A legitimate ethical dilemma was raised on NCIS Season 12 Episode 8.
It centered on an ex-Navy corpsman who was charged with a crime… for saving the lives of two folks injured in a car accident?!?
Yes, a law actually exists that is meant to prevent unlicensed medical workers from giving attention to those in need. It’s meant to protect the public from posers, but this NCIS episode showed how it can be misapplied.
Once Gibbs learned that a veteran was under arrest for acting as a Good Samaritan, he did all he could to clear her name. And he mostly did, at least ensuring that Anna Dillon doesn’t spent time behind bars.
But the district attorney still made Dillon agree to community service in order to keep the law intact and not set a precedent that it simply be broken when certain situations call for it.
