 

Freemason theories have been in particular proven worldwide, in USA and in Japan. When you add the numbers of the Japanese yen coins and notes numbers 666 for the coins and 18 for the notes will be shown. Also the radio signal “1242hrz” in Japan has been tested: number 12+4+2 it will equal 18. There is one signal which is 999; this won’t equal to 18 but when we turn it upside down will be 666 which equals 18. These are sign that this world is controlled by Freemason. 9.11 was not an accident because the building had been very solid so that in case of an earthquake it would not be damaged. It was also impossible to melt down the metal with a airplane they had to use bombs to melt it down. So this incident was planned. It wasn’t an accident. The number 666 also appears in catholic stories as the symbol of evil. It is shown in the Holy Bible, which means that Freemason should be regarded as the devil.

 

The book Ape and Essence begins with a vignette describing the destruction of the world by nuclear and chemical warfare at the hands of intelligent baboons. The two warring sides each have an Einstein on a leash which they force to press a button, releasing a massive cloud of gas which transmits a disease from both sides of the building.

The story then advances to a time 100 years after the catastrophic events of World War 3 which the characters in the book call “the Thing”, when nuclear and chemical weapons eventually destroyed most of human civilization.[16] This book relates to murdering because it talks about war. Also,  this book argues that if we let too much murdering happen, the world will be a chaos and all the people will start killing each other.[17]

 

The Road to Memphis by Mildred D. Taylor represents Black / coloured citizens struggling to live in a country ruled and dominated exclusively by white people. A girl called Cassie, who is a Black citizen, needs to help her best friend, Moe to go to Chicago to escape from the sheriff. Moe fatally injured 3 white men because they said bad things about him in Mississippi. Emotionality is probably the main problem of Moe which drove him to injure the 3 white men. Emotions are highly complex and subtle phenomena whose explanation requires careful and systematic analysis of their multiple characteristics and components.[18] Emotions are something people think they can recognize when they see them, yet it is difficult to define them.[19] Anger, happiness, sadness, jealousy are examples of emotions.  These emotions can lead you to do anything, especially anger or jealousy (and other negative emotions). For example, if a certain person was angry with another person, he / she may start a fight, bullying, revenge or worse, murder.

 

  1. Digging Deeper

According to the Christianity, “If humans commit to a sin, they are supposed to die. But God was kind enough so he spared Adam and Eve by killing an animal in their place. According to the bible, Cain, the first son of Adam and Eve, killed his little brother Habel because he was jealous (Genesis 4, Verse 8)[20]. This can be counted as a homicide. Now, isn’t Cain supposed to die? In the bible, Cain was exiled from his family and his land and fled (Genesis 4, Verse 16).[21] In Christianity this was the first documented homicide.”

 

According to Hindu religion, righteousness or Dharma, is the basis of both individual commitment and social responsibilities,[22] meaning that hindus live with full of responsibility to their Deva and Devi. “He who understands his duty to society truly lives. All others shall be counted among the dead,” was noted in Tirukural, a Hindu scripture in Tamil language.[23] Meanwhile, Hindu philosophy rests on three important doctrines—karma, ahimsa, and samsara. Karma is defined as the set of deeds, good or bad, one “collects” throughout one’s life. Ahimsa denotes non-violence or do-no-harm. Samsara refers to life now or in the future. In relation to the homicide, Hindu people have to live a responsible life meaning that they will be held responsible for other people’s deaths. Hinduism does not approve of homicide.

 

We can also look at this topic from a scientific perspective and investigate all the specific scientific processes taking place after or before a homicide. The chart below is the result of an experiment where scientists recorded what happens to a dead body.[24]

 

TimelineWhat happens
24-72 hrs after deathInternal organs begin to decompose.
3-5days after deathBody starts bloating.  Blood-containing foam begins to exits from mouth and nose.
8-10 days after deathMassive decomposition organs in abdomen accumulate massive gas; body turns from green to red because of blood decomposition.
Several weeks after deathNails and teeth begin to fall out.
1 month after deathBody starts to become fluid.

 

Bodies that were buried secretly by the murderer will be hard for the police especially 1 month or more after death.

