Is this justified?

Middle-class man has nine year old daughter.
daughter is diagnosed for luekemia.

2 treatment options are available:

1. Bone Marrow Transplant(BMT) - one time cost of $150,000
2. New drug on the market - monthly cost of $25,000 for life


The Health Insurance company decides to go with BMT. But as luck would have it, a suitable donor is not found till date.

The father pleads the Health Insurance company to try out option No.2 (new drug), to no avail.

The father then meets with the insurance manager (who cast the deciding vote against giving his daughter the new drug) personally to reconsider giving his daughter a chance with the new drug. If no treatment is given the daughter faces certain death within 6-12 months.

The health insurance manager simply says NO.

The father then sees the manager as the stumbling block in way of his daughters right to LIFE.
He kills the Insurance manager.


Is the killing justified?

No killing(other than execution for condemned killers) for whatever be the reason is justified. Period.

And it is stupid in this case too, because the new manager will definitely hold grudge against the father for killing his co worker when he takes the decision.

actually, after this killing, the Health insurance company decided to give the new drug.

So what do you say now?

Well speechless to say the least.

Well is the life of leukemia patient so important so as to waste two lives? One that of the person who was killed and the other the killer (who is bound to spend the good part of his remaining life behind bars).

but when he kills the manager, dont he know that everyone else will hate him and have grudge against him and not help him, and it is true that if he kills manager, he will be in jail and then no one will kill a toss about his daughter.

my feeling (& the story writers too) is that the people will rather sympathize with him, not have a grudge.

That is why the Jury could not reach a verdict (on Law & Order,NBC)
