Phoenix, AZ, police today engaged in a pursuit of a suspect driving a stolen vehicle through the downtown area. He was taken into custody after he abandoned the car and a SWAT team stormed the housed he had holed up inside. During the pursuit, two helicopters from rival local news stations covering the events collided in midair and plummeted to the ground, killing all four people inside. When questioned about the suspect's culpability in the events, the Phoenix police chief stated, "I think he will be held responsible for any of the deaths from this tragedy." I'd be interested to hear how y'all feel about such an assertion. Do you agree with the idea that people should be entirely responsible for events in which they are only indirectly or tangentially involved? What sort of standard would you use to distinguish situations where they ought to be held accountable?
