To the people who think this was a good thing to do, yes ultimately he saved the life of a kitten, and didn’t cause an accident as far as we can tell.
But that’s the absolute best case scenario.
On a busy highway with rain and wet ground, it was incredibly dangerous and stupid, could’ve caused more deaths than the one in the link.
I would happily, with a smile and sense of pride, cause an accident of... Name a number with as many children as you want, babies even. You can walk me through the wreckage or have me listen to the grieving families. No problems. I would not hesitate to plead guilty to it either and have no qualms about the sentence or time served whether it be 90 days or a lifetime. Even for just a single kitten like this person did in the video.
I have literally struggled with the thought of saving a family member over a pet. Thankfully that never had taken place either, I am sure I would help or rescue my pets first. I know my roomate would be on his own if my pets were not safe.
I would do this and I would do it without hesitation. I would not have even been that standoffish in the video either. I would have even got infront of that motor cyclist that passed.
I would rather take the chance saving the kitten over letting it get run over. Every. Single. Time.
Life is equal but animals are not nearly as selfish greedy condescending controversial annoying self imposing nosey opinionated sarcastic egotistical narcissistic destructive lieing manipulative bundles of vocal instincts with little to no sense of loyalty filled with various form of racism from skin color to pant color and what kind of haircut you have.
1 kitten life is worth more to me than any death statistic (amount of human life) you have to offer. That includes any war or any disease that plagued the earth.
Fuck people. After recent events in my life I hope more tragedy strikes in whatever form it pleases so less people will be around. Best outcome for me is many die either directly or indirectly saving animals. Directly being somethig like "man dies keeping dog afloat" indirectly being what you described. Dieing in an accident because someone elses choice.
