Negligence and the Duty of Care?


people are obligated to help and provide care to another person?

We would not have homelessness or people dying from hunger, etc.. if there's such a thing as Duty of Care?


Duty to rescue only applies if you're either the one that caused the hazardous situation that affected someone or a range of "if you're a parent you have a duty to rescue your non adult children".

I guess if they get caught up in lying about not helping someone or be caught on camera not rendering assistance in an emergency would be a way to enforce it, but it goes without saying we shouldn't need a law to be decent human beings. It's a shame we do.

Hence the point of them making the proposal.

Oh yeah, this is a great idea. There's NO WAY this will be abused or have problems. And there'll be no scope creep or government overreach either. With this in play no one will ever be in court for "not reporting failure to recycle" and crime will GO DOWN.

That Mars colony can't come too soon.

Exactly the opposite problem would exist. Being that it would be extremely difficult to prove in any case that you don't record yourself mishandling the situation.

I'm sorry, I don't really understand what you mean.

Are you saying I'd have trouble defending myself in court on the charge of "not reporting X"? That was my point, it will criminalise people who don't get to their cellphone in time.

Or did you mean it would be hard to prove a crime HAD taken place so the law is meaningless? In which case why bother (I know why - it'll creep in scope and apply to other things, the UK's RIPA powers for anti-terrorism are a classis example).

If you don't think this will creep, there's a guy in Scotland, Count Dankula, being prosecuted for a joke video. The Scottish government prosecutor said that they (the government) decide what the context of the joke was an not the joke teller, therefore if the government says it's Hate Speech, then it's Hate Speech and the joke teller goes to jail for his joke.

If you think this is a harmless or pointless thought experiment in legal theory then I really hope you're right and I would be very happy to be proved wrong when / if the law becomes real and is applied in the real world to real situations.
