take smb.'s life

take smb.'s life
убить кого-л

Next to murder, the worst offence a slave could commit was to run away. Then the legislation would outlaw him and any free white that met him might kill him on sight. To steal a Negro was felony. To take his life while punishing him was not. (W. Foster, ‘Outline Political History of the Americas’, book I, ch. V) — Самым тяжким преступлением раба (если не считать убийства) был побег. Беглый негр считался вне закона, и любой свободный белый мог убить его без предупреждения. Кража негра была уголовным преступлением. Убийство же негра во время наказания преступлением не считалось.
