I need help with a Philosophy question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Dorothy is an eyewitness to a crime: A man has robbed a bank, but instead of keeping the money for himself, he donates it to a poor orphanage that can now afford to feed, clothe, and care for its children. Dorothy knows who committed the crime. If she goes to the authorities with the information, there’s a good chance the money will be returned to the bank, leaving a lot of kids in need. Dorothy is unsure what she should do.
