    Bad: Hero loses life saving a woman and her child from a mugger

    Saw this and it made me really think. A recent discussion involving whether or not we should should others is emphasised by this trajedy. The victim stopped a mugging where a woman was stabbed multiple times, and was himself stabbed after giving chase. His intentions were noble, but I cant help but wonder on the results if he had not chased after the suspect. Sometimes, the best choice is to not take a particular action I think. Regardless, this good samaritan gave his life to save two others, and that is the real lesson in humanity.
