Phl 318 Section 43205 Let’s say a man who in his past has committed countless murders and has an addiction to the “thrill of the kill” realizes that he does not want to kill anymore but is only compelled by his addiction. You find him on the top of a roof and you know what his past sins are. He tells you he is ready to jump and that he cannot live life like this any longer. As he is giving his last moments speech you realize that you are close enough to him that you may be able to pull him off the ledge before he jumps. If you save his life none of his past actions will be accounted for due to the lack of evidence and because he is psychotic he is most likely to see the saving of his life as a sign that God is in approval of his misdeeds and he may continue pursuing his greatest pleasure. However, if you let him fall then not only will you witness a gruesome suicide but also you notice that there are some people watching from the next building over and from their angle of vision and the distance between you and the murderer, they might just think that you’re the one who pushed him off the ledge. So what can be done here? Saving this man can be disastrous in the future and by letting him die you risk your own well being but save many people’s lives in the future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
