This thread is vital. It want to hear what most of you would do. Don't go with the crowd, state your own opinion. Respond Honestly.
Scenario 1: You are shopping in a market with a relative. You and your relative are busy selecting ripe fruits, when someone with a shopping cart
tries to pass, but has no space. So he asks about 2 or 3 times to move to the side politely. You and you relative do not pay attention. He gets
aggravated and quickly thrusts his cart into you repeatedly, to get your attention. He hurts your right arm, and the right side of your stomach, to a
point where it will get bruised. How would you respond?
Scenario 2: A berserk gunman shot and killed three pedestrians at a nearby Mall. He then ran. The police subdued someone who fit the description, and
placed him under arrest. They then asked you to come down to the station and judge him. They let you talk to him for about 10 minutes. You ask many
questions to this man. But he cannot respond, you wonder why. He has a sad expression on his face. Times up, the police want a straight fowar answer,
Should he be locked up? Or let free? How would you respond?
Scenario 3: A neighbor discovered an infant who had been beaten. The neighbor rushed the infant to the hospital. The infant later died as a direct
result of the injuries. Investigation revealed that the mother was responsible. The mother was not considered mentally competent, and the district
attorney did not wish to prosecute. So they called you in due to your expertise. They wanted you to decide what to do with the mother of the now dead
infant. What would you do?
Scenario 4: You and your wife/husband get into an argument. Your spouse runs and grabs a gun. He/she shoots you intentionally and severely wounds
you. You get a chance to grab the gun, and you do. You then have the gun pointed right at him/her. Whats your next move?
Scenario 5: A man was in a fight on the second floor of a building. During the fight, he was knocked through a window and fell to his death. No
arrest was made. Do you think this is fair?
Scenario 6: While playing cards, two men got into an argument. The first man attacked the second with a broken bottle. The second man pulled a gun
and killed the first. The police arrested the shooter; he claimed self-defense. The police found no other witnesses. Fair or not?
Scenario 7: A police officer answered a bank alarm and surprised the robber coming out of the bank. The robber saw the responding officer and fired
at him. The officer returned fire, killing the robber. The officer was charged in a court of record as a matter of routine in such cases. Fair?
Scenario 8: When a gunman entered a store and attempted to rob the proprietor, the storekeeper shot and killed the felon. You were chosen to judge
him. Guilty? Or free of charges?
Scenario 9: While two juveniles were playing with a gun, one playfully pointed it at the other. The youth pointing the gun fired it and killed the
other. At the time of arrest, the juvenile claimed no knowledge of the gun being loaded. Would you let the child free of charges?
This last one might be a little hard it is also related to a recent news story.\
Scenario 10: You see this man, beating the young child. There is no one there except you, the man, and the child. No eye witnesses. You have a
revolver in your hand, it is loaded, and you raise it. The revolver is pointing right at the man who has no knowledge of you being there. You can stop
the man at any time, but if you shoot him, and he dies, you go to jail for murder.
Unless you hide, get rid of, the body(bodies), the car, and the evidence. How will you respond?
These are all real life scenarios. They also can happen to your or to a friend, obviously. People face these hard questions every day. How they
choose is there choice, and should not be judged. After all these are some tough questions. We might choose a different answer than we would in real
life. We all understand. Thanks for your time!
