#23: Read the story of Richard Parker and Tom Dudley. Is what Dudley did defensible? What would you have done?
Answering this writing prompt straight after eating lunch was probably not the best idea but so they say, everything happens for a reason … even if it did turn my stomach twice over!
What Dudley did was in no way defensible and I wouldn’t even think of taking someone’s life simply to extend mine (as there was no way of knowing that by doing this, it would ‘save’ their lives indefinitely). Parker had only lived for 17 years, whereas the other three had already had a life, plus Parker most likely had the best chance of survival/recovery due to his young age. To think that this is actually something that really happened is simply revolting. I didn’t want to read on but I hope they all went to prison for killing an innocent human being!
