Surrender etiquette

I surrender ..

"Please don't kill me - I have a wife and children back home!"

Good answer: 

"I accept your surrender. Private Smith, you don't look too busy - guard this captive till relieved."

Bad answers:

1. "She'll get over it - find someone new. They always do ..."  (opens fire).

2. "You should have thought about that before now ..."   (opens fire)

3. "Yep, if I had the resources to guard you, and if I trusted you ..."  (opens fire)

Avoiding atrocities is a logistical nightmare.
