the world we live in is full of funny things besides we see and hear very unpalatable things these days .what would you make of a reprt in the news recently of a man who was arrested stealing from 2 victims of a hit and run driver?The two victimswere supposedly hit by a driver who refused to stop but the first man on the scene before the arrival of the paramedics instead of helping the injured men decided to help himself by emptying their pockets,luck however ran out on him when the cops arrived and caught him in the act.isnt that bizzare?would you do same if you were the first person on the scene?

By no means would I do that. Omg what kind of mindset do you need to do that? *shudders at the thought of what could nurture that kind of mindset*

That really depends on a persons values. You know, many times I had the opportunity to steal something and get away with it, and a rush of adrenaline would get in my bloodstream every time, but I never could do it. It's just all the principles I have, I know how it is to get robbed and it's not pleasant at all.

YES Principle you are very correct ,good principle help us a lot in this kind of situation but i think a lot of people todayhave lost consciousness of principle and as such they will do just about anything without thinking twice

I would never rob anyone. It would not matter to me if they were dying or not. I'm glad the cops were able to catch them.

no nooo way. I would never do this. I would feel too guilty, and that's just not right to do. I would try to help them, and me sure the paramedics are coming. stealing from them is the last thing I do, they're already having a bad day... thanks for the question I found it interesting

Hi there Byola! That's really sad news. I will never do that. I think that it's good that the policemen caught him in the act. Thinking about it, maybe he has a really great need for it to do such a desperate act.
