If you commit the crime of starving a child, does that make you a bad person? Or are you committing a crime out of necessity? That is a good question to answer. Furthermore, it is a difficult question to answer.
For humans, one of the most important things is children. Every child is precious and important. People love and protect children. If there is a child who is shivering from the cold, everyone will help that child. One can even take off a jacket for a shivering child. If there is a hungry child, everyone there will try to help that child eat something. This is a fact and this fact does not change whether you are in Turkey, Japan, the UK, Egypt or any other country in the world. It’s normal to help a starving child, and if someone doesn’t help a starving child, it’s not normal.
But if you commit the crime of starving a child, does that make you a bad person? Well, I really don’t think so! Feeding and helping a hungry child doesn’t make someone a bad person. On the contrary, it makes you a good person. If you don’t help a starving child, that’s what makes you a bad person. Whoever sees a child starving should help that child. That is the right thing to do.
But on the other hand, crime is a crime. If you are in a crime, it means you are guilty. If you sin to feed a starving child, it doesn’t make you a bad person but it does mean you are committing a crime and it makes you guilty. But you are in a crime of necessity because feeding a hungry child is a necessity.
For this reason, if you commit the crime of helping a child, it makes you a good person but also makes you guilty. The police will arrest you and take you to court. In court, the judge will listen to you and decide your sentence. If the judge finds you guilty of helping a child, they probably won’t give you a heavy sentence. Even if you are committing a crime, if you are lucky, you will not be severely punished for aiding a child to commit a crime. If you are a very nice person, you should take the risk of helping a child, whether it is a crime or not.
