The doctor clearly had to know the result of his actions. He's an "educated" man, holds a position of "professional responsibility", and
whatever his other circumstances, those things should have put nails in his coffin.
Btw, I deliberately put those words in quotes because I don't feel that education makes you in any way a better person and in fact may make you
worse, as is perhaps demonstrated here, and I don't feel that doctors are either professional or responsible, again as demonstrated here.
The young girl also knew that it was a stupid thing to do but she is a kid. Things happen in our youth and we learn from them. That's what being a
kid is about.
As the fine doctor has illustrated though, sometimes all the other stuff doesn't teach us a thing.
Putting this girl in prison and robbing her of her future serves no one.
Putting the doctor in prison and stripping him of his license to drive and to practice medicine (having clearly demonstrated a gross lack of judgment
and moral fortitude, as well as an inability to gauge his own abilities) would serve society much, much more. When you have a lot to lose and you
muck it up, you should bloody well lose it.
Our society is kinda screwed up when we're expected to be morally and ethically sound, to be responsible for ourselves and others, but those rights
and responsibilities are specifically denied until someone decides that they really do apply in this case but not in others...IT'S REALLY KIND OF
SCHIZOPHRENIC, is it not? How can you know? And the younger you are, the less you get said experience because people are always deciding things for
We need to sort ourselves out. If you're in an already underprivileged situation, it seems like the laws are always falling against you. If you're
already in a privileged position, the law always works for you. What sort of example is that from the upper crust? Why should it be this way? They
already have too much and they get to buy more still. Sick, sick world.
