Now, most people would say that they would rather have a thousand guilty men go then jail one innocent man. But would you be able to do it if you are given the choice and you must make it? Hypothetical Situation: You wake up one day and you're in the middle of a courtroom. An all-knowing, all-powerful being approaches you and confronts you with a situation. The man on trial is about to be found guilty but he is actually innocent. This all-powerful being then gives you a list of 1,000 guilty men who are currently in federal prisons around the country. Their charges range from drug production to murder to rape to counterfeighting. He tells you that you must decide, will this person be found guilty and the 1,000 men will remain in jail, or will this person be found not-guilty and the 1,000 men released into the public with their charges pardoned? Oh yah, and if you don't make a decision, they are all released and the innocent man goes to jail. Things to think about: How important is it that you don't have to feel like you sent someone away that is innocent? Are you willing to take the chances with the 1,000 felons being released? Do you feel like it is your fault if these 1,000 felons do anything bad?
