Nearly all the Ark folks seem to dislike the idea of 'blood must have blood' because it is too violent, or they see it as indicative of the violent nature of the grounder. This seems strange since they were a community that killed anyone for any wrong doing. Their saying could basically be "Anything bad must have blood". It seems like they're much more violent than the grounders.

I feel like 'Blood must have blood' is more of a revenge motive, whereas people of the Ark use death as a punishment, more of a justice system.
