A user can kill (send a signal to) any of their own processes.

Root can kill (send a signal to) any process.

If you want all users to be able to kill a specific process you will have to write some wrapper:

Write a script which takes two parameters: start and kill. Start will start the process, kill will kill it. Make this script executable to everybody you want to be able to kill the process.

Either provide the wrapper with sudo to change to root or use the "setuid" bit on the wrapper.

Sorry, i left out the "sudo" bit from my answer. porter is correct of course.

Either you set up sudo or write a little C-program to include in the script and set the SUID bit for that, because scripts themselves are not allowed to carry the SUID bit.
