Another episode of Law & Order
One college student A goes into a library stairwell and sees his good
buddy B strangling the girl he got pregnant. Claims later he thought
they were having sex. 2nd guy B, in anger, insists 1st guy A knew what
he was doing.
A turns around and leaves. Finally forced to say what he saw.
Prosecutor 1 says there will be an outcry fro a good samaritan law
(meaning not the medical version where they are relieved of liability
but that they will be forced to do something when they see certain
crimes in progaess)
Prosecutor 2 says there is no way to make it constitutional.
Is that true? We can make a law that people have to pick up their dog poop but we can't make a law that people call the police when they see someone being murdered? Or that they come forward afterwards? Why?
"You shall not stand idly by the blood of your neighbor. I am the
Lord". Vayikra/Leviticus 19:16. I don't expect US law to echo Biblical law, but this seems like one example where it should.
