In practical terms, our VC is to have a townie survive the game. We don't know who our teammates are, and we don't know how many of us there are. But we do know that there are at least two and maybe three non-town teams. In a game of sixteen players with two town dead already, that does not leave us enough to risk lynching one of them just because he was the easiest for you to push a lynch on. The case on Lassie is as good as any, but that's mainly because you guys can't help but be a huge distraction, and nobody is picking up major scum points in this mess. If you're proven to be on our side, then you've got a free hand to kill as you see fit. You won't be Mr Popular if you hit Lassie and he shows up town, but you won't get lynched for it like you would if you were unresolved.
