To the Gent who believes that Burke is punished for his crimes in the deleted scene (I won't add my edit back in just yet, just want to clarify his beliefs)

Honestly, don't you think that sack of sh#t slimeball got off EASY?

He *didn't* have to tearfully beg for a bullet to the head, still wanting to live but terrified that he has to endure exploding in an agonizing and humiliating mess if he doesn't get one, sobbing in grief and regret for being robbed of his hopes and dreams and the chance to have a happy life either way.

I'm actually glad that scene was cut; because by giving that scumbag Burke his undeserved mercy and NOT letting him know exactly how it felt like to be one of his victims, Ellen Ripley has slapped the dignity of 157 Innocent People in the face, and *cheated* them of the justice that they deserved.

That's wild misuse of Karma Houdini. He still, you know, died. Not to mention deleted scenes are irrelevant.

Why was Burke's scripted death a Karma Houdini? Because he still avoided having to take responsibility for his actions by not having to know first hand how his victims have suffered. Justice was still not served.
