Ugh, look at this coddler. I bet you think taking a kids nintendo is cruel and unusual. Yes it's punishment for being a dumbass. That's how it works. You associate pain with bad behavior and while I can't speak through experience Im pretty reasonably well sure getting pistol whipped hurts a lot less than shooting yourself in the fucking face.

hopefully isn't good enough when you're teaching gun safety, fuck up pointing a gun in a safe direction and it's justified to hit someone
>>

sounds like you just wanted to complain because they don't give you anything else to do in your nursing home, get well soon gramps!
>>
>>210290862
>entirely unnecessary
I think associating pointing a pistol at your face with a negative memory is a pretty fucking good reason to smack someone
>>
>>210293407
unnecessary to disarm her. if you ran it through a million times with a different gun range instructor each time I think you'd find while they may all not pistol whip her they'd all take the gun out of her hand
>>
>>210293550
>gun range instructor
A gun range instructor won't slap you because you're a paying customer, not because they don't want to or think it's too harsh a punishment.
>>
>>210293234
I admit i'm not familiar with guns and i agree with you if this is reoccurring behavior. But If this is the first time that they are making this kind of mistake i do think making sure they actually understood the instructions is a lot more effective imo than physical punishment which might make ill intent through confusion surface. Just my thoughts, i do realize the gun injuries are far worse than a slap.

in the context of the story the "girls" are like animals or objects

>>210293725
>>210293854
I'm aware, I'm just suggesting that if we're talking about each step of the equation one literally removes the immediate threat on her life and the other is a punishment. Maybe entirely unnecessary wasn't a great way to describe it but fuck I just think it's damn funny
>>
>>210293730
>and i agree with you if this is reoccurring behavior
once is too many times
>making sure they actually understood the instructions is a lot more effective imo than physical punishment
the instructions are so incredibly simple that literal children can and have followed them, if you're too stupid to not understand how to not point a gun at people you're too stupid to use a gun
t taught rifle and shotgun shooting at a scout camp

>>210293725
>A gun range instructor won't slap you because you're a paying customer,
they absolutely will tackle you to the ground and take the gun from you and they will not be gentle about it

I understand your stance, but say this person is, without your knowledge, very emotionally unstable which is causing this behavior. And say your punishment pushes this person over the edge and in the heat of the moment or in his anger, which you made well up, this person actually takes up a gun once he gets the chance a hurts another student/bystander with it. How do you prevent a situation like this in your class.

Ultimately Hirscher was a spineless coward who didn't lift a finger to even try to save Triela from her fate in any meaningful way. I'll never forgive him for what he let them do to her.

>>210311153

There was literally no way to save her from her fate, what are you on about, they were all dying and nobody could do anything about it.

He could have tried. If you really love someone you don't just accept their death, regardless of how inevitable it is. He could've taken her and ran. He could have stolen the secrets of the cyborg program, or money, or just the knowledge of their existence, and blackmailed them with it to guarantee safety for him and Triela. It might have been futile, sure, but he didn't even try. He just played the Agency's game right up until the end, knowing full well what would happen. Then he had the gall to be upset about it. He let her die.
>>
>>210311387
>ran
>blackmailed them with it
I think you misunderstood my point. The cyborgs are all dying from the aftereffects of the cyborg surgery, as far as I remember they only have like a year or two if they're lucky (Petra aside). Running or blackmailing the agency won't help, because what the agency is currently doing isn't the issue, it's already a done deal. Running would actually make it worse even if they succeeded, because agency has the best treatment to stall death off, it's the best place to be. Trying to blackmail would probably make it worse because they'd almost certainly notice and kill him (like they killed Claes' handler) and then there'd be nobody left there who cared about Triela. I'm pretty sure he explicitly goes through this exact thought process at one point, doesn't he?

If he stole the technical data package for the cyborg program or some fragment of it he could have defected to another nation like Russia and offered it to them in exchange for protection and them using the technology to prolong Triela's life. Of course the Agency would have hunted him down and tried to kill him, but he would still be a highly trained special operative with a superhuman cyborg assassin in tow. People have survived worse odds. And yes she was dying anyway because of the cyborg conversion, but her lifespan was still being actively reduced every time she went on a mission and was injured, as Hirscher observed. Even if he didn't get help for her and just escaped with her to live in the wilderness she would have at least lived a little longer than she did being purposefully exterminated in an impossible mission against well-armed terrorists orchestrated by the prime minster to cover up his own lose ends, as she eventually was.

Obviously to some extent I'm just being salty about Triela's death, but I thought the story set up her and Hirscher's arc to be even more interesting than it actually was. The Agency converted her to a cyborg without Hirscher's knowledge or consent, and then expected him to go along with it and be a loyal operative just because he had no other choice. But Hirscher never actually had any motivation to care about the Agency or the fight against Padania, he only ever cared about protecting Triela. I thought that was the perfect setup for him to betray the Agency at a critical moment and run off with Triela to try to save her, which would open up a whole new arc which would pit Triela against her fellow cyborgs and test her individual will and loyalty to her handler against her loyalty to the agency and its mission, which would have been really interesting subject matter. But instead Hirscher just blindly goes along with the Agency's mission until the very end even though it completely contradicts his own motivations, for no clear reason except apparently being too impotent to come up with any third alternatives, even though the consequence for failing any such alternative couldn't possibly be any worse than the fate that was guaranteed if he failed to even try.

To say the least I found it a disappointing waste of narrative potential. And on an emotional level, if Triela was going to die, he could have at least made her death meaningful. But he couldn't even give her that.
