"Blood money" nghĩa là gì?

'Blood money' nghĩa là tiền công cho kẻ giết mướn; tiền bồi thường cho gia đình của nạn nhân.

Ví dụ
A diving instructor in Khor Fakkan was fined Dh20,000 and was ordered to pay Dh200,000 in blood money to the family of his employee.

Former Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood and YouTube were accused of making blood money from the deaths of drill rappers fighting bloody gang wars.

Families of 18 Nepali migrant workers who died in road accidents in Saudi Arabia have received Rs 70 million blood money from the Saudi government.

U.S. Senate candidate Geoff Diehl made his criticisms shortly after Massachusetts law enforcement discovered a man who was offering $500 in blood money for anyone willing to kill an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent.

People have been sharing a beer to make a connection since the drink was invented. But, on the Earl Street Bridge over Interstate 94 in St. Paul, the desire to do just that may have saved a life.

On Wednesday, two beer delivery men were just making the rounds when they saw a man hanging onto the outside of a fence around the corner.

Once Gabel and his partner Kwame Anderson realized the man was suicidal (muốn tự tử, có thể dẫn đến thất bại (về kinh tế...)), Anderson called 911 and tried to talk him off the ledge.

For the next hour, the beer salesman made his pitch - even after police arrived.

After asking the man if he wanted to have a drink with him, Anderson ran to his truck and grabbed a 12-pack - and used it to lure (dỗ dành, quyến rũ; chim giả, cò mồi) him to safety.