 

David Icke developed the idea that the moon is not a gigantic piece of rock but it is some sort of construct a hollowed-out planetoid. What could prove this true is the unlikely chance that what are the chances that the moon just happens to exactly cover the sun during an eclipse. Basically, what Icke wants to say is that the moon is just like a gigantic satellite which has a machine inside it.[25]

 

Speaking of homicide, isn’t killing animals counted as homicide? “Animal sacrifice is practiced on a big scale in Bali, close to the culture prevailing in Bengal. Balinese Hindu priests conduct a ceremony which began with killing and burying a dog in the front. Then, a pig was roasted, grilled, worshipped and buried. They killed fifty chickens, burying them in the various corners of the building. I had requested all of this not to be done, but I was told it had to be done according to the local traditions, that animal sacrifice is an integral part of any big ceremony. We had to follow the customs; we were told that if we did not, and something untoward were to happen later on, we would be blamed for it.”[26] But is that actually true? On one hand, according to The Universal Declaration of Animal Rights, “All animal life has the right to be respected.”[27] which means is not right to kill animals. But on the other hand, “if it is necessary to kill an animal, it must be instantaneous, painless and cause no apprehension.”[28]

 

In Chicago in 2012, the homicide rates in the poor Black areas were twice as high as the rates in the white areas. The problem of racial discrimination creates areas of poverty. For example, the bombing and burning of the homes of Blacks who moved into white neighborhoods. In some areas, children are likely to grow up without parents or with one parent, be abused and bullied and become d to alcohol and drugs. Having more police won’t make a difference. From poor Black neighborhoods to middle-class white neighborhoods, we’ve tolerated for decades. In 2010, 52% of murders in Chicago city occurred in a few areas. This problem can be addressed most effectively through social, political, and economic revitalization of neighborhoods.[29]

 

 

  1. Forever in peace?!

Here is a poem that two of our team mates wrote:

  Membunuh

Dulu ku pikir kau teman ku

Ku pikir kau baik

Ku pikir kau menghargai ku

Ku pikir kau senang bersama ku

Tetapi ku salah

 

Kau itu musuh ku

Kau itu buruk

Kau itu tidak menghargai ku

Kau itu tidak senang bersama ku

Kau itu mau membunuhku

Tetapi kau gagal

Mengapa orang berpura-pura menjadi teman anda?

 

Kau, kau orang ku dulu kenal

Kau dulu kupercayai

Kau dulu kuhormati

Kau dulu kucintai

Tetapi saya salah tentangmu

 

Kau berdiri dihadapanku

Kau menyembunyi penyesalan dalam jiwamu

Kau getar dengan rasa takut

Kau mengeluarkan senjata

Kegelapan mengisi mataku kau, kau hidup dalam dosa

 

There are a few steps that need to be done if we want to solve this problem in the CH way:

  1. Identify the problem
  2. Weight the criteria
  3. List the alternatives
  4. Compose and analyze
  5. Recognize the pattern

After following these steps, it could be easier to make a decision.[30] These steps can also be used to solve a murder case or other crimes.

 

One way to avoid injuries/homicide is by learning a martial art as a matter of self-defense.  Martial arts are beautiful to watch but they can also be used to kill people for example Silat which originated in Malaysia. The warriors  have a unique way of fighting; it is one of the most deadly martial arts and it is all about violence. Silat is an ancient art with no clear beginning/history, though some masters believe it was created by watching the movements of animals. This makes sense because the fighting style is all about exploiting weaknesses in your enemy and incapacitating them as quickly as possible.[31]

 

Kung Fu is actually the general name for all Chinese martial arts. There is a variety of styles, but they all share the same root: Striking your opponent with lightning speed and unstoppable power. Monks were once the guardians of Kung Fu.

 

The Korean fighting style known as Taekwondo is possibly the most popular martial art in the world. It is easily the most popular martial sport. But that hides its roots as a deadly form of combat. The name literally means “the art of kicking and punching.”[32]

Japan is the home of Karate, one of the most popular martial arts today. Unlike other forms that focus on a single body part or form of combat, Karate incorporates the whole body. Punching, kicking, elbows and throws.

 

Israelis are no strangers to conflict; therefore, it might not seem strange that that Israel has its own martial art, called Krav Maga. It is also one of the deadliest martial arts in the world. There is no spiritual journey, no harmony to be achieved in Krav Maga. This fighting technique only has one aim which is disarming, disabling and destroying your enemies.[33]

 

  1. A Solution to a Better World

The solution to this case is to educate humans about religion, history, sympathy and empathy towards other people, especially at school. If we do not educate humans about this the probability of this problem being solved is quite low especially when humans cannot socialize. Socializing is one important thing to do in a discussion. If one person is talking about the solution for  murder while another person is talking about kidnapping, they wouldn’t connect or solve anything, since their thoughts are different.

 

Another way is getting help from the government. With the lack of protection from the government, we may feel uncomfortable. As it is written in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 3, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person”. Therefore, we have the right to get protection from the government. It’s the 21st century, time to get on with technology. Every person has to have empathy and sympathy towards other people. Without sympathy and empathy, we can conclude that a person has no morality and conscience. Without conscience, a person cannot live correctly.
