I wonder if the experience of watching someone die is similar to (not equal to) killing someone. Anyone with experience with both of these matters? I’m certain there’s a difference, but I imagine that having watched someone die, you are more capable to make decisions related to survival than someone who has never watched a person die. Likewise, I imagine someone who has taken a life is even more capable to make decisions that preserve their own life.
Basically, this stems from people making stupid decisions in horror flicks. Deep, I know.
