I'd kill him. it's harsh. it's the right move. no friggin way you could risk this guy running off to his buddies and bringing them back.....NO WAY! there is no other option.
There was an option when they first saved him. They opted to treat him as a POW. Now killing him is the smart thing to do.
I wouldn't 'forgive and forget' people who chained me up in a barn, beat the shit out of me for days with the threat of death hovering over my head. It would be hard for me to view them as any more righteous than the lunatics I was already running with.
It's obvious at this point the only reason they pulled him off that fence was a decision made soley to ease Rick's self righteous conscience. If they wanted to save him, they would have treated him entirely different. It was stupid as **** to bring him back to their camp with anything other than the intent to save him.
As for running with a group of lunatics... I think most people would rather survive with lunatics than die. Hell, the fact that they're lunatics means 'leaving' alive might not be an option.
