What would you do?

You and six others are kidnapped, and the kidnapper somehow persuades you that if you shoot dead one of the other hostages, he will set the remaining five free, whereas if you do not, he will shoot all six. (Either way, he'll release you.) What would you do?

He gives me the gun and I shoot the kidnapper. All six and myself are free.

You all gave yourselves third options that don't exist! Cheaters. >_>
Report as
lol That option is there, he gives you the gun to make your decision and you blast him instead! Nobody said the option wasn't there.

I'm a 25 year practicing 5th degree black belt. I would never be in this situation. It would take me just about 20seconds to kill him. Not kidding

Big advantage to the gunman. He could kill you in 1second, in real life a gunman doesn't get close enough to hostages to be disarmed.
Report as
He can kill me in a 1/8 Th of a second but if he was going to explain what the question is big advantage for me.

Ok!

Many other good ideas here, if they were options. Given just what you've listed in the question, I'd kill one to save the others.

Well, it could turn out like this thief who broke into this little ol ladies house. He told her to hand over all her money and jewelry or he'd kill her.
She said "Acts2:38."
The thief froze, allowing time for her to call 911 and get the police there.
The thief was still frozen in his tracks when the police got there. They handcuffed the thief.... But stopped long enough to ask the thief why he froze like that.
His response was:" she said she had an ax and 2 ( two) 38's!!!
Gotta know your scripture!! Lol!
Read Acts 2:38 to see what she was trying to tell him!

Well, he must have another gun, what fool would give his gun to one of his hostages.in reality he would ask you to choose 1 to die, not shoot one . Either way he's letting you go, choose yourself.
