Would Judge Dredd be considered Light Side or Dark Side?

Is it wrong for a lion to eat a helpless sheep?

Do I get good karma for eating tofu and bad karma for eating crunchy chicks? Er wait...

Is it light side or dark side to pull a vegetable off life support?

In the end, I don't believe that "light side" and "dark side" are arbitrary placeholders for "good" and "evil," because every society has a different definition of what good & evil are.

With that in mind, I believe that "light vs dark" is more of a personal thing that varies with the individual. For an Imperial Agent, who's job is to eliminate troublemakers without questions (for the greater good of the Empire), then "mercy killing" may well be "light" for them - especially when compared to torture.

And keep in mind that the people in the Empire are still people, and if saving the lives of it's innocent citizens from the Republic means blowing up a Republic troop transport, then is definitely "light side" for an Imperial to do exactly that.
