Role Conflict – Police Officer

During Katrina, this New Orleans police officer was caught in a dilemma between police and family obligations.


Although the officer at the end of the clip says it was a no-brainer as to the decision he made, he later in the interview indicates the adverse consequences of failing to fulfill his police role (e.g., constant feelings of regret, nightmares). Do you think the officer made the right choice morally? What choice would you have made?
