Question description

Scenario:  My wife and I have an argument.  I decide to kill her.  I buy a gun.  I load the gun.  I come home with a loaded gun looking for my wife.  I see her in the kitchen.  She sees the gun and runs.  I chase her.  She runs out the front door.  I point the gun at her and shoot.  She ducks.  The bullet misses her.  And across the street, directly in the line of flight of the bullet, a terrorist is about to kill our neighbor.  But the bullet hits the terrorist in the left buttock.  It is a non-lethal wound, but it is enough to disable the terrorist long enough for our neighbor to capture the terrorist.

Write one paragraph where you analyze that scenario from a utilitarian perspective.

Write one paragraph where you analyze that scenario from a deontological (Kantian) perspective.

Each paragraph should be well developed, with at least six sentences.
