The Home Depot thread brings up an interesting question for me... let's say that we believe this guy and we even believe that the Home Depot employees knew that he was stuck there and chose not to help him (note, I'm not saying that they did it, only that they knew his situation and chose not to help him). Does he have a right to sue Home Depot, and should he have a right to sue Home Depot?
My opinion is no. I don't think it is reasonable given human nature for us to force someone to help others. If someone chooses to then props to them but I do draw the line at punishing someone for not helping others. I mean, should we punish someone for not stopping to help someone stuck on the road? Do we punish someone for not giving money to the homeless guy on the street? Do we punish ourselves as a society for not doing more to help the billions of people starving around the world? I'm curious of you guys have opinions on this and where do you draw the line? I put this thread in off-topic and not the political forum because I'm not interested in what the law is... I'm interested in what the opinion of my fellow G|A'ers are.
