In answer to your question, I think murderers, rapists, pedophiles, anyone with the capacity to be immune to suffering etc., isn't deserving of being saved. These people are just a waste of resources and a drain on the rest of society.

Don't worry I'm not going to be offended by people on a forum questioning my views. I have very strong (and sometimes a bit unconventional) views, and I'm used to having people questioning them.

That's interesting. I can understand that, except for immune to suffering - do you mean someone who isn't bothered by other people's suffering, or someone who can endure suffering? :U

And thanks for not taking me the wrong way. c: I like to have discussions and over the internet sometimes I sound a little snippy because of the tone gap.

But what if the person you saved is a murderer/rapist?

That is why this question is tough, because there are soooo many different situations.

I agree, this is way too situational. I marked animal, because if its pet vs stranger, my pet would always win out. If its severely injured animal over very mildly injured person, then why the hell isn't he getting himself out? /grabs animal. Now, if its my husband or best friend in there, then hopefully I can throw a pet over my other shoulder on the way out.
