    Jackie should have pointed out that these four DID act to 'help,' even if it was without realizing they were doing so. The video, even it couldn't be used in a future trial, COULD BE USED TO IDENTIFY THE CARJACKER.

    Objection. ~3 minute mark. Prioritizing the video evidence is reasonable. It contains both proof of the crime, and the identity of the car-jacker. Pursuit may or may not lead to apprehension, and choosing to pursue instead would be choosing to lose the video evidence.

    Heh JK but in all seriousness... I am not american but I really doubt the "Good Samaritan law" works like that... wtf rly?
    As if enforcing ppl for good will when it's not THEIR JOB, was ever a good idea... sure you can set good Samaritan examples but blatantly enforcing good will from ppl will never work on the long run, humans don't like to being told what to do very often... especially nowadays where ppl get sued for helping out others...
    Honestly I think it has to come from said ppl to go out of their way to help out and even that is subjective to the circumstances at hand.

    Would it have been realistic for all these character witnesses to be brought in to a sentencing hearing after having been convicted of the original crime? Setting aside, of course, the implausibility of the law in the first place. The copious evidence of callous and selfish behavior seems like it *would* be appropriate for arguing that the quartet should be given the maximum sentence once guilt had been established.

    "non assistance à personne en danger" is actually a real thing in France which does happen. And like they say in the show, it's up to 5 years in prison and 75 000 €. It's applicable if you see a person in danger, you know you can help, you know helping will not put you in danger, and you do nothing. For example, if you see a car crash, see a person is hurt, still alive, drive away and don't even call 911, then you can be arrested under that law, especially if that person dies. Usually it's more a thing that's added to the sentence of a person causing the car crash and fleeing the scene. In Seinfeld, they could be arrested for not calling 911 if they knew the gun was real, and knew the victim was in danger. But any good attorney would argue that if they saw a gun, they couldn't really call 911 in a safe manner, fearing the robber would see them and shoot them. I'm disappointed that you didn't research that law in France (and it also exists in Germany).

    Interesting. I'm from Germany and the law over here is almost exactly like they show on Seinfeld, with the exception, that you cannot be held responsible, if you had to take a risk yourself while helping others. Also it's very rarely enforced. It's just a contingency for people who act like dicks in emergency situations.

    E,g, if you see somebody drowning and you could throw them a rescue-ring, you are required to do so, but if you had to swim out there and get them safely back to land you couldn't be held responsible, as it would possibly endanger your life as well.
    The Good Samaritan clause is also in effect, no matter what you. So, if you help in good faith and it can be viewed as a reasonable measure, you cannot be held responsible if you cause harm doing it. on the other hand, if you would drive on after seeing an unconscious body on the road you would most definitely be required to stop and at least call 911.

    I really don't get how a society could ever punish somebody for helping others and frankly I'm also a bit perplexed how people in the US apparently aren't punished for maybe letting somebody die in front of them. If I understand his explanation right, you could stand next to somebody who hangs on for dear life and watch him die without any consequences, even if all you had to do was call for help.

    I get the Seinfeld example is stupid, as there would have been no way for them to stop the robber without incurring risk to themselves and it's also reasonable to expect no punishment if the only thing that was damaged was ones property, but in cases where peoples lives are at risk and you could intervene without problem, you should be required to do so.

    This episode makes a lot more sense if you subscribe to the fan theory that they actually died in the plane, this is their judgement before entering heaven, and their sentence is their allotted time in purgatory. Ultimately, though, it was just a bad episode of Seinfeld and a poor way to end the series.

    So what's the moral of this story? It seems like Jerry is trying to say that he's a terrible person. But is he? If he's terrible then where do I stand on the sliding scale from the most notorious mass murderers and torturers on one side to the most benevolent humanitarians on the other. I always figured I was closer to the Bill Gates of the world but if he's terrible than I couldn't be far behind.

    In Germany we actually have a law that obligates you to help people in danger. We call it "unterlassene Hilfeleistung" which translates to "failure to provide assistance" but it has the big point that you wouldnt have to help if you get in danger yourself. But if there is someone drowning in a pool you would be obligated to get them out, call an ambulance and provide first aid. Also you cant be help responsible for damages that you inflict, like broken rips etc

    The madeup "good samaritin law" had an "as long as it is safe". I would consider yelling and walking toward in progress armed robery unsafe. I guess someone could have called 911 or ran to to fetch an officer that is 200 feet away? The guy who was carjacked was not comfortable yelling to get the attention of an officer while being robbed, Why should Seinfield take more risk than the victom? In 1st aid training, there is a strong "dont add to the injury count". Sienfield is not a trained hostage negotiator, so he would have "helped beyond his training", and be excluded from good sameritan law.
