9. If someone's job is to kill you

and keep you from being free, then nothing that you do to those people is wrong.
If he just tried to sneak away, and they saw him, they would have shot him dead with no hesitation. He made the decision that his life and freedom were important. And I don't blame him at all. I'd kill to protect my own life and freedom. Any sane person would.

If the defector has any family left in North Korea, I'd imagine that they are now dead. It's very sad, but when you have a psychotic regime like that, your life hangs by a thread. There are no protections for the people from their government.
