Do you save 200 Rapists, or 300 Murderers?


Imagine that two boats are sinking, and no one on board them knows how to swim. One ship is full of 200 rapists, the other 300 killers. You are the only one with the knowledge and tools to stop the sinking, and you only have time to save one craft. Which boat (if either) do you save? Why?

    Very compassionate answer. I wish all humans were so benevolent.

    Would you still save a killer if that person had murdered a family member of yours? And you were sure that it was them who had done it?

    Thanks for the input, DarkestDreams. If you had to pick between 300 rapists and 200 murderers, would your answer be the same (save the killers)?
