Check Yourself

I share with you an old moral test which my Canadian Aunt sent me, let me hear your opinion.

Moral to the end before making a judgement...This  test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.
Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

You are in London. There is chaos all around, you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.
This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photo-journalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless. 

You're  trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses, cars, boats and people swirling around you, some disappearing into the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
Suddenly, you see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris You move closer... Somehow, the man looks familiar....You suddenly realize who it is.... It's the Muslim Cleric, Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook handed bastard who hates non-Muslims and wants the UK to become an Islamic  state!!
You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

You  can save the life of Abu Hamza or you can shoot a dramatic photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most despised, evil men.

Now comes the Moral test question, pay attention and please give an honest answer.










Would you select your Nikon or, would you shoot the photo with the Leica?
