Have you ever excuse or supported someone who victimized another because you did not like the person that was the victim or liked the person who did the victimizing more?
Have you ever supported, agreed with, or excused someone you like because you liked them, or someone you were not close to but what they did was against someone you did not like? For example say a person (we will call Mel and Gracie) on, your block (I know not all of you will fit the scenario but go on the premise) had fruit trees in their front yard, they also had no gate around their yard. You know for fact, as do most of the neighbors, they don’t pick the fruit, so it falls to the ground to rot and be discarded. A neighbor (we will call Linda) whom you like better than the home owners with the fruit trees, wanted to make a lemon bars for 45–60 people for some potluck function they were going to attend. This neighbor goes over and helps herself to lemons of the tree of the homeowner when he was not home. A second neighbor (we will call Maggie) chides Linda for stealing lemons from the tree. Linda counters that they never use the fruit, and let it rot anyway so they won’t even miss the fruit that she took, and it is going to a good cause. Maggie says that is no consequence, she had to go on the homeowner’s property without permission to take the fruit, again without permission; thus making it stealing. If Linda asked you if you thought she stole the lemons, what would you tell her? Because she has more favor with you then Mel and Gracie what would you tell her she was right or wrong to do what she did the way in which she did it? Would how you think change if the taken items were more than fruit, or had a store dollar value on it?
