OS Prof: "Just like when you kill a parent you kill all the children, when you kill a parent process you kill all the children threads, you can't have children running around."

  2. ^ He's saying that if you kill someone and then find out they have children, you have to kill their children as well so the children don't have to suffer through the pain of you having killed their parent(s). In practice, it turns out it's also a lot simpler in terms of legal retribution ;)
