What would you do?

Postby llipgh2 on Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:38 am

I can understand this seems heartless and cruel.

But I also understand the fear that led to this. The couple may be old, or may have been robbed, or may have thought a scheme to get into the house.

I'm thinking if they knew the woman the outcome would have been different.

Me, living by myself, I probably would have done the same thing.

I read that earlier and have no problem with it. They called the authorities to come help her, and I'm sure they kept an eye on her in case someone else came.

The only thing I probably would have doen different was to talk to her an comfort her and maybe give her a blanket, like it says in the article if I felt uncomfortable.

Yeah I don't think they did anything wrong here. You want to help, but not at the chance of your loved ones' safety. Reminds me of the stories where there's an accident, people laying in the street, and the person drives by, looks in their rearview, and sees the same people sitting up with others coming out of the bushes.

I've actually been in a broadly similar situation as that in the past. While I don't think what the couple did was necessarily 'wrong'........ well, I'll just say I disagree with their choice of action, and leave it at that.
