        Hi Guys and Dolls,

        Here is the scene:

        Your driving along a road late at night and there is not a car for miles. I out of the blue someone bolts in front of your car on foot. The person instantly dies from the impact. It appears that it was suicide on the part of the pedestrian.

        If reported, you will go to prison for manslaughter. No one is around for miles and your able to leave the scene and never get caught.

        Would you turn yourself in?

        I know i would drive away if i knew i wasn't gonna get caught, who wants to spend the rest of there life in prison.

        I am sure the guilt down the road would eat at me and who knows what might happen then, but at that very split second of the accident..i am sure i would drive away.

        You would get caught.  The police are very good at tracking situations like this down.  Call 911 and fess up.

        This hyothetical......you will not get caught.....and if you tell you will go to prison...there is no grey area!

        So, this is the Bad Choice-Bad Choice ethical dilema?  In that case...I drive off.

        I think either way i would feel like i was in prison. If tell i will rot in a cell. If i don't i will be in a internal hell guilt.

        Its a tuff situation but i think i would drive off too.

        Damn we are bad huh?

        Lips, your questions are always so tricky!!  ::) ::)
        If a person was already died and there was no chance to help, save him/her I'd go away! But in the same time I believe in retribution! I'm not sure that I could live as it was before...Soon or later people get their just punishment! Prison might not be the most serious and sever punishment...what about remorse!?

        Hi Phib,

        I have to agree with you. The guilt and remorse to take someones life is far greater than a prison cell.

        Either way..........we lose.

        i dont think we can allow ourselves to believe remorse is the greater punishment..if someone ran down your daughter while you were drinking and driving, i don't think someone's excuse of 'but I feel realllllly bad' would cut it, lol
        plus, who gets to decide if the feeling  or level of guilt is adequate

        13oclock,

        No amount of remorse is going to soothe a grieving family. A punishment for their actions should definately be inforced.

        Reflecting on our own internal struggle for causing the death of another person and choosing a course of action. It was an accident and it was not due to negligence....unfortunately in the eyes of the law it would be considered murder. That in itself is considered unfair.

        As for the question about remorse...It think it completely depends on a person! There are people who don't even know what it is! But for others it can be even worse than prison...I couldn't live calmly, happily knowing that I killed someone by accident, "stole" someone's husband, child, sister....

        Well lips the question is kind of off kilter. The cops would come, if you aren't drunk or high on drugs and calmly reported what occured, I cannot see manslaughter charges beuing pressed...

        I couldn't live a lie.  I am the queen when it comes to being "ANTI-POLICE"  I would definitely call them in this case.  It really is just an accident.  It would be involuntary manslaughter at the most.  I keep thinking of Karma, if I did run something horrible would probably happen to someone I love.
