READ: Moral Question: You are out on a nice day and are unlucky. You are caught in a mass shooting. The shooter fires their gun at you?

There is no time to run away or duck but you could grab another person to use as a human shield. You could be hit and survive or hit and die, but if you use another person as a human shield then imagine that they will die and you will definitely come out of the situation alive.

Do you use grab the other person and use them as your human shield?

If the person you grabbed to use as a human shield so you would survive and you are probably why that other person died (because the shooter shot at you and the other person had a good chance of escaping if you didn't grab them), then would that make you a murderer?

Is it wrong for a person to save themselves from a bad situation for sacrifice unwilling people so that they may live? Every living thing in nature wants to keep living. Therefore, wasn't it not right to use whatever was around even another, to avoid death?

It was not your fault. You were going about your day and found yourself in a random unlucky situation. You weren't going to let yourself die that day so you just used someone as a human shield. It's not wrong to live. Is it?

Would you have any guilt? Would you feel you were a murderer because you are probably why that person died because it was suppose to be you?

Maybe they had children or a family, or many people that would miss them. Those people will be sad and will never see that person again. But their unwilling sacrifice meant you got to live and everyone you know and care about are happy that you're alive. Is it selfish of you to live by making them an unwilling sacrifice and now all the people they love feel hurt?

Is the mass shooter entirely to blame? You only wanted to live and didn't want to die. You wouldn't have had to use another human as your shield to survive if that hadn't happened.

Thoughts?
