The people that Shelton killed are considered combatants because they support they governmental system and work with it. Based on Just War Theory, the proportionality of killing these people is that their deaths are outweighed by the justice that will bring to the judicial system. Shelton believes the system to be corrupt, focusing instead on conviction rates rather than making sure the right person is placed behind bars. By killing these people Shelton can put a new mindset into the “system” because those affected by the killings will want the right man punished rather since they now know how it feels to be wronged.

Furthermore, Islam should fear of God so that Joseph in Koran would mention God at first to warn master’s wife. It seems like God in Koran directly tells His people what should do and what should not. People who believe in Koran seem like don’t have much free will than people in bible cause they have to obey what God said.
