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?
Yes, if the murderer was in custody. But, my initial reaction would be to want that person to suffer a slow painful death, preferably at my hands. Honestly, when the victim is a loved one...emotions are a lot higher, and reason can diminish.
Yes.. Things are different when they're personal. I think it takes an exceptionally strong person to forgive someone who killed a person they know.
Many would definitely agree with this sentiment!
I think many would agree, Akriti. Thank you for your input!
