Do you understand that question and answer? How do the population
*or* the number of manslaughterers affect the number of arei miklat
needed? Surely the only determinant is geography. A manslaughterer
has to cover the same distance regardless of how sparse the population,
or how careful they are.

the street and commands me to surrender my purse,
I have a right to kill him without asking questions
