I have respect for both stances. Both Frank and Pianodwarf embrace worldviews in which the welfare of others is paramount, and is the motivating force behind their actions.
I have to say, though, that while I can respect the principle of Frank's stance as you've voiced it above, I take issue with Frank's propensity to blame pianodwarf for the loss of the busdriver's job.
One of my pet peeves is this culture we (at least, that I'm aware of in the USA) have re: "protecting each other" even when it's not deserved. Example: I have a lot of respect for police officers in general (and I'm friends with several), but when I heard about a particular junior . . crap, what's it called again?? high-school age kids pre-training for the police. Anyway, these impressionable youngsters were spoken to by the chief of a particular town, who said in these words "You will *never* bust another cop for DWI." Meaning, regardless of whether they commit the offense, cops don't bust other cops for DWI. (note: the person who told me this is, in fact, known for lying absurdly, but other similar anecdotes support this, I won't get into them here unless requested)
I'm sorry, but if your job is to enforce the law and protect me, I expect *at least* the same standard of law that's applied to me, to be applied to YOU--if not moreso, because you should be setting the example! That Ol' Boyz attitude irks me to no end...
...Just as Frank's posts in this thread, where he rails against pianodwarf for squealing on someone WHO DESERVED TO BE SQUEALED UPON. If the poor, hapless working schmuck needs the job enough, he should be taking it seriously enough to follow the safety rules set in place regardless of how inconvenient they are--otherwise, he should not be performing that function.
